William Hon Chaw

February 21, 1929 - December 30, 2018

On December 30, 2018, we lost our beloved father William "Bill" Hon Chaw after a long battle with lung cancer.

Bill was a U.S. Army veteran and a Structural Engineer by profession. He is survived by his wife Elinor, children Terisa (husband James Hendriksen), Debra, Cynthia, Michael (wife Jeannie Chaw) and Karen, his beautiful grandchildren Kristin Chaw Hendriksen (husband Payson Cushman), Molly Chaw Hendriksen (fiancé Logan Frye) and Nathan Chaw, step-grandchildren Jessica and Jonathan Park (step-children of Michael), sisters Helen Der and Sally Yee, sister-in-law Rubye Chaw, and his many nephews and nieces. He also has four furry grand-dogs who will miss him very much: Barklee, Dozer, Gracie and Buddy.

Bill will always be remembered as a husband and father who worked hard to provide for his family and gave much more than he received. He was the steady light that guided and supported us through life. We know his star in Heaven will shine bright and guide us until we meet again. Bill will be missed very much and our love for him will continue until the end of time.

According to Bill's wishes there will be no services.
