Michael Quoc-Phong Ngo, 85, of Houston, Texas was brought home to be with our great Lord on Tuesday, August 8, 2017. Our father was born in Hanoi, Vietnam on February 20, 1932 to Anthony Khanh-Thuc Ngo and Ann Ngoc-Vinh Pham. He was married to Katherine Nguyet-Lien Vu Ngo for 65 years.

Mr. Ngo attained a Master's level of education in Britain at Cambridge and taught English, Grammar and Literature in Saigon, Vietnam prior to coming to the United States. Starting anew with nothing like most immigrants in America, he did everything necessary to lead and provide for his family. His interests and passions throughout his life included a multitude of things that enriched himself culturally such as traveling, reading, learning about and often mastering other languages, music, traditional Asian astrology and feng shui. However, at the heart of it all, our father strived to be close to God and thoroughly enjoyed sharing memories with and being around his family and friends.

In his nuclear family, Mr. Ngo is survived by: his wife, Katherine; his children (from oldest to youngest) Bernadette Lien-Nga Huynh and her husband, Tai Huynh; Luke Quoc-Thai Ngo and his wife Nicki Tuyet-Nga Le; Mary Ellen Ngo; John Quoc-Khanh Ngo and his wife Mary Minh-Ha Ngo; Gabriel Quoc-Anh Ngo and his wife Belinda Lee; his grandchildren (from oldest to youngest) Jennifer Phuong-Lien Mohtashami and her husband Vafa Mohtashami; David Quoc-Trung Ngo and his wife Denise Ngo; Christopher Quoc-Tuan Ngo and his wife Sonya Garcia Ngo; Jonathan Quoc-Huy Ngo; Christine Phuong-Cac Ngo; Matthew Quoc-Bao Ngo; Nicolas Quoc-Cuong Ngo; and his great grandchildren Ben, Mia, and Maisie Mohtashami.

There will be a private family viewing on Thursday, August 17, 2017 from 4:00PM - 6:00PM, and then visitation will begin from 6:00PM - 8:00PM at Forest Park East Funeral Home address 21620 Gulf Freeway, Webster, Texas 77598.
