Dear Tsuruda Family: I am so very sorry to hear about Dick's passing just now - October 14, 2019. I googled the name as I was wondering where the Kameda Family's hometown is in Japan. And, I remembered the Tsuruda Family came from that same village or area. My deepest condolences. I remember you all fondly and your kindess to my parents, Fumi and Shigeo Tanaka of Vernon, B.C.

He allowed 4 crazy teenagers, (one being his son), to take over the basement to live their passion of music. How Mr. and Mrs. Tsuruda put up with our creative noise, I'll never know. He helped build others dreams. There is a new Fisherman in Heaven.
