HIRO HASHIMOTO Peacefully, on Wednesday, November 22, 2000, with his beloved wife Tosh and dear daughters, Gaia, Pam and Jennifer at his side. Also left to treasure memories of Hiro are sisters, Emi (Okimura) and Nobby; brother Tad; sisters-in-law, Faye (Bruce) and Chris (Ben) brother-in-law Saburo (Toshie) nieces; nephews and many friends. Hiro was predeceased by his father Ruiichi and mother Sato; brothers, Bruce and Ben and sister Toshie. He was born on July 25, 1923 in Mission, B.C., where he was raised and educated. He helped to work on the family strawberry farm. He moved to Manitoba with his family in 1942, first to Arnaud and then to Winnipeg in 1946. In 1950, he married Tosh Sugimoto and they celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on October 7, 2000. Hiro managed his own business, Hashimoto Construction Ltd., and was a member of the Winnipeg House Builders Association. For more than forty years he designed and built many beautiful custom-built homes in areas such as Tuxedo, Southdale, Charleswood, Fort Garry, Fort Richmond and beyond city limits. He showcased his distinctive homes in the annual "Parade of Homes." After retiring in 1987, Hiro poured his creative energies into other interests. His passions were golfing and gardening. During the summer months he spent many happy hours tending his beautiful flower gardens and golfing several times a week. During the winter, he enjoyed driving south to California to play even more golf! Special thanks to the staff in the I.C.U. and Fourth Floor of the Victoria General Hospital for their compassionate care. Following cremation, a memorial service and a celebration of life will be held at the Thomson Funeral Chapels, 669 Broadway, on Monday, November 27, at 1:30 p.m. with the Rev. Dr. Gordon Taylor officiating. In lieu of flowers or koden, donations may be made to the Manitoba Lung Association (629 McDermot Ave., Winnipeg, R3A 1P6) or to a charity of ones choice.
