Everyone that worked with Ha expressed that he was an exceptional employee. Not only that, he was a close friend among many. He was the foundation of the Ta Family, providing both financial and emotional support for his parents and niece.

In his spare time, he loved to have long conversations with his mom and dad, spend time with his friends sharing meals and making memories, as well as play video games. If he wasn’t out with his friends, he was spending time at his second family’s home with Linda Ho, Quoc Dinh and Davis Ho. Ha was always a family man and cherished his time with everyone he loved. Before he passed, his last words were to his mom, “I love you, Mommy”.

His Bank family loves him so very much and shares in his family’s grief. He was truly an angel who touched so many lives. He will always be in our hearts and minds. I’ve never met a young man quite like him.
