October 26, 1942 - March 24, 2023
In loving memory ~
It is with much sadness we announce that Sam passed away at the age of 80 years.
Born in Lethbridge Alberta on October 26, 1942 to parents Jack and Hideko Yoshioka. His family moved to the West Coast in 1950 and resided in the Aldergrove area.
Survived by his loving wife Pat of 50 years, sons Jason, Chris (partner May), Tyler (wife Hong and grandchildren Mia and Ryu), and brother Stan (wife Lucy) and family.
He was affectionately called " PopPop" by his grandchildren.
Sam's most proud and successful accomplishments were the owner operator of the Cloverdale Flea Market (1977-2011) and Containers Plus (Barrel Business).
He had a great love for curling, fishing, hockey (Canucks), vacations to Hawaii and Las Vegas.
No funeral by request. In lieu of Koden and flowers, donations may be made to the Fraser Valley Buddhist Temple or charity of one's choice.
