May 7, 1962 ~ February 1, 2024 (age 61) 61 Years Old
Anthony (Vutha) Noun, devoted husband, dad, and grandfather, passed away unexpectedly on February 1, 2024, at 61 years of age. He lived life to the fullest and devotion to his family was the foundation of his life.
Anthony, born in Cambodia on May 7, 1962, escaped from the genocide as a teenager with his family. They immigrated to the United States in 1981, settling in Houston, Texas. In April 1984, he married the love of his life, Manith, and within a year, secured her a position at Hugesen Polymers, the company where he was employed. This marked an incredible 4-decade love story in which Anthony spent his life dedicated to taking care of Manith, including when she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and carpooling to work every day.
In 1988, their only child Eric was born. Anthony loved being a dad and always beamed with pride when he talked about his son. He was over the moon when Eric and his wife had their first child, Oliver, in 2020. There was nothing that brought Anthony more joy than spending time with his grandson.
Outside of his family, Anthony was dedicated to his work. For the last 41 years, he worked for the Wu Family in various roles, including his most recent position as General Manager of C&W Packaging, a sister company of Hugesen Polymers. He was a beloved supervisor, colleague and friend to all. As a leader, he wore many hats at the warehouse and was known as the person with all the answers, given his long tenure with the company. His strong work ethic, loyalty, calm demeanor and joyful attitude were assets to the company and his team.
Anthony was a man of few hobbies, but he loved to travel, play Texas hold’em and spend time with his many friends. He was known as the life of the party and had a smile that would light up a room.
He is survived by his wife of 40 years, Manith Kong. He also leaves behind a son, Eric, and daughter-in-law Ashley, who is expecting the couple’s second grandson; grandson Oliver; a brother; 3 sisters and many loving nieces, nephews and in-laws. He is preceded in death by his father Ya Sinuon and his mother Kan Kiv.
A visitation will be held on Thursday, February 15, 2024, from noon-1 p.m. at the Bradshaw-Carter Funeral Home, 1734 West Alabama Street, Houston, TX 77098. Immediately following the visitation, a memorial service at the funeral home will be held to celebrate Anthony’s life.
