Hi Shig..You were a pleasure to be around. When I married Diana Tokushige you accepted me into the fold. I enjoyed being around at the festival's. Your big smile always made my day. You were a blessing to all who knew you. The Quinn family will make a donation to Yu-Ai-Kai for you. RIP friend.

Dear Mary and Family,
Please accept our deepest condolences upon the passing of Shig. I have always admired Shig for his quick wit, big smile, and boundless energy at the Obon, Chidori Band events, and the Reno Bus Wine Trips. I was impressed with his talent at the tables in Reno where he would make friends with everybody at the table. We will miss him dearly. Our prayers and thoughts are with you all.
Love, Gene and Louise

Tokiwa Family, my thoughts, prayers and love are with you. Shig was a dear friend to my parents Charles and Jean Nakamura. Shig has known me since I was a baby. I can remember my parents going over to Shig & Mary's house to play cards. I would play with David while my parents played cards. When I would get sleepy, I would fall asleep on their couch. My youngest son Jesse got to roll newspapers with Shig. Shig would tell my son stories of when I was small. I will miss seeing Shig at Obon. The last few years, Shig and Mary would go to Panera Bread (down the street from their house) to enjoy coffee and dessert. We would always have them sit with us. I will miss those days.

Regina Hernandez (Nakamura) and family

Was so blessed to have the Tokiwas in my life as a young girl growing up on Rosemary Lane.  Shig was a warm, kind and very humorous man much like my own dad. Its a no wonder they got along so well. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this very difficult time

Dear members of the Tokiwa family I am so sorry to hear of Shig’s passing. I was so fortunate to have worked with him for many years on the Obon construction crew. I always enjoyed those times together. I will truly miss him. 
In Gassho, Ron Bungo
