Chris Sheng's Bio, Family
Chris Sheng was born on August 15, 1979, under the zodiac sign of Leo. His parents raised him in Chicago, Illinois, USA. Chris often talks about his parents on social media.
From what he has revealed, his father passed away in 2008 after a 10 year battle with cancer. He shared a picture of himself, his mum and his dad, as he dedicated a long caption to his father.
“As of late I’ve wondered who he was as a person (not necessarily as a father, son, husband or brother). Like what was he thinking about in this picture? What was he doing the day before or the day after? Unfortunately, I’ll never get the chance to ask these questions. I’ve had to make peace with that fact.”
He then continued talking about how much of an impact his father had left on those he knew, “He had a lasting impression on those he left behind. Today I found myself proud, happy, sad, nostalgic, peaceful, appreciative, patient - so many random feelings. I knew my dad as 2 people. The tough, disciplinarian immigrant (pre-cancer) and the pensive, almost buddha-esque philosopher (post-cancer).”
