FRAMINGHAM – Tommy (Yit Wey) Wong, 89, of Framingham died peacefully on Saturday December 3, 2022.

Tommy never backed down from life’s challenges and was extremely hard-working and patient.  He always had a smile on his face and his motto was “it’s ok, I’m ok.” Tommy was passionate about all Boston sports and his five grandsons meant everything to him.  

Tommy was born in Hong Kong in 1933.  He left there at a young age and lived in Canada for several years. 

From there he came to the United States, enlisted in the US Army in 1958, reached the rank of Specialist 4 and was honorably discharged in 1964.

He worked his whole career in the hospitality business and spent many years as the co-owner of local restaurants.

He was the beloved husband of Min Hue Wong since 1969 and is survived by his daughter Elana, her son Nicolas of Framingham, MA, his daughter Candice Pantera, her husband Matthew and their sons, Samuel, Benjamin, Nathaniel and Jack of Hopkinton, and his son Christopher of Framingham, MA. He is also survived by his brother Jim and his family. Tommy was brother-in-law to Win Lee Yang; Fu Mei Yang; Sumiko and (Skip) Sherwood; Chi Huei and (Ching Yuan) Tsai; Ken Yang; and Tony and (Tina) Yang, along with many nieces and nephews. 

Visiting hours will be held at the Norton Funeral Home, 53 Beech Street (corner of Union Ave.) Framingham, on Saturday December 10, 2022, from 3-5 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy may be made in Tommy’s memory to The Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.
