Kam Tai Lee, the last treasurer of the Territory of Hawaii and first treasurer of the State of Hawaii, died Oct. 15, 1997  in Aiea. He was 92. From 1937 to 1943, he also served five sessions as a member of the territorial House of Representatives. A Republican, he introduced legislation for the first Unemployment Compensation Act and a Territorial Scholarship Act. “Kam Tai was a very genial person,” recalled Edward Greaney, former Honolulu newspaper columnist and retired state official. Lee managed the territorial treasurer’s office just before statehood, at a time when new capital was coming into Hawaii, Greaney said. For example, the tycoon Henry J. Kaiser was here, he said. “New investment was coming in, in anticipation, I believe, of statehood triggering better economic times,” Greaney said. Lee resigned as treasurer shortly after Hawaii became a state. Friends said he wanted to stay on, but resigned when he learned Gov. William Quinn had someone else in mind. Lee was born in Waikane. He received his early education at Waiahole School and at Mid-Pacif ic Institute, graduating from the University of Hawaii in 1929. After graduation, Lee worked briefly as editor of an English section of a Chinese-language newspaper and then took employment with the Service Cold Storage Co. for two years. He was with Liberty Bank of Honolulu from 1934 to 1953. He also served as trustees for the Blood Bank of Hawaii and the Honolulu Community Chest. Additionally, he belonged to the Honolulu Police Reserve and the Hawaii National Guard in World War II. Lee is survived by wife Helen; daughters Marcia Lau and Betsy Styskal; and sons Jan and Dane.

Randolph Martin “Randy” Lee Jr.  - A taste of old Hawaii charm that lured resident regulars as well as returning visitors was the hallmark of hotel and restaurant executive  He was general manager of the prehigh-rise Halekulani Hotel for 16 years and owner of the Willows Restaurant for 13 years before its 1993 closing. Lee, 65, died Monday Sep 8, 1997 in St. Francis Hospice. Friends didn’t wait for the eulogy to share their memories and anecdotes about the gracious innkeeper. They prepared a memory book of remembrances and vignettes for a benefit tribute last year sponsored by friends when they learned of his struggle with cancer and medical bills. “The outpouring of love was just unbelievable,” said Dick Rodby, president of Kemoo Farms. “He was Hawaii’s Princess Diana - he touched so many lives.” Entertainer Nalani Olds said that despite his frail health, Lee “could not help acting the gracious host. He was tired but he never let up on being cordial, he wanted to stand up to greet everyone. “He always had the knack to make people feel welcome and special,” Olds said.  “One of his qualities, when he engaged you in conversation, he only spoke to you. He was really interested, he remembered what you said, he remembered your children by name.” What kamaainas and visitors remember best is the “kamaaina luncheon” that Lee instituted at the old Halekulani, reincarnated as the “poi luncheon” at the Willows, the setting for many people’s special celebrations. The format was Hawaiian food served with class and Hawaiian entertainment with impromptu special appearances by well-known entertainers. “Those luncheon shows were more like a family luau, not a show,” said Rodby. “He got me started doing them at Kemoo; Randy was more refined - ours were more Haleiwa style.” Olds said she was 16 when she began dancing hula at the Halekulani oceanside shows, and numerous other entertainers were given a start by Lee. Under Lee’s administration, cuisine at the Halekulani restaurants and the Willows received awards from gourmet and travel magazines. He was honored by local restaurant and hotel associations. “When things were going good, the training table for St. Louis (athletes) was the Willows. They could go there and have a meal anytime,” Olds recalled. Lee was a 1950 graduate of St. Louis High School. He earned a bachelor’s degree in social sciences at Georgetown University. Before joining the Halekulani, he worked at Hawaiian Airlines, Hotel Hana on Maui and the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel on the Big Island. He is survived by his wife, Sunny Jean; sons Randolph M. III, Michael, Jon David and Peter; daughter Lori Anne; and seven grandchildren. A Mass will be said at 1 p.m. Monday at Star of the Sea Church. Friends may call after noon. Inurnment will be private.

