Hiroshi Nishikubo Obituary
November 15, 1921 - September 23, 2017 Hiroshi Nishikubo, 95 years old, born on November 15, 1921 in Clarksburg, California, passed away peacefully on September 23, 2017. He was a member of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team - Company L. Their courageous exploits on the battlefields of Europe were legendary, and by the end of the war, the 442nd Regimental Combat Team ultimately distinguished itself as the most decorated unit in military history for its size and duration. He was a WWII and Korean War veteran. He has been awarded the Combat Infantry Badge, Distinguished Unit Citation, Purple Heart, Congressional Gold Medal and the French Legion of Honor. He was a docent for the Go For Broke Monument for more than 10 years. He is survived by his wife, Betty, brother, son, daughters, nieces, nephews and grandchildren. His family will miss his steady presence, his humor and his generous, loving heart. He will be remembered for his love of golf, skin diving, ice cream, staying current with the news and the status of his beloved L.A. Dodgers. As skin diving was one of his passions, his ashes will be scattered into the Pacific Ocean. He did not wish to have a memorial service. If you wish to make a donation, they can be made in his name to the Go for Broke National Educational Foundation: www.goforbroke.org.
