Leon Chung Leung Yue
July 28, 1944 – September 23, 2018
Leon Yue passed away in Vancouver on Sunday September 23rd at the age of 74. Born in Chungking China on July 28th 1944, he was the eldest of five children. Coming from humble beginnings, he worked hard in his studies, eventually becoming a Lawyer who was well known and respected in the Vancouver Chinese community.
He came to Canada as a student in the Sciences, coming to UBC for graduate studies in Physics. He later moved to Law and with his partners, opened a Law Practice in Vancouver Chinatown. Throughout the years he established himself in the community with his legal work and the work through the Rotary Club of Vancouver.
Although three years ago a major medical event nearly ended his life, we are grateful for his survival, and truly appreciative for all the time his family and friends had with him these last several years.
He is survived by his children: Olivia Brandt, and Arthur Yue, and his grandchildren, Aubrey and Phoebe Brandt, and Evelyn Yue.
Funeral Service will be held on Thursday, October 11th at 10am at Ocean View Funeral Home. Should you wish to honour our Father, please make a charitable donation of your choice in memory of Leon Yue.

On behalf of the University of Hong Kong (HKU), the Alumni Office offers sincere condolences to the family of Leon Yue upon his passing.
Leon graduated from HKU in 1966 with a Bachelor of Science and although he moved to Canada, he remained close to his alma mater as past president and long-time legal advisor of the Hong Kong University Alumni Association British Columbia Chapter (HKUAABC).
We are forever grateful for his work with HKUAABC and admire the legacy of good work he left behind. Leon will be justifiably remembered for all he accomplished and greatly missed by all those whose lives he touched.
With deepest sympathy,
The University of Hong Kong
