"YAO" 2005 Obituary


YAO o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2005-11-15 published
YAO, Lin
Lin died November 10, 2005. Born in 1914, his life was a marriage between 20th century China and Canada. As a student he was active in the May 4th Chinese nationalist movement. In 1936 he obtained a Boxer rebellion scholarship, a prestigious award paid for from reparations payments generously given back to China by the United States. After a PhD from Lehigh University, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, he went to work for Inco in Sudbury, where he met Ming, a Canadian doctor. Together they returned to Tianjin under United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Agency, working for two years on China's reconstruction. As Lin Biao's army triumphed in Manchuria, they decided to return to Canada, and on the boat they had a second son. Lin worked as a research scientist for Energy Mines and Resources Canada in Ottawa. In his retirement, he took up the hobby of solving Laplace transforms and returned to Nankai University to teach themodynamics. Lin leaves sons and daughters in law Ted, Colleen PARRISH, Tom and Lillian and grandchildren, Colin, Emily and Percy. A short memorial service will be held at Ted and Colleen's house, at 3: 30, Sunday December 4, 2005. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer's Society of Toronto would be appreciated.
