OBITUARY Print

On July 18, 2021, Jong Hark Kwon of West Chester, PA, passed away at home with his family by his side.

He will be lovingly remembered by his devoted wife of 50 years, Hei Ja Kwon; his sons David (Liz) Kwon and Eugene (Salena) Kwon; and his beloved grandchildren Noah, Hanna, and Leah Kwon.

Born on February 14, 1941, in ChungJu, South Korea, Mr. Kwon was an idealist who dreamed of a better life for his family. They immigrated to the U.S. in 1974. He was the proud owner of his own realty business, J.H. Kwon Realty, for 22 years.

He had a lifelong love of learning and could often be found at his computer, reading the news, corresponding with family members and friends, and learning languages. He particularly loved idioms and had a binder devoted to them. He adored his grandchildren and took great joy in simple pleasures—spending time with family, sharing meals, recreating food from his childhood, and reminiscing about Korea and places he’d traveled to.

A private service will be held at Donohue Funeral Home in West Chester on Saturday, July 24, 2021.
