Dr. Ted Aoki

September 13, 2012
Dr. Aoki was my father's colleague at the U of A but he and June also became very good friends of our entire family. I remember how excited and supportive they both were when I decided to teach in Japan. Dr. Aoki wrote a "self introduction" speech in Japanese for me. He practiced and practiced it with me until my pronunciation was good. My school superintendent in Japan was so surprised and pleased when I made the little speech at the welcome receptions I attended. I will always appreciate Ted and June's thoughtfulness and support in helping me prepare for my move to Japan. I still have a written copy of the speech and all the phrases they gave me to help me "make a good first impression".

My family and I send our condolences to the Aoki family at this sad time. Dr. Aoki will always be remembered fondly.

As a high school teacher of Social Studies at the LCI in Lethbridge during the early 1960s, Mr. Aoki brought his love of history and joy of learning to many of us. We will always honour him.

My sympathies to Ted's family. Also, my gratitude for supporting Ted in his teaching. His gift of inspiration is one I draw upon in my daily life.

Michele was one of my closest friends all through my growing up years and I have missed her deeply. I will remember her kind and gently spirit and the way her family readily welcomed me into their home both here in Edmonton and at the coast. Mr. Aoki's sense of humor and giggles as he entertained us is a memory I hold dear. Father and daughter are once again reunited. My deepest condolences to the Aoki family.

Many years ago as a child I studied ballet with Michele at the Muriel Taylor School of Dance. I still remember how lovely and kind Michele and her family were. I'm thinking Michele has waited a very long time to be reunited with her wonderful Dad. My condolences to all the family.
