Anthony Look Hing Herminigild Look Loy was born in 1926 to Aloy and Irene Look Loy.
The second of three (3) boys, Hing King or Tony, as he is fondly known, grew up in Arouca where his parents owned a dry goods shop.
He and his brothers, Victor Look Wah and Martin Look Fong (both deceased), were well known for their participation in sporting and cultural activities, including founding the Wake Island Steel Orchestra.
Hing King received his secondary education at St. Mary’s College in Port of Spain, after which he joined the Public Service, rising to the level of Commissioner of Inland Revenue before his retirement in 1986.
He was also a part time lecturer at the St. Augustine campus of the University of the West Indies in the M.Sc. Accountancy programme and after retirement conducted a thriving consultancy business in taxation matters.
He served as a member of the Board of Holy Cross College Arima for several years.
Hing King served the Santa Rosa R. C. Church as a driver for the Santa Rosa R. C. Church Meals-on-Wheels Lunch Service on a Sunday for the less-fortunate in our Arima community. He was always on standby if ever the Meals-on-Wheels Lunch Service was short on drivers, as he lived around the Santa Rosa Park by the Church.
After his marriage on June 1, 1952 to Callistra “Baby” Barnes (deceased), Hing King settled in Arima, where he led an active social life and was a vibrant member of the Arima community.
Hing King is a proud father of five (5), grandfather of eight (8), and great grandfather of five (5).
