Stanley Fong

Position

Train Operator

Veteran Train Operator Stanley ‘Stan’ Fong passed away in late April after a tough battle with the Coronavirus. He was working the ‘R’ line when he died, and did his school car years ago on the M line. He was first hired by Transit in 2001. Many friends posted their condolences on Facebook, revealing a wonderful, good natured person. Mario Williams said the following: “I am so hurt by this... We JUST asked today if Stanley was okay.... This is horrible, man! This dude was freaking amazing. Rest in Peace Brother Stanley, Love you man.” Another said, poignantly, “he was young, adored his two daughters and a good friend and coworker. It is extremely sad! RIP my friend. That's not the way it was supposed to be! I will miss you!” Brother Fong is survived by his wife, Cindy, and two young daughters.
