  2. To Jean, Shane, and Rhett

    My deepest condolences on the passing of Joe. I’ll remember him fondly as a Tyro leader, sportsman and genuine gentleman. Haven’t seen him in years, but have nothing but great memories of the times he mentored a bunch of bratty, misfit, church kids. Cheers to you Mr. Togawa.

  3. I am so sad and shocked to hear of Jo’s passing when I was just talking to him about a month ago.
    My sincere condolences and sympathy to you Jean and your families. It will take a trying time
    for days ahead, but I hope the fond memories you had with him will help you through the years.
    He was such a gentle man.

  4. The Togawa family,
    My deepest sympathies for your loss. Joe was such a kind, positive and upbeat person. He was always laughing and making people feel good. He gave me wonderful tips on my bowling and never diminished my skills, except when I wasn’t paying attention. He will be sorely missed.

  6. Dear Jean,
    My condolence goes out to you and your family in the passing of Joe. Although I hadn’t seen Joe in over 50 years, I always looked forward to seeing him again. The relationship between the Nishioka and the Togawa family goes back to pre-war years when we lived as neighbours on Cordova Street in Vancouver. When we came together again in Toronto, our family visited the Togawa family on Browning Avenue, and while there, he always had the time of day to speak to me even though there was an age difference. I’ll always remember him as a kind and generous person, and also he was an excellent hockey player in his younger days. R.I.P. Joe!
    Sincerely yours,
    Frank Nishioka

  7. To Jean and family – Our deepest sympathy to you and your family. Joe was truly one of the nicest people we got to know during our 10 pin bowling. We will miss our regular lunches we had every Tuesday at Wendy’s and Tim’s after bowling with Iso, but most of all we will miss his great sense of humour, something we will never forget.
