Ken Kin Chi Cho was born on January 8th, 1948 in Toi Shan, China and passed away peacefully on October 21st, 2019 after a short battle with pneumonia. Ken is a humorous, carefree and optimistic person. He loves talking, eating, fishing and trying new things. Unlike some people his age, he doesn’t shy away from challenges and in recent years picked up learning to go online and using apps on his phone. He loves spending time with family and was sadly predeceased by his loving wife, Lisa Lai Sheung Cho and brother-in-law, Ching Leung Liu. He will be missed by his daughter, Diane Cho (Norman); son Richard Cho, two granddaughters, Chloe Chang and Kayli Chang and in-law, Sally Chang, all from Vancouver. We will all miss his contagious laughter, playful nature and his kind and caring spirit.

The memorial services will be held at 2pm Saturday, November 9th at Forest Lawn Funeral Home

Ken Chow

October 24, 2019

The first time I met Bui Gor (older cousin of my wife) was about 30 years ago.  I felt an immediate attachment to him.  He was special and unique in that way.  He just made me naturally comfortable around him as though I had known him all my life.  Though he lived in Vancouver, the distance never broke the special bond.  Through the years, there were a few visits and the usual phone calls at Christmas.  He was just a pleasure to be with and talk to.  
He would talk to me, my wife and her brothers on multiple occasions...gave us advice, and guided us, but in a very humble and non-intrusive way.  I think that's what made him special.  He was genuine and caring; I could feel that he genuinely cared.
