I was so sad when I had heard the news that Mr. Yee had passed away. My parents were such good friends with his wife and himself. It all started with my father working for Mr. Yee at King Wah restaurant and from there they became good friends. So much so that we even bought our first 2 cars similar to Mr. Yee's - 1973 Dodge Dart Sport and then the 1976 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. When I was 16 years old, Mr. Yee asked me work at King Wah where he trained me to wait on tables. He would take the time on Saturday mornings to train me for a few hours. I did not expect a salary while I was being trained, but he paid me out of his own pocket. This is what I will always remember from Mr. Yee, his kindness, his constant smile and forever cheerfulness.

To the Yee Family,
Sorry for your loss. My condolences to your family.

Our sincere condolences to the Family. We miss Uncle Sam for his pleasant company, his smiles, and friendly conversations whenever we visited Montreal. He leaves behind a great legacy.
We never knew Mr. Yee personally, yet when we learned of his passing we still felt a deep loss.
Mr.Yee's energy and pure zest for life instantly rubbed off anyone who met him, no matter how brief. Listening to his life story, we began to grasp how truly remarkable of a man he really was. What it means to be an immigrant and carve out a beautiful and long life from almost nothing. The embodiment of what it means to never give up, not just for yourself, but for those around you as well. .
Mr. Yee was a family man through and through. It is easy to see that the Yee family continues to live for and embody the generosity and ingenuity that Mr. Yee taught.
The Tang family extends our deepest condolences.
P.S. I wear my own name Samuel with some newfound significance after today, in the hopes I can live for and pass on Mr.Yee's life lessons too.
Dear John and Cindy and Family:
We are so sorry for your loss, but rejoice with you that Mr. Yee is now in the arms of our Lord enjoying eternal rest. May His comfort and peace be with you during this difficult time and in the days ahead.
The Fong Family
