Chinhyon KimWe are really shocked that Dr. J.D. Han unexpectedly passed away. While willingly taking it upon himself to make delicious foods and look after his beloved two children, Ewhan and Susie, and his elderly Mom, Dr. Han set an example of a superb husband, Dad and son. Even before getting down to talking about the fond memories that his family and ours share of living in Toronto, he so suddenly passed away that our grief over our loss of him is beyond description. Rest in peace! – Chinhyon Kim’s family -
