Dan Oniroku Passes Away




Dan Oniroku (real name Kuroiwa Yukihiko) died in a Tokyo hospital Friday evening of esophageal cancer. He was 80.

Funeral arrangements are pending.

Update 05/07:

The media are covering the passing of Dan Oniroku. These pics are from the "popular" press/sports papers.

Update 05/22:

I have changed Dan's age at the time of his passing from 79 to 80. Sources from Wikipedia to SMpedia to Master K agree that Dan was 80 when he died. The mainstream media all seem to be reporting that he was 79. There is a reason for this which I hope to go into in a future article. His correct date of birth seems to be April 16, 1931.
