Lau Kue Yuke (aka Kwock Yang) was born on September 4, 1925 in China and passed away on Tuesday, December 22, 2020 in Sacramento, CA. He joins his beloved wife, Foon, who passed away on December 2, 2020.
They were married in March 1947 and emigrated to the United States shortly after their marriage; grateful for the opportunities afforded them in the United States.
Fresh water fishing, following the stock market, trying out every new restaurant that opened up in Sacramento, puttering around in the backyard and in the garden, were some of the favorite things Yuke enjoyed. And of course, he always looked forward to seeing his grandchildren. As granddaughter Michele shared this memory – “Grandpa always wore a bill cap”. He was always on the lookout for a ‘good deal’. When grocery shopping, it wasn’t unusual for him to shop at 3 different stores, capturing the best price for steak! Those summer barbeques were so memorable!
Yuke is survived by his son Richard Yang and wife Irene, daughter Carrie Yang, daughter Virginia Yang Staehlin and husband William, daughter Diane Staebler and husband Chad. His grandchildren include Lisa Yang, Alex Staebler, Michele Yang, and Christopher Staebler. Yuke is predeceased by his wife Foon, daughter Lei Ho’ong, son Franklin Yang and daughter-in-law Fay Ann Wong Yang.
We miss you Pop – you taught us values, ethics, humility, and honor. We love you!

    I have known mr and mrs yang since the 60’s in Merced, when I became best friends with Gin. They both had a great work ethic which was passed down to their children. Both “mom and dad“ relied on each other and started the best Chinese restaurant in Merced prior to Sacramento. I’m sure they have already found Marjon partners in heaven , My condolences to the family, may they find comfort in memories until we meet again
