Ralph Osada

March 11, 1928 — April 30, 2014

Ralph Osada, 86, of Fairfield, Calif., passed away peacefully, April 30, 2014,  at NorthBay Medical Center in Fairfield, Calif.

Ralph was born in Suisun City, Calif., on March 11, 1928, the sixth child of Kuniye and Takashi. Ralph attended Crystal Elementary School, completing the eighth grade in 1942. Ralph, along with his parents, brothers and sisters, was detained at the Gila Internment Camp, at Rivers, Ariz., from May 1942 to August 1945. During the internment, Ralph attended Butte High School. Ralph and his family returned to Suisun Valley after internment, and he graduated from Armijo High School in 1946.

Ralph enlisted in the United States Army in October 1946 and served in Hawaii and Japan as an interpreter. Ralph received an honorable discharge in July 1949 and returned to California.

While stationed in Japan, Ralph met his future wife, Mitsuko. They were married Nov. 26, 1950, and lived in Los Angeles for five years. Ralph moved his family to the Suisun Valley area in 1956. He was a farmer until beginning employment at Mare Island, where he later retired from.

Throughout elementary and high school, Ralph was an avid baseball and basketball player, winning school awards in these sports. Later in life, Ralph joined the Nisei Club of Suisun Valley and participated in their softball and bowling teams. Ralph loved fishing and diving for abalone. His television was always tuned to baseball, basketball and football games, even golf and “Judge Judy.” Ralph was a lifetime member of the VFW Nisei Post 8985 in Sacramento and the Suisun Valley Nisei Club.

Ralph took great pride in his grandchildren, Ryan Camp, Amanda Watts (Aaron) and Zachary Osada; and great-granddaughter, Abigail Watts.

Ralph is survived by his wife of 63 years, Mitsuko of Fairfield; children, James (Karen), Janet (Russ), Richard (Diane); sisters, Yoshiko Sawasaki of Monterey Park and Ida Kajikawa of Pleasanton; and brother, William (Louise) Osada of San Francisco.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Takashi and Kuniye Osada; brother, Joseph Osada; sisters, Helen Toyohara and Toshiko Uchishiba.
