Tsutae Sato died at Vancouver, aged 92. He arrived in Canada in 1917 to teach at the "Nippon Kokumin Gakko" (Japanese National School). Sato and his wife, Hanako (also a teacher), were leaders in the Japanese community in Vancouver. Evicted from their home like other Japanese-Canadians in 1941, the Satos lived on a farm in Alberta for 10 years. In 1978, Tsutae was awarded the Order of Canada. The library at the Vancouver Japanese Language School & Japanese Hall is named in the couple’s honour.
