Jim Satoru Kawakami

May 1, 1925 – Sept. 15, 2017 

Jim Kawakami passed away peacefully September 15, 2017 at the age of 92 years.

He will be honored and missed by his daughter Jeanie (Craig) Cloutier of Vancouver, BC. He was sadly predeceased by his wife Junko Kawakami in 2012.

Jim was a devoted father, husband and hardworking farmer… who with his wife June, poured his heart and soul into his orchard for over 50 years.
