Josephine Ka‘uakea Medeiros  - When Josephine Ka‘uakea Medeiros helped visitors make room reservations at the Hotel Hana-Maui, she described not only the room but also the amenities, such as the sweet scent from a nearby plumeria tree. “She was just poetic, just a colorful person,” said Alberta De Jetley, the former publisher of a Hana newspaper. Medeiros, 74, a kumu hula and the hotel’s reservations director and social director for many years, died on April 16, 1997.

Medeiros was a member of church and civic groups, including the Sacred Hearts Society, Soil Conservation Service and the “Na Leo ‘O Hana” choral group. De Jetley, who met Medeiros in 1969, remembers her as having a special touch for flower arrangements. “She said the reason why she could do flowers so well was the flowers talked to her.” She is survived by her husband Leslie; sons Leslie Jr. and William; daughter Mavis Helekahi; brother William Roback Jr.; sisters Louisa Pu, Gladys Sinenci, and Cecelia Park; 15 grandchildren; and 17 great-grandchildren.

Don Metzger  - Gentle and humorous aren’t words normally used to describe executives in Hawaii’s intensely competitive and stressful broadcasting field. But that’s how friends remember Don Metzger, an influential figure in the radio and television broadcast community over the last four decades. Metzger, 65, died Sunday Nov 9, 1997 in Honolulu due to complications from a stroke. “I don’t think I ever saw Don lose his temper, castigate somebody or discipline an employee in front of someone else,” said KHET Executive Director Don Robbs, a longtime friend and one-time colleague.  “In our business, a Don Metzger is a rare individual.” Jack Kellner, another former colleague and now KHON’s director of community affairs, said Metzger “was quick with a smile and a joke.” “I don’t think there ever was anyone he ever came in contact with that didn’t think he was honorable and respectful and had integrity,” Kellner said. Metzger arrived in Hawaii in 1962 and spent 18 years with KGU radio. He rose from account executive to president and general manager over a 10-year period. “He was very innovative as a broadcaster,” said Ray Sweeney, a former radio executive who worked at times with Metzger. “He perfected the idea of high school sports on radio.” During Metzger’s tenure, everyone from Al Michaels to Chuck Leahy to Robbs did play-by-play for KGU. After KGU, he spent time as an account executive and sales manager at KHNL Channel 13, and later was president and general manager of Aloha Broadcasting, owners of KKUA and KQMQ. In 1986, Metzger was picked as general manager and vice president for KFVE, what would come to be known as Hawaii’s fifth television station. He helped locate its facilities, at the Sand Island Access Road site now occupied by KHNL, and hired its first crew. Sweeney, now in public relations, remembers that Metzger was among the first to advocate the use of telephone lines to broadcast mainland sports events instead of shortwave lines, thus saving stations and sponsors money. Kellner noted Metzger played an instrumental role in the state Emergency Broadcast System, us ing his communications expertise to aid the community.  Metzger also was active with the Make A Wish Foundation of Hawaii. Metzger is survived by his wife, Lynne; son Steven; daughter Kristen and sister Barbara Baxter. Private services will be held.         [SB 13/11/1997]

Robert Wakefield Mist took on the greatest challenge of his life at age 60 when a swimming accident left him paralyzed. At the time, Mist was administrator of resort operations for C. Brewer & Co. What he achieved in the final 15 years and five months of his life following the August 1981 accident was more inspiring and rewarding than anything he accomplished in a successful 35-year career as a top business executive. With that stiff upper lip from his British heritage and his inherited warrior strength, he never gave in to feeling sorry for himself, Martha Austin Mist said, referring to her husband of 49 years who died Monday Jan 13, 1997 in Honolulu. He just carried on and his absolutely fine mind kept on working up to the last two weeks, she added. His doctor told me he never saw him depressed. Although he was able to move only his head and neck and needed a respirator to breathe, Mist learned how to work on a personal computer by using a pointer held between his teeth to punch in words. Mist completed 10 unpublished childrens books based on his childhood and an autobiography. Ill remember him as a wonderful, exciting and humorous person who was so adaptable, Martha Mist said. He loved the water, politics and life. Mists family roots in Hawaii date back to 1850, and his grandfather served as King David Kalakauas minister of foreign affairs. He served as chairman of the Republican Partys Hawaii County Committee and later the State Central Committee. Hawaiian Agronomics Co. was among his favorite projects at C. Brewer, his wife said. Survivors include son Robert Stafford Mist of Colorado; daughters June Sullivan and D.C. Eichelberger, and five grandchildren. Services: Friday, 8 a.m., at Outrigger Canoe Club; 4 p.m., St. Andrews Cathedral. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Duke Kahanamoku Foundation, care of the Outrigger Canoe Club, or the Rotary Club of Honolulu.     [SB 14/01/1997]

