Takejiro Higa

Takejiro attends the University of Hawaii for one year on the GI Bill but withdraws to work full-time as a butcher at his brother-in-law's store.

He marries Ruby Fumie Miyasato in 1953. With her support, he returns to UH and graduates with a degree in accounting in 1960.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) employs Takejiro until retirement.
