Obituary for Peter Chong Teck Yin

May 15, 1951 – May 22, 2022

Life has a way of giving us blessings and gifts while also gently reminding us to cherish precious moments shared with those we love.

On Sunday, May 22nd, 2022, Peter peacefully passed away at 5:30 am in Surrey, BC with his loving partner Shirley by his side. After a long battle with diabetes, he is no longer suffering and is now reunited with his mother, Teresa, father, Vincent and sisters Monica & Veronica.

Peter was loved as a husband, father, grandfather, uncle, brother, son, and friend. Born and raised in Seria, Brunei, Peter immigrated to Canada in the 1970’s and lived in Edmonton and Surrey. He was a man who was strong and stoic on the outside but had a gentle heart and a caring soul. Peter always made people laugh with his cheeky jokes and sharp tongue. He had strong ideas and opinions and was never afraid to share them.

Although he often appeared intimidating, those closest to him knew a softer side. Peter cared. He cared about our well-being and how we navigated life. He showed us how to persevere and taught us resilience. Peter was a fighter and his strength lives on in all those who knew and loved him.

Peter is survived by the love of his life, Shirley with daughters Stephanie and Alysha, his daughters, Jennifer and Sabrina (Christian), son Richard, grandchildren Nathan, Sarah and Noah, brothers Paul (Josephine), Richard (Veronica), Edward (Eva), sisters Lucy Chong (Matthew), Helen Third (Jerry), Justina Newbigging (Robert) and Caroline Liew (Yit), numerous nephews and nieces, grand nephews and grand nieces. He will also be missed by fur-babies, Mittens, Canda and Grizzly.

Peter was an avid golfer and will no doubt be working on his handicap up in heaven.

Forever in our hearts, rest in peace and love.
