Hyman Fujinaga  - If visitors to Kalaupapa expected to be somber and detached during their tour of the Molokai Hansen’s disease settlement, guide Hyman Fujinaga soon scrambled their preconceived ideas. His anecdotes about life in the remote peninsula had them chuckling, tearful and  often angry as he brought to life the history of the place and the people  banished there because of the disease. Fujinaga, 64, died Jan. 27, 1997 in the Kalaupapa hospital. After services at St.  Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, he was buried next to his brother, one of  three siblings who also were stricken with leprosy. Fujinaga served as a tour guide with Father Damien Tours on his days off from  duties as a kitchen helper in the facility where food is prepared for patients and  state workers. He retired a year ago after suffering a stroke. The story of Father Damien DeVeuster, 19th century missionary priest who  served the people banished to the settlement, was important to Fujinaga as tour  guide and patient, said his wife, Josephine. A highlight of his life was visiting  Damien’s homeland, Belgium, on a 1994 tour anticipating the priest’s  beatification by the Catholic Church.  Josephine Fujinaga, a former Waikiki resident and native of Canada, met  Fujinaga when she took the tour. “He had quite a charming way about him,”  she said, and later told her she was the girl for him “from the time he saw me  reading the marker at the airport; he said sun was shining like gold on your  hair.”  His death came on their third wedding anniversary.  Fujinaga was diagnosed with Hansen’s disease at the age of 6, and was sent to   Kalaupapa with a boatload of other children in 1942 because officials felt they  were not   safe in Honolulu after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. He recalled his first days in a 1995 interview.    “I remember the first time I came into the room. I was fearful watching the  people eat. I walked in clinging to the wall,” and the sight of tragically disfigured  patients eating with difficulty sent him running from the room.  His wife recalled his tales of adventures. “The boys lived in Baldwin Boys  Home and when they were young they used to sneak into the girls’ quarters.  “One of the boys had his head shaved, so the boys decided they would all   shave their heads,” was another of his stories, she said.   “The woman supervisor at Leahi Hospital made them take their caps off. When   she saw the bald heads, she sent them to bed without supper. Only 7 years old  cannot imagine that. I raised five kids and at that age I was still kissing  them good night at bedtime,” said Josephine Fujinaga.  When the tour bus passed the collapsing wooden water tank, “he said that they  found rats in it, and that’s when he started drinking beer,” she recalled. “When   he was younger, he would sing and talk story in the bar, but not after we got   married. He was a lot of fun.”   Fujinaga is also survived by two brothers.
