CHUNG, Raymond Pak-Yee

October 12, 1956 – Hong Kong, China
April 12, 2019 – Calgary, Alberta

Raymond Pak-Yee Chung, 62, peacefully passed away at home surrounded by his family, after a four year battle with cancer.

He was the son of Fu-Keung Chung and Grace Lam, and step son of Yuet Fan Ho. He immigrated to Canada as a teenager, then worked for Food City for fifteen years, before partnering with Tony Mak and Pat Chung to form Concorde Maintenance Inc. in 1989.

He lived a very happy and full life. Raymond loved to spend time with his family and friends. He was an avid golfer, and member of Country Hills Golf Course, where he formed many of those great friendships. He golfed every day and loved to travel internationally to play. Raymond’s other passions included eating food, cars, and having fun at the casino. He was the beloved husband to Helen Chung; loving father to daughters Nadia (Darcy) Lauder, Stephanie (Garrett) Wiebe, and Allison Chung; and proud grandfather to Makenna Lauder, Elliott Lauder, and Kenzie Wiebe. Raymond is also survived by his three brothers, Patrick (Lorretta) Chung of Vancouver, BC, Stephen (Lilian) Chung of Calgary, AB, and Lawrence (Michelle) of Edmonton; and his sister, Magdalene (Danny) Lui of Calgary, AB. He also had many nieces and nephews who he adored.

  2. Raymond was a kind person. He always had a smile on his face. He was a great boss and friend to my father Jose Alvarez. He was always looking for different ways to help my father. We will always be so grateful to have known him. Him and his family will continue to be in our prayers.

    With deep sadness we started to write this; but our sadness would nowhere near the loss suffered by Helen, Nadia, Stephanie, Allison and the Chungs. The loss of a most loving husband and father, a lifelong friend and companion must leave all of you in total shock. How could we even attempt to describe the pain and the emptiness?

    We understand that Raymond would be the first person who would offer help to others in need, but the last person to receive any favour. So we could imagine, all his past worries and concerns about his health must have weighted so heavily on him when he had to relying on others to take care of him. We wouldn’t really know the sufferings he must have endured; and we wouldn’t know how helpless he must have felt when his beautiful soul had been trapped in the old body that could no longer serve him well. Raymond said yes to heaven’s call, with that entire burden lifted, now his spirit once again soars high, continues to do what he had done best – loving all of you.

    We shall remember Raymond in our prayers. Perhaps now seeing all of us being very sad; Raymond is too sending his blessings for us to heal. We should fulfil his wish and fully live our lives in loving honour of his.

    Mary Lau, Peter Leung and family
