From Karl Kelsey on June 30th, 2022
When David was diagnosed with a liposarcoma he sought care in many spots - one being Boston.  I knew the surgeon that he was considering using to do a second surgery and so I invited him to stay with us as he connected and got worked up.  Of course, it was truly weird, but I always really like David and we had a great time.  The night before he was to get surgerized, we stayed up drinking single malt and he decided to opt for going to Sloan Kettering and chemotx.  A smart choice in my mind, but all his, in any case. 

David was all in - I was honored to spend some quality time with him when I hope it mattered.  He got a lot out of life and also did give back.

My kids thought he was very cool.

Douglas was a resident of Soquel, California.

From the Santa Cruz Sentinel
Aptos man ID”d in fatal bike crash

Douglas Barton was identified Tuesday as the 59-year-old Aptos bicyclist killed in a crash on Cathedral Drive.

Barton collided with a 1998 Toyota Tacoma about 8:50 a.m. Nov. 14 on Cathedral Drive north of Burns Avenue, said California Highway Patrol officer Brad Sadek.

Barton was taken by ambulance to Dominican Hospital where he later died, Sadek said.

The crash report was not complete on Tuesday and the cause of the wreck has not been determined, authorities said.

Two other drivers saw the crash and have helped officers in their investigation, according to the CHP.

The pickup driver, a 40-year-old Santa Cruz man, was driving slowly when Barton collided with the front of the vehicle, Sadek said.

Married Wendy Chatfield June 20, 1982.

From Martha Morris on August 7th, 2022
Doug, who had changed his name to Chayim later in his life, was my first true love from the age of 13-18. I knew at that young age he had mind focused on his inner world. Along with lots of kissing, dancing, canoeing and hours and hours on the phone we read books on enlightenment and meditation together.He was the youngest to get a black belt in judo in the state. He was on the diving team and if it wasn't for his nemesis Pete Zumberg he would have finished first at state diving tournaments. We learned so much together. It was Chayim who when we were graduating from high school brought up that we should get married or go our separate ways for a while and explore. So we chose exploring. He went to Aspen and became a ski "bum." Still the most fluid and beautiful skier many had ever seen. I went to visit him in Aspen about 6 months later and he had already met Wendy, later changed to Shamaya. They were destined to be together. I WAS NEVER JEALOUS. To this day Shamaya and I are best friends and do not let a day go by without talking. Chayim died days before their son was to be married. He had bought a new bike and true to Chayims philosophy of life had faith and trusted that all is meant for a reason. He also had complete faith in his athletic body and quick reactions. No one knows for sure what happened that day as he was flying down the one way forest road going to work from home. His new bike or helmet didn't have a scratch on it. He was brought to the hospital and was transfused with all the blood they had while his son was on a plane flying from to New York to try and get to him. His son sang every song they used to sing together. Every poem they wrote together. Shamaya was a labor and delivery nurse at that hospital and happened to be working when she saw her husband brought in by ambulance. Thanks for indulging me. Chayim was a very special being. Not just because I loved him. As I grow older I realize what an extremely blessed person I am to have been loved and able to love an extraordinary person.
 
From Daniel SLOAN on August 1st, 2022
Doug held a 3rd kyu (brown belt) when he introduced me to the sport of Judo.  Even then, one could experience his dedication to excellence.  He said, "If you step into this throw 10,000 times, you can complete it fairly well.  Then take 10,000 step-ins on your off-side."
The OBIT published elsewhere on this website tells us how he died in a tragic bicycle accident, while the FPMT Mandala gives us an idea of how he lived ...

Chayim Douglas Barton, 59, died in
Aptos, California, United States,
November 14, 2013, after a bicycle
accident

By Yakov A. Barton

Chayim was a psychologist who traveled a

vibrant and healing spiritual journey. He

drew from Jewish, Tibetan Buddhist and

Native American traditions and had a

transformative effect on his family, friends

and clients.

Chayim graduated from the Univer-

sity of California, Santa Cruz in 1982 with

a double major in psychology and religious

studies. He was introduced to Tibetan

Buddhism in the spring quarter of 1978.

He enrolled in a course led by Lama Yeshe.

By the end of the quarter, Chayim was so

impressed with the teachings of Lama Yeshe that he continued to study Tibetan

Buddhism and practiced his vows until the

end of his life.

