Quoc Bui obituary –

Quoc Tan Bui of Farmington, Connecticut, age 50, died in Boston, Massachusetts. on Sunday, May 26, 2024 due to complications from a clinical trial. Quoc was born in Vientiane, Loas, and grew up in Coon Rapids, Minnesota, attending school there and excelling in academics, orchestra, gymnastics and diving. He always had the ability to make people bond with his sunny personality and never let a bright or humorous moment go to waste. He attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison and St. Thomas in the Twin Cities, Minnesota, where he graduated with a degree in business accounting. He later completed an MBA at the University of Southern New Hampshire. Quoc spent most of his career at Hartford Insurance Company in Hartford, CT. He was committed to excelling in his profession and took great pride in the value he added to his work. Quoc had many interests outside his career, including photography, audio engineering, videography and music making. Quoc also cherished time with those he loved most, his friends and family, and lived experiences in places that had deep meaning to him. Quoc studied in Japan, and his own culture was something he became immensely proud of and committed to honoring. Quoc was known as the ‘nice uncle’, to his many nieces and nephews, who came into his life in the form of family, in-laws and other special young people who knew and loved him as ‘Uncle Quoc’. “Uncle Cookie, let’s start the silly fun,” and so they went. Quoc was also an elite online racing driver and was particularly particular about many things, especially his hair, BMW 328 and 4K resolution. Quoc found peace in nature and always strived to be around the things that brought him deeper peace. He found that in his faith, his cat Jasmine, his love for Lucia and in his friends and family. Although not outwardly a man of many words, he was an avid writer, easily expressing and demonstrating another skill in which he excelled. Quoc is loved and survived by his family: father, Tuat Van Bui, and mother, Ngocbich Thi Trinh, Lucia Nazzaro; sisters Uyen (Brian) Anderson and Quynh (Joe) Trueblood; brother Tybalt Bui; cousins ​​Reed Trueblood and Soren Anderson; nieces Tess Trueblood and Silje Anderson; numerous aunts, uncles and cousins; and many in-laws and friends who were also his family. Quoc took on extreme challenges with courage and determination, demonstrating a strength that could not be captured in words, right to the end.
