Tom Fujisaka, grandfather, father, brother and friend, passed away May 2, 2017 in Berkeley, California. Tom was born and raised in Los Angeles and moved to the Bay Area where he started his family. He was a proud member of the Steamfitters Union, Local 342. After an accident left him quadriplegic for the last 26 years of life, he was determined to live his life to the fullest - continuing to raise his young family and becoming active in charitable organizations. He gave from the heart and touched many lives. He loved Hawaii - the people, the weather and his access to mobile independence. Tom is survived by his ex-wife Sandra Inaba, sons Tadashi (Elise) and Travis; grandchildren Kiyomi and Canyon; siblings Steve (Rosslin), Kathie (Walter Lehman) and Barb (Chuck); nephew Steven, Jr. (Julia), niece Shiiyu, dear friend Magela Vaz, special caregiver Maria Ramirez and many friends and relatives. He was predeceased by his parents George and Aiko. We will celebrate his life and bid Tom "Aloha" on May 20, 10:30 a.m. at the Sunset View Mortuary, 101 Colusa Ave, El Cerrito, CA. We plan to honor Tom's love for Hawaii with Hawaiian attire. Following his wishes, his ashes will be scattered in Hawaii. Donations in his memory can be made to the Always Dream Foundation.
Our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the deceased
