Dr Takeo Shimizu
Posted 27 February 2011 - 07:37 PM
"It is with great regret that I report that Takeo Shimizu died on February 14. He was 99 years old. This information was conveyed by a Japanese pyrotechnist friend to the Revd. Ron Lancaster this Friday and just today forwarded by him, so I have every confidence in the source."
Dr Shimizu was the author of "Fireworks: The Art, Science and Techniques" and other works. He spent his life working in pyrotechnics and was recognized as one of the foremost authorities in the industry. We shall not see his like again.

Whistle all over and another case split;
Shimizu don't you call me 'cause I can't go,
I owe my soul to the Skylighter store.
Apologies to T. E. Ford.
RIP Doctor, your legacy goes on.
