My Dad passed away two weeks ago today. It’s so hard to believe, I can barely type the words. The memorial service was held for him this past Saturday, 8/27 at Chinese Grace Bible Church.
He was an amazing man of God.
Here’s his obituary as found on the Bakersfield Californian (or the Sacramento Bee):
David A. Wong 1952 – 2011 David A. Wong 59, ascended to be with our heavenly Lord on August 17, 2011. All immediate family was present when he died.
He was born on March 1, 1952 in Los Angeles, and was the youngest of 7 siblings. He graduated from UCLA and received his Doctorate of Pharmacy from USC. He leaves behind his wife of 33 years, Beverly Wong, and his two sons, Brian (Charlene) and Andy.
David gave his life to Jesus in 1975. He became an active church member and led several youth missions trips to inner city Los Angeles. The Juvenile Hall ministry of Youth for Christ was an important part of his life for many years. He played an active role in the life of his children. He was a loving brother, father, and husband. David enjoyed many outdoor activities such as biking, hiking, and dreamt of having a sailboat.
