Nou Cha Yang was born in August 20, 1936 to Ka Pao Yang and Mai Her in Laos. He passed away in his home surrounded by his children, wife, and grandchildren on September 13, 2019. He was 83 years old. He is survived by his wife Sheng Her, nine children, 22 grandchildren, and 13 great-grandchildren.
Nou Cha was a devoted husband, a loving father, and an amazing grandfather. He was a mentor, a counselor, a protector, a leader, a supporter, a helper, and a wonderful companion to everyone around him. He always included everyone in his circle of friends.
He brought his family to the United States as refugees in September 1989. Even with limited English, he worked hard to support his family. Had he been given the opportunity to be educated like everyone else, he could be anyone that he wanted to be. Going from job to job, he finally settled at KU Medical Center in the Dietary department in 1998. He retired from KU Medical Center in 2007 at the age of 71. He was a very intelligent and wise man. He encouraged his children and grandchildren to pursue their education to the highest level possible and to reach for the skies.
He was a man of God. He never missed church unless he was sick or out of town. His favorite thing was his Bible. He taught his children about God at an early age. Growing up in the high mountains of Laos, his children surrounded him every single night to hear his Bible Stories. He converted many people to Christianity and led many souls to God. He was a co-founder of Kansas City Hmong Alliance Church in Kansas City, Kansas and was a member of this very church until the day he went to be with God, his Creator. Even in his dying bed, he encouraged his pastor to keep watch of the church.
In May 30, 2019, Nou Cha was admitted to KU Medical Center and diagnosed with coronary artery disease that needed bypass. Following the bypass, he suffered a stroke to his right side, which caused his inability to move around and speak. Additionally, he had fluid in his lungs that needed to be drained. After two months at KU Medical Center, he was discharged to a skilled nursing home. After about a week at the skilled nursing home, he was rushed back to KU Medical Center with congestive heart failure and kidney failure, which later caused his life.
His life celebration will be held at Faith Deliverance Family Worship Center, 3043 State Ave, Kansas City, KS 66102. Service will begin in the morning of Saturday, October 12th from 9 AM to 12 PM and evening service will be from 5 PM to 8 PM. Evening service for Sunday, Oct 13th will be from 5 PM to 8 PM.
