Norito Kawakami, 85, of Honolulu, retired judge and one-term territorial legislator, died Friday Nov 29, 1997 at home. Kawakami stepped down in 1977 at age 65 as a Circuit Court judge. His clerk at the time, Marion Kitagawa, called him “very even-tempered” and “the best I‘ve seen.” As he neared retirement, Kawakami said: “After serving 20 years in both District and Circuit Courts—I feel that’s about enough for anybody.” He had been elevated from Kauai District Court magistrate to Oahu Circuit Court judge in 1971 by Gov. John A. Burns. “My theory of operation is that I perform the functions of a judge in whatever level of office I am in,” Kawakami told a Star-Bulletin reporter. “I do the best job I can on the basis of what the law is, and I apply this law on what I determine the facts to be.” He was known for never making even off-the-record comments on pending cases. For about his last three years on the bench, he handled the motions calendar. “I must have handled about 2,000 to 2,500 motions a year; some of these terminated a case and some just decided points of law that arose from a case,” he said. Asked for his thoughts on what could be done to improve the judicial system, he said: “I’m just a working judge. I’m not a high-class jurist.” He worked with what he had to work with, he said. “The system is workable and is the best under the circumstances.” Born in Eleele, Kauai, he attended Kauai public schools and the University of Hawaii. After World War II service, he eventually graduated from the University of Colorado law school in 1953. He had served as a territorial representative from Kauai in 1949 and 1950. Following a brief time in private practice, Kawakami became a deputy attorney general here in 1954. His early legal career included service as a District Court magistrate on Kauai. His varied background included time as a county agent prior to wartime military service. He was Kauai manager for Aloha Airlines from 1946 to 1950. He also served as Kauai Chamber of Commerce president and Chamber of Commerce of Hawaii vice president. He is survived by wife Joan; daughters Alice, Esther and Irene; brothers Keiji, Toru and Daniel; sisters Yukie Murakami and Mabel Hashisaka; and one grandchild. Private services.

Moody Keliihoomalu  - Moody Keliihoomalu’s job as protocol officer with the state government put him at the front line of greeting kings, prime ministers and presidents when they arrived in Hawaii. When he retired in 1987 he had served 30 years in state jobs that also included election administrator and visitor information specialist with the Department of Transportation. “He loved his job, and his second love was the Special Forces,” said Alfred Fernandez of Aiea, a friend who shared years of experiences in the Army Reserve. They were with the Hawaii Reserve Special Forces unit that trained as a backup for the Army’s Green Berets during the Vietnam War. Keliihoomalu died Tuesday Feb 18, 1997 in Castle Hospital. Fernandez said his friend joined the U.S. Army in 1945 and served as an interpreter in interrogation of German prisoners. He left the Army in 1956, and continued in the Reserve until he retired as a master sergeant 1978. “Moody almost died in Okinawa, where we were taking parachute training,” he recalled. “The colonel had everyone in the barracks kneel and say a prayer for Moody” who had collapsed while running  in hot and humid weather. “He was a very resilient man. He completed parachute training the next year and eventually qualified as a senior paratrooper with 75 jumps.” Fernandez said: “Although he was proud of being a Green Beret, he was a peaceful man. He was a loving family man. He never said anything bad about anyone. He loved his wife and children, and was just getting to love his four little grandchildren.” David Trask, former executive director of the Hawaii Government Employees Association, said: “I think he contributed to the building of the union. He did his part.” Keliihoomalu was Oahu chapter president and state president of the union in the days before it was separated into units representing diverse groups of government workers. He was active in several organizations including the Democratic Party, St. Louis High School Parent Teachers Group, Olomana Community Association, Kailua Elks Club, Knights of Columbus and Veterans of Foreign Wars. Born in Hilo, he is survived by his wife Evelyn; son Moody III; daughters Moodette Kaapana, Cathleen, Tracy and Jaydeen Keliihoomalu; sisters Ordis Jury and Velma Choy; stepmother Hannah Keliihoomalu; half brother Kentworth; half sister Karla Akiona; and four grandchildren.

