Our family is deeply grieved to inform you of the passing of a wonderful and great man, Stanley Wong Teck Lim 黃德琳, on the evening of March 6th, 2017. We are grateful that his passing was peaceful and painless. His funeral service will be held in the coming week in Austin, Texas.
Stanley Wong Teck Lim was born in Malaysia Borneo on February 21, 1930. As a self-made businessman, he exceeded the high expectations of his family and culture, with major accomplishments to reflect proudly on. At a young age, he founded Lian Seng Limited, a real estate company in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, that would go on to build Kuala Lumpur's first 5-Star hotel, the first million sqft+ multi-use building in Malaysia and some of the first housing projects in Malaysia. Eventual projects and investments would catapult the business all over the world.
Work hard, play hard. Stanley Wong was a generous husband, father, son-in-law, brother-in-law, grandfather and uncle to a diverse assembly of family who appreciated and sometimes lamented his unrelenting enthusiasm for fine cuisine, travel and gaming. Stanley Wong generously shared his table at some of the world's finest restaurants and his tickets to the planet's most exciting travel destinations and we don't think there is one person in the family today that hasn't sat with him at a Baccarat table in Las Vegas. His penchant for perfect delivery of service by anyone serving him, no matter the occasion, will also be remembered with a smile.
Stanley Wong is survived by his wife, Lana, his sons Jeffery, Jimmy, Stan Jr., Alex, and his daughter Elise, daughter-in-law Hui Yun, and son in-law Stephen. He is also survived by grandchildren Nicolas, Jonathan, Russell, Noah, Wesley, Gillian, and Vanessa.
The family further wishes to thank all the family and friends that have meant so much to our dear father in his 91 years. His life has been enriched by your presence and support.
Sending our blessings, the family of Stanley Wong Teck Lim 黃德琳.
