It is with sadness that we announce the passing of our brother Benny on September 2, 2011. He is at peace now after a long battle with cancer. Life began August 26, 1941 in Docou Village of Kowloon, China. In 1948, Benny, Allen and Mom reunited with our dad in Chemainus. Here is where he grew up with his five brothers. Benny graduated from U.B.C. with a medical degree, completed his internship in Spokane, Wash. and then went to McGill to become an internal surgeon. Benny was well respected in many parts of Canada, including Tuktoyuktuk, Labrador, Montreal, Vancouver, Ladysmith, Cowichan and Nanaimo where he applied his profession. Predeceased by his younger brothers Johnny and Frank, Mom (Kwan Heing) and Dad (Tei Tai). He will always be fondly remembered by his brothers and their families; Allen and Janice, Jimmy and Peggy, Gordon and Florence, Harry and Suzanne, Ronald and Miho and many nieces and nephews. Thank you to the medical staff in Cowichan and Nanaimo for the care they extended to Benny. Visitation was held at Telford’s of Ladysmith, 112 French Street, Thurs. Sept. 8th 1:00 – 3:00.
A graveside service was held on Friday, Sept. 9th at 11:30 am at the Chemainus Cemetery. In lieu of flowers donations to the Canadian Cancer Society would be gratefully accepted.
