Michael Yamamoto passed away peacefully on December 26, 2022. He was born on April 6, 1948 to Sumiko and Robert Yamamoto in San Francisco, California. He leaves behind his younger brother David, children Mindy (Brandon) and Stuart, and 3 granddaughters Elle, Harlow and Maile.

Michael – Mike, as he was known to most – was smart, charismatic and resourceful. He worked tirelessly to provide for a better life for his children, and in later years, enjoyed visiting them and his grandchildren in New York and Colorado, lunching with friends, and hanging out at the ’19th hole.’

A celebration of Mike’s life
will be scheduled in July 2023. Please email Mindy at
