Dr. Wallace Wah Sing Loui, M.D

Posted On January 29th, 2017 -

Dr. Wallace Wah Sing Loui, M.DDR. WALLACE WAH SING LOUI, M.D. A board-certified thoracic surgeon who operated a surgical and general practice on Oahu for 40 years, died January 14, 2017 in Honolulu, age 92. Except for a year in China, and 13 years studying medicine on the Mainland, Dr. Loui spent his life in Hawaii, caring for the medical needs of generations of Island families then enjoying retirement. Dr. Loui was the son of Alicia Loui (Wong Look Moy) who emigrated from China after World War I, and Heong Poo Loui, who operated a hardware store in Chinatown. In 1933, Dr. Loui and siblings accompanied their mother to China. A year later, they returned to Honolulu, though Dr. Loui's elderly father stayed behind, passing away a short time later. As a boy, Dr. Loui helped support his family with a Star Bulletin paper route and a line shift at Dole Cannery. He graduated from St. Louis High where he played football with All-American player Herman Wedemeyer. Seventeen when Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, Dr. Loui found work there during the war helping his older brother Fred install and repair refrigeration units in Navy ships. This work abruptly ended when a steel girder fell on the 19-year-old, crushing his chest, sending him to Tripler for months, and inspiring him to pursue medicine with a specialty in thoracic surgery which focuses on chest disease. After two years at University of Hawaii, Dr. Loui moved to Pennsylvania, and worked his way through a biology degree from Bucknell University; an M.D. from Temple University; and residency and research fellowships in thoracic surgery in Philadelphia hospitals and in Memphis. Dr. Loui returned to Honolulu shortly before Statehood, passed his specialty medical boards including in heart surgery, and cared for the health needs of his patients throughout his distinguished medical career. Besides serving as a Visiting Professor of Surgical Anatomy at the UH School of Medicine, Dr. Loui was honored as a Fellow, American College of Chest Physicians; Fellow, International College of Surgeons; and Fellow, American Society of Abdominal Surgeon. After retirement, he and Patricia Cardinal Loui, his wife and companion of the last 40 years, traveled the world, visiting Europe, Japan, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Australia, and China where in 2007 they and nephew Brian visited the Loui family village in Xi Hui, Guangzhou. He also took a keen interest in orchid cultivation, and was active in Rotary International and Shriners in earlier years. Dr. Loui is survived by his beloved wife and four sons; 10 grandchildren; two sisters in California; and numerous loving nieces and nephews. Earlier, a private prayer service was held at Kuan Yin Temple. A public service will be held February 2 at 6 p.m. at Nuuanu Mortuary, with visitation from 5:30 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Dr. Loui's memory to Temple Medical School Lung Center, P.O.
