Yukio Yoshida Obituary

Don Yukio Yoshida of Seattle passed away from natural causes on Aug. 2. He was 89.

Don was born in Seattle to Keisuke and Ineko Yoshida in 1933.  During the war, the family was interned in the Heart Mountain Relocation Center in Wyoming.  

When the family returned to Seattle, Don graduated from Garfield High School in 1951 and joined the U.S. Army. He was stationed in Japan when he met his future wife. 

Don worked for the United States Post Office, rising to Quality Control Manager. Upon his retirement, he worked part-time as a news assistant for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.

Don enjoyed photography, fishing, hunting for Japanese mushrooms, playing poker, recreational softball and volleyball -- where his 6-foot height was a weapon -- and teaching basic computer skills to fellow retirees.

Don is survived by Fuyo, his wife of 67 years, daughters Brenda and Noreen, son Victor, grandson, granddaughter and great granddaughter, brother Roland (Vicky) and sisters Elaine and Pauline.

He was preceded in death by his parents, brother Richard and his wife Akemi.


At his request, no services will be held.  


Remembrance may be made to the Nisei Vet Foundation, Densho or a charity of your choice.
