Born December 22, 1922, in Hong Kong, loving father of Liza Cheuk May, Lina Cheuk Ling, the late Lilian Cheuk Lin (2014), and Vivian Cheuk Wai, doting grandfather of Juliana Ka Yan Li, and beloved husband of the late Eva Ho Chan (2003), transcended peacefully at 6 a.m. on Thursday, August 20, 2015, at The Hôtel-Dieu Grace Hospital, Windsor, Ontario, Canada. He is sorely missed by his grieving family, and many relatives and friends.
He was a Scout Master with the 13th Boy Scouts Troop, Hong Kong District, where he met his future wife, Eva. He was also active for many years in the Hong Kong Civil Aid Service, rising to the rank of Warden. As a young man, he joined the trading company, T. O. Wong & Co. Ltd. in Hong Kong, and retired as its director in 1977. He and his wife Eva then opened a Chinese antiques shop, Chan & Ho, in Central, fulfilling a cherished dream. Not one for early retirement, he was active as a successful real estate agent until his emigration with Eva to Windsor in 1993 so as to live close to his daughters.
He was an avid collector of all things collectible, an enthusiastic gardener, and a very happy traveler. In his later years, he enjoyed devoting much time to perfecting his lifelong practice of Chinese brush calligraphy. Above all, he was the ultimate cheerleader for and sage counsellor to his daughters and granddaughter.
