Osamu “Sam” Kano, 76, passed away peacefully on March 13, 2013 at home in his sleep, after a long, courageous battle with prostate cancer. Born in Japan, and a 36 year resident of Los Altos, he is survived by his wife Yumiko, children, Jim and Akiko and grandchildren, Schuyler and Sean. He was a devoted and loving husband, father and grandfather who loved to play golf and go to Hawaii in his retirement, after a very successful career in the semiconductor industry. He traveled the world and lived a full and rewarding life and touched many lives.

A memorial service/celebration of his life, will be held next month and Memorial donations may be made to the Prostate Cancer Foundation or The American Cancer Society in his name.
