WU, Dr. William T. Dr. William Wu passed away peacefully at the age of 72 on March 17, 2009 after a courageous battle with cancer. Dr. Wu is survived by his loving wife Dr. Grace Chen, his brother Lawrence, four children Alex, Andre, Chris and Steven and four grandchildren Michaela, Torin, Briseis and Emmett. Dr. Wu lovingly served the community and practiced pediatrics at the University of Alberta, Royal Alexandra and Sturgeon General Hospitals over the last 30 years. He completed his Pediatrics Residency at the UofA Hospital in 1970, went on for further training at the Children's Hospital Medical Center in Boston, completed a fellowship in Neonatology in 1972 and fulfilled his American Board of Pediatrics in 1977. He attained further training in herbs and acupuncture at the Shanghai Chinese Medical School. He also researched, lectured and wrote about the best of western and eastern medical philosophies. He will always be remembered by his many relatives, colleagues, friends and patients for his kindness, genuine compassion, strong work ethic and openness to sharing his extensive knowledge and wisdom. His joys in life were his family, his studies and his practice. When he relaxed he enjoyed ballroom dancing with his loving wife and listening to his classical music. His Life Philosophy: "I cannot avoid growing old, but I'd never want to grow up as I would like to envision my world through the eyes of a child." A private family gathering will take place at a later date as per his wishes. Condolences : 205 Meadowlark Prof. Building, 8702 Meadowlark Road, Edmonton, T5R 5W5. Howard & McBride Chapel of Chimes, (780) 422-1141
