Viewing: December 20, 2018 (Thursday) from 2:00 to 4:00 and 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Ei-King "Robert" Shen, 71 of Gaithersburg, Maryland, passed away peacefully on Monday, December 17, 2018. He is survived by his loving wife, Tsai Lien "Tracy"; daughter, Joey; brothers, Ei-Hu and Steve; sister Eifeng; and nieces and nephews, Jennifer, Betty, Jonathan, Andy, and Jasper.

Born on February 17, 1947 in Nanjing, China to the late Chao and Shya Shen, Robert moved to Taiwan with his parents at a young age. He was very passionate about his work. With dedication and great instinct, he became one of the biggest names and leading exporters in Taiwan's denim industry during the 1970s.

Socially, Robert was an impeccable dancer with a great sense of humor, which made him the life of any party and adored by his friends. He was the best partner to watch any news show or sporting event with, always shared the most insightful analysis and commentaries.

Even during his battles with colon cancer and leukemia, Robert stayed positive and resilient. Though he was taken away from us too soon, we will love and miss him dearly.

Friends may call at DeVol Funeral Home, 10 East Deer Park Drive, Gaithersburg, MD on Thursday, December 20, 2018 from 2 p.m. to 4 p. m. and 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. 

Please share your fond memory of Robert with us and sign the guestbook below. Thank you. 

我的爸爸申一京外表看起來很嚴肅,其實他是一個心腸最軟的人。我記得唸國中的時候,有天半夜,忘記為了什麼原因,我一個人躲在棉被裡偷偷地哭。爸爸聽到以後,在我床邊坐了好久,一直摸著我的頭,耐心安慰我

在來美國以前,他從來沒有下過廚房。來了美國以後,他的拿手菜是豆干肉絲、蕃茄豆腐蛋花湯、跟各式的炒飯。爸爸的炒飯粒粒分明、透著微微鍋巴的焦香。每次最期待爸爸從冰箱拿出前一天沒吃完的隔夜飯,代表今天晚餐又有好吃的炒飯!

爸爸曾經是1970年代台灣牛仔褲業最厲害的推手之一。每次講起這段故事,他總是兩眼閃著光芒、臉上帶著自信的表情。他的品味也表現在自己的穿著上,就算是T恤、牛仔褲,也搭配地瀟灑有型。有次逛街,爸爸幫他自己、阿姨跟我,三個人挑了同樣一款的寬腳牛仔褲。在20年前,還沒有流行寬褲的年代,我們也算是引領流行了吧!那條牛仔褲穿了好多年,一直穿到破洞,都還非常有型。

每個人提到爸爸,最常讚嘆的就是:“Robert跳舞跳得真好!他不會說台語,可是台語歌卻唱得很好。每次聽到思慕的人,腦海裡總是會閃過他閉著眼睛、搖頭唱歌的樣子。但是我一直到了高中以後才知道爸爸好玩的這一面。記得第一次跟他和朋友吃飯,他席間幽默風趣、談笑風生的樣子讓我好驚訝。原來我爸這麼會說笑

小的時候很崇拜爸爸,覺得爸爸對什麼事情都很有自己的見解。舉凡作文、週記需要題目或是評論時事,第一時間就是跟爸爸求救。跟著爸爸看新聞、看球賽,聽他解說歷史背景、優劣分析。自己也從完全不懂到對各個球隊、球員如數家珍。直到回台以後,再也不看球賽,因為少了一個最專業的解說員在旁邊細細評論。

爸~你走得太突然,來不及好好跟你道別。只希望你沒有罣礙、一路好走。We love you!
