Nolan, Noah, Jacob, Samantha, and Nathan Dao
"In Loving Memory"
Nolan, Noah, Jacob, Samantha, and Nathan Dao, all perished in a tragic house fire on April 24, 2011 in Vancouver, WA.
All of these children will be missed and leave this world with memories of their gifts and talents yet to be discovered to the fullest.
Nolan (12) had a gift for detail orientation and was able to assemble the most difficult of projects without the boorish instructions. He took pride in that ability and we all relied on him when the time came to assemble anything requiring patience and tenacity.
Special thanks to: US Bank for their untiring support of Lori through these times, Washington Department of Veterans Affairs, Partners in Careers (PIC), Share House Vancouver, and so many of our friends who have expressed condolences. Your kind words and connection to us is so therapeutic and a part of the healing process.
We are deeply affected by our caring community and wish only to express our gratitude for all you have done.
They are survived by their mother, Lori M. Dao and sister, Alena A. Dao of Vancouver; grandmothers, Ki Wha Willbur of Vancouver and Sang Min Lee of Walnut Creek, CA; grandfather, Mike Willbur of Vancouver; uncle, Brian L. Willbur and his wife, Phuong Willbur of Oakland, CA; aunt, Kristine Willbur of Fort Drum, NY; and cousins, Nicole and Chloe Willbur.
The memorial service for these precious angels will be at Summit View Church in Vancouver, WA.
