March 15, 1928 – February 16, 2018

With Heartfelt sorrow, I Tats announce the passing of my beloved husband Aki on February 16, 2018.

Predeceased by his parents and two brothers.  The eldest brother Roy Passed away in May of 2016 in Okinawa and middle brother George in January 2017 in Mission B.C.

Survived by three sisters-in-law, Kiyo Oshiro in Okinawa, Toki (Kiyo) Nishijima of Lethbridge and Yoko Gillies of Picture Butte.  Aki is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews.

Aki loved many sports and participated in some, but his greatest love was his music, especially jazz enjoyed with his forever friend Dr. George Sakumoto and his family of Richmond B.C.

Aki will be missed so very much.  Flowers, food and koden are gratefully declined.

There will be no funeral by Aki’s request.
