Kuwabara, Lincoln James - On Tuesday, February 20, 2018, Lincoln James Kuwabara spent a fun, meaningful day skiing with his older brother and best friend, Jesse. While they were there, Lincoln went peacefully to be with his Lord Jesus Christ after a tragic skiing accident. He was surrounded and aided by people truly Heaven-sent from the ski patrol and troopers to the doctors and coroner as well as family and friends who rushed to Lehigh Valley Hospital Pocono Medical Center. Lincoln leaves behind his parents, Cecil and Nancy Kuwabara; sister Kathryn Kuwabara; sister Amy Kazi and her husband Salman Kazi; brother David Kuwabara and his wife, Alana; brother, Jesse Kuwabara and his fiancé Lauren DePaul and sister, Erin Kuwabara; his nieces and nephews Chloe and Ulysses Kuwabara and Mariyah, Omar, Zaid, Ali and Aminah Kazi; his closest of many cousins, Patrick Thorpe and Michael Moody; his loving aunts Joy, Terry, Beth, Barbara, Regina, Kim and Midori and uncle Jerry Keilman. Lincoln has joined his Uncle Jerry Thorpe, deceased February 1st, 2018. He was a healthy, vibrant 26 year old who loved to travel for fun and on missions trips and especially for family, which is what brought him to Pennsylvania in the first place that weekend to spend time with Jesse, Lauren, David and Alana. He traveled from his hometown of Brantford, Ontario to North Bay for the birth of each of his nieces and nephews. He loved to hold Mariyah, Omar, Zaid, Ali and Aminah as newborns and play endlessly with them as they've grown. Lincoln preferred the outdoors, taking many walks down Glenhurst Garden and Harvey Road with his parents and Kathryn. These walks were prime real estate for family photos - whether everyone else wanted to pose or not. Lincoln got his love of photography from his father and the family is forever grateful for the thousands of captured memories he has left behind. He could also be found working on cars, especially his passion project, his Datsun 280 ZX. He had countless friends from all walks of life and from all around the world but no matter where he was, he was so Lincoln - humble and gentle, selfless, fun with his own brand of humor, a true peacemaker who put his family first in every situation. As Reverend Billy Graham said, 'My home is in heaven. I am just traveling through this world. ' To our beloved Lincoln, you travelled it well and now you are home in the arms of your Lord Jesus. We love you. Friends and family will be received at McCleister Funeral Home, 495 Park Road North, Brantford, on Tuesday February 27th from 4:00 - 8:00 p.m. A Funeral Service to celebrate Lincoln will be held at Koinonia Christian Fellowship, 850 Sawmill Rd, Woolwich, ON., on Wednesday February 28th at 1:00 p.m. Cremation has taken place.
