DR. DONG NGO
October 4, 1937 – May 15, 2000
All those who knew Dr. Ngo appreciated his love of nature, the outdoors, and enjoying the simple pleasures of life such as watering a rose bush or feeding koi goldfish.
To commemorate his life, the family commissioned an oriental plant garden built and maintained in his honor at Kanapaha Nature Center in Gainesville, Florida. This garden contains plants and flowers loved by Dr. Ngo as well as a plaque dedicating it in his memory. Kanapaha has over 50,000 visitors each year, and is a popular place for weddings and picnics. This memorial serves as a place for family and friends to visit and remember Dr. Ngo.
