He was a loved bartender at Vietnamese restaurant, Mekong

From 8News:

"A longtime bartender at Vietnamese restaurant Mekong in Henrico County died while competing in a triathlon Sunday morning... The body of 35-year-old Quy P. Pham, of Henrico County, was found just before 2 p.m. Sunday, officials said.

Witnesses told 8News that a swimmer appeared to be in distress and went missing during the first early swim wave of the Robious Landing Triathlon in Chesterfield County. An 8News viewer sent in photos of a water rescue going on Sunday morning. They said first responders were on the scene immediately after the incident."

The Veil has this special beer they've been aging for 23 years, now named the "Quy" beer, that they'll release to help his wife and kids.

My friends over at my nail salon were best friends with this man, and were devastated when they told me this story. My heart was broken. I hope that this man's family and friends find peace in such a tragic time.
