Thang Do Cause Of Death, Obituary Unavailable Yet – Thang Do has reportedly passed away. The news of the deceased death has left family and friends in a devastating state. The circumstances surrounding the cause of death of the deceased had not been announced at the time of this publication.
According to pivotnetwork.org, “PIVOT mourns the passing of our beloved member and well-respected community leader, Thang Do. He had been instrumental in PIVOT and our national movement from the very beginning.”
Thang Do was a dedicated leader and a friend who spent countless hours helping the Vietnamese American community understand how public policy and politics affect our lives.
He used his strength as a refugee, a loving husband and father, a community builder and smart architect, and a skilled linguistic artist to devote countless hours of his time to write, translate, and speak out on favor of our PIVOT cause.
He put his heart and soul into everything he did. He relished lively debate, interacting with and learning from others, and putting his superpower of translation to good use.
“Many of us lost a friend this weekend, and the community lost a giant. Thang Do bestowed beauty on our city with everything he designed at Aedis Architecture, with a passion for sustainability and for telling each community’s unique story. Thang’s own story was remarkable, having escaped the Vietnam War to build an incredible life and family—here with his wife Grace Liu—always giving back to the community. I will miss Thang’s kindness, thoughtful insight, and friendship.”
The redevelopment of downtown San Jose, CA, particularly the SoFa District where he worked, was one of his many triumphs as Chair of the City of San Jose Planning Commission and a member of the San Francisco Bay Area Planning and Urban Research Association (SPUR).
Thang also developed and assisted in the development of the Vietnamese American Service Center, which will give services to all underserved areas, not only Vietnamese Americans. He created a community that spanned generations and geographical boundaries.
He instilled in many people a passion for the Vietnamese language and culture. He demonstrated what it means to love family, community, and justice by his own deeds.
Our heartfelt condolences to you and your family. May God grant you the peace you seek. Please accept our condolences.
