MAH, Cedric In the early hours of April 29, 2011 Cedric Mah passed away at the age of 88 years, at the Edmonton General Continuing Care Centre. He will be greatly missed by his children, Cheryll Watson and Jonathon Mah; his best friends, Paul Tymchuk and Wash Leckeoff; by his sisters Lily Wong and Bernice Leung and his brother Alex Mah as well as his numerous nieces and nephews including Heather, Hilary, Alicia, Arran children of brother Albert and all of the friends he had at the Alberta Aviation Museum and around the world. Cedric Mah was a decorated World War II pilot and one of the few remaining members of the China National Aviation Corporation/Flying Tigers. In 1997 Cedric was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross, the highest American air award. Together with brother Captain Albert Mah, they broke the record number of hours flying dangerous routes over the Himalayas during the WWII. After the war, Cedric continued to pursue his passion for flight as a bush pilot, flying both in the Arctic and on the coast of British Columbia. After retiring, Cedric settled in Edmonton and for the past decade has been a committed volunteer at the Aviation Museum entertaining the many visitors with his animated story telling. A Memorial will be held at the Alberta Aviation Museum at 11410 Kingsway Avenue, Edmonton on Friday, May 6th at 3:00 p.m. At the memorial, friends will be given the opportunity to share stories and their memories of Cedric. In lieu of other tributes, donations may be made to the Alberta Aviation Museum. Thanks to the staff at the Edmonton General for their wonderful care and treatment.