In 1980 he embarked on a nine-

month pilgrimage and field study that lead

him around the world. Most of his journey

was spent in Nepal and India. His three-

month stay in Nepal included a lam-rim

course at Kopan Monastery, teaching the

young monks English and yoga and

trekking along the Jomsom Trail in the

Himalayas. In Dharamsala, he stayed at the

Tushita Meditation Centre. He stood in a

long line of hundreds of people at Losar to

be able to greet His Holiness the Dalai

Lama. In 1983 he participated in the Six

Yogas of Naropa taught by Lama Yeshe at

Vajrapani Institute in California. He was

also present at Lama Yeshe’s cremation.

Chayim obtained his Ph.D. from the

Institute of Transpersonal Psychology in

Menlo Park, California, in 1990. His disser-

tation was titled Jungian Psychology and the

Mahamudra in Vajrayana Buddhism.

He had a psychotherapy practice in

Soquel and led vision quests in the deserts

and mountains to help people seek out

deeper meanings and reconnect with the

Earth. He engaged people in joyous rituals

that were inclusive, musical and infused

with love. Chayim was a shaman, a sailor,

a kayaker, a backpacker, a bicyclist and an

amazing downhill skier. He was an avid

drummer and lovingly crafted ornate

drums and rattles from buffalo hides,

sticks and bones. He loved the sacred and

the absurd. Chayim lived a life unencum-

bered by fear.

Chayim was a devoted husband and
adventure companion to Shamaya for 40
years. He was a beautiful father to Yakov
and his fiancée Cynthia, son to Stan and
Sharon, brother to Dan and Lynn, and
uncle to Dimi, Chelo, Miquel and Jaume.
He fought for many hours to recover from
a bicycle accident he suffered on his way
to work, but could not win that battle.

Obituary

Barbara Gilbert, age 63, of Yakima, passed away surrounded by her family early in the morning on June 18th, 2017 at Harborview Medical Center. Barbara was known in the community for her compassion, knowledge and expertise in public education, love of community theatre, and her diligence to get the job done.

On March 27th, 1954 Barbara was born to Hulda (Weigel) and John Gilbert in Minneapolis.

She received her bachelor's degree in Psychology from Concordia University in Moorhead, MN. During college, Barbara developed a passion for theatre.

Barbara moved to Ellensburg, WA to pursue her Masters in School Psychology from Central Washington University. She met the love of her life, Darryl Tom in 1978 and they were married on February 25th, 1984. Barbara and Darryl raised two daughters, Laura Tom of Seattle and Karolynn Tom of Tacoma. Her pride and devotion to her family was evident to all.

For 37 years Barbara worked in the education field, serving 32 years with the Highland School District, initially as the School Psychologist and most recently as the Director of Student Services. She was instrumental in the creation of Kinder Camp and in bringing preschool back to the district. Barbara served on multiple state-wide work groups to improve educational practices for all students.

Barbara was devoted to her community theatre, the Warehouse Theatre Company, for over 30 years. Barbara was not one to be in the spotlight, but was consistently behind the scenes working on sets, lighting, box office, and the general logistics of running the theatre. She served on the Board of Directors for decades. Barbara was well-known for her creative lighting and set designs, winning multiple awards over the years. Barbara was devastated at the loss of the Allied Arts Building and worked diligently on finding and creating a new permanent home for her theatre family.

In her rare spare time, Barbara enjoyed gardening, sewing, knitting, and any other kind of crafting. Many will remember her for sharing her talents in the form of baby blankets and Christmas treats.

Barbara is survived by her loving husband Darryl Tom, daughters Laura (Scott) and Karolynn, mother Hulda Gilbert of Renville, MN, aunt Elsie Weigel of Danube, MN, and her dogs Rosie Marie and Kaiya Anne. She was preceded in death by her father John Gilbert.

The family requests memorials be sent to the Warehouse Theatre Company Capital Building Campaign. This will help support Barbara's dream of building a new home for the Warehouse Theatre. Information can be found at: https://www.warehousetheatrecompany.org.

Image Bob was a wonderful classmate who challenged me to be my best every day. He had a fabulous sense of humor that he put to good use in Spanish class. He exemplified having a positive attitude. I spoke with Bob at the last reunion and it was as if we had seen each other just a few weeks ago, not years. He is missed.

Susan Matsumoto (Tsuchiya)

Profile picture

Obituary

Profile picture

Tribute

From Fred Tsuchiya on June 18th, 2022
Susie was my cousin, friend, confidant.  She was a friend to all and an insipration for a life well lived.  The following is her biography from an annual scholarship given  in her memory to high school graduates by the Twin Cities Japanese Amercian Citizens League.


