DR. ALEX YEN
Quoc Chuong (Alex) will forever be remembered and missed as a great teacher and a man of many honourable talents.
Born in the Canton region of China, he celebrated his life in many ways and touched the hearts of others with his mastery in Traditional Chinese Medicine, martial arts and beautiful, artistic talents in oil painting.
Following his brave service in the Vietnam war as a Green Beret, he studied medicine and acupuncture in China for seven years. In 1979 he immigrated to Canada to join his family and became an accomplished Dental Technician. The majority of his life was spent practicing TCM as an Acupuncturist and he devoted most of his time to his students of the Yen-Style Martial Arts and Qi Gong. He loved to fish and was recognized as a revered artist.
Dr. Alex Yen is survived by his beloved children Christian and Alexander Yen, Saraya (Ryan) Cavill, and their mother Carol, his sister Ann (Pong Ku) Pak, his father Chan Fa and many extended family members and friends.
A Celebration of Life will be held in Alex’s honour on Sunday, June 17, 2012 from 2 to 5pm at the Chaster House in Bonniebrook (1549 Oceanbeach Esplanade, Gibsons, BC).
