October 11, 1932 – December 31, 2020
Passing into God's bosom peacefully at his home at the age of 88, Man Yu-Mai was the beloved father to Rev. Alex Lai, Senior Pastor of Triumph Chinese Evangelical Missionary Church in Toronto since 2000. He was the beloved husband to Schumann (nee Lai) for 62 years, and also loving dad to Elena, father-in-law to Stephen Ho, her husband, and maternal grandfather to Kimberly and Sabrina.
A member of Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui (HKSKH, Anglican Church of Hong Kong), Man Yu-Mai worked first as a licensed teacher and then thirty years as a principal in several government-subsidized primary schools operated by the Anglican Church. He was actively serving God also in all three levels of church governance – vestry, diocesan synod and general synod. With a former background in journalism, he was, especially, chief editor from 1987 to 2007 of Echo, the weekly newspaper of HKSKH.
Relatives and friends of the family were requested to take part virtually at 9 am on Friday, January 15th, 2021.
