It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of our beloved Japanese teacher Dr. Kenny Yang. Dr. Yang left us on Tuesday. We will all remember him and respect what he had done for our Taiwanese School.
Below is the letter from the Yang family.
We write to let you know that, on Tuesday, February 24, 2015 at 9:10 am, Kenneth ("Kenny") Chi-Kun Yang (楊基焜) passed peacefully unto our Lord Jesus Christ, and that he now rests in peace and comfort with our Lord. We are grateful that God gave him strength to persevere through his last year. We are also equally grateful for the support and the compassion, given so generously to him and our family, by all of you, his friends. Though he was unable to leave the house in this past year, he truly enjoyed each visit from all of you. And, we are eternally grateful that on January 12, 2015, he was able to celebrate his 83rd birthday with so many of his friends -- he was full of smiles and joy on that day and very much enjoyed sharing his favorite strawberry shortcake with his friends. We are proud of the life that he lived. Even through his illness these last couple of years, his smile was infectious as was his good cheer to all who knew and met him. He believed very much in service to his community and for those in need. This was all very evident in his everlasting passion and support for his native country of Taiwan and the Taiwanese community in the States, especially in recent years for the Taiwanese Presbyterian Church and the Washington DC Taiwanese School (Hoahuo Taioaan Haghau). He was gentle, kind and friendly to all that knew him, with never a bad word for anyone; which we believe is in direct correlation to the quantity, quality and character of the friends that surrounded and supported him during these last couple of years.
We will miss him dearly. He was an amazing husband, dad and a-kong to our family. We plan to host a memorial service sometime in the coming months and we hope that you will join us in remembrance of the life that he lived at that time. We are also in the process of creating a memorial fund in his name, that will support the causes he so selflessly worked for during his lifetime. In the meantime, we greatly appreciate your sentiments of sorrow and good will and ask that you please not send flowers. We will update you on the memorial service and memorial fund when we have more details.
