Takeo Miyaguchi, 87, was born on April 11, 1933, the second of twin boys born to Fumiko OI and Sunao Miyaguchi. He grew up on the shores of the West Loch of Pearl Harbor, close enough to hear the fish jumping when he woke up in the morning. Takeo was an active boy, fishing, crabbing and swimming in the harbor as
well as climbing the coconut trees and generally getting into trouble. From the point of view of a pre-teen Takeo, World War II was often an exciting and adventurous time. After high school Takeo and his brother Matsuo enrolled in the Coast Guard during the Korean War and afterward got his degree from Oregon
State University on the GI Bill. He met his future wife, Jane Idemoto in California and eventually they had 3 children. After teaching high school biology in California for 13 years, the family came home to Maui, where he was a successful farmer.

Takeo will be remembered for his sense of humor, his fishing and skin-diving expertise, and his community-mindedness. After retiring, Takeo served others in his retirement community and also worked to protect local
fisheries. He was predeceased by his parents and his siblings Tsuruko, Yaeko and George Miyaguchi. He is survived by his brother Matsuo, his children Gayle Miyaguchi, Ron Miyaguchi and Lisa (Mike) McCraney,
his grandchildren Kila (Ali) and Bronson Baker, and Greyson and Lena Miyaguchi, and his great-grandchildren Kaia and Kukilakila Baker. The Miyaguchi family would like to express their particular appreciation to
Hospice Maui and especially Janelle Correa for her gentle and competent care.

Private services will be held at Ballard Family Mortuary Kahului. A private burial will follow at the Maui Veteran's Cemetery in Makawao.
