Thai Trong Nguyen

Nguyen10-2014Our Lord Jesus Christ has called another angel. our beloved son, brother, and uncle entered eternal life on October 29, 2014 at 41 years old. He was an amazing young man with the most beautiful soul.
He leaves behind a very large family. He is survived by his parents, Doan Van Nguyen and Sen Thi Vu, five sisters (Nicole, Diana, Mary, Teresa, and Victoria), four brothers (Tri, William, John, and Joseph), and fourteen nieces and nephews.
Thai lived for his family and graciously took care of each of them in their own special way. His days were mostly spent working with his father and brother Joseph at “Ong’s Shop”. And when he wasn’t doing that, he was playing video games with his favorite “bubbas” Austin and Nathan. He will be remembered for his many attributes but mostly for his selfless, genuine heart. His quirky comments and silly gestures are still being spoken of to this day and will be forever. Although our hearts are heavy, we know that he is looking over us with a Miller Lite in his hand. Rest in peace Bubba.
The Visitation and Vigil Service will be on Friday, November 7th, 2014 from 2:00 to 7:30 pm (4 pm – Rosary Prayers, 5 pm Vigil Service begins) at Crowder Funeral Home in Clear Lake. The Funeral Mass will be on Saturday, November 8th, 2014 at 10:00 am at St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church in Nassau Bay, Texas. Burial will follow after mass at Forest Park East Cemetery in Webster, Texas.
In lieu of flowers, please send memorial donations to St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church.


  1. Hi my name is Carl Stockman Thai and used to be very good friends my freshman year in high school we used walk over to Seabrook intermediate school and play basketball at least 3 days a week we talked almost every day before I moved away. I remember him so much . I wish his whole family well during this time and I will say a little prayer on my end . God Bless.

  2. R.I.P. Thai. So many memories in Seabrook shared by so many people. You had a huge impact on so many lives and brought so much love to each friendship. The world lost one of the most genuine people I have ever met and heaven gained an amazing man. You will be missed by so many. Thanks for the memories Thai…love Vanessa

  3. I am deeply sorry for your loss. The Nguyen’s have been the greatest shop neighbors anyone could ask for. Thai was a person who liked to help others. He was always letting us borrow tools and received countless shipments for us. He was part of our team whether he knew it or not. I am grateful for all his help over the years and he will truly be missed.

  4. I didn’t see or speak to him in years but he was such a nice person back when I knew him. Hilarious too! Everyone really loved him. Rest in peace, Thai.

  5. Miss you “glocky” you are the best dude ever. You have been my boy since the jump. We spent our young lives together in Seabrook and El Jardin. You were always welcome at my house and your family always made a white boy welcome. The world is a lesser place without Thai. They broke the mold when they made him and there was never a more golden heart in this world. Although I haven’t seen Thai in a while he has always been in my heart and I will miss him tremendously. Thoughts and Prayers to the Nguyen and Vu families. Much Love and Respect.
