To: Loc "Gregg" and your family,

I would like to start by extending my deepest most heartfelt condolences to his family. I met Loc "Gregg" in the late 1980's during a fun time in life. It was later that I heard him being called Gregg, please excuse the reference to the name I met him as. Loc, was a great dancer and I remember him loving music. Southida is the cousin of my dear friend Kim. Through the years when Kim worked for LSP I would visit her and say hello to Loc and his brother Robert. We used to attend a club by the name of Café Bodard (in the Asian Garden Mall) back in the late 1980's. Loc would do the Roger Rabbit, Running Man and other popular dances of those days. There was a time when he won the male side of a dance contest at the club. I wish I had a picture I remember seeing a few years ago of him sitting on my couch at my family home shortly before a group of us went to the club all those years ago. There was a huge smile on his face. He had always been driven in life. I believe when I met the young Loc he had worked in one of the Asian Markets in Westminster. He always made sure to help take care of his family from early in his life. What I remember even more now is how fun it was to hear him laugh and his smile put a smile on your face.

I hope his family enjoys a lifetime of happy memories. Loc, Thank you for all the fun times in our younger years. You will be fondly remembered by all you have touched.

Gregg!
I will forever remember you. Thanks for all the laughs! I will miss your background singing to "Queen" station on Pandora. You knew all the songs! Even shared random facts about the bands/singers. Our little team lunches were kind of spontaneous but you were always down even though it ruined your fasting. I'm glad I got to meet you, and hear about your life experiences. Thank you for all the advise.
I am glad we became close, we were like a family and work felt like another home because of it, even though it was only a few of us. I will miss your laughter, wisdom and guidance.

To your family
Gregg always talked about how proud he was and how much he loved you. His two babies, mom and the boss, as he would say. I am so sorry, there are no words to express how devastating this is for all of us. He will be missed dearly and remembered by many.

Dear Anh Loc,

It was just 3 weeks ago that I asked Southida "how my brother Loc was doing?" I am at a loss for words and am deeply sadden by the news of your passing. You have always been my ideal image of what a brother and husband should be. God bless Southida and your girls. Help them find peace and comfort during this difficult time. If I could pick 1 memory of you it would be...of you just sitting there smiling and listening to me run my mouth a mile a minute. No judgement just the occasional "easy". Rest easy Anh Loc...we will meet again on the other side one day.

Love, Thuly

Gregg,
"My Aires brother!" , your phone calls starting with that phrase would brighten my day, your attitude was uplifting, and your frank& courteous approach refreshing. We will be feeling the loss for a long time to come. You left us on Thanksgiving, and I am thankful to have known you.

It is merely two months since we dined and you spoke of your family, your successful health regiment, your challenges, and aspirations.

Unfortunately, I can offer only words of sympathy to your family whom you were so proud of. I hope they can take solace in knowing that you had a lasting impact on so many.
Farewell, dear Gregg!

Biography

Loc “Gregg” Vinh was born on April 3, 1968 in Saigon, Vietnam. He is the oldest of his three brothers: Robert, Tuong and Cuong. Following the Vietnam War, Gregg and his family immigrated to the United States. He graduated from Westminster High School and entered the workforce immediately. In 1999, Gregg married his wife, Southida and moved to Irvine, California to start a new chapter. A few years later, he became the father of Libbe and Paige. His daughters always answered his question, “How much do you love daddy?” with “the best daddy in the whole world and beyond the universe”.

Gregg was a businessman at heart with big dreams. Outside of his day job, he worked two different jobs to keep his passions alive and enjoyed watching Shark Tank. In every situation, Gregg put himself before others. Like his favorite superhero, Superman, he always came through to save anyone and everyone. He was a lifelong learner and spoke about his life lessons and knowledge to all. To compensate for his seriousness, he was always cracking jokes. Gregg enjoyed reminiscing on his past through blasting 80’s music, watching movies like Grease and Music and Lyrics, binge watching Star Trek, and playing his retro games such as Pac Man and Street Fighters. If he’s not reminiscing, Gregg was an avid binge watcher of random shows and movies. It was his way of relaxing after a long day of work, besides taking naps. On weekends, Gregg would take his family out back in his hometown to eat at new restaurants. Out of all the food he has had in his lifetime, runny sunnyside and scrambled eggs covered in soy sauce were his go-to. Gregg is the definition of integrity. When he wants something, he sticks with his word and never goes back. Just three years ago, Gregg decided to change his lifestyle. He wanted to forgive everyone in his life. With this change, Gregg went vegetarian and worked out regularly.

Gregg was an incredible husband, father, brother, family member, and friend. On November 28, 2019, Gregg passed peacefully at Saddleback Hospital in Laguna Hills at 2:04 AM. Our love for him is beyond words. He will be missed dearly.
