Ba Phan, age 73, passed away on Sunday, May 6, 2018 with his loved ones by his side. He was born on March 1, 1945 to Hy Phan and Hoa Thi Huynh. Ba graduated from Saigon University’s School of Pharmacy in 1970 and moved to the United States in 1975. He became a registered diagnostic medical sonographer in 1983 and had the privilege of working alongside pioneering heart surgeon, Dr. Denton Cooley. Ba worked at St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital for 35 years.
He is survived by his daughter Stephanie Roecker, son-in-law Dwayne Roecker, and granddaughter Sadie Roecker who is the joy of his life. He found great delight being a part of her life and watching her grow. Our hearts are broken. We will always miss this quiet, hard-working, and loving man.
