Richard Davi, 71, who drew national attention to Hawaii’s health care developments as leader of the Kapiolani Health Care System for 32 years, died Monday Mar 24, 1997 of heart failure at Kuakini Hospital. Davi, born in California, ended up in Hawaii after he was stationed here in the Navy. He attended the University of Hawaii for two years, then obtained a business administration degree from the University of Portland. Using his administrative and people skills, he built Kapiolani from a facility with $4.5 million in assets and $2 million in revenues to a maternity and women’s specialty hospital with $261 million in assets and $247 million in revenues. “Dick was a giant in the health care field here for years,” said Rich Meiers, Healthcare Association of Hawaii president and chief executive officer. Davi had served as president of the association’s board and headed various committees and task forces, not only in the association but with the American Hospital Association, Meiers said. “He was a very innovative individual who had the foresight to plan for health care for our community and state, to the point that we now enjoy a very fine reputation in regard to health care within the nation.” John Walker Jr., president of Kapiolani Health Foundation, has been associated with Davi, the foundation’s president-emeritus, for 24 years. “The people of this state have benefited tremendously from his vision and accomplishments. We were very fortunate to have had his leadership for so many years.” After serving as personnel director at Queen’s Medical Center from 1957 to 1962, Davi joined Kapiolani Hospital as assistant administrator. “It was just a cute little kind of maternity hospital,” his wife, Jeannine, recalled yesterday.  Six months later, Davi was named to replace the administrator, who died suddenly. He became president of Kapiolani/Children’s Medical Center in 1978 and was president and chief executive officer of the Kapiolani Health Care System until retiring in 1994. Under his leadership, the little maternity hospital grew into a highly respected, nationally noted health care system with two hospitals, research facilities and other health care organizations. The hospital also operates such community-based programs as the Sex Abuse Treatment Center, Hawaii Poison Center, Teen Intervention and Family Support Center, which Davi encouraged as part of hospital service to meet community needs. In 1978, he consolidated Kapiolani Hospital’s maternity operations with Kauikeolani Children’s Hospital at the Punahou location. The result: one of the top women’s and children’s health care centers in the country. As Chamber of Commerce of Hawaii president in 1987, Davi was instrumental in shaping a view of health care as a big business and a key player in the state’s economic development. With Kapiolani’s acquisition of Pali Momi Medical Center in 1989, his vision of an acute care hospital caring for all family members was fulfilled. Besides his business career, Davi was active in the community and “was always there for family  and friends too,” Jeannine Davi said. “I don’t know how he always stretched himself so far.” Davi established the Division of Maternal and Child Health of the American Hospital Association. And in 1981, he was one of two hospital administrators in the nation to receive the association’s prestigious Meritorious Service citation.  He was current president of the Oahu Country Club. He was an officer or director of the American Hospital Association, Hospital Association of Hawaii, Aloha United Way, Regional Medical Program of Hawaii, Association of Western Hospitals, Hawaii League for Nursing, Hawaii Medical Services Association and the Chamber of Commerce of Hawaii. Other survivors include son Dana; daughters Debra Brown and Malia Larson; two grandchildren; mother Anne Hight; brother Lawrence Davi, and sister Diane Farley. Memorial services will be at 4 p.m. Friday at Central Union Church. Interment will be private. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Richard Davi Scholarship, Kapiolani Health Foundation, 55 Merchant St., 26th floor, Honolulu 96813.

