Hla “Jack” Aye
Hla Aye (Jack) passed away on May 11, 2020 in Boston, Massachusetts.
Jack was born on May 25, 1955 to Dr. Htin Kyaw and Daw Khin Than Nwe in Yangon, Myanmar. After graduating from Saint Paul High School in Yangon, he went on to study Zoology at the University of Yangon. In 1984, he married his beloved wife, May Hnin Yu. They have two daughters named May Mon Aye (Kathy) and Cho Khine Yu (Chit Chit).
Jack was a devoted family man, and gave them the life he felt they deserved. His family meant more to him than anything else in the world, something he continually portrayed. He was unendingly proud of his daughters and his sons-in-law. He could often be found spending time with his immediate family, mainly with his three grandchildren. Otherwise, he would be seen taking care of his loyal dog, Nyloh. He was loved by all in his lifetime, even by people who he worked with and interacted with daily. His charisma and passion brightened up the rooms of everywhere he stepped foot in, particularly when a Boston sports team was playing or when he saw children that he adored. Jack was genuinely a nice person who brought laughter and smiles to those around him.
Anyone who knew Jack, knew that he was the most loving father, grandfather, and husband a family could ask for. He is survived by the love of his life, May Hnin Yu, and his first daughter, May Mon Aye and her husband, Khare Wilson and their children: Kaylani May Wilson, Maeva May Wilson and Khare Wilson Jr. He is also survived by his younger daughter, Cho Yu-Thach and her husband, Tony Thach.
