Great Master Wang Pei Sheng, head of Northern Wu Style Taiji Quan group, passed away on the morning of September 3rd, 2004 at age 85 of heart related illnesses arising from complications from an earlier stroke. The funeral was held on September 7th at 11am in Beijing. Several hundreds or so family, friends, and students attended. Amongst them were older generation masters like Li Bing Ci and Feng Zhi Qiang, representatives from various martial art groups and associations in Beijing, and given the short timeframe, some people from outside of Beijing. The auditorium at Ba Bao Shan National Cemetary was not large enough to accommodate everyone at once. Most of the younger students (second generation and later) had to wait outside initially, and come in the pay their respect in groups. The whole proceeding took about two hours.
