In memory of
楊良業 Leung Yip Peter Yeung
January 25, 1930 -
August 25, 2018
Peter Leung Yip Yeung, 88, peacefully passed away on August 25th, 2018, with his family by his side in Toronto.
Peter spent his youth and early adulthood in China where he learned to fix bicycles. In his 20s, he went to Hong Kong with $10 in his pocket in search for a brighter future. To kick-start his life in Hong Kong, he worked many different jobs with countless of long hours and acquired different life/ work skills. According to Peter, his biggest life accomplishment was marrying the most loving and wonderful wife, Jenny in 1966. Combining the life-savings of Peter and Jenny, they started their first chemical trading business together. Peter did not have much education, but he was a very intelligent, hard working, genuine and helpful person. With these attributes, Peter brought fruition to their business in a very short period of time and became a successful/ respected businessman. He even started his family with Jenny at the same time.
Peter was a very patient person and possessed a tremendous amount of love for his family. He has a strong desire in providing a higher education for his kids, something he could not afford during his childhood. With his family always on the top of his mind, instead of sending his kids overseas to study on their own, Peter sacrificed his successful business in Hong Kong and immigrated together with his family to Canada. In the later part of Peter's life, he picked up new hobbies such as piano and playing with his grandchildren, while practicing his lifelong interest in Chinese chess.
Peter is survived by his wife (Jenny), daughter (Shirley/ Ken), two sons (Jimmy/ Li Ping and Michael/ Anne) and six grandchildren (Emily, Marian, Kyle, Ella, Cadence and Nicholas). Peter was a great role model for his children and showed them how to become a useful member in today’s society. He was also a great husband. Peter and Jenny were deeply in love after 52 years of marriage. Peter will be greatly missed by those he left behind.
