05/05/1947 — 05/03/2009
From Connell, WA, US | Born in Khammouane, Laos
Sengchanh Phiouphanh was born on May 5, 1947 in Laos. He entered the military at an early age and served for several years before meeting and marrying Bounpheng Phiouphanh in 1970. Their family soon grew to include two daughters and a son. In 1980 they began their immigration to the United States. Their youngest daughter was born in the Phillipines as they made their way to a new home. In 1981 the family arrived in Connell, Washington, where they still call home today.
Upon arriving in Connell, Sengchanh worked in agriculture briefly before hiring on at Lamb-Weston. He recently retired after 25 years of employment as a Pack Operator.
Sengchanh loved spending time with friends and family, especially his five grandkids. Fishing was his next love. He spent as much time as he could at local fishing holes, one of which remains a secret to this day. If it wasn't fishing weather, you could be sure he was searching for a good boxing match on TV, or coming up with the next winning lottery numbers. Sengchanh was recently very proud to have attained his U.S. Citizenship and considered it one of the more important achievements in his life, along with his strong work ethic and pride in providing for and raising his family.
Sengchanh is survived by his loving wife Bounpheng; daughters Sompheng, Souksavanh, and Phetsavanh; son Det; and five grandkids Thea, Brooklynn, Sonia, Simone and Kingston; as well as numerous close relatives in Connell, the Tri-Cities and Laos.
The family is very grateful for all the support from the local community including friends, family, coworkers, doctors, and everyone else who cared about our beloved husband, father & grandfather.
One day, it will all be the same again, but better!

Souk, our thoughts are with you and your family. Your dad always greeted me with a big smile whenever I visited after tennis practice. I suspect he’s enjoying the continuation of his retirement in heaven fishing and watching the boxing matches in Vegas!
