Tun Lin Shwe

February 4, 2022

Tun Lin Shwe, 55, passed away in Nags Head, NC February 4, 2022 after a brief illness. He was born in Burma on April 30, 1966. Tun Lin was a key political organizer in Burma’s democratic movement since 1988. He was imprisoned for several years in Burma for his work supporting freedom in his home country.

After Tun Lin’s release, his family emigrated to the United States and settled in Florida. There he earned his US citizenship and opened a Chinese restaurant. He worked diligently to become successful.

Recently, Tun Lin sold the restaurant and relocated to the Outer Banks to be closer to his one grandchild. The family will remember Tun Lin as a hard worker, a strong family man, and a proud American. Survivors include his wife Tin Tin Aye-Shwe of the Kill Devil Hills residence; his son, Aung Shwe (Iulia); his daughter, Wiri Shwe; and his granddaughter, Ellie Shwe all of Kill Devil Hills, as well as several siblings and numerous other relatives in Burma.

The family will host a private gathering with their close friends in the near future to honor Tun Lin’s life.  Expressions of sympathy and comfort may be shared via the online registry at www.gallopfuneralservices.com.
