Kazunori Aozasa
January 4, 1929 -- August 14, 2018
Resident of Los Altos
Kazunori (Kaz) Aozasa passed away on Tuesday, August 14, 2018. He was 89. Kaz is survived by his beloved wife of 61 years, Kimiye Aozasa. Also, his son and family, Walter, his wife Karen, and their children, Ken Nakamura and Cole Aozasa. His son, Wesley Aozasa, and his children, Michael, Margueritte, Morgan Aozasa. Also, Lisa Aozasa, wife of Wayne Aozasa, who passed away on December 3, 2017, and their children, Kendall and Carly Aozasa.
Kaz was born and grew up in Shimane, Japan. He immigrated to the United States in 1950 and settled in San Jose where he met and married his wife, Kimiye Oshiba in 1957. They moved their young family to Los Altos in 1963, where Kaz took an active role in raising his three sons, encouraging their education and coaching them in Little League. Kaz was passionate about sports, especially baseball, a life-long love he shared with his sons and grandchildren, who excelled in school and in their chosen sports of baseball, golf, and soccer.
Kaz was a graduate of San Jose State University and after graduation had a successful 40-year career in finance/administration with Japan Airlines. He retired in 1994.
Kaz was a strong, quiet, intelligent man who was devoted to his wife and family. In his later years, Kaz enjoyed trips to Reno to visit his youngest grandson at college and never missed spending time with friends at the semi annual San Jose Night in Reno as well. He enjoyed his weekly Yahtzee game with his friends, and continually stayed up to date on his favorite Japanese television programs and books series, as well as his grandchildren's athletics, whose games he often taped. He will be dearly missed.
Services will be held at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday 9/8, at the San Jose Buddhist Church Betsuin, 640 North Fifth St., San Jose, CA. 95112.
