Asa Koyama, 85, passed away peacefully at his home, surrounded by family on Wednesday, March 24th. Asa, known to friends and relatives as Ace, worked for more than 70 years as a grape farmer, and knew how to fix almost anything. He was kind, loyal and managed to have a great sense of humor and understanding of the world and people, despite having experienced a lifetime fraught with hardship and health problems. He was loved dearly by many and was always there for those when they needed him.
Asa is survived by his wife of 54 years, Shigeko; along with his four daughters, Julie Koyama, Jennifer Sant, Candace Sadorra and Karin Coleman; and his 9 grandchildren.
There will be a memorial service on Wednesday, April 7th at 1:00 pm, at Vineyard chapel at Cherokee Memorial Park, 14165 N. Beckman are, Lodi, CA 95240.
