Wenhua - Xie

November 11, 1933 ~ May 3, 2022 (age 88)


Wenhua Xie was born in Beijing on November 11, 1933. He passed away on May 3, 2022 at Kaiser Hospital in San Jose after a courageous battle against cancer. He is survived by his loving wife of 62 years, Ying Yue; daughter and son-in-law, Hong and Hua; son and daughter-in-law, Tong and Rebecca; and four grandchildren, Stephen, Stella, Thomas, and Michael. He is also survived by a large contingent of loving extended family and friends. Wenhua grew up in Beijing. After graduating from college, he chose a career in teaching and taught physics at a university. He moved to California in 1999 and thoroughly enjoyed his retirement life, living closely with his children and grandchildren. An artist at heart, he was particularly prolific after retirement and produced over 200 oil and acrylic paintings, as well as many woodworks. Wenhua was also an avid lover and collector of classic music. Wenhua enjoyed traveling, especially his trips to Hawaii, Texas, Southern California, and Canada. Wenhua had a great sense of humor. He was such a blessing to everyone around him. We will truly miss his warm smile, humor, and fatherly love.
