With great sadness we announce the passing of our beloved father Tom Doo Nee Pon, of Calgary, while visiting family in California, on Monday, April 5, 2004 at the age of 74 years.
Most recently, Tom had spent time in his home village in Taishan, China where he was dedicated to preserving the heritage and buildings of the local community. “Uncle Wing”/”Cheng Gong” will be remembered for his quiet spirit, generosity and wonderful homemade dinners.
