Masaji Nishisaki

Oct 11, 1922 - Jan 18, 2018


Masaji “Mas” Nishisaki was born in Placerville, California on October 11, 1922 to Ennosuke and Aguri Nishisaki. He left this life on January 18, 2018.

Mas spent his early years on the farm in the Perkins area and attended schools in the Sacramento area. He was an excellent student at Kit Carson Middle School and graduated from Sacramento High School in 1940.

Mas and his family were interned in Jerome, Arkansas from 1942 until their release in 1945.

He worked until his retirement for the U.S. Postal Service and spent his later years in the pocket area of Sacramento. He took pride in both his appearance and that of his home. Though not widely traveled, Mas had visited his parents’ native country of Japan. He is survived by his brother, Joichi and numerous cousins in both the U.S. and Japan.
Joicihi Nishisaki and the Matsui family would like to thank the staff at Sunrise of Carmichael, the Home Instead staff and most especially his good friend Scott Kinderwater for providing Mas with an enriched life these past years. He will be greatly missed.

    Masaji, also known as Mas was a very kind and perfect sweetheart, always dressed to impress, always ready to give his best! In the last 5years of his life he made a very special friend who goes by the name of Scott, he entered his life at a time when things were changing for Mas. Scott became so close to him that I believe he was his bestfriend that he may of never had, he influenced his life in a major way always taking new heights to improve the quality of Mas’s life, always making him feel important and special even in the toughest times. There bond will always remain unbreakable even in eternity. Mas will be sadly missed by all who loved him including myself. Thank you Scott for making the best and rest of Mas’s years wonderful!! Rest Easy Mas~
