After a six-year battle with cancer, Danny Lau (known as Coung Luu) passed away peacefully on March 14, 2014, surrounded by his family at the age of 46½.
Danny was born in Saigon, Vietnam, but immigrated to the United States 30 years ago. Danny will always be remembered by his family and friends as a hard-working and very generous human being. He missed working a lot when he was sick. One of two main things he wanted to do when he got well was to go back to work at Simpson Manufacturing Co. Inc. (known as M&G Dura-Vent Corp now). He also worked at APM Co in Benicia, Calif., before the company closed down.
Danny was always helping out people. No matter if it was to lend money or give a ride, he would do it without asking questions or anything in return. He did not have kids, but he treated every one of his nephews and nieces like they were his own. He would buy food for them when they were hungry and take them to and from school. He wanted to continue to take them to and from school when he got well – this was his second wish.
We are saddened that Danny left Earth too young, but we know that he is in a better place – a place where he does not have to go through more pain and suffering. He will be reunited with his father, Grover Lau, who will take good care of him again. We will all miss his presence and quirky sense of humor.
He is survived by his loving family: mother, Hoac Vinh Nhi; seven siblings and siblings-in-law, George (Ngoc), Anna, Chimgmy (Dinh), Simon (Tina), Andy (Bao), Cyndi, Janee (Loi); nephews, Wilson, Jason, William, Jonathan, Justin and Jayden; and nieces, Michelle, Christina, Kayla, Addy and Tiffany.
