Stanley Masaru Kaneshiro
7/29/42 - 11/22/19
Passed away November 22, 2019 in his sleep after a year-long illness, he was 77 years old. He was born on July 29, 1942 in Honolulu, Hawaii to parents Senkichi and Kamiko Kaneshiro. A beloved brother, he is survived by sisters: Linda Wong, Annie Low and brothers: Gary and Clyde Kaneshiro. At the age of 10, the family relocated to New York City where he continued his formal schooling with the NYC public schools. The family relocated to a Briarcliff Manor, NY address in 1957. Most of Stanley's social life centered around the Millwood, NY community. He was employed by the Taconic State Highway Maintenance Dept. for a few years before enlisting in the US Army. While stationed in Germany Stanley enjoyed touring Europe. His electronic background with the US Army enabled him to find employment with Con Edison Electrical Company in Westchester County NY. He worked over 40 plus years with Con Edison as a high power tension lineman and enjoyed working outdoors. He cared for his aging parents until they relocated back to Hawaii. After retirement he moved from his Briarcliff Manor address to a house next door located in Ossining, NY. His favorite past time was fishing and making numerous trips to Hawaii and Okinawa to visit with friends and relatives. His Ossining home became the centerpiece for family gatherings and holiday celebrations where family members and friends would eat to their heart's content and talk story until the wee hours of the morning. He was a big fan of the New York Yankees and hardly ever missed any of their televised games.
