CHENG, Eden Ngai Tak - Eden Ngai Tak Cheng, 70, of Mississauga, Ontario, passed away peacefully at the Credit Valley Hospital surrounded by his family on July 8, 2019.
Born March 20, 1949, in Hong Kong, he was the son of the late Horward Cheng and Yuk Hung Ho. He married his wife, Portia Wun Mun Choy, on January 16, 1975.
In April 1988, he immigrated to Canada with his family and they have lived in Mississauga since.
Eden is survived by his wife of 44 years, Portia, along with his sons Steven and Adrian and his wife Nancy, granddaughter Emilia, sister Helen, brother Peter, and nieces and nephews.
Eden was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and friend to everyone.
Eden had a passion for food and cooking. He loved trying new foods and recipes, and spent a lot of time in the kitchen. He was also known for his generosity and caring nature. If you were invited to the dinner table, you know you did not leave until you have eaten enough to hibernate for the whole winter. He loved to play poker in his spare time – and he was quite good at it too. But most of all, he loved his family.
A special thank you to the staff at the Credit Valley Hospital Palliative Care Unit for their loving care and support during his final days.
Visitation at Glen Oaks funeral home, Oakville on July 14th from 2:30 p.m. until time of funeral service there at 4:00 p.m. Reception to follow at Mandarin Restaurant, Mississauga from 5:30 - 7:30 pm.
In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to Trillium Health Partners Foundation, CVH Palliative Care in his memory.
