COMMUNITY MEMORIAL SERVICE FOR TATSUO NAKATA

SEATTLE- Councilmember David Della passed along the following message from Tatsuo Nakata’s friends and family:

Dear Friends,

Many of you have heard or read by now about the tragic death of our dear friend and a “strong Asian man,” community leader Tatsuo Nakata. Tatsuo’s death was untimely and unnecessary, and it will leave a void in all of our hearts and spirits for years to come.

David Della, Odette Polintan, Sharon Tomiko Santos, Velma Veloria and many, many others have tirelessly stayed by Tatsuo’s family’s side these past couple of days while the family said their final goodbye to our cherished friend. Now, to help our community say its final farewell, there will be a community memorial service for Tatsuo this Saturday. We hope you can join us in celebrating with joy & laughter the life that Tatsuo led with such passion, commitment, and sense of social justice and purpose. He wouldn’t want it any other way.

Please help us in forwarding this notice to as many of Tatsuo’s friends and colleagues as possible. Finally, a memorial fund is being established in Tatsuo’s honor. More details will follow shortly.

With deepest appreciation,
Tatsuo’s friends and family
