Memorial service announced for Frank Kitamoto

A memorial service has been announced for Frank Kitamoto, a nationally respected Japanese American community leader and beloved member of the Bainbridge Island community.

Kitamoto died after heart and kidney complications on March 15. He was 79.

A Celebration of Life will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 6 at Woodward Middle School, 9125 Sportsman Club Road.

Guests can dress casually, and because Frank was an avid University of Washington Huskies football fan and loved his trips to Hawaii, people are invited to wear purple and gold or Hawaiian attire.
