Gerald Tuck Kwai Wong, protector of family

September 15, 2021

Gerald Tuck Kwai Wong was born Dec. 14, 1940, at Kapiolani Hospital in Honolulu, Hawaii. He left us Friday, Sept. 10, 2021, to be reunited with his mother and father, Mary and Wallace Wong, and his wife of 13 years, Dr. Constance Wong (née Cox). He is survived by his son, Stacey (wife Jean); granddaughter, the beautiful Yuri Girl; sisters Valerie (husband David Sorensen) and Felice (husband Ed Broglio); and brother Stacey (wife Lorena). We all love and miss him.

True to his name, which means warrior with a spear, Gerald was a selfless and unwavering protector of his younger siblings and his many nieces, nephews, aunties, uncles, cousins and friends in Hawaii and around the world. Gerald’s kindness and generosity were limitless: he would give the aloha shirt off his back to help someone in need.

Gerald graduated from St. Louis High School and the University of Hawaii. He loved to pass the time with sports, yardwork, naps, reading and eating, not always in that order. He had a successful career in the fabric industry, and then as a real estate broker.

Gerald married his true love, Connie, in 2008. They relocated from Hawaii to Delaware in 2016. He would say many times how happy and grateful he was to have Connie as his life partner.

Gerald was a devoted Catholic. He believed in the power of prayer. He wanted to help others and did so in many ways, including visiting the sick and elderly and delivering food to the homeless.

Mass of Christian Burial will be offered at noon, Monday Sept. 20, at The Church of The Holy Cross, 631 S. State St. Dover. Interment will be at a later date in Honolulu.
Family suggests donations in memory of Gerard and Connie Wong to Eye Screening Clinic of Christiana Care Hospital at St. Patrick Center, 107E. 14th St., Wilmington, DE 19801.
