Born near Canton, China on Feb 24, 1936 to the late Yee Chew Chung and Lee Chee Chau, Jimmy passed away peacefully in his sleep on July 21, 2022 at his home in Hayward, CA with his family by his side. He is survived by his loving wife of 61 years, Nancy G. Yee and his daughter, Karen T. Yee. He loved his family and will be deeply missed.
Jimmy came over from China as a teenager and worked for several years as a house aide for a family in San Francisco before pursuing his career as a printer in South San Francisco. He retired after 30 years. He was a dedicated member of the First Chinese Baptist Church where he served many years as the chairperson of the Social Committee, helping to prepare and serve food for the entire church community. He was a faithful usher and always had a smile and friendly word for everyone. His energy was infectious and everywhere you went, someone would know Jimmy!
