I'll go the morbid route. Thought I'd seen Shozaburo Shimano's birthdate recently, but no, it was just the year (1894). In looking back I did find both his and his son's dates of death.

Shozaburo Shimano (founder of Shimano) died September 20, 1958 (an illness, location not shown) citation: http://www.ibo.or.jp/e/2005_3/01_4/1_1.html

Shozo Shimano (Shozaburo's son and successor at the helm of Shimano) died Monday 17 June 2002 (heart failure, Osaka Japan) citation: <http://www.singletrackworld.com/topics.php?op=viewtopic&topic =1>

Hey, it's something. Dan Kehew, Davis CA
