<div itemprop="description">It is with great sadness that Ian Leung succumbed to Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS – blood cancer), after battling the disease for 6 months with constant trips to the Sunnybrook Hospital <br> <br>On Sunday, August 21, 2016, at the age of 65, he passed away with alongside of fellow family and friends to name: <br>Sister-in-law Rida Fung, <br>Yvonne and Peter Chung, <br>Catherine and Peter Tsui, <br>Elaine and Eddie Hui and <br>Partner of 16 years Cynthia Ching. <br> <br>Born on October 14, 1950, Ian spent his childhood and teen years in Hong Kong. To further his education, Ian pursued his post-secondary studies at Ryerson University. At Ryerson, Ian graduated in Mechanical Engineering, Bachelor of Technology on October 27, 1979. <br> <br>Ian began his career in 1980 in Building and Facility Services Engineering. During his 35 year career, he held mechanical system design and project management roles in overseeing infrastructure development for both private and public (government) sectors. During the last ten years of his career, prior to retirement, Ian was a dedicated Mechanical Engineering Designer at the Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Borden – supporting and serving his country’s efforts in national defense. <br> <br>With great interest in classical music and choir vocals, Ian was a member of Ontario Cross-Cultural Music Society (OCCMS) and played the role as bass within the choir. One of Ian’s most notable performances was Yellow River (Huang He) in late 2006. Ian was also an active member of Lingnan Alumni Association, Toronto Chapter, where he maintained friendly relationships with his early schoolmates from Hong Kong. Today we not only remember Ian’s passion for choir music, but also lovingly remember his charismatic personality which his wife, Cynthia, adores. <br></div>
