Firefighter Kelly Wong Memorial Fund

Remembering Firefighter Wong

Kelly was a hard working individual who was dedicated to learning his craft.  He was a loving father who frequently shared pictures of his baby Colton.  Kelly was always in the mix when it came to anything from cooking, training or doing work on the apparatus.  He is a brother that will truly be missed, but not forgotten.

About Firefighter Wong

Firefighter Wong graduated from the LAFD Recruit Academy on Terminal Island in August 2015, earning accolades as the top academic performer in his class.  He was a two year veteran of the LAFD and was assigned to Fire Station 92 in Rancho Park at the time of his passing.  Firefighter Wong is survived by his wife Danielle, his infant son Colton, his mother Ann, his mother-in-law and father-in-law Barbara and Michael Quinlan and his sisters-in-law Nicole and Stephanie.
