Julian Ho, born in Calgary, was the beloved and only son of Dennis and Jennifer. He passed
away peacefully on December 5, 2021, with his parents by his side at the age of 15 after a 22
months’ battle with Leukemia. Despite his short time on earth, he was deeply loved and
brought immense joy to those around him.
Besides his parents, Julian will be forever remembered and missed by his numerous uncles
and aunts, cousins, nephews and nieces and many special friends. We believe that the impact
and legacy he left behind will last a lifetime.
For those who had the pleasure of knowing him knew he that he was kind, compassionate,
humorous, responsible and caring. He had a captivating smile, and he never failed to brighten
our days. He was always willing to help those in need and had a compassionate heart to those
who suffered pain.
He had passions in following God, school, swimming, video games, art, food and travelling. He
enjoyed the simple things and was always contented with life. His favourite time was spending
family bonding time with his parents and hanging out with his friends. His belief in God and the
love of His Saviour made him a courageous, loving, positive and grateful person.
We appreciate the support and prayers we received throughout his fight and journey, from
family, friends and church members. A special thank you to the staff at the Alberta Children’s
Hospital for their care, compassion, and kindness. We were treated with so much love like a
family. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Lastly, we thank God for being His Creator and blessing him to us. We are sad that he had to
leave but we are grateful to God that he is now healed and no longer in pain. Until we meet
again, he is safe in the arms of Jesus. Our BUDDY, you will be deeply missed.
