Lu was born in London, England and was extremely proud of his Welsh heritage. He immigrated to Canada in 1952. In his youth, he was an accomplished soccer player and was recruited by a number of teams in both Canada and the USA. He enjoyed a number of careers through his working years, and particularly relished his time teaching health and safety on Great Lakes freighters and for EllisDon Construction.
Lu’s family extends their sincerest appreciation to the staff at Chatham-Kent Health Alliance and Tilbury Gardens for the kind and compassionate care he was given. At Lu’s request, a private family Celebration of Life will take place. Arrangements entrusted to Simple Choice.
