Tar was a great friend! I met Tae at ERA helicopters and we lived on Grand isle for about a year together on hitch! He would always either be playing the guitar or Xbox with friends! We laugh and even cried together! He shall be missed! Here is a photo of Tae singing while some friends were playing ping pong!

My fondest memory of Tae was when we went snowboarding. He stuck with me the entire time showing and teaching me the basics. What I took from that was that Tae was always patient, no matter how long it took for me to get comfortable snowboarding. He gave advise where Tae thought he could help or just listened when he knew someone needed to be heard. Tae, I wish I wasn't writing this memory, I wish I was sending you a message on Facebook to ask you what city you were visiting next, but life had other plans. 내 친구 평화롭게 쉬어

Thankyou for being a brother to my son. I can only imagine the two of you now playing the ps5 in heaven. My condolences to your family. This is one of the worst things to have to live with. God bless you. Love betty, roberts mom

I’ll always remember Tae being so kind to me and my family. My wife and he had a special connection and she absolutely adored him. We will always remember his great heart and sweet spirit. He was ready to help a friend in need at any time and was always super supportive!
I’ll always remember us racing each other coming home after work. Great fun! And when he used to ask me about how to make the perfect picanha. He had a pure heart and selfless atitude towards everyone around him. You will be missed bro!

So sad to hear you had passed Tae. My deepest and most sincere condolences to the Han family. I had the pleasure of meeting your brother and mother and spending the day with them.
It was a pleasure to be around such welcoming and warm people. They reminded so much of you and your generous and kind nature. You will be missed!
Rest in peace, Tae.

Man Tae I remember them times when you were working at Era and you would cook for us sometimes after we would get off from work. You surely knew what it took to make some good eating. You are going to be missed man.

Tae, you’re truly a one of a kind person. One of the most selfless people that I’ve meet. It seems like yesterday we were working in Louisiana. We put that alligator in our apartment and knocked on your door. When you answered, you nearly jumped through your skin! The times we had in the UAE. I will cherish all of the moments that we shared. Rest In Peace my friend.

Tae oppa was always so nice to me even though I was younger and always took the time to talk to me. I was so shy in 8th grade and to me, he was always the coolest and nicest out of them all because he made sure I was included when my cousin took me around to hangout with her friends. I saw him briefly when he came to Atlanta a couple of years ago and though he lived in Abu Dhabi, he would message to check on how I was doing, making sure I was taking medicine, and even sent me referrals as I was new into real estate. I just found out yesterday that when my father passed five years ago, he shared a post about my dad's funeral and he did that even though he didn't know my dad. The world has truly lost a kind-hearted, thoughtful, and beautiful soul. May he rest in peace and play his guitar with the angels. Thank you to his mother for bringing him into this world. You did a good job at raising your son.
