Obituary for Heng Hsieh

Heng Hsieh was a loving husband, son, brother, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. He left this world surrounded by his family on the morning of August 8, 2017. Heng Hsieh is survived by his four sons, Sing Mu Hsieh, Tzu Mu Hsieh, Hwei Mu Hsieh, Hwue Mu Hsieh, and his daughter, Heng Mu Hsieh. He is also survived by five grandsons, four granddaughters, his great grandson, and the rest of his family and friends. Heng is preceded in death by his father and mother, Si Ming Hsieh and Zhou Shi Hsieh and his wife, Kao Keh Hsiang Hsieh.
He was born in Hubei, China and immigrated to Taiwan. He married his wife, Kao Keh Hsiang Hsieh on January 1, 1950. In Taiwan, he proudly served as a captain and hero in the Taiwanese Navy. He fought bravely for Taiwan and earned the esteemed Order of the Sacred Tripod (寶鼎勳章), also referred to as the Order of the Precious Tripod or Pao Ting. This medal is one of the highest honors awarded by the Taiwanese government and was bestowed to Heng Hsieh for his significant contributions to national security and repelling foreign invasion. He was considered a hero by the Taiwanese people for his valiant efforts in accomplishing an impossible mission.
After he retired from the Navy, he went on to captain oil tanker ships and trekked to over 50 countries. He was a great traveler and his voyages became his grandchildren’s favorite stories. He had more adventures than one could ever tell. Not only was he incredibly brave, he was strong, proud, independent, kind, and giving. It was impossible to meet him and not be enamored with him. After he moved his family from Taiwan to the United States in the early 1980s, he and his wife helped their children establish businesses and families. They have personally helped raise each and every one of their grandchildren. He was wholly adored and loved by his children and grandchildren. He will be greatly and forever missed by his family and friends. Heng Hsieh was a wonderful man loved by all and truly left this world a better place.
A private family service will be held at 11:00am on Saturday, August 12, 2017, at Kennesaw Memorial Park.
