About Christina Lim Huckvale

Christina Lim Huckvale was a student in Metals and Materials Engineering at UBC. She was about to start her fourth year when her life was tragically cut short in a hiking accident near Kitimat on August 25, 2002.

Born in Vancouver on September 2, 1981, Christina graduated from Magee High School in 1999. She excelled in her studies and in music, and exemplified all that is best about youth. She was an excellent snowboarder, a member of a dragon boat team, and enjoyed hiking, camping, travel and playing the French horn in a brass band. In short, Christina enjoyed life. She is survived by her parents Cuthbert and Pacita, and her brother, William.

Christina was a leader amongst UBC engineering students and was elected secretary in her second year. She loved UBC and was active in numerous activities in the engineering department. She was vivacious, bright, beautiful and a joy. Christina will always be remembered for her kindness, sense of spirit, leadership, wit, talent and intelligence.
