Naro was a sweet and kind neighbor. He will be greatly missed. Prayers for his family.
February 16, 2021
Our sincerest thoughts and prayers are with Kieu, Chheng, LeLee, May, Pauheng, Lechere, and MK on the loss of their beloved husband and father. Naro has been a wonderful next door neighbor to us for 15 years. Our yard conversations revolved around our vegetable gardens, our wives and children, and our faith backgrounds. There could be no doubt about Naro's sincere love of and devotion to his wife and children. Naro's children enjoyed tremendous academic success in college, grad school and medical school. They are Naro's greatest legacy and he could not have been more proud of that legacy. Naro served his country, Cambodia, in the military. His efforts aided the U.S. by buying time for our withdrawal from Southeast Asia, and protecting our ally South Vietnam. Naro lost most of his family in that Civil War and immigrated to the U.S. after the war. Naro came to Chattanooga and has been the model citizen and neighbor. He was so kind to us all. He mowed neighborhood common areas and our yard and other neighbor's yards dozens and dozens of times. I would tell him that our son needed the exercise, but Naro would sneak over and mow our yard with his riding mower because he loved our son and knew that it made our son happy. Naro shared garden vegetables, Cambodian foods, and highly coveted Asian persimmons with us. He gave us our very own Asian persimmon tree that he had rooted and cultivated for years. Naro was a fearless and loyal friend. He once saved Kristi from an attacking bulldog that had been trained to fight. The loss of Naro will leave a gaping hole in our neighborhood. We all loved him.
