    So blessed to have met Yeung at Nick and Tina’s wedding. His sweet spirit shone through.

    There were three brothers and one sister in the Wong family. Yeung was the youngest of the brothers, Harold, Paul, and Yeung, plus their youngest sister, Xing Huan, and they were true to each other. He was a free spirit, kind, and friendly coming to the U.S. and settling in Sacramento but not before stints in Oregon and Montana. He was also a strong swimmer and attempted to swim across the Pearl River to escape from China to Macau 10 times, but was caught and sent back. Finally he was granted his wish to leave for Hong Kong. Yeung had a distinctive laugh all his own, was always willing to listen, was definitely hard working, and loved food. He had jobs as a sous chef learning eastern and western cuisines, a butcher in a meat shop, co-owner of a grocery store with Paul in Yuba City, and a butcher at the McClellan Air Force Base in Sacramento before he retired. He loved his family, wife Sau Kuk and their two daughters, Emily (husband Henry, grandson Andrew) and Tina (husband Nick), and was devoted to his mother who considered only Yeung’s home her home. When he first immigrated here from Hong Kong, he used to visit us in San Jose bringing us roasted chicken, roasted pork, and San Francisco Chinatown’s famous apple pie to our whole family’s delight. We also visited them often in Sacramento for grandma’s birthdays and holidays. He was always generous and cooked us the best of his specialties, and Sau Kuk would make the excellent Jian Dui for Chinese New Year. In his latter years, he had deteriorating health setbacks with worsening medical conditions, yet he remained positive with no complaints. We were lucky to visit him in January, and he was courageous and fought his last battle with all his might with his family by his side. He regained his freedom now less all the physical entanglements, and He is at peace and smiling at us. We will miss you Yeung. Harold, Catherine, Thomas & Carolyn
