It is with great sadness, the Soong family must share that Maurice Soong has passed away
peacefully on Wednesday, February 05, 2014 at the age of 78.
He was surrounded by his loving family. Beloved husband of Brenda Soong. Devoted father
of Anna (John), Johnny, Debbie (Frank), Patsy (Gary), and Krystle. Dear brother of Alice
(Ping Cheung) and Arthur (Flora). He will be sadly missed by his seven grandchildren:
Amanda, Kasi, Matthew, Kennedy, Kiana, Miles, and Madison. Special uncle to many nieces
He is predeceased by his parents William Soong and Lucy Lee, and his sisters Soong
Cheung Tai and Soong Sui Tai. Also predeceased by his in-laws, Law Sik Leung and So So
Dad's journey began in Hermitage Village and continued to San Fernando where he opened
Soong's Restaurant and Soong's Cherry Blossom on Coffee Street. Believing that San
Fernando Hill was truly one of the most outstanding landmarks in all of Trinidad, he chose to
build Soong's Great Wall on Circular Road in 1981. This has been one of his greatest accom-
plishments. He was most proud of his beautiful wife, children, and grandchildren and he was
equally proud to call Trinidad his home.
A heartfelt thank you to Dr. Neal Bhagwandass who took special care of Dad over the years
and supported the family through this difficult time. The family would also like to thank all the
doctors and nurses, including Dr. Jaggernauth and Dr. Peng.
