Obituary

John Stephen Haruo Izumi was born on October 19, 1957 in Honolulu, Hawaii. He was called to heaven on February 08, 2020 at the age of 62 and was surrounded by family in his last moments.

John was one of four children born to Michael & Nancy Izumi. He grew up in Kailua with siblings Marian (Marty), David, and Mark, and is an alumni of Kailua High School. In 1976 he enlisted in the Air Force and served six years as a heavy equipment mechanic. In the Air Force, John served in the Vietnam War and practiced the arts of hula and slack key guitar as a member of the Hawaiian Club. After discharge from the Air Force, he elected to serve two more years in the Army Reserves.

John was a jack-of-all-trades and he had several different jobs that utilized his talents of dexterity and creativity, including the creation of his own contracting company entitled Creative Technologies. For a short time, he also worked as a ramp agent for Mid-Pacific airlines where he met his wife, Cathy, who was working as a flight attendant. John and Cathy married on January 25, 1987, and he played a large supporting role in Cathy’s dance studio as the production manager and was a significant father-figure to many of the dancers.

John was also a faithful Christian with a very big heart. He was an active member of Hope Chapel, New Hope and the Chinatown Ministry (PS150). He regularly volunteered his time and energy to help feed the many homeless and would offer companionship and comfort as he helped to spread the word of god to those in need.

Above all, John was a beloved son, brother, husband, father, and grandfather. He was passionate, talented, strong, and a true family man. He left behind a remarkable legacy of eight children and twelve grandchildren whom he was so incredibly proud of. John has impacted many lives in his time on earth and he will be greatly missed by all.
