Mikito Fujii 1933-2021
Mikito (Miki) Fujii was born in Florin, California, and moved to Detroit, Michigan, as a young boy after having been interned in a World War II relocation camp. Thirty-five years later, he returned to California to live in Bellflower, before moving to Leisure World in 2013.
As a resident of Mutual 4, Miki was a member the Golf Cart Club, the Coin Club and the Nikkei Club. He also farmed a community garden spot.
He leaves behind Patricia, his wife of 65 years; daughter Keri; son Eric (Cheryl); and grandsons Jared and Duncan.
Miki’s drafting and design career was in the automotive, defense and aerospace industries. He held several design patents for his work at the Fruehauf Corporation in Michigan and later worked at Douglas Aircraft in Long Beach.
Miki lived a full life. A lifelong tinkerer, he designed and built his home in Bellflower. He enjoyed working on cars and designing and crafting creative home repairs. He was a food enthusiast who enjoyed eating as well as cooking. Any time someone needed help, Miki was the first one to show up and the last one to leave. He will be missed greatly by his extended family in Michigan and California.
