I had the pleasure of meeting Bac Thuan for the first time during my first trip to CA 9 years ago. He left Vietnam before I was born so I am glad that I had a chance to meet him. He was a kind man. I am sure even though he is gone, but he will not be forgotten.

My condolence to his children, grandchildren’, & great grandchildren.

Biography

Mr. Thuan Quy Do was a natural leader whose winning presence allowed him to take control of various situations with ease. Equipped with a clear and calculating focus, he possessed a tough-minded, “take charge” attitude. He had the ability to make even routine situations seem exciting, and he was at ease with the role of playing problem solver.

       His parents were Do Trong Trang and Le Thi Sen. He was optimistic in his outlook on life and was able at all times to be open and direct in his communication.

       His occasional role as family mediator gave him the opportunity to ease tense situations when they occurred. He had one older sister, Binh, and six younger siblings: Hop, Thao, Binh, Nguyen, Khang, and Nhung.

       His curious nature was spurred by his ability to maximize his personal learning style through employing a hands-on approach. He was good with facts and had an excellent memory. He enjoyed some courses more than others, having favorite classes and teachers.

       He was able to direct his energy and spontaneity towards helping his children acquire added common sense skills. They were also blessed with twenty-one grandchildren, Chinh, Duc, Nga, Hoa, Phuc, Vi, Dzuy, Bao, Vu, Uyen, Tram, Tu, Tin, Tuan, Van Dan, Michael, Bich Tram, Bich Mai, Vinh, Tyler and Laina.

       He could be a leader who sought impact for his decisions. He was a good negotiator who enjoyed new challenges. His primary occupation was an officer in the South Vietnamese army.

      Thuan was an Army officer. He was in the South Vietnamese Army from 1944 to 1974. Thuan saw action for Vietnam War. He achieved the rank of Colonel. He showed leadership qualities and could make tough decisions when he was called upon to do so.

       He had something of an artistic flair in many of the things that he did. He put this creativity toward all of his pastimes. His favorite pursuits were long walks, dancing, Mah Jong, going out, and spending time with children and grandchildren. He was content to enjoy his hobbies alone but was also willing to share his interests with others.

       So it’s little wonder that he was so active and giving in his community. Politically, Thuan was a strong supporter for the South Vietnamese government and a Republican.

       He was a Buddhist.

       He used logical analysis of his retirement options in order to ensure his retirement would be fulfilling. Still, he was able to easily adapt to possible changes and enjoyed just having fun and being relaxed. Retired to Westminster, California to be closer to his family. In retirement, he found new pleasure in watching movies, going for long walks, and playing Mah Jong with family and friends.

       Thuan died of old age. He is survived by his children and family. Services will be at Westminster Memorial Park in Westminster, California on December 7, 2019. Thuan will be laid to rest in Good Shepard Cemetery in Hungtington Beach, California on December 7, 2019.

       A concrete communicator, he relied on his senses to increase his involvement and awareness of others. He was always able to provide amusing repartee to his friends and acquaintances, offering a seemingly endless supply of quips, anecdotes, jokes and stories.” He enjoyed his life and the experience of living it. This is how everyone will remember Mr. Thuan Quy Do.
