Lloyd Hiroya (Kino) Kinoshita, age 93, born May 18, 1919 in Seattle, Wash., died on July 21, 2012 in West Hills, Calif.
A singer, actor, devoted son and brother, and the best uncle ever.
Lloyd worked with the greats in Hollywood for more than 50 years with roles in, “Godzilla,” “Mortal Kombat,” and “Miss Congeniality 2,” well into his 80s. He appeared in some great TV from 1960 through 2004, including “McHale’s Navy,” “Hawaii 5-0,” “Star Trek,” “Happy Days,” “Remington Steele,” “Nancy Drew,” “Major Dad,” “In Living Color,” “NCIS,” and “CSI.” He was fortunate to make a living doing what he loved. He is preceded in death by his parents, Tadashi and Etsuko Kinoshita, and his brothers, Robert T, Kenny (George) and Roy Kinoshita. He is survived by sister, Kay Kinoshita Copeland; nephew, Robert Kinoshita; nieces, Lynne Copeland Hamp and Gwyne Copeland Taylor; and seven grand-nieces and nephews, Amanda, Miranda, Tadashi, Mathew, Barrett, Gregory, and Mariko. We love you Uncle Lloyd.
