In 1992, Khonesavanh moved to Connecticut and began working at Frito Lay as a Machine Operator where he continued to work for 27 years. His coworkers always spoke about his strong work ethic, but most importantly they would mention how much of a genuine person he was who showed that he cared. He was just one of those coworkers who spread happiness to the others around him.
Khone spent most of his time working and providing for his family, but on his free time he loved riding around town in his red mustang convertible with his top down blasting music. Most of all, he loved to eat all types of food and going to eat every buffet around.
