Henry Fu-Kwok Lui

Henry Fu Kwok LuiThe Lui family has so many wonderful memories of their time with Henry as husband, father and grandfather. It was the simple things he treasured the most—eating and cooking (barbeque chicken wings were his specialty!), time with his children and grandchildren Tyler and Nate, enjoying time with his friends, good jokes, and he also planned wonderful vacations with his family, from skiing and golfing, to cruising the Baltic and exploring Asia and Europe, to deep sea fishing for tuna and salmon with his son.

In the eulogy prepared by his son Greg, Henry’s love of family was a major theme. Here is a small excerpt:

My dad was always there for us, whether it was helping my sister Elaine with the grandkids, watching me play sports, or making sure that my mom got first pick—whether it was the best piece of fish, the freshest oyster, or the greenest veggies. The relationship between my mom and dad is what I have set as the gold standard.

Sadly, Henry was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in 2010 and died 9 months later at the age of 63. His family was amazed at the courage, strength, and sense of humour he showed to his very last breath.

The family has made The Princess Margaret, specifically the research work of Dr. Lillian Siu and Dr. John Waldron, the beneficiary of 143 gifts totaling over $37,000 donated in Henry’s memory.
