Seau, here at age 4, and his three brothers slept in a converted garage in the family home on Zeiss Street. Seau's parents, Tiaina, a school custodian, and Luisa, a commissary clerk and Laundromat worker, were born on the island of Aunu'u in American Samoa. Their children struggled to learn English as a second language to Samoan.
