Henry G. "Hank" Wong, 1975-76 president of the East Bay Chapter, died July 12. He was 73.
Wong, a partner with Oakland-based Clark, Wong, Foulkes & Barbieri (now RINA Accountancy Corp.), was a 44-year member of CalCPA.
In addition to his work in chapter leadership, Wong was a member of the Litigation Consulting Services, Estate Planning, Personal Financial Planning and Dispute Resolution Consulting committees.
He was also president of the Wa Sung Club, a member of the Rotary Club of Oakland and served on the arbitration panel for the New York Stock Exchange, the Pacific Stock Exchange, the National Association of Securities Dealers and the Alameda County Bar Association's Fee Arbitration Panel.
A true renaissance man, Wong explored horticulture after he retired, and held two patents for his own species of plums and nectarines. He also became a member of the Screen Actors Guild after his retirement, and had a speaking role in the 1994 movie Golden Gate, as well as appearing in several PG&E commercials.
"Hank was like a brother to me. He was a scholar, a unique individual and a really nice guy," says Dave Foulkes, former partner with Clark, Wong, Foulkes & Barbieri. "He will be greatly missed."
He is survived by his wife, Helen; sons, Evan, Bruce and Randy; daughter-in-law, Judy; sister, Yuck Har and brother-in-law, Nam.
