Joe Isamu Yamamoto Obituary
Joe Isamu Yamamoto

Joe Isamu Yamamoto born April 1, 1934 to Masutaro and Sekiyo Yamamoto. On August 31, 2017 Joe passed away peacefully in his sleep with his family by his side.

Joe was married to Lillian for 56 years until her passing in 2013; he now joins her and granddaughter Nicole Taylor.

Joe had a passion for fishing that was passed down to his family. Yearly fishing trips to Columbia River were enjoyed with both family and friends. That tradition still lives strong in his grandchildren. His hand-made fishing jigs always produced lots of action. His family knew he would gladly provide them with the day's winning jig or any other fishing supplies as he always had extras.

Joe is survived by his daughters Linda (Robert) Billedo, Sharon (John) Taylor, Diane (Wilbur) Lee and son Bill (Marilyn) Yamamoto. Grandchildren Jeffery, Danielle, Janine, Cory, Pamela, Marissa, Carly, Brent, Samuel and great grandchildren Darius and Lillian.

A celebration of Joe's life
