MACAO, China (Global Times) -- Tributes have poured in for Macao casino patriarch Stanley Ho Hung-sun, who died in Hong Kong on Tuesday at the age of 98.

The renowned businessman was well-respected for his achievements in many areas, including being one of the first entrepreneurs to invest in the Chinese mainland when the nation embarked on reform and opening-up in the 1970s, his generosity to charities and donating money to build schools.

"Although we knew this day would finally come, it does not soothe our indescribable sorrow," said Pansy Ho Chiu-king, one of Ho's children. She met the media alongside family members at Hong Kong Sanatorium & Hospital on Tuesday.

Pansy Ho also said her father, who had many businesses and connections in both Macao and Hong Kong, had always "loved the people of Hong Kong" and had earned a great reputation and high social status in the city.
