Monica and Michelle, Greg, Anthony, Mark, Colin and your families,
Although I met Uncle Yukwai only a handful of times, I mourn his loss with you and am thinking of you all this morning. Your wonderful family pictures show a loving father, grandfather and husband. May he rest in peace and love, and may his memory be a blessing forever in your lives.

Uncle Yuckwai lived in Canada for so long, that we hardly met. I was in + out in faraway places . So my memories of him are limited to childhood ones.
I do recall his standout SMILE, it was like a grin really.
He was pleasant and approachable.
I used to be scared of Uncle Yuckchoy because he made scary jokes with me as a young child at St. Vincent Street.
I do feel his loss deeply however.
Rest in Peace dear Uncle. Love your niece Joanne X

You were always there for me when no one was. Stood for the truth when others would hide. Never judged yet voiced the truth
I'll miss your presence and fatherly support.
