FRONT PORCH: This Father’s Day was Dave Yoshida Day in Nampa | Front … – Idaho Press
June 24, 2015 - storage organizer
This important-looking request is from a Nampa mayor’s office. Dave Yoshida’s grandchildren (Dave operated Dave’s Quick Lube for over 30 years, if that rings a bell) sent a minute to Bob Henry requesting he be named titular mayor for Father’s Day. Instead of that happening, Nampa distinguished (whether we knew it or not) Dave Yoshida Day on Father’s Day this year. This is a design of a commercial dogmatic a holiday.
It reads, in part:
“His family called Dave Yoshida a ‘hero of daily life.’ He is a chairman who unselfishly gives of his time, income and talents to advantage others.”
It goes on to list some of Dave’s good qualities, including that he uses his life for others, protects and watches over other people, sacrifices ungrudgingly for his family and anyone in need and many some-more things. In short, he possibly review this and blushed or review this and cried. Possibly both. You can only tell his family loves and respects him so much.
The finish reads:
“I, Robert L. Henry, Mayor of a City of Nampa, Idaho, do hereby broadcast Father’s Day, Sunday, Jun 21, 2015 to be Dave Yoshida Day in Nampa, and ask all adults of Nampa to respect fathers and father sum on this special day.
“IN WITNESS WHEREOF, we have hereunto set my palm and caused a Great Seal of a city of Nampa to be merged this 18th day of Jun in a year of a Lord dual thousand fifteen.” Then a mayor sealed it.
What a good gesticulate by both Dave’s family and a mayor. Thanks to all for their adore and support — to Dave for being this arrange of male for his family and village and to his grandchildren for wanting to respect him.
