Daniel K “Danny” Kamekona, 60, who played the bad guy in “Karate Kid Part II” and became one of Hawaii’s best known actors, was found dead in his Los Angeles apartment yesterday May 1, 1996. He had been dead several days in his bathroom, according to friends and family members. The family yesterday was trying to contact his wife, Michiko, who was in the mountains of Japan at a reunion with her brothers and sisters, said his sister, Noelani Kamekona. Kamekona’s health was good although he had a heart valve replacement, his sister said. “His doctor told him to cool it.” But he was “active and sociable, involved with his job and all the accouterments that come with it,” she said. Tommy Igarashi, longtime friend, said Kamekona told him last week he was doing some commercials and was up for an interview for a big movie. He had been in Los Angeles for about five months, flying back and forth from his Waialae home, Igarashi said. Kamekona was born and raised in Hilo. His late father, Daniel Kaniela, was

related to the standard bearer of Paa Kahili O Kamehameha. His mother, Vera Lani Kapu Makaea Aina Rose, 85, traces her lineage to Chief Kanekoa of Kau.  A Kamehameha Schools graduate, Kamekona began acting and singing as a youth. He performed with his sister in the Hawaii Youth Theater and later in the Hawaii Opera, Manoa Valley and Honolulu Community theaters. But he didn’t dream of an acting career until later; then he did it mostly for fun, he said once in an interview. He appeared regularly in the “Hawaii Five-O,” “Magnum, P.I.” and “Burke’s Law” television series. He had guest roles on the “Miami Vice” show and performed in other TV shows, pilots and movies. He became friends with Pat Morita while filming “Midway” in Hawaii. He attended the University of Hawaii after leaving Kamehameha Schools, then went to Brigham Young University - Hawaii Campus, where he was voted “the man most likely to succeed,” his sister said. He had wide interests - painting, playing the clarinet, ukulele, guitar and other instruments, singing with a chorale and other groups and participating in community and sports activities. She said he went to Osaka, Japan, for three years on a Mormon mission after BYU and came home with a bride. They have a son, Leigh Scott, and a daughter, Vera Lei. “Danny had a special personality,” Igarashi said. “He never thought because he was a movie actor that he was big time and snubbed anybody. He still had that

Hawaiian aloha fun.”     [SB 02/05/1996]

Emmet Kay  -  The Quiet Birdmen drank a silent toast to fellow aviator Emmet Kay last night in their traditional salute to pilots who “have gone west.” The social organization of aviators “remembers what a good, gentle person he was,” said Willie Schauer, a retired Air Force fighter pilot. “He was a soft-spoken man, very conscious of others’ feelings and situations around him.” Kay, 69, who flew for several companies in Hawaii and Guam for 50 years, died Thursday May 2, 1996 in Wahiawa General Hospital. Kay was best known for a 16-month interruption in his flying career, a period near the end of the Vietnam War when he was held as a prisoner of war by Communists in Laos. A civilian pilot, he was captured in May 1973 after his small Porter aircraft was shot down by ground fire. Kay was flying for Continental Air Service, which ferried supplies and people to CIA-backed operations near the Vietnam border in Laos even after the United States had

entered into a ceasefire with North Vietnam. His imprisonment in limestone caves affected his health ever afterward, said son Kimo Kay. “He tried to get medical help but was denied by the government. He was a civilian, he fell through the cracks.” Schauer said: “When he came back, he was quite bitter about the capture and his treatment by the United States after his release.” The government did not compensate him or acknowledge him as a prisoner of war. Years later, however, the Special Services Association recognized him as an associate member of the group. Kay had organized a Guam air-taxi service, Micronesian Airlines, in 1965. After his release in 1975 and an unsuccessful run at the state Legislature, he piloted commercial flights in the Marianas islands for nearly 10 years. Born on Oahu, Kay also flew for Soar Hawaii, Aloha Airlines, Sky Tours Hawaii and Andrew Flying Service. He was a World War II veteran. Funeral services will be held at 9 a.m. Friday at Oahu Cemetery. Burial will be at 1 p.m. in the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, Punchbowl. He is survived by wife Florence; son Kimo; daughter Puanani; sisters Clara Osorio and Anna Camp bell; brothers William Kay and Ian Holt; and a granddaughter.    [SB 04/05/1996]
