<div itemprop="description">It is with great sadness that we announce the passing away of our father Pong Yek Lum at the age of 91. He passed away peacefully at the Montreal General Hospital on February 20, 2022. Born in Hong Kong, he came to Canada when he was 17 years old to join his father Jan Wah Lum in Sudbury Ontario. He was pre-deceased by his wife Kwai Hing Woo (1936 -2013) who he married in 1956 in Hong Kong; and then moved to Pembrooke, Ontario and settled in Montreal, Quebec. He worked in restaurants until the 1980s then changed a few jobs before working in a pharmacy until his retirement at the age of 65. During his retirement, he was much involved in the Chinese community activities (practicing tai chi, singing in Chinese choirs, and even being Santa Claus).
