Shonie Aki died on Monday, December 2, of unknown causes; he was 76 years old. The news was surprising since he had put in a full day playing table tennis at the Club on Sunday, doing quite well. Funeral services have not been announced at this time.
Shonie was a very popular, important member of the Bay Area table tennis community for over 50 years as well as a top level player in his prime. He was instrumental in resuscitating the Berkeley Table Tennis Club and also served on many USATT committees.
CTTC will send a sympathy card to his surviving family. It will be available at the Club for signing through Tuesday, December 10.
