Eng Lim Yeo passed away peacefully October 19, 2012 with close family beside, after a courageous six-year battle with cancer. Eng Lim or "Yeo" as his friends would call him, was born on September 13, 1935 in Cirebon, Indonesia. He grew up very curious as to what our amazing world had to offer. Always adventurous and fearless, he travelled throughout Europe and moved to Germany in his twenties despite his mother's disapproval. In 1967, he settled in Vancouver, B.C. and married Kristiani Marjuki of Sukorejo, Indonesia in 1977. Yeo worked as a server and thrived at the legendary Hy's Encore Restaurant for 27 years until retiring from the hospitality business and starting a new career (at 57!) as a custodian for the Richmond School Board. His hobbies included fixing cars, photography, travelling, camping and the outdoors. His humble attitude and passion to live life to the fullest will always inspire his family and friends. He will always be known for his honesty, hard work and love for his family. "Yeo" is survived by his wife Kristiani Yeo, sister Elina Waskito, son Allan Hok Kie Yeo, daughter Alvina Lian Kie Yeo and granddaughter Alessandra Mikayla Yeo. A Catholic Memorial will be held this Saturday, October 27, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. at St. Paul's Catholic Church, 8251 St. Albans Road, Richmond B.C. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the BC Cancer Foundation 686 West Broadway #150, Vancouver, B.C. V5Z 1G1
