Chong Phuc Ho passed away November 14th 2020 at 6:05 PM in the Comox Valley in the care of his wife, children, and grandchildren.

Chong was tremendously loved and cared for by all his family and friends. He was a strong father, grandfather and husband who took pride in his independence and incredible fortitude. Having survived and battled through countless adversities in Vietnam, he supported his wife and 6 children while holding high status, success and work ethic. Chong immigrated to Canada from Vietnam alongside his family in the 1970s taking on the enormous feat of building a new home and life from the ground up in Calgary, Alberta. We are forever grateful to Chong for providing his family and many generations to come, with the privilege and opportunities to live the best lives we are able to, here in North America.

He is survived by his wife, Mui, 6 children, 14 grandchildren, 1 great grandchild and a bevy of extended family and friends. He will be forever missed and remembered by all who loved him.

I will miss seeing him watch english TV shows or movies with zero volume (since he didn't understand English and was hard of hearing so he didn't need sound anyways). I will miss seeing the new projects he would build around the house. Most were a safety hazard or not up to code like his garage/shed or basement renovation leaving a large 8 x 12 window as the only escape route in case of an emergency. I will miss most of all his facetime calls to check up on wonton (yes he actually learned how to use wechat on his phone) even when sometimes he would hardly say a word or just stare at the phone with no emotions.  I will definitely miss our adventures which usually started with him calling me and saying he needed something done but wouldn't tell me what that was no matter how many times I asked until I got there. One time I went to his house and he just said let's go for a car ride and we drove to this industrial area and parked somewhere in an alley. I honestly thought we were going to be doing something illegal like selling stolen puppies or buying contraband. Turns out he wanted me to sell his scrap metal but didn't want to do it himself because he knew the people working there. He stayed in the alley while I drove to the scrap metal yard across the street. I was totally out of place and the people there gave me funny looks and asked where I got all this scrap metal from but they still took the goods and gave me the money. I never got a cut of that profit.

Everybody had a different kind of relationship with grandpa. He wasn't the most easiest person to be around or talk to sometimes and he may not have shown it through actions or words but in his heart he definitely loved each and every one of us in his own unique way.  He wouldn't want us to be sad or hold onto any regrets, if we are happy then he is happy too.

Grandpa always came up with creative solutions to any problems like his tip for being the last one standing at a party. He told me that he was just able to handle his liquor but grandma said it's because he's tricky and gets others drunk first. I will always wonder how he managed to move the fridge down to his basement, the 70 inch tv to different walls in his living room or how he removed his very heavy sliding porch door all by himself. He never took no for an answer which most recently was his desire to get an electric bike.  Due to safety concerns,  we tried to convince him to get the old people scooters or a tricycle instead but he said that they were not fast enough. I think it's because he didn't want something made for old people,  he had a reputation to uphold. Even the person selling the electric bike was concerned about selling it to an 85 year old grandpa. He was adamant on grandpa physically testing it out in front of him to see if he was capable of handling it and making us promise to not let grandpa make any kind of modifications for safety reasons. Grandpa is like the asian Tim Taylor from the Home Improvement show. He needs to take apart and modify everything.

I believe that he had a great life and lived it to his fullest. Whatever he wanted,  he went out and got it.  Whatever he wanted to do he did it.  If you told him he couldn't get something or do something, I could pretty much guarantee that the next time you saw him it would already be done or he would have whatever it is you said he couldn't have.

One of my fondess memory of grandpa was when he was living with my family when I was younger.  He would often sneak me full sized Mr. Big chocolate bars and not tell my parents. As I got older,  he upgraded his gifts to expired 711 bucks or Canadian Tire money.

Lucky
I am the lucky one to know Dad and to receive his care and love like one of his own. I was so touched that he hold another dinner for Mom’s birthday because we can’t make it the day before because we have company Christmas party. At that point I know he took me in as his daughter not Sinh “god sister “
He will be missed and always hold a special place in our hearts.

Stubborn
Here is the story for you guys...
It was last summer, Kenny and I bumped to him at Home Depot. He was there to pickup a couple of 2x4 wood so we asked him how he planned to bring them home in his CRV ? Guess what ? He took out and hand saw and cut them out right at the parking lot and fitted in his CRV !

Praise

He was so proud of himself when we asked him how he did he put up a 75 inches TV on to the stand by himself.
To this day my honey is still can not figure it out!

Family

I agreed with Annie that Dad love to have family gathering and packed his house like a can of sardines but we love those moments and will cherished & forever grateful to be part of his family.

We love you Dad.
