Dong Kingman Jr. ’55

It is with great sadness that the family of Dong Kingman shares news of his passing on February 4, 2022.
Since early retirement from Marsh & McLennan, he enjoyed lawn bowling in Central Park, restorative yoga and swimming at the JCC, vacations in Bermuda, art museum openings, concerts at Lincoln Center, Broadway plays, and all that NYC has to offer. He thought of his friends often.
His wife, Elaine, and children, Melissa and Jonathan, plan to inter Dong alongside his father at the Church of St. Mary the Virgin on West 46th Street in Manhattan. A small service will be held in the summer when the family can gather.
If you wish to celebrate Dong’s memory, please consider sending a donation to Studio in a School (; the Central Park Conservancy (; or any charity or organization of your choice.

  1. Very sorry to hear about Dong, a super guy. One of my best memories is reuniting with him, Elaine, and Prasert (Pete) Kulvanit at the time of the class of 1955’s 50th reunion.

  2. It is August and I did not know that Dong Kingman had died. I spent the last two days making a prsent to him, a restored phot of Dong Kingman Senior’s illustration of Virginia Graham. When I went to his page, I saw the REST IN PEACE and it has left me very sad,

  3. I loved Dong Kingman. In college (Trinity) he was my love, my life. He attended my marriage to another after break-up.. (his father never approved of me) After break up, we met for years at the family’s apartment in NewYork City) and continued to keep in touch until I moved away to another country. I have watched everything he has done, on the Internet, for years. If you see this, this is Eddy. All my love.
