 So sad to hear of this passing.  Mr. Ikeda was one of my favorite teachers at ZAHS.  Have so many fond memories of him.

The image of Ikeda-sensei was always as a gentle and kind soul.  His smile was genuine and from the soul.  He was also a very patient teacher as he consistently offered opportunities to learn the culture and language.  Teaching Japanese to kids who thought they already knew it as they spoke it and lived in the country couldn't have been anything less than frustrating.  Yet he took it all in stride with the grace, honor and zen-like compassion that represented his spirit.  We remember you, we appreciate you, we honor you and thank you for your dedication to us, your students.  Duke '77
