It is with great sadness that we share that Rich Wong died on Sunday evening of stage 3 cancer, while surrounded by his family. He was 72.


Rich was a long-time member and active supporter of the ASTD-Orange County Chapter, and held several board positions, including President in 2006. He was a regular attendee at meetings until he moved to Northern California last year.


We received the following funeral details from his children, Nicole & Scott: 


Dad will be laid to rest with his family in Los Angeles. Please feel free to pass this along to any friends or family. 


When:Saturday, August 27, at 12:30 pm
Where: Church of the Hills, Forest Lawn in Hollywood Hills
Address: 6300 Forest Lawn Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90068


In lieu of flowers, please make a gift to the National Urban League. Dad's first job after graduation was running the Urban League's work experience program for disadvantaged youth in San Diego.

    I worked with Rich both through ASTD-OC and OCTA. He was great at building a network for himself and for others. Every semester he would bring his students to ASTD-OC and introduce them to members as potential interns or employees. Once you were on his networking list he would look for opportunities to help you in business by introducing you to others who may need your services.

    I will remember him as a happy and helping individual.
