Funeral Notices


Peacefully passed away at age 89 years on July 16, 2018 at Kuakini Hospital, Honolulu. He was born in Wailuku, Maui, the oldest son of the late Bishop Mitsumyo Tottori and Aiko Fujitani Tottori.

He graduated from Iolani School (class of ’47), Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois (class of ’51) and Tulane University School of Medicine, New Orleans, Louisiana (class of ’55).

He practiced pediatrics for 43 years and was truly devoted to caring for his patients. Photography was his passion and he used his clinical slides to teach the medical residents at Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children.

He enjoyed many trips to Japan and his photographs captured beautiful scenery, interesting historic sites, temples, prehistoric digs, manhole covers, bamboo fences, and anything that caught his fancy.

He is survived by his loving wife of 52 years, Jane, 3 brothers, 5 sisters and many nieces and nephews.

Private services were held. No monetary gifts please.
