Long Kim Tran

June 22, 1951 — May 31, 2022

On Tuesday, May 31, 2022, Long Kim Tran, loving brother, cousin, and uncle, passed away at the age of 70. Long was born in Saigon, Vietnam on June 22, 1951, and immigrated to the United States during the Vietnam War and made Utah his home since 1979. He worked mainly in manufacturing medical supplies until he retired in 2006.

Long enjoyed spending time with family and loved to make those around him laugh and smile.  His one-of-a-kind laugh was contagious, extraordinary, and unequaled in a class by itself.

His loud, infectious laughter often overshadowed the joke itself and he easily had the entire room laughing along with him. Long had a passion for electronics and firearms. He stayed up-to-date on the newest tech news and latest innovations in computers, cell phones, laptops, and watches. During his time serving in the Vietnam Air Force, Long developed a fascination for the military and armed forces. He had amassed an impressive collection of both vintage and modern pistols, handguns, and rifles.

Long was preceded in death by his father, Tran Van Gai; his mother, Pham Thi Thu; and his eldest brother, Tran Kim Quy.

He is survived by his elder sister Hoang Kim Vu; younger sister Thanh Kim Luu; nieces; nephews; and several grand nieces and nephews.
