Obituary Condolences

George Ukito Yamaguma
Jan. 30. 1916 - Oct. 14. 2012
Resident of Gilroy
Born in Alviso, CA., our father passed away peacefully at his home in Gilroy, CA., at the age of 96. He is survived by his loving wife, Sueyo, sons Eugene (Kathleen), Tim (Janie), and daughter Darlene (Scot). There are six grandchildren and two great grandchildren. A retired barber and former manager of the Santa Clara Valley Water District Coffee Shop in San Jose, he enjoyed a long career, retiring at age 77. To his family and friends, our father led by example. He taught us to strive and persevere, surpass roadblocks, and to never forget those around you. He will be dearly missed. A private memorial service was held at the Oak Hill Memorial Park on Oct. 27, 2012. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the San Jose Buddhist Church.
