He is survived by his parents, Christie and Curtis Nguyen, his sister Chai Nguyen Domingues (Blake), nephew Luca Domingues, his other sister Asia Nguyen (Mitchell Byrne), his grandmother Nga Le. His aunts, Van, Thuy, Huong, and Suzanne, uncles Eddie, Shelton, Thanh, and Allen. He is also survived by a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, including his “Bro – Cuz” Rigel Morin, other relatives and devoted friends.
Tai had a smile that would light up the room as soon as he walked in. He had a way of making people happy and at ease, helping you find the bright side in even the darkest situations. He was a brave and loyal man who would do anything for the people he loved.
Tai had a heart full of love, he expressed that love in the little things he did, whether it was fixing your appliances without you asking or bringing you food and a smile when you’ve had a long day. Tai found love and enjoyment in his work through helping others by problem solving and doing his absolute best on a job. During his leisure time he enjoyed golfing and fishing. He also loved to get away from everything once in a while by experiencing new things and traveling with his loved ones. Tai was a faithful and dedicated employee of C.T. Traina INC, as a plumber.
