I regret to inform you that a Patchogue Icon has passed away.
Johnny Lum, aged 60, passed away on Wednesday March 27th.
Arrangements have been made at Robertaccios Funeral Home for Saturday, March 30th from 3-6 p.m.
Johnny was a huge Yankee fan and the locals would know him as the fellow who walked the streets of Patchogue wearing a Frog Hat.
His Family owned Wah Lum Kitchen which is now occupied by Dragon Palace. He and his family were long time residents of Patchogue.His spirit will truly be missed.
When asked, "Why do you wear that frog hat all the time?" by some local children, Johnny responded, "It makes people smile."