Jim A. “Diamond Jim” Kincaid  - Veteran pilot Jim A. “Diamond Jim” Kincaid will be remembered in a memorial fly-by ceremony at noon Sunday at Dillingham Airfield. He died when his single-engine plane plunged into the ground at a Confederate Air Force show at San Marcos Municipal Airport, Texas, Sept. 20, 1997. He was 60. Kincaid was a captain with Aloha Island Air and a designated pilot examiner for the Federal Aviation Administration, Hawaii district. “We do these fly-bys for people who are special,” said FAA safety program manager Tweet Coleman, who was Kincaid’s supervisor. “He was one of those people who really stand out. He helped a lot of people, and he taught a lot of people here how to fly. “He was also a minister, so he married a lot of couples too. His legacy really does live on.” On Sunday, several aircraft will fly over the airfield in formation, then one plane will break off from the group in a missing man formation. Kincaid’s ashes then will be scattered over the ocean from the air. A pot-luck gathering will follow the fly-by. Born in Arkansas City, Kan., Kincaid is survived by wife Maritza. Donations are suggested to International Council of Air Shows Foundation, 715 S. Beach St., Suite 102, Daytona Beach, FL. 32114.

Francis Coolidge King  - Musicians will gather at the funeral of Francis Coolidge King, 72, for a musical tribute to the man who loved jazz. “He specifically requested he have a jazz group” at his funeral, said his wife, Lilly. King was killed last Friday Apr 25, 1997 at his Palolo Valley home. Police are still searching for suspects in the apparent beating. King had been a well-known jazz player and showman since the big- band era of the 1940s. Musician Gabe Baltazar said he was 15 years old when he went to dance halls to hear King’s band, the Esquire Orchestra, play. People stopped dancing to watch the entertaining King. “He was the hot man of the Esquire,” Baltazar said. King’s brother, Thomas Cho, gave King his first trumpet while he was a student at Kalakaua Intermediate School. King’s talent was noticed at Farrington High School where as a freshman, he played in the award-winning senior band. Named the best high school band in the state, the Farrington Band filled in when the Royal Hawaiian Band was out of town. King performed until the day before his death, playing at the 100th birthday of his high school maestro, Earl Christoph. “He was a guy with a lot of energy,” Baltazar said. “If there was jazz, he was always there. He was a true jazz player and a jazz fan.” In college, King frequented the jazz clubs of New York where the young musician met Dizzy Gillespie—and jumped in and played with the jazz great. “He was not afraid of sitting in,” Baltazar said. “He was not bashful.” Just over 5 feet tall, “He was a little guy playing a lot of horn,” Baltazar said. King was born in Wahiawa in 1924. His parents, Maria Benigna Gomez and Cho Kiong Ha, were of Puerto Rican and Korean descent. Friends, family, local jazz musicians and a Mexican music group King recently played with will perform after his funeral Monday. Visitation is at 6 p.m. with services to follow at 6:30 to 9 p.m. at Diamond Head Mortuary. Private inurnment will be Tuesday at Diamond Head Memorial Park. In addition to his wife, Lilly, King is survived by daughter Cora Y. King, sons Lorrin F. King and Miles T. King, sisters Mary Brillante and Mae King Vause, brother Thomas Cho and several nieces and nephews.        [ SB 02/05/1997]

William McKinley Klein Jr. had a passion for plants and gardens. A fervent collector, prolific writer and avid preservationist, he was able to help others see the value of plants and related research. As executive director of the National Tropical Botanical Garden, which has four gardens in Hawaii and one in Florida, Klein pushed hard to restore and expand the facilities, their collections of rare tropical and native plants, and their scientific research. Klein, 63, died yesterday Feb 12, 1997 of heart failure while attending a series of meetings and a celebration at the Kampong, the Florida garden. Friends say he felt faint while taking his morning walk and was taken to the hospital, where he died at 1:30 p.m. Lucinda Fleeson, development director for the National Tropical Botanical Garden, said Klein was skilled at attracting donors and sparking enthusiasm among his staff. His high energy often left his staff and friends breathless, she said, as he was known to begin work at 4:30 a.m. and had started classes to learn Hawaiian. Klein moved to Kauai in 1994 to  become director of the gardens. He set about reopening the Allerton and Lawai gardens, which had been devastated two years earlier by Hurricane Iniki, added a third garden in Limahuli on the island’s north shore, and reopened the Kahanu Garden on Maui. Before that, he led restoration at Fairchild Tropical Garden in Miami, where nearly 70 percent of the collections were damaged by Hurricane Andrew in 1992. Earlier, he helped transform the Morris Arborteum in Philadelphia into a showcase after raising more than $10 million for extensive renovation and expansion. His career began as a botany instructor at the Colorado State University. He is survived by wife Janet; son Darien, of Atlanta; daughters Jennifer Morrison of Massachusetts, and Melissa and Erica, both of Philadelphia; mother Winifred Klein of Colorado; and two sisters. A memorial service is planned. The family requests contributions to the National Tropical Botanical Garden, P.O. Box 340, Lawai, Hawaii 96765 or the Morris Arboretum, 100 Northwestern Ave., Philadelphia, Pa. 19118.
