Oyama: 'He Was a Hero and Example to Me and Many Others'

Posted By on Fri, Mar 22, 2013 at 12:39 PM

Hey, do yourself a favor and head over to Rum, Romanism and Rebellion blog and read a sweet and true post on the sad passing of Hank Oyama:

He always remained a humble, very principled man who was always available to dispense wisdom, encouragement, or a joke. In my own career in politics, I was always thankful for his support during difficult times (we shared a taste in guayabera shirts), and I know that I am not alone in this sentiment. He was a hero and example to me and many others.
