As a child growing up in Korea in the 1930s, Richard’s father Sejin Moon encountered poverty, child labor and other challenges that would normally spell a pretty bleak life story. Yet, through the generosity of a man named Robert Sage, a retired U.S. Army colonel living overseas, Sejin was given an opportunity to receive a college education in the United States. Seizing this opportunity, he worked hard and received a BA in Accounting from Oklahoma State University. Soon after, Sejin got married, settled down and provided a good life for his family in Southern California.
Yet despite Sejin’s many accomplishments, it was what he did in the lives of those he helped that make his story so memorable. For over 40 years, Richard’s father maintained a tax and financial consulting practice in which he helped hundreds of people in the areas of tax, personal finances and a range of other matters. Visits to “Sage” were conversations that centered 10% on business and 90% on life matters. The end result was always sound advice that helped and encouraged people in a number of different ways.
On July 30, 2011, Sejin Moon passed away to muscular dystrophy. Amazingly, even in his final days, he took the time to help and advise his clients, many of which attended his funeral. That tireless and unyielding devotion he demonstrated is Richard’s inspiration today. To be there for you through all of life’s challenges as a friend and confidant the way Sejin was to his clients, is Richard’s commitment to you.
