Kevin Kong

Kevin Chrisna Kong was taken from this life much too soon on June 18, 2012. Kevin entered this life on June 13, 1995, and into the arms of his loving parents, Sokha and Chhoum Chea-Kong.

Kevin lived and enjoyed his life to the absolute fullest. He cherished his friends and his family. He loved helping others and most of all he LOVED basketball. He played with enthusiasm and pride. His greatest accomplishment was making the Lincoln Varsity team. He not only worked hard at excelling at basketball but also on being a great team member. He was loved and admired by all who knew him, and he will forever be missed.

Those left to cherish his memory are his parents, Sokha and Chhoum; his brother, Alvin; his grandparents, Samang and Sady Kong and Chhoeuth Chhan; his aunts, Sophear Chea and Devi Kong-Lundquise; his uncles, Andy Kong and Jefferson Lundquist; his cousins, Raksmei and Sonja Lundquist; along with many other loving family and friends.

Funeral services will be at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 23, 2012, at the Round House at the Lincoln High Main Campus. He will be laid to rest at Elm Grove Cemetery immediately following the service. Family will greet friends from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Friday, June 22, at Hamilton’s Southtown Funeral Home, 5400 SW 9th Street.

Memorial contributions may be directed to the family in loving memory of Kevin.
