Remembering Glen Tsuruta
December 10, 2019

For nearly two decades the Focus Cup Golf Club has been enjoying a quarterly gathering to play golf. Its annual tournament is held in Solvang every August, and this year 21 members participated. This year’s event was also a time of remembrance for their friend and member, Glen Tsuruta, who passed away from leukemia in July at the young age of 57. Glen, who lived in Garden Grove when he passed, was born in Torrance and attended North Torrance High School. During their post-tournament dinner celebration, Derrick Kawamoto, a financial planner with Cetera Advisor Networks in Torrance and a member of the Torrance Memorial Professional Advisory Council, offered to match any donations the group would make in memory of Glen. With some “rounding up” help from Glen’s siblings, Focus Cup Golf Club members gave $1,000! Derrick presented a $2,000 check to Torrance Memorial in support of the Hunt Cancer Center, which is scheduled to open in December.
