Obituary of Dinh Nguyen
Dean was born on August 25, 1971 in Saigon. He spent his 50th birthday with his favorite golfing buddies Alvin Vatanavan, Tom Nguyen, John Kim, Ken Yue, Bruce Pham and Jaime Oteyza at his favorite golfing club with help from his favorite health aide, Jhoan! Not long after sunset on January 21st, 2022, comforted at home by his family, he peacefully succumbed to his diligent battle.
Dean was a charming and charismatic man with big dreams. If you knew him, you knew he loved to go to the casino, drink coffee and eat meat. But above all, he loved his family. He was over the moon eleven years ago when he met his wife, Nasreen and Pixar Cars fan, little Udie, and even more so when Paladin came into the world, his pride and joy. There wasn’t a night he wouldn’t get up to feed a bottle or change a dirty diaper for his little boy, and it was no surprise that his first steps were at Disney World!
Dean’s favorite ride was his Jaguar but graduated to his Audi SUV now that he was a family man. He wore this title with great pride, often falling asleep in the doctor’s office waiting room with a feverish child wrapped in his lap! One thing was very important that he did accomplish, both boys loved their steaks, just as much as he did! His other love, before his illness came along, was taking Nas and the boys on summer oceanside outings.
Dean is survived by his wife Nasreen, his son Paladin, daughter, Tylar, and stepson Uday Mahmood; his father Chuyen Nguyen (Gina) of CA; his brother Gene (Hai Duong) and nephews Jason and Aaron of Ashburn, VA; his brother Alan (Prang) of Thailand; and his sister Khanh (Hao Nguyen) and nephews Alexander and Andrew of GA and a host of in-laws and relatives very important and dear in his life’s journey.
