Matt Walsh, 1966 -- 2011


It is our sad duty to announce the passing of Matt Walsh our program chair.

Matt had been struggling with liver cancer this summer and passed away peacefully on October 6, 2011. He was 45.

At Matt's request there was not a funeral or wake in Osaka, instead friends and family met in Kyoto for a hike.

UPDATE: The plans for the memorial hike have been announced. Participants will meet at Hishiyama Sancho Koen Car Park 東山山頂公園駐車所 at 1 p.m tomorrow Saturday the 8th.

From there they hiked up to Shogunzaka and then came back down through Hishiyama Sancho Koen Car Park one more time before winding down the mountain through the forest.
