Eliot Tso Liang

EAST FISHKILL - Eliot Tso Liang, 91, a Dutchess County area resident since 1966, died on Monday, June 9, 2014 at his home.

Born in Kiangsi Province, China on May 22, 1923, he was the son of Meru Lee and Gikan Liang.

Eliot was in the Chinese military academy and a cadet on board a merchant marine ship sailing around the world. He received his degree in maritime administration at the National Chia-Tung University in Shanghai in 1949. After he immigrated to the US, he completed a BSME at the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn, with honors in the Tau Beta Pi association. Working himself through school and supporting his growing family, Eliot obtained his MSME from Columbia University in 1964.

In 1967 Eliot was hired as a mechanical engineer for IBM East Fishkill, the world's largest semiconductor manufacturing plant at that time. During his 23 year career at IBM he played an integral part in the design and construction of the East Fishkill facilities.

Eliot enjoyed many activities throughout his life, such as tennis, ping pong, and travel to over 60 countries. Beyond his retirement years his passion became playing club volleyball with the East Fishkill Recreation Department. In January 2013, he was awarded "All Time Leading Scorer" at the age of 90. Most of all, Eliot enjoyed spending time with his wife and family.

Eliot is survived by the love of his life, Amy Wan. He is also survived by his children and their spouses, Linda and Stephen Halpert of New Canaan, CT, Grace and Daniel Federman of Newtown, CT, Philip and Shin Liang of Elkridge, MD; and his grandchildren, Christopher, Melissa, Michelle, Erica, Benjamin, Justin and Jessica. His hearty laugh, sense of humor and youthful energy will be greatly missed.

Calling hours will be held on Thursday from 6-8pm at the McHoul Funeral Home, Inc., 895 Route 82, Hopewell Junction, NY. The funeral service will be held on Saturday at 11am at the Hopewell Reformed Church, 143 Beekman Road, Hopewell Junction with Rev. Taylor Holbrook officiating.
