Obituary for Walter S.F. Leong

Walter S. F. Leong

Born in Honolulu to Tin Yau Leong and Mew Kee Leong on November 14, 1930, passed away peacefully at home on August 25, 2018. The 5th of 6 children, Walter was predeceased by siblings May Chang, Edward Leong, and Franklin Leong. He is survived by lifelong companion Lee Horn; sisters Mary Tohyai and Mildred Nakano; nieces and nephews.

He was a graduate of St. Louis High School, Class of 1948. Soon after graduating, Walter enlisted in the U.S. Army and served his tour of duty in the Korean War. He was honorably discharged on July 25, 1952 with the rank of Staff Sergeant. After receiving his Architect’s license, he started his firm, Walter Leong and Associates. He designed many condominium projects; Craigside (1979) for one; and numerous State projects, such as the Honolulu Interisland Terminal and Parking Complex (1981), school buildings, and community recreation centers.

He will be remembered not only for his generosity, but for his willingness to help family as well as friends, associates, and golfing buddies.