Evaristo Dela Cruz, who worked in the sugar fields for a dollar a day as one of the first Filipino immigrants to Hawaii, died April 1, 1997  in Hilo Hospital. He was 103. The Pepeekeo, Hawaii, resident, who worked in the 1920s at the former Pioneer Mill in Lahaina, had received the Oldest Living Sakada Award on Dec.  28, 1991. Daughter Leonora Sensano explained those recruited in the Philippines to work in Hawaii as her father was were known as sakada. He was 97 years old when he was presented a plaque by the United Filipino Council of Hawaii for being the Oldest Living Sakada, she said. He had arrived in Hawaii in 1921, working about seven years before returning to the Philippines in 1927. “At that time, plantation life was hard,” Sensano said. “They worked for a dollar a day from dark in the morning till dark at night.” After returning to the Philippines, he was a farmer, his daughter said. He returned to Hawaii after Sensano, who was born in Hawaii, moved back and sponsored his return. Her father returned in 1970, she said. She described him as tall and strong. “He used to teach martial arts,” she said, adding that he liked boxing. He helped heal broken bones by massage techniques, and he knew how to deliver babies—things he learned in the Philippines, his daughter said. “He loved people. He loved to talk stories about the past, about his experience, especially when he was working in Lahaina,” she said. Born in Magsingal, Ilocos Sur, the Philippines, he also is survived by daughters Avelina Agbayani, Agrifina Ignacio and Susana Agbayani; 23 grandchildren; 39 great- grandchildren; and four great- great-grandchildren. A wake will be at 7 p.m. Friday at Dodo Mortuary with Mass at 10 a.m. Saturday at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church in Papaikou.  Friends may call after 6 p.m. Friday at the mortuary and after 9 a.m. Saturday at the church.

Charlotte Dennis, a 40-year veteran nurse who pioneered home health care in Hawaii, died Saturday Aug 16, 1997 in Tennessee. Her colleagues remember her fondly as a patient advocate and mentor to   many. “Charlotte fought on behalf of the patients,” said July Walden, chief executive officer of Kokua Nurses. Walden was one of the nurses Dennis mentored into the home care field.  Jean Nohara, who worked with Dennis at St. Francis Medical Center, said  Dennis “did a lot to make the community accept home health care as a  cost-effective alternative to hospitalization.”  Nohara, director of St. Francis Home Care Services, said Dennis believed patients wanted home care and that she fought for it at a time when home care  was not widely accepted in Hawaii.  Dennis began her nursing career in Hawaii in 1952. She was director of  nursing at Queen’s Medical Center in 1965 and assistant nursing administrator  in 1967. She was named as the Oahu representative to the state nursing board by Gov.  John Burns in 1967, serving on it for eight years.  In 1973, Dennis was named “Nurse of the Year” by the Hawaii Nurses  Association.  She also served as the principal investigator for a federally funded   study of the quality of nursing care in Hawaii.  Dennis joined St. Francis Medical Center in 1975 where she served as director  of Home Care Services until 1991. In 1988 she was honored for her outstanding contributions to the hospital.  Members of the Hawaii Association for Home Care paid Dennis special tribute  when they created the Charlotte Dennis Award in 1992 for outstanding  contribution to the home care field and made her its first recipient.  A native of Washington, D.C., Dennis earned a bachelor’s degree at Catholic  University in Washington, D.C., and a master’s degree from the University of   Colorado at Boulder.  Active in nursing organizations, she was secretary of the Hawaii Nurses  Association for eight years; chairwoman of the Hawaii Mana- O-Lana Award of the Hawaii Cancer Society and a lifetime member of the Hawaii Association  of Home Care.  She is survived by brother Reyburn H. Dennis Jr.; nephews Donald B., Karl  D. and Alan. Services will be held on the mainland.

Donald I. “D.D.” Doi  -While he was president of Doi Hauling Co. Construction Inc., the late Donald I.“D.D.” Doi received a plaque from his employees with the following inscription:

 

“If a man is honest with others and with himself;

“If he receives gratefully and gives quietly;

“If he is gentle enough to feel and strong enough to show his feelings;

“If he is slow to see the faults of others but quick to discover their goodness;

“If he is cheerful in difficult times and modest in success;

“If he does his best to be true to his beliefs, then he is truly an admirable man.”

