Wing Lee

Obituary of Wing Lee

Mr. Wing-Kui Lee was born in 1/1/1928 in Canton Province, China. He was the son of Chi-Chiu Lee and Shau-Ho Chan. He was the oldest of 12 children. He was married to Mei-Kam Wong, his wife for 65 year. Together they have four children, David (Suzanne), Betty (Peter) Wong, Tina, Dorothy (Tat Kwong) Cheung and four grandchildren and one great grandchild.

In order to provide for his family, he left medical school in China and entered the work force in Hong Kong prior to Communist aggression. He later regarded this chapter of life as God's grace for him to being able to find Christ in a religious freedom society. When the children arrived, he shouldered the burden of providing for both of his families in China as well as his own family in Hong Kong. That was when he left an office job to work in a factory for higher pay. Because the factory required workers to work on Sundays, he was not able to attend church. Fortunately, he had his wife's support and understanding. She would take the children to church every Sunday. He started praying that the Lord would change his situation so that he could attend church again. He would claim Philippians 4:6-7 that "do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." After eight years, he started his own factory and he would close the factory on Sundays so that he and all the employees could attend church.

He had always lived his life for others. After his family in China was finally getting established, he continued to labor to provide for his immediate family as it grew to four children. He put all of them through schools in the United States so that they have the opportunity to pursuit their dreams. He immigrated to the United States in 1988 so that his two younger daughters could obtain immigration status. He continued to make sacrifices so that his children could have a better life. Even in retirement, he was still taking care of his children and helped raise his grandchildren. He faced multiple serious health issues in life, but he never complained nor focused on himself. Even though he had been "through the shadow of death," he put his faith and trust in God. In turn God sustained and provided for his needs. And that has been the theme of his life, that "Jesus leads him all the way."
