Kha Nguyen

May 25, 1952 - April 06, 2017


Kha Nguyen was born on May 25th, 1952 in Vietnam. He spent four years studying mathematics in Japan during his early 20s before earning his bachelor’s in electrical engineering at the University of Florida. He moved to California where he met his wife Jennifer. He worked for almost forty years as an electrical engineer, earning awards and patents among other accomplishments.

Kha was the best husband of his wife, father of his two daughters, Monika and Olivia, and owner of his late dog, Roxie. He was honest, wise, and kind. He was beyond selfless not just towards his family, friends, and coworkers but also towards acquaintances and strangers. He spent his whole life caring for and putting others before himself. He was a husband who would stay up all night tending to his newborn first daughter, insisting that his wife rest. He was a father who would straighten his daughters’ hair and stay up all night helping them with their school projects. He was an owner who hand sewed socks for Roxie. In his spare time, he loved playing tennis, volleyball, and ping pong with his coworkers.

Kha passed away peacefully at home with his family around him on April 6th, 2017 after a long, courageous battle with cancer.

  1. Uncle Kha was family to many of us here at Marvell. He is well respected for his intelligence and technical capabilities as an engineer, a technical lead, and a manager. But many of us know Uncle Kha as the man with the warm smile and witty remarks, who occasionally performed magic tricks to entertain us, the highly decorated ping pong player whose was known for his Tomahawk serves, the energetic blocker and spiker in volleyball.
    Uncle Kha was someone I highly admired, not only for his technical abilities, but also for his wisdom, warmth, and strength in character. I feel very fortunate to have known him and to call him my friend. To say that he will be missed is an understatement. He will be forever in our hearts…

    Kha is a world class engineer, because of his immense capacity and technical capability, he managed and helped us in every aspect of the project that we work together. It is rare for me to work with somebody like Kha who is so capable, yet so humble and funny to work with, above all, he genuinely cares about us and wants to help all of us, I will forever miss his kindness, his guidance and his high spirit, I like to share one his phases that he often said to us.
