It is with sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of King Chung (Gen) Yuen on Thursday, March 4, 2021 in the 88th year of his remarkable life. Gen passed away peacefully at Sunnybrook Hospital surrounded by the love of his children and grandchildren.
Gen will now be reunited with his loving wife and partner of 52 years, Betty Pik-Har Yuen. He is survived by his four children, Sally (her partner Carle), Nellie Chai (her partner Hugh), Elaine, and Alex (his partner Cheryl) and his beloved Grandchildren Harrison and Olivia.
Born in Taishan, Guangdong, China, Gen arrived in Canada in 1949, sponsored by his cherished Grandfather, Charlie Yuen.
Working and apprenticing in kitchens across Canada, Gen acquired the culinary skills and business acumen to open up his own restaurant in Collingwood, Ontario. With his devoted wife beside him, he operated the Bamboo Terrace for 36 successful and memorable years.
In his years of retirement, he resided in his Scarborough condo, close to his family and friends.
Gen’s work-ethic, culinary talent, wonderful sense of humour, and warm smile will be fondly remembered and greatly missed by all who knew him.
In Lieu of flowers the family wishes donations made to Sunnybrook Hospital Foundation or The Canadian Diabetes Association.
