Bill Sosa Sensei Passes Away
Posted 6/11/2002 10:18am [from Jun Akiyama]

I have just received word that Bill Sosa sensei (6th dan, International Aikido Association), passed away on Sunday, June 9th, 2002, at approximately 11:40am (CST). I don't have any more details at this time, but I will post when I get them. My condolences to his family, friends, and loved ones. Further information: I have received word that Sosa sensei passed away from pancreatic cancer after only three months of illness. Memorial and funeral services will be held tonight and tomorrow morning, June 11th and 12th. For details, please contact Randy Boniface at (213) 638-7469.
