Uncle William was my dad’s best friend. Their friendship started even before they became teenagers living in the old Happy Valley area. My dad, Tak-Chiu, still recollects many fond childhood memories with uncle, roaming about the old neighbourhood making harmless mischief. The fun in the softball team in which Uncle William played the shortstop on the field while my dad was the pitcher. Uncle will be dearly missed, especially by my dad. We offer our deepest condolences to Aunt Dora and the family. Love, Tak-Chiu Chan, David and Tracy Chan, Rosana and Po Chan
You'll always be our Beloved Baby Brother, William. We survived a war together, when we were so young and I remember we were so scared when the Japanese soldiers came to our flat and we scratched out our last names on all our text books so that they wouldn't see that we had British last names and hid our Father. We all made it through the Japanese Occupation and the 2nd World War. We all grew up to have happy lives and great families with wonderful children and grandchildren. And we all lived into our 90's. What a blessing for all of us. But I guess it was time for you to take a well deserved rest after such a full and active life. We pray for you, Dora, Christine, Karen, Jason and your grandchildren who have our deepest condolences. Love always Sis Janet
Dearest William, Beloved little Brother, Uncle, and Grand Uncle, We are saddened that you have left us so soon, but we will always cherish all our special memories of the wonderful and also trying childhood we had surviving the war. And all the great times we had after with family gatherings with all our families together. And still keeping in constant touch after your move to San Francisco. You will be missed by all our family. Have a good rest little brother. And our sincere condolences Dora, Christine, Karen, Jason and your families. Love Winnie (Sister), Pat, Lincoln, Wayne (Niece & Nephews), Evelyn and Gregory (Grandniece & Grandnephew)
Today 3Jul2021 you would have been 92 Uncle William, I will be missing the family photos that you would always send after, updating us with how you spent your special event with all the family. And the 4th of July will never quite be the same for family and friends from this year on wards. I still have fond memories of when we were in SF a decade ago in 2011 and you were our Tour Guide driving us around everywhere showing us the sights, even if I laid very low in the back seat, grasping my seat belt and car door handle, bracing as you got on to highways, merging into traffic casually in your very own style at 82. We will always be grateful and treasure that special time you spent with Ronnie and I, and also be grateful that we all returned in one piece and alive after each outing, lol. We were also so happy to see you once again 2016 and spend time with you at home with Auntie Dora's wonderful and scrumptious home cooked meals. And Jason and Dylan taking over as tour guides to show
