It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to our dad. He was an exceptional father who always put his family first. Growing up, some of our fondest memories were the times spent with him.
He loved taking us out to eat at our favorite restaurant, where he would always order his favorite meal. We would laugh and share stories over plates of delicious food.
Dad was also an avid outdoorsman, and he loved taking us camping and fishing. He showed us how to appreciate the beauty of nature and taught us how to catch our first fish.
Watching us play soccer and taekwondo was one of his favorite pastimes. He was our biggest supporter, cheering us on from the sidelines, and never missed a game or tournament.
Dad also loved playing computer games with us children. He would play with us and would always make sure we had fun while doing it.
Dad was a loving, caring, and kind-hearted man who touched the lives of everyone he met. He will be deeply missed, but his legacy will live on through the memories we shared with him.
Rest in peace, Dad. We love you always.
