Lay Gar Khoo

May 29, 1973 ~ February 14, 2022 (age 48)


In the early morning of Feb 14, 2022, Lay Gar Khoo (Leia) passed away peacefully at the age of 48.

Leia, a beloved wife is survived by her husband, Steve and son, Kaldrick. She also left behind her mother, Kim Teow and four older siblings, Lay Boon, Chiaw Hor, Chiaw Kiat, and Lay Bian as well as her extended family, William, Nam Giin, Josh and abundance of friends.
She grew up in Muar, Johor in Malaysia and received her degree from Washington State University. She was loved by all her school and college friends and co-workers. Her love for her child has brought her together with a lot of families and the communities in South Bay Area, all of whom became her close friends. Anyone who knew Leia was touched by her kindness, caring and positive attitude. She was a huge source of encouragement to everyone around her.
We take comfort in knowing that Leia is now at peace. There will be a celebration of life in her honor held at San Jose Funeral Chapel 1050 S Bascom Ave San Jose, CA 95128 from 9am to 12pm.
The family respectfully request only families and friends that know Leia personally to attend the funeral service on site. This is due to safety concerns. Thank you for the understanding.
There will be an online video of the service available later for families and friends that couldn't make the service. We will post it here and you can also request it directly from the family.
