We Remember

Higashi, Shizuka “Tickie”

May 12, 1920 — November 8, 2011

Born May 12, 1920 in Union Bay, B.C., passed away peacefully after a brief illness in Kelowna, B.C. November 8, 2011.  Pre-deceased by his loving wife Natsuko “Vickie” on July 2, 1998 in Grand Forks, B.C.  Survived by sister Pat, daughter Sue (Ross) McArthur of Kelowna, B.C., son Garry (Julie) Higashi of Chilliwack, B.C., grandchildren David (Lynn) McArthur, Mike (Rachel) and Travis Higashi, and great grandchildren Jill and Cate McArthur and several nieces and nephews.


Tickie was evacuated during the Second World War from the coast to Greenwood, B.C. where he remained until his passing.  He started out operating a family plumbing business in the area and then soon got into logging where he was an owner/operator of a logging truck for many years until his retirement in 1985.  He enjoyed a long happy healthy retirement doing the things he loved; hunting, fishing, tending his garden and looking after his family and friends.  He especially loved hunting the hills around Greenwood and going back to Vancouver Island every year to fish in the ocean with his close friends.  He will be remembered for his immense generosity.   He gave so much and will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved him.
