Mr. Paul Chen Niou of Edmonton, Alberta passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving wife and sons on January 7, 2021.
Paul was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and friend. He loved his family and sacrificed much of his life to provide for them. He was a loyal friend to those around him. Always putting his family and friends ahead of himself. He sought to change the world one person at a time.
Born in a small village in Shandong, China, Paul has lived a splendid life in several parts of the world. Because of war, he left home during his teenage years and lived in Taiwan, United States and finally his home here in Canada.
Never lacking courage, Paul’s life was full of adventure and exploration. When he first arrived in Edmonton, he started working in the kitchen of a Chinese restaurant. Then he operated a small downtown restaurant at the Travelodge Hotel, and eventually started the North China Restaurant on Whyte Avenue. After his restaurant career, he then operated an egg farm just outside of New Norway, Alberta.
He is loved and will be remembered by his family and friends. His presence will be greatly missed.
