WONG, Ricky

June 17, 1937 – May 6, 2013

It is with great sadness that Ricky Wong’s family announces his peaceful passing on Monday May 6, 2013 at Agapé Hospice surrounded by family and friends. He embodied a steadfast love, generosity and strength that will be greatly missed by all. Mourning his passing are his loving wife of forty-two years, Lila; daughters Anita (Thomas and grandsons Ryder and Burton), Margo and Betty; son Gary (Robyn); older sister, Shui Ngor; nephew Wei Bao (Ching and great-nephew Bao); younger sister Judy; nephews, Sam (Suzanne and great-nephew James) and Tony; aunt Fung King; and cousins Shou Ngor, Cheung, Frankie, Susan and David. He will also be remembered by many other loving relatives, along with an extended community of friends from Calgary Chinese Alliance Church, The Wong’s Affinity Association and The Chinese Freemasons. Ricky was born in Guangdong, China and immigrated to Canada in 1969. From extremely humble beginnings, Ricky worked hard every day to provide for his family. By 1988, he ran a successful family restaurant, The Billy Burger, and subsequently retired at the age of 61. Although he battled cancer for more than a decade, Ricky enjoyed God’s love and provision throughout his life. He travelled to many places within Canada and abroad – USA, Mexico, Jamaica and China – as well as enjoying several cruises with his family. Thank you to Dr. Jacob Easaw and the staff at Tom Baker Cancer Centre for the compassionate care that he received. A memorial service will be held at CHAPEL OF THE BELLS (2720 Centre Street North), Sunday May 12, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. In living memory of Ricky Wong, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park.
