TSUBOUCHI, Kiyoshi Thomas
In the presence of his family at Sunnybrook Hospital on Saturday October 22 at the age of 83. Beloved husband of the late Fumiko (Frances) née TAKAHASHI who passed away in March, 1997. He was a loving father to his children David (Elaine), Dan (Diane) and Lynne. Survived by his sisters Pat IOI, Nobu SMART (Buddy,) and Sets ODA (Paul,) and his brothers Kenji (Kay) and Eiji (Dorothy.) He will be deeply missed by all of his relatives, Friends, golfing and bowling partners. Kiyoshi was born in Vancouver on November 20, 1921, and raised in Duncan on Vancouver Island. He was the eldest son of Hyakuzo and Ume TSUBOUCHI. Kiyoshi, along with his sister Pat, left high school before graduating to work to support the family upon his father's illness. At the outbreak of war, he was sent to the Prisoner of War camp at Angler in Northern Ontario, where despite the difficult conditions, he used his time to better himself and complete his high school diploma by correspondence. After the war, he and his family moved to Thunder Bay (Fort William) where the family established themselves among a hard working community. Kiyoshi worked for logging companies to provide for the family and after his family was established, Kiyoshi moved to Toronto in 1948. He married Fumiko in 1951 residing in downtown Toronto, before moving to Agincourt in 1955, where he lived until his passing. Kiyoshi owned a successful dry cleaning business (Apex Cleaners) for 20 years before retiring. Kiyoshi loved sports, especially his beloved Toronto Maple Leafs, New York Yankees, and of course Tiger Woods, and was well known for his skill in a broad range of sports, in particular golf and bowling. Kiyoshi was a man of great determination, was an excellent provider who, along with Fumiko, sacrificed all for his family. He loved his family dearly and was determined to provide his children with the opportunity to gain industry educations. All three children graduated from university and established successful careers. David as a lawyer, then a senior cabinet minister in the Mike Harris Progressive Conservative government, and now a corporate lawyer with Fraser Milner Casgrain LLP Dan as an oil company executive, and now in the investment dealer business with GMP Securities. Lynne first with David in his law practice, then the venture capital business with Helix Investments, and now in the software business with Casero and Audience View. Visitation will be held Wednesday, October 26th from 7-9 p.m. and Thursday, October 27th from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at Chapel Ridge Funeral Home, 8911 Woodbine Avenue (3 lights north of Hwy 7), Markham (905 305 8508). Funeral services will be held at the Toronto Buddhist Church, 1011 Sheppard Avenue West, Toronto (416 534 4302) at 11 a.m. with general viewing and Oshoko starting at 10 a.m. Reverand Grant IKUTA officiating. As an expression of sympathy, in lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to The Toronto Buddhist Church New Temple Fund, in memory of Kiyoshi Tom Tsubouchi.
