Shozo Suzuki and Masako Suzuki Served in Sapporo Mission as the president from 1976 to 1979. He has 9 children and the youngest son, Yoshio is going to be married in the temple soon.
He has about 40 grandchildren. They are all doing well. Last April, he and sister Suzuki went to Salt Lake City for General Conference and on their way back to Japan, they dropped by and stayed with us a couple of days. (I live in a city called Rancho Palos Verdes, which is north of Long Beach, CA. It is about 35 to
40 minutes from Los Angeles Airport.)
