I will remember Uncle Lingkon as someone who was always looking after others. Whether it was about helping someone fix something or giving them his latest findings, he was always thinking about others. On top of that, I will also remember Uncle Lingkon as someone who was so talented in his technical abilities - so remarkably so. You will be dearly missed Uncle Lingkon and I will always have fond memories of you especially when growing up. May you rest in peace and thank you for being an exemplary example for us to follow.

Debra and family, I'm very sorry to hear of Lingkon's passing. My mother worked for him at G.E. and always spoke fondly of him. He also had the patience to come and fix her home computer several times!! My deepest condolences to you and your family.

I will always remember my father-in-law for his willingness to put everyone’s needs before his own. He had an amazing ability to fix everything and anything. Any time my children needed something they knew to ask their grandpa first. He never missed their concerts or sporting events and would always bring his camera to record them. He will be missed but may he now rest in peace.
