Moffet M. Ishikawa
Resident of San Jose, Ca
Passed away peacefully at home on March 15th, 2014 at the age of 95. Moffet was born and raised in San Jose, California. During World War II
, he was drafted into the US Army and proudly served his country in the Military Intelligence Service. He was awarded the Combat Infantryman Badge, Bronze Star
and most recently the Congressional Gold Medal. After the war he met his wife, Thelma Noguchi, and they had 58 special years together. When Thelma passed away about seven years ago Moffet began going to the Yu-Ai-Kai Senior Service Center for his weekday lunches. Here he met friends new and old as well as a wonderful, caring staff. We will always be grateful to them all. Moffet was a loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather and will be dearly missed.
