He was 81. Born in Paia, Maui, Vasconcellos graduated from Kamehameha Schools and  San Jose State, where his track prowess earned him a spot in the college's hall  of fame. He went on to become a teacher and the Roosevelt High School athletic director for 23 years. His Rough Rider dynasty during the mid-1950s  rolled to three undefeated seasons. He also coached Roosevelt to four ILH track and field championships. In 13 coaching years at Roosevelt, Vasconcellos' teams won 62 games, lost 30  and tied three.  He was known as the dean of Oahu athletic directors. he took over the job in  1952 from his brother, Hank, who was tabbed to coach the University of Hawaii football team.  Before his stint as Roosevelt athletic director, Vasconcellos taught and coached at Konawaena, Kauai and Kaimuki high schools. Colleagues remember Vasconcellos as a strict coach who demanded a lot from  his young charges. "He was a stern perfectionist as far as football was concerned," said Stanley  Chung, who followed Vasconcellos as Roosevelt athletic director. "Things had  to be done his way. You had to repeat and repeat until he was satisfied. And there was a warm side of him too. People who graduated and came back can attest to that."
