<div itemprop="description">Born in Taipei, Taiwan to Chi-Feng and Su-Mei Shao, Liang-Ping Joseph Shao was the third of four children. He went to high school in Dam Shui and attended Chung Hsing University where he earned his Bachelor in Law. He went on to pursue a Master's degree overseas in California, where he met his wife, Su-Chin Betsy Tseng. The couple married in 1983 and have two children. <br> <br>Joseph led a colourful career that spanned a wide variety of jobs. In Taiwan, he started off as a flight attendant for China Airlines, worked for Dunkin' Donuts for a while, became a salesman at Johnson & Johnson and finally settled as the marketing manager for Aetna. After moving to Canada in 1991, his career took another turn, this time to journalism. It was a perfect fit for him, given his love for politics and literature, as well as his outgoing personality. He was a reporter for Ming Pao Daily News, Fairchild TV as well as an editor for Today Daily News. Aside from work, Joseph always tried to give back to the community and participated in several groups such as the Toronto Police 42 Division community volunteers, Taiwanese Merchant Association of Toronto and the Taiwanese Canadian Association of Toronto. <br> <br>On September 19, 2016, Liang-Ping Joseph Shao ended his long battle against cancer at age 61. He will be missed by his wife Betsy; his daughter Jen-Yin and son-in-law Vincent; and his son Jen-Wei. He also leaves an older sister Nancy, an older brother Hugh and his wife Rowena, and a younger sister Hope and her husband John. He is also survived by his mother, Su-Mei.</div>
