Thach Ngoc Dang
June 23, 1957 – November 16, 2021
Thach N. Dang was born on June 23, 1957 in Hoi An, Vietnam. He was raised in a devout Christian family dating back to his great grandparents. His parents raised everyone in the family to keep God in their hearts and first in their lives. In 1974, after finishing high school, he entered a theological seminary in Nha Trang, Vietnam. He had a calling to enter into God's ministry. Unfortunately, only one year into his studies, Vietnam fell to the Communist. The entire family by the grace of God was able to flee Vietnam and immigrate to the United States. The family settled here in Winter Park, Florida.
In 1977, he started his career as a Dental Technician and worked for Dr. Stanley Post for 8 years, then in 1985 he decided to venture on his own and opened his own business called International Dental Laboratory Inc. He continued in this career until 2016, due to health issues he entered early retirement. He was an inquisitive man always seeking knowledge and understanding. He lived a life on his own terms. He loved to travel both domestically and internationally. He was the happiest when he wasn’t still. He passed away on November 16, 2021 at the age of 64. He is now embarking on his next journey with the Lord. He had 4 children, and he was proud of each of them in his own way. He was more than just a father, he was a son, a brother, a husband, and a grandfather. He leaves behind his wife, 4 children, 4 grandchildren, 3 brothers and 3 sisters.
There is no doubt that Thach Dang profoundly touched many lives. His passing leaves us all with heavy hearts, much sadness, and a void that cannot be filled. A Hebrew Proverb states, "Say not in grief he is no more, but in thankfulness that he was". Let us continue to celebrate his life and find comfort he is at peace.
God bless and thank you.
