In memory of

李恩榮先生 Yan Wing Li

February 20, 1951 -  March 28, 2020

It is with heavy hearts that we share the news of the passing of Yan Wing Li. He was born February 20, 1951, in Hong Kong, the son of Kwok Keung Li and Pik Lin Chan Li. He was the oldest of five siblings. Wing also leaves behind his wife, Cecilia, for whom he devoted his life to for over 45 years and enjoyed traveling throughout the world by her side, and his daughter, Melinda, his proudest achievement. He also leaves behind his son-in-law, Andrew and his grandchildren Lexi and Andy where his gentle soul lives on.

Wing graduated from the University of Western Ontario as an electrical engineer and was a lifelong employee of Nortel where he specialized in design. He was passionate about designing amplifiers, speakers, and home improvements to name a few. He could usually be found working on circuit boards, creating new designs, making furniture or remodeling the kitchen.

Outside the home, he enjoyed long hikes, riding his bike all day long throughout Toronto, swimming in the ocean, and traveling all around the world.

Wing was a compassionate, patient and gentle person. He was brilliant and had many talents. His friends and family will deeply miss his kind heart and beautiful smile, but his memory will live on in all who knew him and so to, his legacy.

In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations to the Canadian Cancer Society in memory of Yan Wing Li.

Wing brother will always live in our memories. Wish him rest peacefully in heaven. Wish all his beloved will live on happy and healthy thereafter. I believe that is what Wing brother's wish too.

With heavy heart I say goodbye to my dear friend. Miss your resourcefulness and kindness. Although quiet, there were moments that brilliant words came out which lights up the room. Glimpses of our past came flashing by, our western days which made me miss you even more. Rest well my friend and forever be in peace.

God bless...

Tony, Maria and family

I may not be physically present on your last journey (you know why and I know that you are ok with that) but in my own way, I will always remember your smile and your kind heart, your easy going personality and your sense of humor. In some ways, I have always felt closer to you than my two eldest sister and brother. Maybe because we have always been in Canada. You have always been a terrific brother in law and I will cherish those memories!

Stephen, Andy and I will forever remember Wing as a gentle, patient, humble, quiet, kind, easy going and very accommodating person. He never lost temper, raised voice, engaged on arguments.
He was such a brilliant host to us. We will remember how he fetched us to and from airport, the great times we stayed together under the same roof. We will forever miss his stir fry beef, his live oysters, his humming on Phantom of Opera.
While we miss losing such a close and genuine friend, we know he is no longer suffering from sickness and pain. His fond memory will be with us always. May Wing Rest In Peace.

To Cecilia and Melinda:
I am sorry for your loss. Wing had been such a gentle and health conscious person, it's hard to believe that he left us so soon. He was a rock to you and a good friend to us.
Sincerely, Selina Lucas
