Remembering Glen Tsuruta
Members of the Focus Cup Golf Club honor their friend and golf buddy Glen
Tsuruta by providing a generous donation in his honor.
For nearly two decades the Focus Cup Golf Club has been enjoying a quarterly
gathering to play golf. Its annual tournament is held in Solvang every
August, and this year 21 members participated. This year’s event
was also a time of remembrance for their friend and member, Glen Tsuruta,
who passed away from leukemia in July at the young age of 57. Glen, who
lived in Garden Grove when he passed, was born in Torrance and attended
North Torrance High School. During their post-tournament dinner celebration,
Derrick Kawamoto, a financial planner with Cetera Advisor Networks in
Torrance and a member of the Torrance Memorial Professional Advisory Council,
offered to match any donations the group would make in memory of Glen.
With some “rounding up” help from Glen’s siblings, Focus
Cup Golf Club members gave $1,000! Derrick presented a $2,000 check to
Torrance Memorial in support of the Hunt Cancer Center, which is scheduled
to open in December.
