Wen Tau Yu was studying to be a pharmacist before the Monterey Park shootings.


MONTEREY PARK, Calif. — Two of the men who died at the Star Ballroom Dance Studio in Monterey Park, where 11 people were fatally shot on Saturday, were longing for new goals in their 60s and 70s.

Wen Tau Yu, 64 years old

Wen Tau Yu had recently started going to school to become a pharmacist, his son, Szu Fa Yu, said in an interview.

“He was 64 and retired, but he was exploring his second career,” Yu said on Tuesday. “I really admire him for that.”

Mr. Yu remembered his father as someone who always strived to be his best self. “His books and notes are still lying around on the desk,” he said less than a month into the pharmacy program. “It’s heartbreaking to see.”

He immigrated to the United States from Taiwan, where he was a manager in an agricultural company, according to Mr. Yu. “He had always supported our family,” he said, “We were very close. I learned a lot of him.”

The Yu family held a Lunar New Year gathering before her father went out with his friends to celebrate the occasion and never returned.

“We thought it was weird that he never came back,” Mr. Yu said. After hearing from his father’s friends that he never came to lunch the next day, his family reported to the police that he had disappeared.

Mr. Yu said that if his father had been a dancer, he didn’t know. His family did not know if he was killed inside the dance studio or while passing by.

On Monday, the Yus found themselves trying to cope with the news of the Patriarch’s death. “I didn’t know what to do. I was in shock,” Mr. Yu said. “When I first found out about this, I couldn’t believe it. Now the sadness grows.

Mr. Yu always finds himself waking up in the middle of the night. “I miss his harassment,” he said.

Mr. Yu added that he did not tell the news to his father’s mother, who is 90 years old and in poor health. “We’re afraid she can’t handle it.”
