Celeblrating a coach's legacy

-A +A

A Celebration of Life for Michael Takayama is set for July 9 at Adventure Church, 6401 Stanford Ranch Road in Roseville. A time has yet to be determined.

Takayama, Del Oro’s longtime girls’ basketball coach, died unexpectedly last week at the age of 56 from a heart attack.

A private funeral (due to space limitations) for family and friends is scheduled for July 8 at the Placer Buddhist Church at 11 a.m. with a reception to follow.

The family has requested donations in memory of Takayama go to the Michael “Tako” Takayama Memorial Scholarship Fund. Checks can be made out to Del Oro High School, 3301 Taylor Road, Loomis CA, 95650.