Susan Emi (Tsuchiya) Matsumoto
1954 – 1980
 
Susan E. Matsumoto Memorial Scholarship
Twin Cities JACL
 
Susan Emi (Tsuchiya) Matsumoto was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1954 to Frank and Helen Tsuchiya.  At age 4 in 1958, Susan and Family moved from Minneapolis to St. Louis Park, Minnesota and lived there until she married David Matsumoto in 1978.  Susan had two brothers, Frank and Todd Tsuchiya.
 
Susan graduated from St. Louis Park High School in 1972 as one of the students in the top academic honors group.  She graduated from the University of Minnesota College of Education in 1976 with very high distinction.
 
After graduation, there were very few teaching jobs anywhere in the State of Minnesota.  There was one opening in the Bloomington, MN school district and with hundreds of applications submitted, Susan got the job.  She had written her whole application in beautiful calligraphy attracting the judges’ attention.  The judges saw this, checked her grades, and she got the job.  The position was at Park Elementary School in Bloomington.  At the time of her death, she was a second grade teacher at Parkview School in Rosemount, Minnesota.
 
In many scrapbooks and countless papers show how she printed every program in beautiful calligraphy for all gatherings such as JACL, Buddhist Church programs and many other organizations who wanted her expertise.  She never refused.  She was always willing to help.
 
Susie was an accomplished musician; she played the piano, clarinet, and saxophone.  At her high school graduation, after her lung surgery, her solo performance included five different instruments.  Everyone could not believe she “blew” into these five instruments.  She was always in first chair playing her clarinet for the Concert Band.  She gave piano lessons to the children in the neighborhood throughout her college career to help pay for her tuition.  She appeared many times on TV or at different parties to play her koto, the same koto that her Grandmother Tsuchiya played when she was a young girl.
 
Susan was a true Buddhist.  She belonged to the Twin Cities Buddhist Association and taught Sunday School.  All the children loved her as she made it fun to study the teachings of the Buddha, by performing plays, craft work, and songs.  When she married, her husband David was a Christian.  He marveled at the way Susan believed and started to believe it also.  After her death, David studied further and became a Buddhist minister to pass the teachings onto others.  He is currently President of the Institute for Buddhist Studies, Director of the Center for Contemporary Shin Buddhist Studies, and past resident minister of the Berkeley Buddhist Temple.
 
This is truly Susan; Who suffered through many recurrences of her illness but never complained about it.  Her illness began at age 10 but she never gave up and believed she was going to live each day and carry on the work she believed in.
 
The Susan Matsumoto Scholarship Fund was started by Sally Sudo who taught her piano lessons when she was a very young girl.  She could see Susie’s potential in learning not only piano but other things as she went to her house each week.  This scholarship has been in existence since her death in 1980.  Most of the recipients have been high school graduates and it seems most were girls who resemble Susan's capabilities in academics, music, art, and community service.  Many recipients have followed Susan’s footsteps and have succeeded in their future endeavors.
 
From Chaiya(Wendy) isenberg on August 4th, 2012
Susie was awesome at everything she did.  I think of her often as I drive by her house almost daily, honking my horn and waving at her mom (Helen). Sat next to her in band . She was the best clarinetist.  She played her Koto  at Eliot School for us all and sharing her Japanese heritage.   I looked up to her. She left us much too soon.

Obituary for David Michael Rutman

Age 66, lived his whole life in the Twin Cities. He passed peacefully with family by his side on Sept. 20, 2021. He grew up in North Mpls and moved to St. Louis Park as a young teen. He attended the University of MN which was always his dream as he and his family were huge MN sports fans and especially loyal Gopher fans. With his love of sports and people, David entered the business world. He brought his charismatic personality and big heart wherever he went. He is preceded in death by his parents, Milton and Charlotte (Ermansky) Rutman; and father in law, Herbert Bernick. He is survived by his wife, Sheila (Bernick), married just shy of 39 years; and the true loves of his life, his four children, their spouses and three grandchildren. Marni (Brent) Gensler, Rochelle (Christopher) Rogers, Allison (Andrew) Lifson, Charles Rutman, Liam and Eva Gensler and Cecilia Rogers; his brother, Gordon (Sherri) Rutman; mother-in law, Marcia Bernick; brothers and sisters in law, Alan (Elisa) Bernick, Steven (Vivian) Bernick and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. David had many passions throughout his life. He loved to play sports, and shared his love of sports by coaching his own children and many others. Always watching sports, he never gave up on his MN Vikings. David’s long health battles even to the end were always fought with courage, a smile and his signature thumbs up! The family wishes to thank all the medical personnel who helped David through his challenges with great skill, compassionate care and kindness. David will always be remembered for his love of sports, playing cards with his good buddies, his love of good food (especially Chinese food and french silk pie), but most of all, for his love of family!
