Jim

Posted in Uncategorized on July 12, 2017 by lelandwong


So sorry to hear old friend, Jim Wong-Chu of Vancouver has passed away.

I’ve known him since the early seventies…he was involved in Vancouver’s Chinatown. He accomplished a lot of things in his lifetime. As a photographer, writer, community organizer, poet, taiko drummer, gungfu man, as well as a popular letter carrier with the Canadian postal service.
Jim suffered a massive stroke which left him unable to speak or move for the last few months. Knowing Jim he would not want to live his life that way.
Thanks to his wife Marlene for her care and love.
I will really miss him.  May Jim Rest In Peace.
