Yu Ming Lo, our beloved father, passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by family on November 18, 2022 at the age of 90 (93).
In his teens, our father went to Hong Kong from Shunde District, China. He got his first job at Sinling Dispensary in the Central District and later at Victoria Dispensary, where he met our mom, Suk Ching Chung, who also worked at Victoria Dispensary. After getting married, they partnered with a friend and started a farm. After the closure of the business, they moved to Aberdeen and opened a small Medicine Company. They later expanded their business and opened Ming Wah Medicine Company on Aberdeen Main Road. Subsequently, they had an optical department as well.

In 1977, Our father arranged eldest brother, Stanley to study in Canada. And also arranged Kenny to study in Canada in 1979. Later, Stanley got married in Canada and applied for our family to be immigrated to Canada.
In 1986, our father with family immigrated to Canada to start a new life. Before moving to Canada, our father had everything planned out in advance for his family’s future. At the time, he believed that a one-hour photo shop would be a great business opportunity. He planned with us for several months and officially opened Stan’s Photo in October 1987. It has been in business for 35 years.
Although our father did not have much education, with his self-study, hard work and good business sense, he raised his family from nothing to better life, providing a worry-free lifestyle for his family. He did all these so that we can live in a wonderful country like Canada.
