Chue Yang
Loving husband, father, grandfather, friend and patriot
Chia Chue Yang, age 75, went to be with the Lord on Monday, January 1, 2018.
Mr. Yang is survived by his wife of 54 years, Mai; six children – Xue (Robert), William Cheng Kao (Mang), Song, Thy (Seth), Mayly (Steven) and New Shoua Abraham; three grandchildren – Abigail, Belle and Kyle; his four sisters – Pang Chang, Blia Yang, Ger Lee (Chou) and Lee Thao (Chu Chor); and brother Nhia Xao (Chue). He is preceded in death by his parents Xia Shoua and Yeng; brother Chu Fong and sister Chow Chang; daughter Mee and son at infancy.

Chia Chue was born in Laos on August 26, 1942. He proudly served during the Vietnam War under the CIA’s Special Guerilla Unit from 1966-1975. Captain Yang was a Group Leader of Battalion GM21, Company 206. He assisted with search and rescue missions, delivered supplies and was an airborne radio operator. He was wounded and awarded the Purple Heart. Captain Yang has also been honored with a National Medal, Congressional Citation, Air Commando Citation, American Legion Gold Heroism and Defenders of Freedom. After the fall of Saigon, Mr. Yang and his family fled Laos. In 1976, by the grace of God and compassion of the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service and Pastor Luther Anderson, the Yang family started their new life as Americans in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Mr. Yang and his family settled in Kansas City, Kansas in 1980 where he paved the way for many of his Hmong family members left in Laos and Thailand to escape to the United States to pursue the American dream. Chia Chue was an elder of the Yang clan. He was a member of the First Hmong Christian Missionary and Alliance church. He enjoyed working with his hands and retired from SOR Inc., in 2008. Chue was an avid outdoorsman, skilled hunter and fisherman. Above all, Chia Chue was a family man that encouraged everyone up until his last words to love each other (“sis hlub, os”). 

Services will be held at Faith Deliverance Family Worship Center in Kansas City, KS on Saturday, January 13 at 10 a.m. and 5 p.m., Sunday, January 14 at 5 p.m. and Monday, January 15 at 9 a.m. Burial will follow at 11:30 a.m. at Gate of Heaven Catholic Cemetery in Kansas City, KS.
The Yang Family would like to extend their sincerest gratitude and appreciation to all the family and friends, near and far that prayed for Chia Chue and shared in his last days. They are also eternally grateful for the love and support the First Hmong Christian and Missionary Alliance congregation has provided as we honor our father and husband one last time.
