Obituary for L Ah Sein

L Ah Sein, 96, of Rio Vista, Fort Lauderdale passed away peacefully on Aug. 3rd, 2010 at his home. He is survived by his wife, Kim; daughter, Wynn W. Latt; son, Sein Lwin M.D.; grand nephew, Aung Hein in the United States and his sister-in-law, nephews, nieces, and their children in Burma.

Li was born in Syriam (a refinery town), Burma on March 28, 1914. He graduated from the Technical Institute of Rangoon, Burma. He worked as a refinery engineer at the Burma Oil Company (BOC) and later, became a chief engineer/ general manager.

During World War II, he left his family to take part in a “Scorched Earth Policy” of destroying the refinery and tank depots in Syriam, Burma prior to the Japanese invasion of the country to deny the gasoline and oil supply for their advances. He was on the last boat that left Burma for Calcutta, India and was chased by Japanese submarines. Soon afterwards, he returned to the Oil Fields in Chauk, Upper Burma, to cap the oil wells to prevent the extraction of crude oil by Japanese forces. He survived many bombing raids by Japanese planes during this mission.

Afterwards, he trekked out to India along the same route that was used by Gen. Stiwell in his retreat out of Burma ahead of the Japanese invasion where many people lost their lives.

After the war, he returned to Burma and helped rebuild the Oil Refinery in Syriam, Burma. Li retired from BOC at the age of 55 as a Chief Engineer and General Manager (CEO) of the Refinery and migrated to the United States. For his service during the war, he was awarded 1939-1945 Burma Star by the British government.

He immigrated to the United States in 1975 with his wife, Kim. While in America, he met and cultivated a lot of good friends, especially Dr. Mac Davis and Dr. Shumpert who taught him fishing and he thoroughly enjoyed his weekly outings with them. He was sad to see most of his friends passed away before him.

He was a devout Chinese-Buddhist. He was a dedicated family man and a good father. He made sure that his children got a good education, so he sent them to a Catholic Boarding School. He was an avid sportsman in tennis, badminton, golf and soccer. He also enjoyed travelling. He used to take yearly driving trips seeing America with his friends, Chief Medical Officer of the Burma Oil Company Dr. OB Breas. While in Florida, he became a fan of Miami Heat and Miami Dolphins. He had never missed watching a Heat game on TV.

    He had a good life and had done great service for Burma during World War II.
    He was a great man with honesty and integrity. He was kind with full on empathy to everyone. I spend a lot of time with him and he had given me great advice in humanity and relations with family and friends. His life experiences are of great interest to me. We will miss him dearly. Our sincere condolences and sympathy to his family. NL
