In 1979, Hak Soon and Yung Soon became business owners opening You’s Burgers (1979-1994). This humble small business provided just about everything the family of 6 needed. The American Dream personified. Hak Soon was preceded in death by his parents, siblings, and granddaughters Christina and Diana. Hak Soon is survived by his wife Yung Soon; children Dong, Soen, Seon, and Don; grandchildren Alexander, Christian, Tyler, Stephen, Nicole, Natalie, Rechelle, Max, and Aodhan.
