Sam Nang Lam

May 15, 1963 ~ November 3, 2019 (age 56)


SAM NANG LAM — (5/15/1963 — 11/3/2019) 

At the age of 56 years young, he died from a senseless act of gun violence that took him away from his family. 


He was born and raised in Vietnam and immigrated to America with dreams of living a better life. 


From there he met his wife, Hue Lu and her two children Hien and Hoi. He loved them as if they were his own. He became father again to his two daughters, Nancy and Lucy.


He brought his son Maccara and his grandson Nhan here from Vietnam in 2017 to start a better life for them. 


He was a loving husband, father and grandfather. He gave up everything to see his children have a better life, a better life than he had. 


His energy, generosity, and integrity touched the lives of many people; he was a second dad and brother to so many.


We remember him with love, his dedication to his family and friends, his laughter and his courage.


Survived by: Wife — Hue, Sons —Maccara and Hoi, Daughters — Hien, Nancy and Lucy, and Grandson — Nhan.
