Super Sentai Cast Members Who Have Died

Since today is November 1, 2014 based on Japan standard time, let's pay tribute to our dearly departed Super Sentai cast members:

Baku Hatakeyama who played Daita Ooiwa in Goranger committed suicide.  He was born on June 18, 1944 and died on July 13, 1978 and he was only 34 years old.

Chinoyosuke Azuma who played General Kurama Tetsuzan in Battle Fever J died on November 9, 2000.  He was 74 years old.

Shin Kishida who played Daizaburo Arashiyama died of esophageal cancer on December 28, 1982.  He was only 47 years old.

Munemaru Kouda aka Doctor Man and Gorma Emperor... died on July 9, 1998.  He was 74 years old.

Yuko Asuka who played Farrah died around December 2011.  Too bad she died of illness too soon at only 56 years old.

Soga Machiko who played both Hedrian and Bandora (she was also Pandora in Spielban) died of pancreatic cancer on May 7, 2006.  She was 68 years old.  She and my aunt were born on the same year though the former went ahead of her.

Kouen Okumaru died on December 24, 2009.
