OUCHI, Eugene Masahiko
Eugene passed away peacefully in the arms of his family after a short but courageous battle with cancer at the age of 66 years.
Eugene was born in Vernon, BC and moved to Calgary to attend the Alberta College of Art. He enjoyed a very successful career as a fine artist and graphic designer, and eventually became a Design Instructor at the Alberta College of Art and Design. He is sadly missed by his wife Dorothy and his children Mieko (Kim), Jason and Kevin, by his brothers Lester (Diane), Ron and Conrad (Doreen), his sister Marie (Gus) and dear friends, family and colleagues across Canada.
Eugene was predeceased by his brothers Bob (Connie) and John, and by his parents Edward and Betty Ouchi.
