Hue Do

January 15, 1922 - April 17, 2016


Mr. Hue Do was born in Hue, Vietnam on January 15, 1922. He passed away peacefully on April 17, 2016 in the loving presences of his family. During his 94 years, he was a Vietnamese officer for 34 years then as American for 41 years.

As a staunch nationalist living in Ha Noi, at age 18 he joined the Nationalist Guerrilla Army and fought to free his nation from French rule both before and after World World II. He also fought the Japanese invaders during WW II.

Following the division of his country at the 17th parallel in 1954, Mr. Do moved South and soldiered faithfully in support of the Democratic Republic of South Vietnam until the fall of Saigon in 1975. Mr. Do and his family were then evacuated to the American 7th fleet and began a new journey as a loyal American residing in Bellingham, WA.
In 1976 following the rigors of immigration, Mr. Do began a 26 years career as a social worker for DSHS serving others by aiding refugees immigrant families in their efforts at establishing new American lives. He retired in 2002 at age 80.

Following retirement, Mr. Do loved and served his wife, 5 children, 6 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. He was survived by his sister and brother.

Now we must say “Goodbye, beloved friend”, as he joins his wife of 65 years who preceded him in death. To us left behind, his life epitomizes courage, duty, fortitude, perseverance, loyalty, selflessness, and above all, love. He shall soldier on beside his wife in the service of Heaven.

  1. Reading about Mr. Hue Do’s life makes me sorry that I didn’t have a chance to know such an interesting person! To have served his native country so well and then to have moved here and continue to do so for his new country shows what an exceptional human he was. Please accept my condolences for the passing of a great man. I’m glad that he will live on in his children, his grandchildren and his great grandchildren.
