Edward Paul Chan


On April 4, 2014, Edward passed away peacefully at his Okemos, Michigan home after a year long struggle with cancer; he was surrounded by family and friends.  Edward was 40-years old.  Edward grew up in Bay City, Michigan, and he was the third child of Dr. Paul (deceased) and Lynne Chan.  Edward was a loving husband to Molly Chan, and devoted father to Piper (10), Arabella (8), and Tyler (5). 

Edward graduated from Michigan State University and began a successful professional career, establishing his own business, Alliance Payment Solutions, Inc., in 2003.  Edward was an avid tennis player, pilot, Big Brother Big Sister volunteer, and a dependable and handy friend who could fix anything.  Edward lived life to the fullest, and he touched the lives of those fortunate to know him.

Edward was preceded in death by his father, Dr. Paul Chan.  He is survived by his mother, Lynne Chan; wife, Molly Chan; children, Piper, Arabella, and Tyler; brother, Chris (Sandy) Chan;  sister, Paula (Scott) Edelstein; fourteen nieces and nephews; and numerous friends and family who will deeply miss him.
