The Board of the Asian Council would like to honor the memory of Ming Hseih, co-owner of Yi Shen Asian grocery & restaurant, for his wonderful dedication in serving the grocery needs and palates of those who enjoyed his food and gentle demeanor. We send condolences to his wife, Phung, and his children. His loss will be greatly felt by many of us, his customers, but his memory lives on with fondness.
Rest in peace, friend and community member!
Ming Hsieh and his wife own the Yi Shen Market and Restaurant in west Eugene. Friends and acquaintances say the news of his death is heartbreaking. They remembered his generosity and how his American dream helped pave the way for other local businesses.
People who visit Yi Shen usually walk right through the front doors and were greeted by Hsieh and his wife while they ate or picked up grocery items. But on Tuesday, people who visited stayed outside the doors to drop stuff off.
People left flower, their thoughts and their prayers for Hsieh’s family. Officials say he lost his life to help save a family member. READ MORE ON KEZI
