Kit Y. Wong (aka Larry)

Kit Y. Wong (aka Larry), devoted family man, friend and humanitarian, passed away Sept. 7th, 2017 at the age of 89. 
Friends and Relatives are invited to attend his Remembrance Gathering, Oct. 7th, 2-4pm at Bear Creek Assisted Living, 291 Village Road East, West Windsor, NJ. 
Kit was born in Da Peng, China, moved to Hong Kong at 3yrs, then to Aruba at 9yrs.  He had 2 sisters, 5 half-sisters.  Speaking Dutch, Papiamento, and Cantonese, in 1945 he ventured to America to learn English at Blair Academy then attended Lehigh Univ. on scholarship, getting an Engineering degree.  He married Jeanette Chien Loo in 1952, started working at Picatinny Arsenal in 1951 moving to Salem Village, Dover, NJ (later to Pct. Junction).  Known for his generous spirit and willingness to help the unfortunate and those suffering abroad, he sponsored and housed at least 14 relatives and 2 Vietnamese boat people (he led NJ State protests). 
He strove to bring stability, strong values and prosperity through hard-work and education to others.  Big-hearted, generous and devoted to family, Kit was husband of 65 years to Jeanette, and father to Dr. Richard Wong, Dr. Michael Wong and Lisa D. Wong, with 7 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren.  A champion bowler, chess, bridge, ping pong and soccer player, he enjoyed tennis, dancing, all kinds of music and writing poetry.  Possessing a deep appreciation for beauty, feisty passion for life, unyielding determination and witty sense of humor, he will be deeply missed by his Family and Friends.  From Kit’s simple beginnings in China, his spiritual imprint and legacy of giving will be felt for many generations to follow. 
May the Joy and Openness he brought to this World, walk with him into his next Journey.
