Genman Ming Mah

1937 – 2019

With love and gratitude, we announce the passing of Genman Ming Mah. He ended his courageous battle with cancer gently, surrounded by loved ones at the Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster, BC. Ming emigrated from Canton, China in 1959, and is fondly remembered in Lethbridge as an upstanding business owner and a talented musician who proudly supported local events, the arts, and the Chinese community. His love of hockey, baseball, volleyball, soccer, slow pitch, basketball, and ping-pong endeared him to many. He was the first ever season-ticket holder with the Lethbridge Broncos and also held season tickets with the Lethbridge Expos, Dodgers, and Hurricanes. Sports enthusiasts will recall his enduring presence at live games with his radio and portable television in hand, often consulted by game announcers for out of town scores he was monitoring. Ming played in the local volleyball league and was actively involved in his children’s athletic pursuits. He was always positive, supportive, and kind. Ming is greatly missed by sons Kevin Mah and Derek Mah; daughters Melanie (Kelly) Mutter and Alyssa (Ian) Rutherford; grandchildren Marta (George) Zaspal, Anthony Mah, Monica Mutter, Sarah Mutter, Kennedy Mutter, Jordan Rutherford, and Noah Rutherford; great-grandchildren Elika Zaspal and Alina Zaspal; brothers Beck Gee and Gene Mah; and his many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his wife, Lynn Leong Mah, his mother and father, as well as sisters, Woon Chie Mah and Fon Har Gee. Ming’s love of technology enabled him to stay connected to friends and family in his later years and to receive many calls and messages during his final days. His unconditional love, humour, and grace touched so many lives. Thank you to everyone for your outpouring of love. Ming radiated happiness each time he thought of you and he smiled as he shared memories of bygone days. His last wish was for friends and family to “not worry.” A church service with close family and friends was held in Willingdon Evangelical Church in Burnaby, BC on Tuesday May 28, 2019. A Memorial Service will be held at 2:30 pm on Saturday, June 1, 2019 at MARTIN BROTHERS RIVERVIEW CHAPEL, 610- 4 STREET SOUTH, Lethbridge, Alberta. Interment will follow at Mountain View Cemetery, Lethbridge, Alberta. Following the service, from 5:00 to 7:00 pm, a reception will be held at New Dynasty Restaurant, 103 7 Street South, Lethbridge. For those unable to attend, live-streaming of the service will be available at https://www.mbfunerals.com/notices/Genman-MingMah. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society in Ming’s memory.
