Hisanori "Nori" Hasegawa

January 6, 1957 — February 25, 2024

Dr. Hisanori “Nori” Hasegawa, 67, of Johnson City, TN, passed away on Sunday, February 25, 2024, following a battle with colorectal cancer.
 He was born on January 6, 1957 in Asahikawa, Hokkaido, Japan, to Shigeko Muramatsu Hasegawa and the late Tetsuo Hasegawa. 
 Dr. Hasegawa was a man deeply connected to his faith, which he trusted to lead him throughout his life. His dedication to his church and his belief in Christ’s providence led him to move to the United States in 1980. 
 For the next 44 years, he touched many lives across the country through his work as a neurologist and his calling to specialize in care for the epileptic. He had a true heart for service, with his only regret at the end of his life being that he was unable to treat more people.
 Dr. Hasegawa was a loving husband and father, a gifted doctor, a devoted member of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church, and a model train enthusiast.
 In addition to his father, he is preceded in death by one daughter, Machiko Helen Hasegawa.
 Alongside his mother, his memory is cherished by: his wife, Yoko Kagawa Hasegawa, and sister, Shiori Shibano.
 A visitation for Dr. Hasegawa will take place from 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM on Thursday, February 29, 2024, at Morris-Baker Funeral Home. A memorial service will be held at 2:00 PM on Sunday, March 10, 2024, at the Johnson City Seventh-Day Adventist Church, 1910 E Oakland Avenue, Johnson City, TN 37601.
