Vuthy Pen Educational Trust

Vuthy Pen, Vuthy Pen and family at oceana highly respected programmer analyst at ISR for more than 15 years, died suddenly on November 11, 2013 at the age of 39. Vuthy was an ideal coworker – generous with his time, highly skilled, and enthusiastic about his work.

Along with his parents, siblings, wife, and many good friends and colleagues, Vuthy left behind four young children (Chanveasna, Thevin, Soriya and Avani) whom he loved deeply and talked about with great pride. Evidence of his great pleasure and investment in his children was clear, from the family photos in his office to his joyful recounting of time spent with them at sporting events, family gatherings, and vacations.

The future success and happiness of his children was everything to Vuthy. He would be thrilled to know that those he left behind decided to honor his memory with an educational trust for them.

Please join all of ISR in launching the Vuthy Pen Educational Trust.

All monies received will go directly toward supporting the educational needs of Vuthy’s children.
