TSUTSUMI, Shin

1941 – Mount Lehman, BC
2013 – Calgary, AB

Shin, beloved husband of Carol Tsutsumi of Calgary, AB, passed away on December 2, 2013 at the age of 72 years.

Shin was a professional engineer throughout most of his working life. He enjoyed many holidays at his cabin, close to where he grew up. He spent years in a poker club and more recently two bowling leagues. Shin was a formidable crib player and skilled fisherman. The fish in the Bow River can breathe a sigh of relief today, as this avid fisherman has moved on to other fishing grounds.

Shin is survived by his beloved wife, Carol; his three daughters and sons-in-law, Lynn and Jarrod, Michelle and Tristan, and Catherine and Scott; and his granddaughter, Elle. He was happily anticipating the birth of a second grandchild. He is also survived by his three sisters and one brother; Akiko, Satoe, Emiko and Takeshi.

Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S, Chapel of the Bells (2720 Centre Street North) on Friday, December 6, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Shin Tsutsumi, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Chapel of the Bells, 2720 CENTRE STREET NORTH, Telephone: 403-276-2296.

    Shin was an amazing man, so kind and gentle, always a smile on his face. My Dad (Eric McDougall) and Shin were the greatest of friends and fabulous fishing buddies. Shin knew that a poor day fishing was better than a good day at work. I am certain he could tell the odd “fishing fable”, he may have even fished according to the solnar table. May the fond memories we all have keep in him close. Hugs to all of you! He will be missed by all who knew him. Thanks for sharing him with us!

    Any man who could have such wonderful daughters is a good man indeed. Thinking of your family and how much Cathy in particular meant to me when she was in grade nine. I will not forget her kindnesses and know she learned that from her parents. I feel badly for your loss. Peggy

    Carol and Family,
    Sorry to hear about Shin, Rod Phipps called to let us know. It is always difficult at times like this, I don’t know if you knew but we lost Leah over 4 years ago and it really hurts when you loose a child also. Shin was such a good guy to work for and became more than a boss with me. Remember when you and Iva were expecting at the same time? We hope you keep strong and you have your daughters to be close with you for support. Rest in Peace Shin.
    Iva & Ken
