Statement of U.S. Attorney Jenny A. Durkan
on the Passing of Kip Tokuda

July 19, 2013

“With the passing of Kip Tokuda, the Western District of Washington has lost a beloved community leader, an undaunted advocate for children, and a devoted husband, father and friend.   His legacy lives in the causes he advanced, the lives he bettered, and the multitude he mentored.  Kip never stopped serving.  Most recently, he was a valued member of the Community Police Commission, the public’s voice in police reform efforts in Seattle.  He brought to that work, as he did to everything he touched, a true moral compass and genuine hope for the future.  His voice was strong and respected and, as always, he spoke for the disadvantaged.  We miss him.”

A public memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, July 21st, at Kane Hall on the campus of the University of Washington.
