At Edmonds I met with Louis Several times to discuss education issues (something he was passionate about). I also took one of his SQL classes to 'brush up' - the class was instructive but also fun, he had a tendency to introduce one -liners and off the cuff remarks that I thought were hilarious (and kept you actively listening so you wouldn't miss anything)...He's going to be sorely missed.

I didn't met my uncle until later on in my teen years. He was a very caring and generous person.
One of the first time I met was in Seattle. My family was on our way back from Hong Kong to Canada. Our plane had mechanical issues and landed in Seattle. He came to settle us into the hotel and took us back to the airport the next day. While most people would have left after we got on the plane, he waited until we taxi. While he was waiting, he noticed that one of the engine was not turning and he quickly when to the ticket counter to line up for us so we can get home back to Canada without long delays again.
As most of you know, my uncle was a computer geek so to say. He was so generous and he probably thought it was cool that I should have a computer too. So he brought me the first Pentium from Gateway. It came in a book with cow patches. It was a lot of money back then. I was so grateful because it really helped me at university because the speed of the computer also contribute the the speed of the dial-up internet modem connection. His computer has been instrumental helping me with my studies.
I knew when my uncle told me of his diagnosis that his life on earth was limited as gastric cancer is often a late diagnosis in North America. I am glad that we had a chance to talk about his treatments and his course while in hospital and that he was a great uncle and that I loved him (rarely is our culture to express our feelings).
When someone pass away, he is not really gone. He leaves behind a legacy to those who are close to him. For me, he left a legacy of kindness and generosity. He will be truly missed.

I met professor Louis Ho only few times. I had just started teaching Web Development at Monroe Campus and professor Ho, graciously shared with me his class materials on canvas, as well as his expertise, and experience. When there was an issue or something missing he always made sure that it was corrected on time, by contacting canvas IT desk help, or sending the information in a different way. I never had to ask twice. In reading his materials, I noticed that professor Ho appreciably cared for his students, shared with them not only knowledge but his own experience in an engaging and interesting way. Professor Ho will be greatly missed.

The first time I met uncle Louis was at his wedding reception in Calgary. Although I don't remember very much about the occasion as I was only 8 years old at the time, what I do remember of him is his personality: kind, friendly, generous, and easy going.

Even though we lived in two different countries, he and auntie Tracy always found time to visit their aunt (my grandmother) and other relatives in Vancouver. Uncle Louis was always the one who initiated/organized these family gatherings via WhatsApp, trying to bring the family together. He was a foodie and loved to enjoy and share good foods like dim sum! He also handed out generous red pockets with joy whenever he visited us during Chinese New Years.

Every time we met in person, he would always invite my family to visit Seattle/stay at his place. We had actually planned to visit last year when our son was a little older, but of course, everything took a pause due to the pandemic. I'm so thankful I was able to share many special occassions and moments with him in the last several years, but regret that we could not see last year and that we will not have the chance to introduce our infant daughter to him. Uncle Louis will be missed dearly and I look forward to seeing him again in heaven again.

Although I'm relatively new to the family I feel like Uncle Louis was one of my favourite beloved uncles. He was very kind and generous with his family and friends. I remember Esther telling me of all the times he bought her the latest technology such as a new computer for school and all the red pocket money she got from her favourite beloved uncle. He and auntie Tracy usually visited us and his around Christmas time. I always looked forward to that and to celebrate that joyous time of year with them. He and Tracy visited us so many times, I regret that we only were able to visit him once in Seattle. It was a great trip though full of a lot of memories including a very extensive driving tour of the Microsoft campus. With such a kind and generous heart I have no doubt that he is in Heaven and I look forward to oneday seeing him again.

Over the past several years, I enjoyed having conversations with Louis about higher education and improving students' experiences at Edmonds College. Louis was such a passionate educator, and I will miss our discussions and having him as a colleague. May he rest in peace, and may his family find joy in knowing that Louis impacted many lives.

Though we spent almost every Sunday together for family dinner the last couple decades, we didn’t have that luxury the last year due to Covid, then also after Uncle Louis was diagnosed with cancer. My fondest memories of Uncle Louis include him trying to teach me how to drive his stick shift car. He was determined to teach me and after dinner, we went to the empty Costco parking lot for a few weeks until I finally got the hang of it. I will always remember his patience and sense of humor. Other memories include him and food. He always loved food and loved sharing food. Even when he was sick and not feeling well, he would invite us over because he ordered food, or he would send us links to new restaurants to try, or one he and Aunt Tracy tried. I will always remember him for his quirkiness, like when he jumped into the pool fully clothed, his passion to specific discussions, and ultimately the love he had for my Aunt Tracy. You will be truly missed, but I know you are no longer in pain and enjoying a feast in Heaven.

I worked in the same department as Louis at Edmonds Community College (now Edmonds College). Before the pandemic, I used to talk to him in the breakroom at school. It was fun to talk to him even though he was hard to understand sometimes. I was so sad when I heard of his passing.
It's been interesting reading the comments from his family. I loved the story about him giving his nephew 7 Lego sets on his 7th birthday. What a great guy!

Louis was not only a wonderful instructor in the CIS department of Edmonds College, but he also served as the Vice President of Technology on our AFT Local 4254 Executive Council. He was a staunch supporter of our teachers union and the principles for which it stands. He was always kind and helpful to his students and his colleagues.

I worked with Louis Ho at Edmonds College virtually, as I was hired in January of 2021 when the college was mostly remote. I never got the chance to meet him in person, but I looked forward to doing so as he was such a dynamic, dedicated and welcoming person. I was in disbelief and saddened to learn of his illness and passing as Louis never wavered in helping a new colleague (me) or his students. In just a short period of time, he made a huge impact on my outlook and I admired how he led with passion. I think this speaks a lot about the character and legacy of a person when they are able to make the greatest of impacts with just the fewest of interactions. I send my deepest condolences to his family. Prayers and strength to you all. ~ Lola Cotton
