Obituary Condolences

Ejigu, Kitaw
Suffered a stroke the night of Jan. 8, and died early Jan. 12. Born in Ethiopia in 1948 Kitaw migrated to America in 1973 via Japan as a student. Later working for NASA's jet propulsion laboratory, Lorrel, Rockwell, and Boeing as a scientist and engineer defined Kitaw's ambition to advance humanity's quest to reach beyond this earth. In the past few years Kitaw chaired a political renewal organization for Ethiopia. Also he was the will and energy behind his business TransTech International, a corporation with a vision to modernize the developing world. Kitaw is survived by his wife Stella, his children Benjamin, Sarah Abigail, and Jared and every individual he knew or knew of him throughout his life. There is a memorial service for Kitaw at Lake Avenue Church in Pasadena, California at 11:00 a.m. followed by his burial at Forest Lawn Cemetery, Covina Hills at 3:00 p.m. tomorrow, January 18, 2006.