Alan “Turkey” Love, longtime Waikiki beach boy, died yesterday Feb 10, 1997, not knowing of recent controversy over the removal of his beach concession at Kahanamoku Lagoon.  Launa Love said she never told her 77-year-old husband of the dispute while he    was in Kaiser Hospital with pneumonia.  “(Yesterday) was the day that they told us to get off the beach, but we had  lawyers, so we didn’t have to go,” she said, adding lawyers Richard Gronna and  John Goemans are helping her.  “Hopefully, things will work out for the best, and I’ll still be able to operate   down there in Turkey’s name,” Launa Love said. “He was so much full of fun  and life, and he loved the old Hawaiian ways,” she said. “He was a wonderful   father, husband and friend.”  A Japanese firm now owns the recently closed Waikikian Hotel and Tahitian   Lanai, and Aston Hotels and Resorts helps look after the property.   Aston said the longtime beach concession offering kayaks, pedal boats and air  floats would have to go, and news stories brought out community support to  keep the beach concession in place.  Love had operated the concession for over a quarter-century under an informal agreement with the previous owners.   Love would arrive at the beach concession at 7 a.m. seven days a week. His   freckles, said to resemble spots on a turkey egg, earned him his nickname.  His boyhood idol was Sam Kahanamoku, Duke Kahanamoku’s brother. “I  learned everything from Sam,” he had said. “I watched him all the time.”   Love grew up in Waikiki and became a part of the golden era that brought famous celebrities to the famous beach. “Those were the coat-and-tie days,” he  later said. “And before that there were the hat, coat and tie days.”  “He’s definitely one of the legendary old-time Waikiki beach boys,” said Grady Timmons, author of the book “Waikiki Beachboy.”  Love became Henry Kaiser’s beach boy when Kaiser opened the Hawaiian  Village, Timmons said. “I think he spent about 50 years on the beach.”   Before moving to the lagoon, he was a beach boy fronting the Royal Hawaiian  and Moana hotels, Timmons said. “He was known as one of Waikiki’s best  canoe steersman.”  His sister was Winona Love, the famous hula dancer, and he had a brother on  the beach known as “Porky” Love, both of whom preceded him in death,  Timmons said. Love also is survived by daughters Tisha and Winona Love. A public service will take place between Hilton Hawaiian Village and Kahanamoku Lagoon at noon Saturday. Friends are encouraged to bring their surfboards, canoes and boats. Following the service, the ashes will be scattered at sea.

Ellen Chun Lum was an accomplished oil painter who designed the original prints for what came to be known as “aloha shirts.” “I think she’d rather be remembered as a landscape oil painter,” Arthur Lum said, referring to his mother, who died Feb. 22, 1997 at her Honolulu home. She was 82. “To make a living, she had to do commercial art,” he added. In 1936, Ellen Lum’s hand-painted designs of the malolo (flying fish), kihikihi (Moorish Idol fish), a Hawaiian man fishing at night by torchlight and an abstract tapa print were transferred onto Fuji silk short-sleeve shirts and sold exclusively by King-Smith Clothiers for $1.95 apiece. Ellen’s brother, Ellery Chun, called them “aloha shirts” and registered the name. The primary colors of the original shirts were brown, black, navy blue, cobalt blue and green. Contemporary versions of the original prints—especially malolo and kikikihi— are featured on shirts today. “If she hadn’t done the first production runs, I just wonder what we would be looking at today,” said Arthur Lum, a Punahou School graduate like his mother. Ellen Lum earned a degree in home economics from the University of Hawaii the same year aloha shirts made their debut. She was, however, very interested in art and fashion design. Encouraged by artists Millard Sheets and Huc-Mazelet Luquiens, Lum attended to Chouinard School of Art in California. Her paintings have been on display at the Honolulu Academy of Arts. Lum, however, had to become a working artist to pay bills. She bought the family clothing business founded by her father, Chun Kam Chow, from Ellery in 1950 and relocated King-Smith Sportswear to Kalakaua Avenue.  Lum ran the business until her retirement in 1963. Other survivors include a sister, Wai Chee Yee. Private services have been held.
