Timothy K.T. Wong Jr.
It is with great sadness that the family of Timothy K. T. Wong, Jr. announce his passing on March 16, 2019 in Honolulu, Hawaii at the age of 79. Timmy was a 42 year veteran of the Honolulu Police Department. He served primarily in the Patrol Division as a Sergeant where he trained many young recruits in the right way to be a police officer. He was extremely proud of serving on the Solo Bike squad twice, first as an officer in the 1960's and again as a motorcycle detail sergeant in the mid-1990's. Timmy was an accomplished artist who was able to work in many mediums. He could sketch, paint in watercolor and oil and created beautiful wood carvings including one piece Koa paddles of museum quality. Along with his brother Bill, he built beautiful trophies for Outrigger canoe races including the Dad Center and Molokai to O'ahu Hoe. Timmy loved playing tennis and softball with his many friends. He also enjoyed motorcycling off duty and started a club for police officers and their friends with his close friend and fellow police officer Clifford Kaneaiakala. Timmy was an accomplished chef and often cooked meals for his personnel when assigned to work as desk Sergeant at the Kaneohe and Kailua police substations. His fellow officers loved and respected him as he was fair and kind in his guidance, advice and discipline. Most of all, Timmy was a loving and supportive husband to his wife, Evie. They met in 1977 while filming the original Charlie's Angels at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel on Waikiki Beach. Evie was a surfing stunt double for Cheryl Ladd and Timmy was hired to provide police oversight and security for the filming location. It was the start of a long and loving relationship that lasted 42 years. Timmy is survived by his wife, Evie Black, daughters Karen and Kahala, brothers Don and Willy(Loretta), sister Anna May Thomas (Ken) and many grandchildren, nieces and nephews. The family would like to extend special thanks to Dr. Shari Kogan, Jessica Ackerman, APRN, and Art Ushijima, President and CEO of the Queens Medical Center, as well as Wannette Gaylord, Rudy Benigno and Roselily Dominguez of Gaylord's care home. A Celebration of Life service will be held on Friday April 5, 2019 at 12 noon at Nuuanu Memorial Park & Mortuary. Visitation 11am. Burial to follow at 2pm at Diamond Head Memorial Park Cemetery.
