OBITUARY

Mr. William Yam Wa Lai

May 27, 1934November 3, 2020

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our father, William Lai. Endearingly known as Bill, he is survived by his wife, 4 children, 7 grandchildren, and 1 great grandchild. He was a cherished husband and father who loved to share his globe-trotting, creative and sometimes outrageously imaginative stories with us.

He worked as an Engineer, travelling the world for a large part of his career and retired as Engineer, Fire Boat for the Vancouver Fire Department (VFD). He was proud of his service for the VFD and his co-workers loved his charisma and cooking!

He loved to exercise with his friends at Queen Elizabeth Park, travel, ballroom dance, sing karaoke, and hang out with mom. Dad… we love you and we will miss you, your beautiful singing voice and your stories. We will keep our memories of you alive and will see you again.
