Obituary

Mikio Akagi of Lihue,  died on May 24, 2022 at age 89.  Mikio grew up in Kaumakani and graduated from Waimea High School.  He served in the U.S. Army 7th Infantry Division in Korea during the Korean War.  After his military service, he moved to Chicago and then to Champaign/Urbana where he earned a degree in architectural engineering from the University of Illinois.  He returned to Chicago to pursue his career and it was there that he met his beloved wife Connie.  He was employed by the Chicago based Harza Engineering Company and worked on projects not only in Chicago, but also on projects in Venezuela and Paraguay.

Mikio had fond memories of the old plantation days.  He was an avid fisherman who spent many happy days fishing the beaches fronting the Olokele Sugar Plantation and the Salt Pond area.  He and Connie loved visiting family in Kauai. He returned to live in Kauai in 2016.  Upon his return he enjoyed casting his fishing line along the shores from Anini to Salt Pond. 

Mikio was preceded in death by his wife Connie, parents Takeru and Toshiko Akagi, and brother Fumio Akagi. 

He is survived by his brothers Shigeru (Sue) Akagi of Seattle, WA; Tomoji (Betty) Akagi of Madison, WI; and Rikio (Betty) Akagi of Montebello, CA; niece Cynthia Akagi of Houston, TX; nephew Curtis Akagi of Montebello, CA; and cousins Sue Miyahara of Honolulu; Joyce Nagata of Kilauea; Alvin (Mary) Akagi of Plymouth, MI; and Pam Watanabe of Wailua.

A private memorial service will be held at a later date.  The family graciously requests that no koden be given.
