I am saddened to learn this news. Y. F Yang's knowledge and expertise, which he shared generously, has guided at least 3 generations of collectors.

I met him in November 1978 on my first visit to Hong Kong. At that time he had a shop inside Ocean Terminal, Kowloon. Being a student on limited budget I was barely able to afford one bottle - an attractive agate which I still have.

Unfortunately I never met him again. The next time I had an opportunity to visit Hong Kong was sixteen years later, in 1994. I found his shop (which had relocated to a shopping arcade in the nearby Hong Kong Hotel), where I met his son Stanley, who informed me that his father had moved to Hawaii.