 

Florence Onogi Doi treasures the plaque because it reflects the love her husband of 49 years had for people. “He was a beautiful person who was very, very people oriented,” she said of her husband, who died Sunday Aug 31, 1997 at Kuakini Hospital following a lengthy illness.  He was 68. “He was so active in the community, and I can remember him refusing to help only once, and that was when his father had cancer,” she added. Before illness slowed him in 1989, Doi had served as president of the Japanese Chamber of Commerce and also its junior organiza tion, Pearl Harbor Rotary Club, the Hawaii Economic Study Club, and the Hawaii Transportation Association, formerly the Hawaii Trucking Association. Doi, a 1947 Iolani high school graduate, also served on the State Hospital Advisory Board for 16 years. He once described the business philosophy his father taught him in a Tendai Mission newsletter. “Business is like a bow and arrow,” Doi said. “You cannot just look at the target ... you need to prepare yourself from within before aiming. “In any business you have profit,” he added, “but father’s teaching was never let greed overpower you.” The Doi family business was recognized by the Chamber of Commerce of Hawaii with a business award for 50 successful years of operation during her husband’s tenure as president, Mrs. Doi said. Other survivors include son Duane M.; daughter Donnette R. Kido; brother Stanley T., and sister Shirley S. Isobe. Services: 10 a.m. Saturday, Hosoi Garden Mortuary. No flowers.

William A. Bill Duff Dougherty of Honolulu, longtime clean water activist, died Saturday Jan 25, 1997 in Straub Hospital. He was 66. A native of Salida, Colo., he worked as a television producer. Also, he was in advertising and public relations with Fawcett McDermott. His employment history included affiliation with Kona TV and Tongg Publishing Co., and he additionally worked at Tripler Hospital and Pearl Harbor. But he was best known as a strong advocate of clean water legislation. He last made the news a little more than nine months ago when new findings of pesticide content in Board of Water Supply wells led the board to shut down one well and carefully monitor seven others. The findings lent support to his demands for improved monitoring and reporting of contamination, he said. A prolific writer of letters to the editor, he also wanted guarantees to safeguard the secret ballot. He suspected computerization made vote fraud a possibility. His watchdog role also found him in clashes with a number of public officials. For example, he criticized state Health Director John Lewin in 1991 and the Health Department of its handling of water quality testing. He targeted City Councilman Leigh-Wai Doo in 1990 and grilled  him at a Palolo Neighborhood Board meeting on campaign contributions, tape-recording Doos answers. Doo said contributions did not affect his decisions as a Council member. His wife, Gladys, said he had a sense of humor that balanced out his serious side. Dougherty also is survived by sons Michael, Patrick, John and William Jr.; and two grandchildren. A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. tomorrow in Oahu Cemetery Chapel. The family requests casual attire.      [SB 30/01/1997]

 

Cornelius D. “Corny” Downes, 75, former Star-Bulletin journalist who had a puckish sense of humor and courage to challenge controversial issues, died yesterday Mar 25, 1997 at Kaiser Moanalua Medical Center.  Downes, longtime Kailua resident, was known as an “idea man” and a punster while working at the Star-Bulletin from 1952-1967. He held various positions as a writer and editor. “He’s a wonderful, whimsical person who made the world better,” said A.A. (Bud) Smyser, Star-Bulletin contributing editor.  “Part of his whimsy was to look at the globe and see Hawaii and Bachuanaland as an antipode of each other on earth. No state in the United States had an antipode that wasn’t water.  “He encouraged a relationship between Hawaii and what later became Botswana, even to the point where President Lyndon Johnson sent Gov.  (John) Burns to Botswana when it became an independent nation.” Downes edited several of the Star-Bulletin’s annual progress editions “and he focused on Hawaiian history and created issues worth saving forever,” Smyser said. Some have been reprinted in a book, he said. He worked every position on the newspaper’s copy desk, served as state editor, night editor, page one make-up editor and special editions editor. Downes left the newspaper in 1967 to become information director of the state Planning and Economic Development. He worked 19 years for the state, producing a 14-page special section on Hawaii for Fortune magazine in 1982. He was interim press secretary for Gov. George Ariyoshi. The New York Irishman also was also “chief harpist” of the Irish for Ariyoshi Association, I.Ari.A. He edited the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard Log before joining the Star-Bulletin. He turned to journalism after becoming a staff member and editor of the Pearl Harbor Banner from 1942-1946. Survivors include his wife, Miyuki; sisters, Catherine and Claire, both of New York; sons Paul, Patrick, Michael and Stephen of Honolulu and Lawrence of New York, daughters Mary of Seattle and Margaret Mary of Honolulu, and 10 grandchildren. Services are pending.
