慈父刘佩琦,因患肝癌,经多方医治无效,不幸于二零二零年九月十五日凌晨两点五十八分在美国家中安详与世长辞,享年七十三岁。

父亲一九四六年十二月十八日生于湖北省武汉,家中上有兄姐,排行最小。父母早逝,父亲少年时便由亲戚照料在北京生活求学。父亲毕业于北京工业大学无线电专业,并在校时结识母亲田兰允。两人毕业后结婚,经过几年因工作原因造成的两地分居,一九七六年定居天津,至今四十余年。

父亲历任天津计算中心副所长和天津北方技术交易市场副总裁。为表彰其对中国技术市场发展的突出贡献,父亲荣获二零零五年"金桥奖"先进个人。父亲退休生活依旧精彩,偕同母亲游历神州山河包括多次长途自驾行至西部边陲新疆,青海,西藏等省份,且海外足迹遍布四大洲二十余国家和地区。

父亲二零一五年被确诊肝癌晚期,从被判定三至六个月存活期,历经介入手术,靶向药物,放射治疗,免疫调节,到奇迹般获得新生长达五年,是父亲决心,信心和耐心以及医生用心与家人朋友爱心的见证。父亲"与癌相争,永不放弃"的故事被无私分享并收录与书,恩泽激励后来病友。

父亲一生,为人正直,注重家庭,教育子女,严格认真,亲友同事,平易近人,工作事业,一丝不苟,自强不息,精神永存。

亲友追悼会定于二零二零年九月二十二日早八时(北京时间二零二零年九月二十二日晚八时)在美国沃尔瑟姆镇The Joyce Funeral Home举行。谨此讣告。
