Samuel Yee

1924 - 2021



As I mourn your untimely death, Dad, I wish to remember and to thank you for the lovingly dedicated, energetic, and hard-working sacrifices you made for family and others, throughout your life. From the time I was a little girl, I loved to go to your bookshelf (which you built) and pretend I could read and understand all the math equations, and physics, and whatever else seemed fascinating. Over time, as Mom and others would fill me in on your life, I know in the end,...

Dear Stephanie,
I am so sorry to see this news of your father’s passing, but I know he is in a better place and is reunited with your mom, grandma, Leila, and Aunt Irene. He will be greatly missed. Those are great photos you shared in better times. I will remember his kind and quiet demeanor. There are memories I remember he and your mom visiting all of us in Shelton a few times. I remember driving your dad to Les Schwab to fix a flat tire on his car one time, I must have been in high school or home from college at that time.

I can let dad know. Thoughts are with you, Tiffany, your brothers and families. Please let us know if you need anything all. Take care.

We always will remember Uncle Sammy's quiet and kind demeanor. We loved visiting Uncle Sammy and Aunty Ethel either in Seattle or even in long road trips we did down to San Diego when we were kids. Those visits always seemed to involve great food over the holidays, summer vacations, milestone birthday celebrations, weddings, or just because. This was when Aunt Irene and Uncle Paul were still around, and they too made the trip down to Shelton to visit us at the Ming Tree Cafe.  - Brian

Uncle Sammy was so generous with his time even when he had so little himself. The hardest working man I’ve ever known. I remember when he was working in Eastern Washington and then doing the very long drive to come back home every weekend to care for his family! Thinking of all the times where he would always be there for me whenever I needed help. He was so smart and could fix anything! I can still picture him on the ladder at my condo changing the combination of the garage door opener after I somehow lost my remote. I will cherish the memories of all the fun times our family had together. I’ll miss your smiles and cheeriness whenever I would come over. You will always be forever in my heart.

With much Love,

Stephanie, thank you for sharing your memories of your father. I shall always remember him as very smart,gentle and quiet. Our first tv was built by your dad. He was always “in school”.

I am sorry to hear about your dad. I have fond memories of living with your mother and him in Salt Lake City. I remember him as soft spoken and a gentle person. My thoughts are with you and your family
