Ty Van Gian was born on the 4th of October 1929 in a countryside town called Soc Trang in Vietnam. The majority of his life was spent in Vietnam until he relocated together with his wife to Las Vegas, Nevada in 2006 to be close to family, where he resided until passing on the 13th of February 2022, at the age of 93.
Ty was the middle child to an older and younger sister. He lost his father at the age of 4 and being the only son, Ty matured at a very early age and began looking after his family by the time he was 8. Ty started off selling ice cream in his hometown until he turned 18 and relocated with his family to the bustling city, Saigon. During this time, he started a successful family business selling dried cured fish until the Vietnam War in 1976. By the age of 27, Ty met and married the love of his life, Hoa, in 1956.
Ty was a man of duty resilience, reliability, respect, dignity, and wisdom. He was a serious and disciplined man but he could never resist the opportunity to have a laugh and spend time with friends and loved ones. Ty frequently contributed back to society during his time in Vietnam, particularly those in need. To our family, he was the knight in shining armor.
Ty has seen a lot happen in his lifetime and faced a lot of challenges, particularly during the Vietnam War. However, his resilience has been so powerful throughout his lifetime, it has influenced and shaped the children's families today by creating a continuous strong bond of family resilience.
Ty is preceded in death by his father: Thuy Dong Gian; mother Trinh Thi La; younger sister: Lien Thuc Gian (Vietnam) and eldest daughter, Hoa Thieu Gian.
Ty was survived by his wife of 66 years, Hoa Truong, she shortly after also left this earth to be with Ty on the 1st of March, 2022.
Ty is survived by his older sister, Anh Thuc Gian; 2 sons, Duc Gian (Vietnam) and Hong Gian (Vietnam); 5 daughters, Quyen Gian (Vietnam), Hue Gian, So Gian (Australia), Sanso Gian, Crystal Quach; 5 sons-in-law; Phuoc Trang (Vietnam), Man Mai, An Tran (Austalia), Sang Lap Trang (Vietnam), Trien Trang (Vietnam), Jenny Tran (Australia), Fu Trang (Vietnam), Paul Tran (Australia), Cynthia Te, Kathleen Quach, Eric Hong, Hung Gian (Vietnam), Queenie Quach, Allison Quach, Linh Gian (Vietnam).
