Randy Borden, 45, who starred as a young athlete and later made his mark as a singer, musician and songwriter, died Saturday Oct 25, 1997 at his Seattle home after a three-year battle with colon cancer. The Molokai-born Borden with his partner in music Jon Osorio co-wrote “Hawaiian Eyes,” which won “Song of the Year” honors in the 1981 Na Hoku Hanohano Awards. Borden also helped write the song “Hawaiian Soul.” He, Osorio and Steve Brown recently recorded “E Ho‘i Mai,” a CD-ROM released Aug. 5. Half the proceeds from that album are being donated to Angel Network, a transitional shelter program for homeless Hawaiian families. In recent times, Borden was a Seattle-based producer of children’s programs. “Like all great Hawaiians, Randy will be greatly missed,” said longtime friend Michelle Miller. “I think the thing that impressed me about Randy was the amount of growth that he had had in the last 10 years,” she said. “He became a man 100 percent committed to his family and children in Hawaii. ... His humor and his spirit inspired everyone who knew him and loved him.” His gift for harmony was magical, she said. “I’ve never seen anything like it,” Miller said. “I was in awe at his talent.” Another friend of 25 years, Walter Kawaiaea, recalled Borden spent time at his Kapolei home over the summer. “We cherish the time that we had with him,” Kawaiaea said. “He’ll be missed because he was such a dynamic personality, and he was such a positive individual; and I think that void is going to be felt, especially with his family. I think his legacy and his love for Hawaii will live on through his music.” His athletic history included stardom in football and basketball at Kaimuki High School, where he was named outstanding athlete for 1970-71.  He played freshman football as a middle linebacker with Brigham Young University and transferred to the University of Hawaii as a tight end for the 1972 season.  Although he showed promise, injuries cut short his UH football career. He is survived by wife, Patrice; daughter Po‘omaikai Taggert; sons Maui, Kanoa and Makai; father Sam Peters; mother Myrna Haunani Waiwaiole; sister Noelani Wood; son-in-law Jacob Taggert; and one grandchild, Nakoa Taggert. A memorial service will take place at 6:30 p.m. Saturday Nov. 15 at Cavalry by the Sea Lutheran Church. Contributions for his children may be made to the Randy K. Borden Memorial Fund, c/o First Hawaiian Bank.       [SB 28/10/1997]

Wright E. Bowman Jr  - Master wood carver and canoe builder Wright E. Bowman Jr. died in a  single-car accident on the Big Island yesterday Aug 18, 1997. He was 53.  The kahuna kalai wa‘a (master canoe builder) designed and built the  Hawai‘iloa, a 57-foot, twin-hulled canoe and successor to the Hokule‘a, which  his father, Wright Bowman Sr., helped build.  According to police reports, Bowman had been traveling toward Hilo on Route 19 at about 7:15 a.m. when the accident occurred. Officers determined that his  1987 Cherokee sedan crossed the center line and struck a guard rail. He was  the only person in the car.  Bowman was taken to the North Hawaii Community Hospital in Waimea  where he was pronounced dead at 8:24 a.m.  An autopsy will be performed.  In 1992, Bowman was commissioned by the federally funded Explorations  Project of the Native Hawaiian Culture and Arts Program at the Bishop  Museum to build a canoe from authentic materials used by ancient Polynesian  canoe builders.  Bowman had his own ideas about the design of the ship, which he built along  the lines of a racing canoe, much sleeker than its sister ship, the Hokule‘a.   His challenge was to fashion the canoe from two 65-foot Alaskan spruce logs.  He used lauhala for the sails and sennit for the cordage, as in the ancient days.  He completed the canoe in 1995, and the vessel took sail, retracing the route  of the first Hawaiian migration from the Marquesas.  Bowman developed his skill and love for woodworking in his father’s   workshop, where he played as a child.     He is survived by parents Wright and Elizabeth B. Whittington; wife Sharon R.; son Charles K. Nakagawa; brother W. Kent; and sister Claire M. Graham. Services: 1 p.m. Saturday at Bernice Pauahi Bishop Memorial Chapel.

Edward Cole Bryan was a leader in the Republican Party and manager of a sugar plantation, but friends recall most his fortitude and optimism despite crippling pain. Bryan, who died May 27, 1997  in Johnson City, Tenn., at the age of 77, was stricken as a young man with a form of arthritis that eventually fused his vertebrae. The condition forced him to use crutches for 30 years, and finally a wheelchair, yet he continued to persevere. “He was a very remarkable man, a real gentleman of the old school,” said Robert Gordon, a friend and retired Castle & Cooke Inc. executive. “He never complained, and carried on just like an ordinary person, although he was in terrible pain of most his life. He just was a completely unquenchable guy.” Bryan was born in Waialua on Aug. 22, 1919. He graduated from Leilehua High School and went to the Colorado School of Mines on scholarship, earning an engineering degree. He was a captain in the Army Signal Corps during World War II, and in 1947 was named housing director of the former Ewa Plantation Co. It was the start of a 25-year career in the sugar industry that saw him rise to vice president and manager, a position he held from 1962 to 1970. After the plantation was sold, he was a Castle & Cooke vice president for public affairs until leaving in 1972. Bryan was active in Hawaii politics, elected in 1957 to be the Republican Party’s territorial chairman. He got headlines and criticism when he agreed to speak at a International Longshore and Warehouse Union convention, at the time associated with radical politics. His forthright speech and demeanor, though, turned the criticism to praise. “I think it was the first time they’d ever seen a plantation boss with an aloha shirt on,” recalled William Paty, a former state official and manager of the Waialua sugar plantation. “In those days everybody starched around with a long-sleeve shirt and tie, so he was a very special guy that way.” He was a delegate to the 1950 Constitutional Convention delegate, and generated headlines again when he declared for the 1968 convention—and the ILWU endorsed his successful bid. At other times, Bryan chaired the state Land Use Commission, and was on the statehood commission. He served multiple terms as head the Arthritis Foundation of Hawaii, receiving a national foundation award. He also was active with the Boy Scouts, St. Francis Hospital, the Honolulu Central Seventh-day Adventist Church, the Ewa Community Church, the Calvary-by-the Sea Lutheran Church, Pearl Harbor Rotary Club, Hawaii Medical Library, Hawaii Humane Society, and Hale Mohalu Auxiliary. As a lifelong amateur ham-radio operator, he joined an exclusive club by reflecting his signals off the moon. “He was a rather brilliant man, and his influence was high because he was a child of the land, a keiki o ka aina,” Gordon said. Bryan is survived by wife Bennie; sons Michael and Edward; daughters Kathleen Racki, Mary Thielkeld, and Christiane Bintliff; stepchildren W. Fred Deneen, Carol Malone and Patricia Willoughby; 14 grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren. A memorial service was held on the mainland. Bryan asked that no services be held in Hawaii but that his ashes be scattered off Waialua. The family suggests donations to charity in lieu of flowers.        [SB 04/06/1997]
