Our beloved friend, Xiangdong Liu, of Andover, MA, unexpectedly passed away on Thursday, November 4, 2021, at the age of 49, leaving behind his loving wife Tao Yu, and their two sons, Larry Liu and Alex Liu.
Born, raised and educated in JiNan, China, the son of Chengxin Yao and the late Jingming Liu, Xiangdong emigrates to the United States in 1995. After graduate studies at UMass-Amherst and Revere College, Xiangdong had worked in the computer industry and had a bright future.
The Liu family, residents of Andover, and are very involved in the surrounding communities. Xiangdong left his family, friends, and our community much too soon.
Please keep the Liu family in your prayers as the weeks, months, and years ahead are sure to be difficult for them.

We are thankful for any support individuals or organizations may be able to provide.
