PAUL WAH WU passed away peacefully on April 28th, 2020 at the age of 70, after bravely facing ALS. Born in Shanghai, China, and raised in Hong Kong, Paul came to Canada in 1967 and studied at the University of Toronto Schools (UTS, Class of ‘69). He continued his academic pursuits by earning a Bachelor of Arts, Architectural Studies (University of Toronto, Class of ‘73), and a Master of Landscape Architecture and Urban Design (Harvard University, Class of ‘75). Through the decades, his designs have had a global impact; planning and beautifying cities in Canada, USA, Hong Kong, China, and the Middle East.
Loving husband of 47 years to Sophia, beloved father to Pauline and her husband, Andrew, as well as proud grandfather to Alexander. Paul’s warmth, humour, intellect, joy for cooking (and eating!) will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
A special thank-you to the wonderful doctors, nurses, and healthcare staff who supported the family during their journey with ALS. If desired, memorial donations can be made to the ALS Society of Canada (www.als.ca). A Celebration of Life will be arranged for a later date at the Toronto Chinese Methodist Church.
