It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Ying San (Stan) Yee of Calgary, Alberta on Tuesday, November 27, 2012 at the age of 84 years. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 63 years, Yim Ling; his sons and daughters-in-law Edmond (Blythe), Benjamin (Mari-Car) and Herman (Vivian); as well as his cherished grandchildren Bennett, Maverick, Matthew and Parker. Stan is survived by his sisters Jick Wong and Elsie Mah, who will miss him dearly. Stan was born in Toishan, China and immigrated to Calgary in 1953 when he was 25 years old. He had no money, no education and spoke no English. Through hard work and perseverance, Stan earned a diploma in Food and Hospitality Management from the Provincial Institute of Technology and Art (now called SAIT). In 1970, Stan and Ling bought the local grocery store in the town of Airdrie, AB and settled there for the next 20 years raising their family. After selling their grocery business, Stan and Ling retired to Calgary in 1990. A Funeral Service will be held at FOSTER'S GARDEN CHAPEL, 3220 - 4 Street N.W., Calgary (across from Queen's Park Cemetery) on Friday, December 7, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. Interment will follow at Queen's Park Cemetery.
