Mr. Ng, Yee Sheung

Yee went home to his heavenly family at age 57. He leaves his beloved wife Mamie, son John (Taneisha), daughter Anna, granddaughter Simone, four brothers, two sisters, and a large extended family.
Yee attended La Salle during 1964-1970 and was known for his Tai Chi expertise and taking top place in numerous bicycle races. He then went to the United State to study and received his BS degree in Engineering Physics from University of Illinois, MS degree in Electrical Engineering and PhD degree in Physics from Pennsylvania State University. Upon graduation, he accepted employment with Kodak. He has since held positions as Research Scientist, Chief Engineer, and Intellectual Property Manager. Yee was a Kodak Distinguished Inventor with 108 issued patents and several applications pending. His inventions are in areas of imaging and printing technologies.
He was a member of American Physical Society, New York Academy of Sciences, American Association for the Advancement of Sciences, SPIE, IS&T and senior member of IEEE. Yee was active in International Standards and held positions in that organization as Project Editor, Convener, and Liaison Officer. For his professional achievements, he has received INCITS awards, IS&T Fellowship, and the Chester Carlson Award.
Yee had many interests in addition to an exceptional career. He was an avid cyclist and was second alternate on the Relay Cycling team that represented Hong Kong in the 1968 Olympics. He was a Cub Scouts den leader, Boy Scouts merit badge counselor, and was very involved in youth activities when his children were young. Yee stood out with his infinite high energy, sense of humor, and the ability to overcome challenges. He touched many lives and will be deeply missed by all who loved him.
May Yee’s life story from a humble secondary school student to a world class scientist be an inspiration to everyone affiliated with La Salle College.
