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.

I am deeply sorry to hear of your loss. From the photo, Peter seemed a happy person (and Michael, you share the same big smile). To read his story reflects my own father's journey through life, where he also keeps family at the top of his mind.

It is a special person that touches so many lives like this and I am sure that he will be missed, but also that he has left behind some wonderful memories. Cherish them forever.

My condolences to the entire Yeung family.

I am terribly sorry to hear the news of your father's passing. From the few words that I read about him, he seems to have left you a great legacy and a wonderful example of an honest and respectable life.
I hope you find consolation in the memories that you shared together, and especially in your last and most precious hour that you spent with him.

My deepest sympathies are with you and the Yeung family.

My husband and I are deeply saddened by the passing of Uncle Yeung. We will remember him not only as a talented businessman, but also as a kind and cheerful uncle. Uncle Yeung was, and continues to be, a great inspiration to many. We will miss him so much ........

With our deepest sympathy to the Yeung family.
