Han-Tae Park

September 1, 1983, tore at the souls of the Park Family and their friends.  According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, "A close friend and neighbor of the Park family described Mrs. Park as being so overwhelmed with grief that she could not speak, to anyone, even her children... the boys have known that something terrible has happened... but they don't know what it is."

Neighbors and friends took care of the couple's children while Mrs. Park slept under sedation.

Kyong Hwa and Han Tae Park have three boys--Chan, Jesse, and John.  At the time of the shoot down they were 8, 12 and 14, respectively.

Permanent residents of the US, they had moved to Audobon, PA, from Korea when Mr. Park was transferred from home to Amkor Electronics' Norristown, PA, facility in 1976.

The 42-year-old electronics engineer was on his way to attend his sister's wedding as well as tend to Amkor business.  "He is an excellent engineer, and also a very honest and honorable person," said neighbor Chung Lee.
