TOKIO TOKI WATANABE 93, of Grants Pass, Oregon, peacefully passed away on December 21, 2013. He lived a very full and rewarding life, having resided in Hawaii, his birthplace, as well as California and finally in Oregon, where he retired in 1980. Toki’s courage and fortitude were an inspiration to many, including his medical team. A private remembrance celebration will be held this summer in Grants Pass. Survivors include his wife of nearly 73 years, Esther; children Joy Doi (Edwin) of Oahu, Sharon Souza (Everett) of Texas, Wayne (Alma) of Grants Pass; brothers Maurice, Fred and Jack, all of Oahu; 7 grandchildren and 17 great- grandchildren.
