Obituary for Herbert Z. Wong

Herb's work has touched the lives of many. As a Vietnam-Era Veteran, he received three meritorious promotions in the field during his 16 month tour with the 30th Artillery Brigade (Air Defense), Okinawa.

A pioneer of fostering diversity and inclusion, Herb co-founded the National Diversity Conference in 1991, as well as co-wrote "Multicultural Law Enforcement: Strategies for Peacekeeping in Our Diverse Society."

Herb's love of teaching was evident from his 40+ years as an Asian martial arts instructor (Karate, Gung Fu, etc.) as well as 20+ years as an undergraduate and graduate psychology professor.

Deeply committed to accessible mental health services, he was the founding Executive Director of the Richmond Area Multicultural Services (RAMS) Comprehensive Community Mental Health Center, which provided mental health services in 17 languages in addition to English.
