Trung Huynh Vu, age 33, of Kent, Washington passed away on Wednesday, July 29, 2020. Trung was born June 16, 1987 in Seattle, Washington. Trung is survived by his parents, his long time loving girlfriend and extended family. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him.

Trung was a one of a kind individual to many and left an impressions on all who knew him. He had a magnetic personality and a laugh that could fill up a room. He was incredibly easy to talk to and within minutes, could make a stranger feel like that they've been best friends for decades. He was kind, giving, and had a big heart. He had a way of knowing when you needed someone and always figured out a way to be there, to be that shoulder to lean on.

He had many hobbies but regardless of what it was, he poured his heart into it and always found ways to share and encourage that passion in others.

He is dearly missed and was taken far too soon but is surely still spreading joy to all who surround him now.

I didn't know Trung as long as a lot of the folks here, but in the short number of years I knew him, we had a number of geeky fun times that I will never forget. Trung and I were both into Gundam models, and I've always admired his work. My best memory with Trung was our road trip to Vancouver to meet our friends in Vanpla and participate in their model contest. Both of us took home many medals, but Trung's amazingly done EX-S was the real winner and admired by everyone at the show. Trung's model work was of the highest craftsmanship and I will deeply miss sharing our work with each other. I will also miss his sense of humor, his love for all things in nerd culture and genuine hatred of Bumblebee, which I thought of the whole time while bingeing the latest Transformers series on Netflix. Rest in Peace, Trung.

I remember the car meets in some random parking lots, and garages when we first met Trung, he was a goofy hilarious dude that always made us laugh and left a first impression that we could never forget. We could be talking about anything and he could flip it around and make it funny. It was a rare type of humor that was contagious and you just wanted to be in his presence! We would talk up games, and shoes, to what car we would like to own next or what our next mod would be on our cars. We hung out and played board games. Every moment was a positive experience and truly showed the kind of character Trung was. He will be truly miss by many and definitely left an impression on everyone's hearts. Can't believe you're gone bro, rest in peace. Love Chris and Jenny.

I still can’t wrap my head around you being gone. We met at Games Workshop and became friends. Everything from cars to Gundam, WoW and gaming in general. Your laugh was infectious, You always made things fun. You were the first person to congratulate me when I got engaged and the first person to tell me you were coming to the wedding. The world has lost a really good guy. You will be missed brother.

Trung, bro i still can’t wrap my head around the fact you’re gone but i know you’re in a better place watching over us now. So many great memories with you. So many times we would laugh til we cried. It’s so easy to get caught up when life happens and i wish so badly that i saw you more these last few years. I remember the trip to Oregon we took for Tuanh’s 21st birthday and you were telling me how much you liked Priscilla lol. You’ll forever be in our hearts and we’ll miss you always. One love brother

I met Trung through my husband, Trevor. Most of my memories of Trung revolve around PAX. Since Trevor and I live in Bellingham, there was several years in a row that we stayed at Trung and Priscilla's house. Trung was always a generous host. For example, Trung would always offer to drive us all down to PAX even though Trevor and I own a hybrid. Even though the days at PAX were long, Trung could always make me laugh. Trung also always had a smile on his face. One of my favorite memories of PAX is Trung, Priscilla, Trevor, and I running around PAX trying to collect PAX pins.

Trung taught me so much about Gundam and painting- he had a fantastic sense of humor and I'll always treasure the memories I had with him. Sakuracon 2019, and the years prior he would set up a gundam painting contest and would help people get into the hobby. Rest easy man.

Trung, Bro....

I still can't believe you are gone. I can't begin to explain what this world lost without you. You were and will always be one of my best friends. Your laugh lit up a room and could always turn even a dark day into bright one. I'm sorry I wasn't there as much as I wanted to be the last couple years. We are going to kick it when I get there as much as you want.

You have left a hole in all our hearts. I hope you are at peace and know that we are all thinking about you. Thank you for all the memories and good times.

Rest in peace bro,

I remember the very first trip I took with Trung. He, Priscilla, Kiel, and I went to Galveston for a weekend where we rode a surrey bike along the beach, searched endlessly for Kiel’s crab legs, and played Uno for hours. It didn’t occur to me until that night that I was an hour from home sleeping in a hotel room with people I barely knew (except for Kiel), yet I felt safe and at home. This trip also birthed a chant that Trung and I would sing for years to come: “ah-huh, oh yeah!” I remember when I chanted it, it felt like Trung was still with me even when he had gone back to Seattle. I chanted it so often that I even got in trouble for it at school. That’s how fun it was to be around Trung. Everywhere he was, it felt like a party. He could make a trip to the grocery store feel like an adventure. He could brighten up any room he entered and make a stranger feel like they had known him for years. He had so many passions and carried so much love for his friends and family; for Priscilla, for Quentin, his dog, Hiro, and countless others. And his laugh. It was intoxicating. Even when I thought I had laughed my lungs out from his jokes alone, his laugh would take it to a whole new level.

Trung, you taught me that family transcends blood and surnames. You were like the big brother I never had. Even though the time I got to spend with you was limited, you were still such a big part of my life, and I’m forever grateful for the memories we shared. I'll love and miss you. Rest easy.

Where do I begin? You were the first person i’ve met when I moved out to WA like 13 years ago. You introduced me to people that I consider my best friends till this day. You and I always had laughs together and shared some great memories. From the car shows, the house parties, the kbbq meet ups, the sleep overs where you had your damn tv on all night, the BRG hangouts, you always clowning on me, TcTrio origins, i’ll ALWAYS cherish those memories. Your laugh was contagious and always the life of the party. You had a big heart and were there for friends when in need. Going to be hard not to see you at social events anymore but you’ll always be in my heart and mind. I miss you brother...alot. Life won’t be the same without you Trung...

You’ll always be remembered brother...Rest Easy
