In Loving Memory of Tai Vong

With a heavy heart, our family has lost a father, brother, cousin, uncle, son, and friend, Tai Vong

Tai moved to Galveston, TX with his daughter Shaylee, his son Tydus, and his wife Kaolee to start a new life. When they first moved to Galveston, Tai worked tirelessly everyday as a fisherman at sea months on end. He did everything he could to support his family, and gave every bit of energy to make that happen. Tai wanted to do more, and was about to land a job on a bigger boat. Ecstatic about his new role on a bigger boat, Tai knew that he would be able to give his family much more. 

On Wednesday September 20, 2017, a tragic accident happened on his first day of work, and Tai was taken away from our lives. 

Tai was such a selfless man who gave his friend's or family member's everything he had and more. He always made sure that the ones he loved were taken care of, even before himself, whether it was money, food, a place to stay, or even manual labor, Tai was ALWAYS there to make sure you were taken care of, putting himself second. 

With great sorrow, his wife Kaolee, his daughter Shaylee, and his son Tydus were stripped of their husband and father way too soon. Tai had aspirations of giving them the world, and day after day he strived to do just that, but in the blink of an eye, we lost him.

We please ask that you help us in any way shape or form so that we can bring Tai's body back to California, so that his wife, daughter, and son can have their Dad close to home. Any amount helps and I know that if Tai was given the chance, he would empty out his wallet to help, because that is just the type of loving and caring man he was. All proceeds will go to his wife Kaolee, his daughter Shaylee, and his son Tydus

Please, help us bring Tai back home, where we can have a proper burial and service for him.
