Dear Mr. Doo (David) Yong Choi,

You were kind-hearted person and you have wonderful personality that inspires many people’s hearts and souls. You always made the people happy with laughs and smiles using witty remarks and humorous words. You were very successful person who taught a lot of lessons to many people. You also had exemplary characteristics with a lot of talents to enrich this society. Your faith as a deacon also helped a lot of people’s spirits. We wanted to spend more time with you, but it seems God in heaven wanted your help there to nourish many other souls. We will always remember good memories of you. Rest in peace.

We miss you so much!

To my bestest friend,  You were always thinking positively. You always took care of the friends who were in difficult situations. My friend, you were not the eldest son of your family, but you took care of all your siblings as you were their father. Even though were you ill in bed with pain, you did not lose your humor and you rolled back up like a roly-poly. After hearing your passing yesterday, I felt very anxious and petrified. I couldn't focus as if I lost my mind.  I wanted to think that God took you away since you had too much pain, but I still feel resentful to God so much. I feel sorry and missed that the current situation of COVID-19 prohibits me to attend to your funeral service.  Sooner or later we will all be there, I will see you again, go peacefully my friend.  Fortunately, your son is managing your business well which it comforts my heart. I will see you again sooner or later. My great friend, Doo Yong.
From your best friend, Sang Young Lee

Dear David Choi:

It has been 21 years since we have known for each other. The attached photo is from my wedding on December 25, 2009 in Seoul, Korea. You were very young and healthy by then. My heart was broken when I first heart that you became ill on the same year my mother had stroke . We have wonderful memories together when you, your wife, I and my wife travelled to many areas of Colorado, Florida, Oregon, Cancun, Mexico, Alaska Cruise, and Central America Cruise, and we remember that we always had fun and good times. It has been great honor to know you and I and my family members including my mother who has been passed away 3 years ago always felt that you were one of our family members. You truly have kind and generous heart. You always tried to help other people. I and all of my family members miss you so much. One day we hope will see you again in heaven. Farewell.

My deepest condolences to Mrs. Choi, Nalee, and YJ. I count YJ and Nalee amongst my closest friends. Their humor, loyalty and perseverance is a testimony to how Mr. Choi raised them. I originally met the Choi family in the late 80’s when we attended the same church. Mr. Choi always had a serious and respectable demeanor about him, but would flip that like a switch and joke around with me, like a dad would joke around with his own kid. Another memory I had was observing him in his work environment. The man had an incredible work ethic, and you could see it in the ways his employees respected and followed him. His last weeks in this world were a stark contrast to the man that lives in my memory, which makes this all the more tragic. No man will ever occupy the space Mr. Choi will leave in our hearts, and yet we anticipate the day we will see him again in absolute perfection in heaven. YJ, Nalee, Mrs. Choi, I pray you will look to our Father in heaven and find strength in Him, a strength your father/husband knows more fully today. Rest In Peace, and live in glory Mr. Choi. We thank God for you and will miss you.

Dear Family,
Mr. Choi was a kind, generous and warm soul. He spoke so highly of his family and his children's (and his) joy of the Broncos. He was always so stoic despite being in chronic pain. When I would see him, he would always brighten my day and reaffirm why I made the choice to care for patients like him. I wish there was more that we could have done to change the course of things and I wish I could have given him more time with you (and me). My deepest condolences go out to you all and may his warmth, caring and professionalism be a beacon to us all.
Warmly,
The Maris Family

Papa Choi was like an uncle to me. I have known him since the early 80’s and his kids are not only my childhood friends but are my best friends today. He gave me rides home, took me to baseball games, taught me about business and when I was old enough had the pleasure to have a few drinks with him. I always took his lectures as more life lessons and advice because he would always end the conversation with a smile and laughter. I miss him but he will never be forgotten. Peace uncle choi.

My deepest sympathies during your time of loss, my thoughts/prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time.
Your Dad is a success – who has lived well, laughed often and loved much, who has gained the respect of intelligent people and the love of his wife and children, who has filled his niche and accomplished his task. He left this world better than he found it, he never lacked appreciation of earth’s beauty or failed to express it, he looked for the best in others and gave the best he had.” –
