Peter Paul Yamamoto
January 14, 1955 – November 28, 2019

It is with great sadness that the family of Peter Paul Yamamoto announces his passing, on Thursday, November 28, 2019, at the age of 64 surrounded by family. He was born to the loving parents of Kenneth and Edith Yamamoto, on January 14, 1955, in Los Angeles California.

Peter grew up with his older brother in West Los Angeles graduating from University High School and receiving a Bachelors degree in Biology from UCLA, as well as a Masters degree in Finance from Cal State LA. He worked as an Audit Services Manager for the Southern California Gas Company/Sempra Energy for almost 39 years and just recently retired. Peter dedicated his life to raising and supporting his children. Though quiet and reserved he was always the jokester and his humor shone through his playful actions and selfless good nature. He took deep pride in his Japanese American culture and made it a point to educate his children and instill values on what that meant to him.

Peter will be lovingly remembered by his mother Edith, brother Mark, children Danielle, Trevor, and Jessica, stepchildren John Nizich, Michelle Olsen and her husband David, grandchildren Sophia, Elin, Marlee and Delaney Olsen, former wife and cherished friend Cheryl Shepherd, Aunt Barbara Taniguchi, as well as many cousins, nieces, nephews, lifelong friends and tortoises.

A service will be held on Saturday, December 21, 2019, at Mission Valley Free Methodist Church at 11:00am. Address: 1201 S. San Gabriel Blvd., San Gabriel, CA 91776. Lot parking is available.
