Phamily Tragedy Fund

Quy was one of the most active youth leader at our church and was loved by many for his kind heart and humble soul.  He joined  VEYM - Don Bosco Chapter as a Youth Leader in 1999 and immediately, he made an impact on all of the youths, leaders, and parents with his passion in serving others.  Quy was very supportive and proud to be a part of the DB family. 

Quy’s ability to at the same time be the most humble caring human and the most sarcastic outgoing comedian is unparalleled. If you have never seen the TV show Cheers, go watch it right now. If you have, you know that you could easily insert Quy as a main character. His innate ability to understand people and make them feel relaxed and at home embodied the best of the RVA craft beer & food community. The truth is, he represented the best of what everyone should aspire to be… an amazing friend to everyone. As soon as you sat down at the bar at Mekong you felt like you were at home. If you passed him walking through The Answer with that smile, it was infectious. Quy was always laughing, smiling and giving the best hugs. He was an amazing father & husband and inspired others to be the same. He was always a source for motivation for whatever you wanted to accomplish. Quy has and will continue to impact countless lives. 

Rest in peace Quy!  You will be missed and loved forever by many, especially your beautiful wife and two innocent young children.
