My beloved brother, William, was a wonderful person with a Big Heart of Gold. He was always a happy child. He was a beautiful and an amazing person even as a young child. He never fought with his brother or was he jealous of anyone. He was kind and gentle, and delighted to share with others and made everyone happy. He never lied, if he did something wrong he would stand up and admit it.
Our family immigrated to Canada in 1968 when William was only about 2 1/2 years old. William had an older brother, Kenneth Kam, who passed away from Cancer when he was 29 years old in 1987. The youngest sibling, Samuel Kam, was only a baby when he came to Vancouver. He loved his brother very much. William studied in “Holy Cross” Catholic school in Vancouver with Sam in the 70’s and went back to Hong Kong to finish off his elementary and secondary years. I saw William when he returned to Canada to study university in the 90’s.
William left Vancouver for Hong Kong again after he graduated from Simon Fraser in 1996. At one time his ambition was to study medicine. He liked the idea of helping and saving people. He was always a caring person.
When William was living in Vancouver he was a wonderful Uncle to Cori, who thought highly of “Uncle Willy”. He also loved spending his time with his “Chow-Chow” named “Koko”. William was very sad when the dog suddenly got sick and died. I remembered he also loved driving his ‘Special Edition’ Camaro because he was always fascinated with fast machines and new gadgets. I took over the Camaro after he left for Hong Kong. William was never afraid of trying to do anything at least once; like rock-climbing… he also did a lot of biking, hiking, swimming, tennis and badminton.
I cannot bear the thought that William is gone because I feel that I did not spend enough time with him in his lifetime.I never had a chance to thank him for all the things he did for me in the past. I always looked up to him and respected him. He was a great protector. He provided us with great comfort and love. And I will be forever thankful. William, we miss you so very much. You are truly an Angel.
‘William was here to add to the sum of human goodness. To prove the thing exists. And however futile each individual act of courage or generosity, self-sacrifice or grace… William is here to prove these things exists”.
Our Greatest Love of All! May, Tony & Cori
