Elder TSUBOUCHI dies in hospital after hit and run
By Carolyn ABRAHAM, Monday, October 24, 2005, Page A12
To his family members, Thomas TSUBOUCHI was a robust example of good health.
At 83, the father of former Ontario cabinet minister David TSUBOUCHI could often be found playing golf or tossing ten pins at the bowling alley. No one expected his life to end soon.
But at 8: 18 Friday morning, a vehicle barrelled through a marked crosswalk on Huntingwood Drive in Scarborough and struck Mr. TSUBOUCHI as he strolled to the corner store to buy a newspaper. The vehicle fled the scene and left Mr. TSUBOUCHI with massive internal injuries. He died at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre Saturday afternoon.
"It's really too bad it had to end this way," Mr. TSUBOUCHI's nephew Brian TSUBOUCHI lamented yesterday. "He was an awesome man."
Mr. TSUBOUCHI's youngest brother, 67-year-old Eiji, expressed similar regret: "It's such a shame to be 83, and in such good health, and to go like that."
Eiji TSUBOUCHI, who lives in Thunder Bay, said his brother was born on Vancouver Island, the second of six children, and worked hard all his life to raise a good family.
As a Japanese Canadian, Thomas TSUBOUCHI was forced from his home during the Second World War and into a barbed-wire internment camp in Northern Ontario at age 20.
Brian TSUBOUCHI said he was always struck that his uncle "never seemed to hold his internment against anyone."
Eiji TSUBOUCHI said their mother used to say that she "was always thankful to be a Canadian" in spite of the internment, and that "it made us try even harder to make a better life."
After the war, Thomas TSUBOUCHI landed his first job, chopping wood in a bush camp near Thunder Bay. He later took a dry-cleaning apprenticeship course and moved to Toronto, where he married Eiji's kindergarten teacher.
Eiji TSUBOUCHI said his brother worked behind the counter at two dry-cleaning stores until he had saved enough money to open his own. Along the way, he said, Thomas and his wife -- who died several years ago -- raised three successful children: Danny, who earned his M.B.A. and a hockey scholarship at St. Louis University Lynn, an office manager; and lawyer David, a former Conservative member of provincial parliament and Ontario solicitor-general under Mike HARRIS.
Eiji TSUBOUCHI described his brother as a man of few words; a tough disciplinarian, but one with a very giving spirit.
"My son Brian went to a touch football match in Toronto once and when Thomas shook his hand, he slipped $50 in to it," Eiji TSUBOUCHI said. "He was a very generous man."
Toronto police are reviewing a surveillance video that may yield clues about the hit-and-run driver. Descriptions suggest the vehicle was medium-sized and silver, and police are asking anyone with further information to call the traffic services division at 416-808-1900.

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.

83-year-old hit-and-run victim dies
Dad of ex-Tory minister killed on crosswalk
'Sad time' for family of David TSUBOUCHI
By Paul CHOI, Staff Reporter
David TSUBOUCHI says he's not angered with the way his 83-year-old father died.
The victim of a hit-and-run Friday morning, Thomas TSUBOUCHI suffered massive internal injuries to the head and torso after a car hit him on a marked crosswalk near Huntingwood Dr. and Brimley Rd. TSUBOUCHI succumbed to his injuries in the presence of grieving relatives at Sunnybrook hospital about 4 p.m. yesterday.
David TSUBOUCHI, Ontario's former solicitor-general and a former provincial Conservative cabinet minister, says his family is not bitter, just saddened by the loss.
"We're not people who get angry," he said. "We don't go out and say, 'We need to have vengeance.' But it's a pretty sad time for all of us right now."
There had been a glimmer of hope Saturday for the family when doctors said the elder TSUBOUCHI's condition appeared to stabilize after surgery, even though he remained in a coma.
But later, doctors said TSUBOUCHI's condition worsened and his internal systems appeared to be shutting down.
"It's not for (lack) of trying. These are the best doctors for trauma in this country. And I know for a fact they've done everything they could for my father," David TSUBOUCHI said. "But no matter how much you do expect it, you don't expect it."
Yesterday, police continued to urge the driver of the vehicle to turn himself in.
"Basically, what we've been saying all along to the driver is to look for a lawyer and surrender (yourself)," said Sgt. Edmund WONG of traffic services.
Investigators are looking at surveillance footage that shows a car hitting a pedestrian. Police are looking for a light-coloured vehicle that may have a damaged hood and windshield.
Meanwhile, TSUBOUCHI said he is disturbed by the number of hit-and-runs taking place on Toronto's streets. He said drivers should be taking more responsibility for their actions.
On Thursday, an 87-year-old woman was struck and killed while she crossed Wilson Ave. near Bathurst St. On Friday, an unidentified pedestrian suffered serious injuries after being hit by a car at Scarlett Rd. near Kingdom St. The driver fled the scene and the pedestrian has since fallen into a coma.
"There's too much of this going on," TSUBOUCHI said. "The real tragedy in this is that someone hits an elderly man and drags him for 70 or 90 feet and leaves him to die on the street. That's the crime."
Saddened as he was by his father's death, TSUBOUCHI said he and his family would try to move on and remember the legacy his dad left behind.
A Japanese immigrant, the senior TSUBOUCHI came to Canada and worked two jobs to support his family, even in the face of immense prejudice, TSUBOUCHI said.
