In Celebration of

Samuel Yao-Wen Zheng 鄭耀文先生

January 23, 1960 -  April 22, 2023

Samuel Yao Wen Zheng was born on January 23, 1960, in Guangzhou China.

He was hard-working and devoted to his family. The youngest of 6 brothers, he is remembered as “Uncle Six” by all his nieces and nephews. Sam, as he was known to friends, came to Canada to continue his studies. He obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree at Guelph University and eventually worked in IT.

At All Saints’ Anglican Church, he met his future wife, Yvonne. He enjoyed listening to classical music and passed this on to his two daughters, encouraging them to learn piano. He also liked swimming and playing tennis. In the last 15 years of his life, as his mobility became limited, he learned new ways to communicate and leaned more on his loving wife, Yvonne. He is survived by his wife (Yvonne), two daughters (Michelle and Catherine), two sons-in-law (Charles and Felix), two granddaughters (Hazel and Lillian), and five elder brothers.

In memory of Sam, donations may be made to St. Elizabeth's Anglican Church at
