We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Peter Lih-Kung Woo 吳立功先生, a beloved husband, brother, father, grandfather, and a great friend to many. He passed away peacefully at home in Toronto with his family by his side on March 28, 2021 at the age of 92.
Peter was born on September 24, 1928 in Changzhou, China. He was the eldest son of Ren Caizhang and Wu Da Ke. He graduated from the University of Shanghai in 1952, with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering. Peter was extremely dedicated to his career, working tirelessly in the steel and iron trading industry to provide a better life for his family. He served as Chairman of the board for W&Y International Ltd. and was a member of various industrial associations, spanning multiple countries such as the United States and Japan.
He had a passion for traveling with family and friends. His favourite companion of all was his wife Lillian of 65 years. Their adventures brought them to many places around the world including Asia, Europe, North America and Australia. He also enjoyed learning various types of exercises to improve holistic health. Every morning, he made it a priority to practice the exercises he learned from his father before going on his daily walks and carrying on with his routine. His warmth, radiating smile, and extroverted personality allowed him to make meaningful relationships no matter where he went, whether it was at restaurants, medical offices, or banks he frequented.
Peter battled prostate cancer courageously with his family’s support. He is survived by his wife Lillian, his daughters Gabrielle, Angela, Doris, Margaret, his siblings Yong, Cheng, Pan, Zhen, Ping, He, Quan, and his grandchildren Jonathan, Angelina, Alana, Arina, Arthur, and Justin.
