It was with great sadness that the PEI Association for Newcomers to Canada learnt of untimely passing of Byoung Bae Choi. He was connected with the ANC in several ways - as a client, an interpreter, and a dedicated translator.

"Byoung Bae approached every task with great professionalism, and went out of his way to make sure that the Korean translation on our website was exemplary. He took pride in being part of our Online Guide for Newcomers translation team," says Beti Andric, the website translation coordinator. "We will miss working with Byoung Bae very much."

Most recently Byoung Bae was a client of PEI ANC's Self-Employment Counselling Service. He wanted to expand and improve the business he had bought, Chameleon Language Centre.

"We were just starting to discuss tools of analysis when Byoung let me know he had to take some personal time. I enjoyed his determination to grow his business, and to not settle for less than his potential. Condolences to his family and friends," says Adam Doucette, Self-Employment Counsellor.

Byoung Bae passed away peacefully at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital at the age of 51 on Friday, June 15, 2012. He will be missed by many friends and family, including his wife Hosoon Lee and children Insung and Sangmuk.
