Chia-Chiao Liang Obituary
July 26, 1927 - May 18, 2016 Los Angeles - Captain Chia-Chiao Liang, 88, passed away on Wednesday, May 18, 2016, in his Pasadena home. He leaves behind his wife of 61 years, Yen-Chin; three children: Bruce, Jake, and Stephanie; and eight grandchildren: Samantha, Brannen, Sydney, Caitlin, Kelsey, Spencer, Karina, and Kayley. Chia-Chiao was born in the Chao Yang District of China to father Jie-Fu and mother Qing-Lan Ye on July 26, 1927. He left home at the young tender age of 17 to find work as a marine merchant, and sailed the world as a respected captain for 30 years, all in an effort to provide for his immediate and extended families. On May 22, 1955, Chia-Chiao married his beloved Yen-Chin, and settled in Taipei, Taiwan to raise their three children. He would go on to travel all over the world as a sea captain and live in the Bronx, NY; Flushing, NY; Freehold, NJ; and eventually, Pasadena, CA. A devout Buddhist and deep thinker, his hobbies included Chinese calligraphy, reading ancient literary and historical novels, and watching martial arts films and period pieces. Known lovingly as Gong Gong or Ye Ye to his grandchildren, he spent his final years conscientiously tending to his vegetable garden, compiling booklets of his favorite Chinese proverbs, and studying the Buddhist sutra. He loved sharing meals with his children, grandchildren, extended family, and friends. Service to be held Friday, June 3, 2016, at 10:00am at Zenshuji Temple in honor of Chia-Chiao's incredible life. www.fukuimortuary.com 213-626-0441
