  1. A lovely gentleman, who I became good friends with as we did the same LJ Training Course in October 2012, and we both loved our gadgets.
    I shared many AE and other tournaments with him, always a great pleasure to see Kong.
    I was sorry to see him leave us for the USA, and now he is no longer with us, I miss him even more 🙁
    I know his laughter and infectious smile will be missed by all the LJs & Umpires that knew him.
    RIP my dear friend, you left us far too early!

      So sad to hear this. Had more than one dinner with him in Akbar’s , he always had a smile and handled his spice well. May he rest in peace….

    Very saddened and shocked to hear the sad news about Kong especially as he was a still relatively young person. . He was trained by myself and Abby at Wimbledon in 2012 and went on to attend many events as described by Abby and became a valued member of our Line Judge family..

    I will miss my chats and laughs with him which we had when we met at events as he was a very likable and easy going person and always greeted you with a smile.. On the professional side, he had a doctorate in Computer Science so we would also enjoy our in depth technical chats on occasions.

    It was a pleasure to have known Kong and he will be greatly missed by all that have known him.

    I am so sad to hear of the passing of dear Kong, such a lovely man always smiling and laughing at my silly jokes and teasing. Always made the AEO fun place be. You are in my thoughts buddy, love goes out to the family, Rest up.

  6. A great shock to hear Kong had passed away, he was the perfect gentleman and a delightful person to have as a friend.
    Wonderful conversations.
    I cannot believe it was 2019 when we sat together watching the finals of All England, that was the last time we met.
    Rest in peace Kong you have left a lasting legacy behind you and inspired so many.
    Sadly missed I will always remember your smile.
