Mitch Hirota


March 11, 1956 – April 4, 2013

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden

passing of Mitch, who died suddenly at the age of 57 years.

In his early years Mitch enjoyed fly fishing, camping, hiking in the mountains and photography. He loved Jeeps which

allowed him to explore areas off the beaten path. Mitch

will always be remembered as lending a helping hand in

the technology field. He helped people of all ages and his gentle manner allowed others to learn from him. His career spanned many years and locations where he was able

to make deep friendships. He was highly regarded by

colleagues, and his ability to resolve technical issues helped those close to him. In his last few years, he

volunteered his time with school field trips and

Christmas concerts.

Thank you to the dedicated paramedics and all the

staff at the Mazankowski Heart Institute for their

compassionate care.
