February 3, 1933 – November 9, 2018
It is with great sadness and loss that we announce the news of the passing of Frank Sakaki. Known best for his entrepreneurial spirit with the family business, North Kamloops Motors, Frank, a loving husband to Vi (predeceased) and father to two children; Judy Ahola (Rob), and Glenn Sakaki (Bev), peacefully passed away at Evergreen Baptist Campus Care. He was also the grandfather to Stephanie and Rebecca. Predeceased by sister, Mavis (Hiyako), Frank leaves behind four brothers, Terry, Norio, Eddy and Roy and two sisters, Leiko and Hiroko.
His love for cars began as a mechanic and inspired a lifelong career with Toyota Canada and Nissan Canada where he built the family business with his father and brothers to become one of Western Canada’s most successful family-owned dealerships. Always keen to share his business sensibilities, Frank was always there to mentor his friends, family and staff to their full potential. His love of gardening and golf were favourite pastimes throughout his retired years.
A private family Celebration of Life will be held in his honour in the New Year. For online condolences, please visit www.victorymemorialpark.com. In lieu of flowers, donations can be directed to Evergreen Baptist Campus of Care.
