Billy "Uncle Bill" Yoke Soon Chin

On November 27, 2021, Billy "Uncle Bill" Yoke Soon Chin sadly passed. In lieu of flowers, his loved ones graciously asked that donations be made to both South Cove Manor at Quincy Point Rehabilitation Center and to us at Kwong Kow Chinese School.

We at KKCS are incredibly grateful for this heartfelt gesture, and for Uncle Bill’s incredible impact on the Boston Chinatown community over the past 50 years. Our hearts and minds go out to Uncle Bill’s family.

Read more about Uncle Bill’s lasting influence on Boston Chinatown and how he has helped shape the history of the area:



Furthermore, we would like to express a kind and sincere thank you to all those who have donated in memory of Uncle Bill.

Thank you for your donations in memory of Uncle Bill
