Quite a few visitors coming to this site are looking for writing about Dr. Gong, and I hope they will scroll to the entry below and leave their own memories if they wish. For those who would like to attend his memorial, this is the information printed in today’s Chronicle:
“A memorial for David Gong, a dentist who was shot to death last week near his office, will be held Thursday at 11 a.m. in San Francisco.
Dr. Gong, 56, was shot and killed at Jackson at Polk streets in San Francisco, a half block from his office, by a former patient who shot himself to death moments later.
The memorial will be held at Kelly’s Mission Rock restaurant, 817 Terry Francois Blvd. in San Francisco.
Dr. Gong is survived by his wife of 20 years, Erika Delacorte, and by children Steven and Kate, all of San Francisco.
Memorial donations may be sent to the California Academy of Sciences, 875 Howard St., San Francisco, CA 94103.”
