Obituary for Trien Duong

Trien Quoc Duong, age 66, passed away Friday, September 27, 2019 at home in Spring Grove with his loving family by his side.

Trien was born on May 8, 1953 in Hai Phong, Vietnam to Duong Nang Dung and Pham Thi Ly. He was born with a spirit for adventure, a passion for music, and an insuppressible can-do attitude that carried him through his life.

A creative soul, Trien excelled in the arts and sciences. He met his wife and lifelong love, Hoa, in an acting academy in Saigon. He played drums and guitar in a traveling band throughout Vietnam to entertain the troops. When he and his family fled the fall of Saigon in 1975, they arrived with the literal clothes on their backs. From nothing, Trien and his family built a whole and fulfilling life in South Bend, Indiana. He was an avid Notre Dame football fan, a project engineer at Century Center, a press engineer for several printing presses, and a drummer in several local cover bands. After becoming empty-nesters, he and his wife enjoyed traveling and spending time with family where he relished his role as grandfather (Pop Pop).

Trien’s zest for life helped him battle recurring cancer in 2010 and 2011, and multiple strokes in 2017 and 2018. He put up a courageous fight to the end.

Trien is survived by his wife of 45 years, Hoa; his daughters, Giao (David) Williams and Liz (Brian) Mazur; granddaughters, Quynh and Lucy Williams; brothers Chan (Winnie), Chinh (Lien), Andy (Cora); sisters Mai Huong (Kim), Oanh, Mai Anh; and numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews.

Trien was preceded in death by his parents and older brother, Chuong Duong.
