James W. Hong, 43, of Southborough and formerly of Boston lost his courageous battle to lung cancer on Thursday, March 1, 2012. He died peacefully with dignity, surrounded by his family.

James will be best remembered for his kind, generous heart of gold and cared deeply for his family and friends. He was a child at heart and truly enjoyed the small things in life.
