Dennis "Yuen" Wong
Sep 22, 2014

Dennis "Yuen" Wong, born on December 22, 1933, the son of the late Charlie and Jade (Woo) Wong, has gone to be with our Lord, Jesus Christ and his beloved wife, Ann Claire (Foley) Wong who passed away in February 2014. Dennis departed this world suddenly and totally unexpectedly during his nap on Friday, September 12, 2014. We rejoice in knowing that he is now living in the Kingdom of God, in His love and glory, but he will be deeply missed by his children, relative and friends. Dennis graduated from Tabor Academy and then served in the U.S. Army. After being honorably discharged, he came back to Mattapoisett and worked in the family business, Cathay Temple,as chef and part-owner. In 1963, at his brother Stephen's wedding, he met the love of his life and married Ann Claire Foley in 1964. Dennis continued working in the family business until it closed in 2000. He then joined his daughter in Downtown New Bedford when she opened Daffodil's Restaurant. He would often be seen sitting outside of the restaurant in a comfortable chair, smoking and having an iced coffee with one of the customers. He enjoyed talking with people. As we look back and think about Dad, we realize how much he loved us unconditionally and enjoyed being a Dad. He nurtured us, encouraged us and listened attentively, but not always understanding because we drove him crazy. He taught us to forgive unconditionally and let things go. He was a loving, kind, compassionate and gentle man who loved to take care of his family. He was the type of Dad who on his day off would pile his children, nieces and nephews into the station wagon and off we would go for a day of FUN! In the summertime, he loved to wake us up when he came home from work, around 1 AM, to go swimming, cook cheeseburgers on the grill and eat cold, sliced watermelon. We again ask for your prayers as we begin another grieving process, this time for our Dad, because it is so difficult. Dennis has joined his wife of 49 years, but is survived by his three children, Lisa Wong of Dartmouth, Jade Wong and her spouse Jessica Oliver of New Bedford, and Dennis Wong of New York; his grandchildren, Joseph and Grace; his sisters, May Moy and her husband Phillip, Debbie Holt, and Sue Van Wiggeren; and his sister-in-law, Margaret (Foley) Wong. He was the brother of the late Stephen Wong, Claudia Wong, Meline Loo and Louie Wong. His Funeral Service was held on Saturday in the Saunders-Dwyer Home for Funerals, 495 Park St., New Bedford. Burial was private. Visiting hours were held on Friday. For guestbook, please visit www.saundersdwyer.com.
