Minh Hoang Tran, a husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and co-owner of Saigon Restaurant in Millis, Massachusetts passed away on September 22, 2020 at the age of 70, succumbing to brain cancer.
Minh is survived by his wife, Khanh Kim Tran (nee Le); his son, Hoang Minh Tran and grandson, David Luc; his son, Tho Minh Tran, and daughter-in-law, Linh, and grandson, Eric; his daughter, LouLou Tran Healey, and grandson, Andrew Healey; daughter, Nana Barker and son-in-law, John, and grandsons, John and Evan; and his son, Quan Minh Tran and daughter-in-law, Penny, and grandson, Ethan, and granddaughter, Ella. He is also survived by his siblings Suong, Diep, Nhung, Phong, and Linh along with their children and grandchildren.
Minh was born in Go Cong, Vietnam. He served in the Vietnam War from 1969 –1975 at Nha Trang Air Force Base, as part of the transportation and air warfare maintenance crew. Shortly after the Fall of Saigon, he, his wife, and young family fled Vietnam, arriving in the US in1980 where they initially settled in Salt Lake City, Utah. In 1987, he moved his family to Attleboro, Massachusetts. During this time, Minh along with his wife, Khanh, opened a small, 6-table, Vietnamese restaurant. Through hard work, determination and support from all their loyal customers from Millis and surrounding communities, they were able to expand the restaurant to its current location at 18D Exchange Street where it remains open today, some 33 years later.
Minh was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, and uncle. He loved having his children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews over for cook-outs, where he would spend hours patiently flipping his famous ribs over a charcoal grill. He was happiest when his grandchildren, nieces, and nephews raged Nerf gun battles throughout the house and would encourage their rambunctious behavior by supplying them with new Nerf guns every year. He was a jovial person and found humor in every situation. He loved working at the restaurant and looked forward to catching up with his customers. He was an avid New England Patriots and Tom Brady fan. He will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and all who knew him.
A private service is scheduled for 11:00am on Monday, September 28th at the Roberts Mitchell Caruso Funeral Home in Millis, MA.

To say that I am shocked to just find out
about Minh’s death would be an understatement! This lovely man was taken from us way too soon. We started going to Saigon from the beginning so many years ago. His wonderful personality never changed in all that time. Such a hard worker who just loved his family and wanted to give them a good life. Always a smile and cheery greeting for everyone. We have lost a treasure that will be missed forever. To all his wonderful family, my deepest sympathies. My prayers are with all of you. You are so lucky to have each other and Minh will always be with you! Love you dear Minh! You were always a class act 💔💔💔

Dear Tran family, Our hearts ache and we feel such sorrow for your loss. We feel like we have lost a long time friend. We have been patrons of the restaurant for about 30 years and no matter how much time would go by between visits, Minh greeted us with warmth and friendship. The world was a better place with Minh in it. We will miss him and we send our deepest sympathy to you.
