THE LATE PETER Y S FU
PAST INTERNATIONAL DIRECTOR, LIONS CLUBS INTERNATIONAL

The Late PID Peter Fu Yun Siak donated $100,000 in 2003 to kick start the Lions Community Service Foundation after it was officially registered as a Charity in Singapore. As the donation was designated to the Lions Home for the Elders, the fund was transferred to Lions Home and duly acknowledged by its Management Board as a donation from the Foundation.

A Charter member of the Lions Club of Singapore East, PID Peter Fu had been the President of his club for two consecutive years in the late 1960’s, and a couple of years later in 1971. He served as Governor of District 308 and was Chairman of the first Forum for Orient and South East Asia Lions (OSEAL) to be held in Singapore and MD308. Peter was Forum Chairman again 14 years later when the Forum rotated back to Singapore, earning him the coveted award of the Ambassador of Goodwill, the highest award bestowed by Lions Clubs International to a member for service of distinction.

A humble man of inestimable talents and refined manners, he amassed a fortune but, by his own account, without the benefit of a formal education. “You are now on your own to either float like a cork or sink like a rock!” That challenge and Peter’s exemplar qualities led to a highly diversified multinational business empire! Though extremely busy with his business affairs he
remained passionately committed to the Lions objectives “to serve the indigent and needy members of the community” and “to unite the Lions in bonds of friendship and mutual understanding”.

Through his many initiatives, he became a pillar of Lionism in this region. He founded MD308 and served as its first Council Chairperson in 1983. He established a RM100,000 trust fund to enable the MD Council of Governors to promote unity and harmony among its members in its three countries.

As he firmly believed that Lionism could only succeed through harmony, he encouraged the formation of the Lions Community Service Foundation in Singapore after it became a separate district within the MD. He was the Chairman of the pro-tem committee that registered the LCSF with the Registrar of Societies and was so supportive of the idea that the Lions in Singapore could be united in raising funds through a single entity for the benefit of all our programmes that he donated $100,000 to kick-start the Foundation.
