Died on May 4, 2023, in Salt Lake City, Utah. He was born on October 14, 1943, in Dong Thap, Vietnam to Hung Van Vo and Kha Thi Dao.
He married Bich Thi Tran in 1974.
Hue Van Vo served the Republic of Vietnam (South Vietnam) as Pleiku District Chief Police Officer. After the fall of the Republic of Vietnam in 1975, he experienced many struggles. He was separated from his family for 8 years and suffered from several strokes that led to partial paralysis. After returning from Communist Re-educated Camp he resided in Vam Cong, Vietnam until he left Vietnam. Hue immigrated with his family to Salt Lake City, Utah in 1992. Hue worked several jobs (operator in manufacturing facilities and as a dishwasher for Little America Hotel for over 20 years) to support his family and rebuild his life in America. Even though the stroke’s complications left Hue with permanent physical damages, these disabilities did not stop Hue from perusing the American Dream. Hue lived the true America Dream, where hard work and determination gave Hue the opportunity to succeed and have a better life. He always had an entrepreneurial spirit and instilled that in his children. Even though he was busy, Hue was always a big part of his children lives and never hesitated when given the opportunity to help out others. Hue really enjoyed good conversations, art, domino/card games, and watching Paris By Night and Asia Entertainment shows in his spare time. He really enjoyed Vietnamese coffee with condensed milk, any form of Durian, pastries, and sweets.
He is survived by three sons (Thong Hoang, Hoang Le, and Thanh Vo), and two daughters (Dung Hoang, and Tram Vo-Smith), and 14 grand children.
He is preceded in death by parents (Hung Van Vo & Kha Thi Dao), brother (Dung Vo), sister (Lang Vo), and wife (Bich Thi Tran).
