Jack Wang was on the flight to Nairobi, where he once lived, to get some paperwork to complete the family's permanent residency application. He was originally from China.

'He treated us very well'

Wang also leaves behind four employees who say he was knowledgeable and kind.

"We all got along good," said Len Zubot, a salesman at Big O Tires.

"Jack would have barbecues out back. He would buy us Kentucky Fried Chicken and he treated us very well."

Wang bought the tire shop about two-and-a-half years ago, Zubot says.

Wang didn't know much English when he first arrived, he said. But Wang had always been knowledgeable about the business and was quick to help out his customers.

"He was here to help people with their problems. If they had something wrong with his car, he would bend over backwards to help him," Zubot said.

It was clear to Zubot and the other employees that Wang had moved to Canada from China to provide better opportunities for his daughters.

"Jack was just trying to be a good dad and I think he just wanted a nice place for his family to live," Zubot said.

"They're a very, very nice family."
