Age 78, of Sunnyvale, California, passed away on July 2, 2012 at home. He was born on May 21, 1934 in Honolulu.
He was a graduate of McKinley High School in Honolulu and served in the U.S. Army before attending San Jose State University where he earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration.

During retirement he was a successful financial investor and provided generous support to family members for business and education. A meaningful scholarship contribution from his estate was made in his name to San Jose State University.
