Stewart Tuoi Van Vo passed away on January 12, 2018 in Raleigh NC
due to complications related to Alzheimer's dementia. He was 88 years old.
Stewart was born in Bien Hoa, Vietnam to his parents, Vo van Som and Nguyen thi Sua. He graduated from High School and earned multiple bachelor degrees in Architecture and Accounting, and in Real Estate (California).

He lived for a number of years in Bien Hoa and Saigon, Vietnam and worked in the South Vietnamese government, then as a general contractor and architect, and owned a building supplies business before moving to Raleigh, NC in 1987.

Stewart found great joy in his grandchildren, faithfully teaching or tutoring their school work, attending music and athletic events, and providing enthusiastic support. He also enjoyed continuing his education at Wake Technical Community College and NC State, playing soccer, and reading. He was very active within the Vietnamese community here and was the President of the Raleigh-area Vietnamese Association for a number of years.

Stewart is survived by his wife Tram Thi Tran and his two sons Vang (Stephen) Ngoc Vo and Minh (Michael) Ngoc Vo; his seven daughters Thinh (Jessica) Thi Kim Vo Ngo and husband Roi Van Ngo, Thao (Jennifer) Thi Kim Vo, Hanh (Lisa) Thi Kim Vo Chung and husband Minh Diep Chung, Thu (Cindy) Thi Kim Vo and husband Tien Duc Cao, Phu (Diane) Thi Kim Vo Smith and husband Tony Smith, Long Thi Kim Vo Yates and husband Stan Yates, and Huong (Victoria) Thi Kim Vo and husband Tam Xuan Cao; and seven grandchildren, Jennifer Lynn Ngo, Brian Lee Ngo, William Alexander Smith, Maxwell Louis Yates, Catherine Jean Yates, Michelle Bao Nhi Vo, and Vivian Thanh Cao.
