David Fei

December 8, 1941 - April 15, 2019

David Fei, beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend passed away surrounded by his family on April 15, 2019. He was born on December 8, 1941 in Nanking, China and grew up in Taipei, Taiwan.
During his time in Taiwan he worked as a tailor and he worked for China Airlines before he immigrated to the United States in 1980 with his wife Lee and his two children Alice and Henry.
The family spent time in Birmingham, Alabama and Boulder, Colorado, before finally settling in Salt Lake City, Utah. David opened David's Kitchen in 1984 and his wife and son operate it today.
David loved his restaurant and his customers. When not running the restaurant he enjoyed a great meal either at a local restaurant or a home cooked by his wife Lee, a great cocktail and weekend trips to Wendover. His contagious smile, generosity, and ability to tell amazing stories will be greatly missed by all.
He leaves behind his wife Lee, daughter Alice (Mike), son Henry (Amber), and grandson Miles along with his brother Jack, and sisters Nancy and Lily, and a large extended family of nieces, nephews, and cousins who will miss him dearly.
The family would like to extend their gratitude to the staff at Osmond Senior Living Memory Care for their kindness and support while our father was in their care.
Family and friends are welcome to celebrate his life on Saturday, April 20, 2019 from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm at Starks Funeral Parlor, 3651 South 900 East, Salt Lake City. Guests are encouraged to use the complimentary valet parking on the north side of the building.
