Our father, Lau Yin Biu, or King Shung, was born on October 26, 1928 on Chongming Island in Shanghai. He was born into a scholarly family, and his grandfather took the second place of the imperial examination and became a Jinshi official to the Qing Dynasty. Unfortunately, his grandfather contracted smallpox, and was forced to retire and return to his hometown. Growing up, he attended school for two years up until the outbreak of the Second Sino-Japanese war. When he was 11, his father sent him to become a light bulb apprentice in Shanghai where he quickly became a talented and skillful technician in making light bulbs. In 1949, there was an extensive demand for skilled light bulb makers and so he was invited to work in Hong Kong to teach and lead a light bulb apprenticeship in a factory. Since he was a dedicated and responsible teacher, many of his friends and colleagues respected him and called him "Master Lau". While working in Hong Kong, he met our mother, Kwok Kwei Tsun and they got married on June 3rd, 1951. Later, they had 3 sons and 1 daughter. He worked very hard to provide for the needs of his family and he would also send money back to his hometown for his parents and his brothers. He cared immensely about his children's education and did not have any favouritism and so, he provided education to all of his children. In 1988, he emigrated from Hong Kong to Edmonton and to Vancouver in 1994. During his 30 years of life in Canada, he enjoyed the peaceful and beautiful life in Canada and spent lots of time taking care of his grandchildren. Despite growing up and living through personal hardships during a time of turmoil, he was still able to accomplish what he believed was necessary. Although he is now in heaven, his teachings and examples will forever be remembered and he will forever be in our hearts.
