JAMES “JIMMY” WAH YAU WONG

Posted On January 3rd, 2018 -

JAMES Died: November 22, 2017 His life was nothing short of miraculous and blessed. Born on September 18, 1923 to Fang Tai and May Chow Wong in Kahului, Maui, he was a country boy at heart with a curiosity that yearned for grand adventures and exciting challenges ahead. His is a legacy of devotion and love for the people of Hawaii. It was his greatest desire to be a beacon of light to the indigenous people of these islands, with an urgency that grew after he learned of his own Hawaiian blood through his mother's family. He felt it was his kuleana to use his knowledge and abilities to help return the culture of Hawaii to its rightful owners and restore his lands in Manoa so his children, grandchildren and generations of displaced kanaka maoli could have a home where aloha could live and thrive. He never relinquished that dream of renewal and hope. For more interesting facts about James go to www.borthwickoahu.com. Jimmy was preceded in death by his wife, Ruth. He is survived by sons, Garret (Barbara), Warren (Napualani) and Darryl (Teresa), grandchildren Erin Green (Kirby), Alexander, Breanna, Kauikahanohaweo (Nicole), Kiakahi (Achaia), Leinani, Pokii, Jordan (Marlie), Jenna Dydasco (Zane) and four great-grandchildren; sisters Laura Medeiros and Rosie Sagon, and brothers Lawrence and Stanley. Services will be held at the Cathedral Basilica of Our Lady of Peace in downtown Honolulu on Wednesday, January 17, 2018. Visitation will be at 8:00 a.m. and services will begin at 8:45 a.m. with Mass by Bishop Larry Silva at 9:15 a.m. Fellowship in Kamiano Center with refreshments will follow at 10:15 a.m. Burial at Hawaiian Memorial Park will be private. Casual attire. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in the memory of James W. Y. Wong to the most recent activities he was devoted to: Our Lady of Peace Cathedral Renovation Fund, Roman Catholic Diocese of Honolulu, Cathedral Renewal Campaign, 1184 Bishop Street, Honolulu, Hawaii 96813.