JOE HARRY MORGAN - The Rev. Joe H. Morgan combined his story as a survivor of the Pearl Harbor attack with his vocation as a Baptist preacher to give hundreds of USS Arizona Memorial visitors a unique perspective on history. He recalled vivid details of the attack on Dec. 7, 1941, when he was a young Navy ordnanceman on Ford Island: overcoming his terror, firing back with the machine gun in a grounded PBY Catalina patrol bomber. Several survivors tell their tales as volunteers at the memorial center, and Morgan took his turn every Thursday for the past 12 years. Morgan continued the storytelling until two weeks before his death Friday at the age of 80. His story had a second chapter, about his encounter 15 years later with the Japanese commander who led the air attack. Mitsuo Fuchida, who converted to Christianity, spoke here and, in a meeting with Morgan, offered a personal apology. "My dad just felt that any bitterness or anger he had felt left him," said son Robert Morgan. "They became good friends. "It is a very healing story. At the memorial, people come and get so angry. His story helps them work through it all the way to the end. There are grown men who have harbored bitterness for a long time. Somehow he reaches them.  "After Sept. 11, we tried to make the connection with the (Pearl Harbor) attack. We told them, we know you feel some of the terrorists are hopeless, but we need to pray for them. Hearts can be changed and enemies can become friends."  Robert Morgan, also a minister, used an interview format to help his father continue to tell the story, despite failing health and memory. "This is what he lived for." Terry Dorman, volunteer coordinator at the memorial said "Joe was like our roving ambassador. He would put on his talk, usually on the waterfront lanai. Joe was a fatherly person, a kind, gentle and giving individual. He was always so optimistic, that is what he conveyed." After World War II, Morgan earned college and seminary degrees and accepted a position as pastor of Wailuku Baptist Church. In 1958, he returned to the Navy as a chaplain and served for 10 years, including two tours in Vietnam. He later became pastor of First Baptist Church in Waimanalo and led services in Mililani before the Baptist church there was organized, said O.W. Efurd, director of the Hawaii Pacific Baptist Conference. Morgan was born in Tyler, Texas. He married the former Blanche Fernandes in 1962. She died last year. Survivors include sons Harry and Robert; daughter Clarissa Trammell; nine grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. A funeral service will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday at Olivet Baptist Church. Friends may call after 9:30 a.m. Morgan's story "From Fear to Forgiveness" can be seen on his Web site www.joemorgan.org and videos and brochures are also available. The family suggests that donations may be made to support the dissemination of his story by writing to Joe H. and Blanche J. Morgan Trust, 1212 Nuuanu Ave., Suite 4008, Honolulu 96817.      [SB 29/10/2002]

Aldyth Morris - Beatrice Krauss remembers the characters in Aldyth Morris’ plays well. “The sensitivities of her characters were so wonderful,” Krauss said. “I think her ‘Liliuokalani’ was very, very impressive. But, of course, the one that impressed me the most was ‘Damien’ ... I think we were so lucky in Hawaii to have had her here.” Morris died April 24, 1997  in Pasadena, Calif. She was 95. Krauss, a devotee of Hawaiian culture, recalls Morris as a quiet person of dignity and charm. In 1978, a video of “Damien,” a one-character play, was broadcast nationwide by the Public Broadcasting System. It won a prestigious Peabody Award. The play reached the notice of the Vatican, and Morris received a short letter from the pope. The play has been translated into Japanese, Flemish, French and Spanish. Morris wrote two more one-character plays—“R.L.S. (Robert Louis Stevenson)” and “Captain James Cook.” Both plays later were published by the University of Hawaii Press in 1995. When Morris left Hawaii several years ago, it was a tremendous loss, Krauss said. “Of course, she’s left a wonderful memorial in her work.” Regarding “Damien,” Krauss said: “I always admired what Damien had done.  He (Damien) was always sort of a hero to me. ... I just thought the way she handled it was so very, very beautiful. It could have been a very hum-drum type of thing, but she handled his whole life in such a wonderful way.” She saw “Damien” three times, she said, “and each time, I was as impressed as ever.” Others have pointed out that Morris could weave elements of people’s lives together into stories of clear but unusual structure that would grasp and enthrall her audiences, with words and metaphors that engaged and then penetrated, engaging emotions and hearts, each time a work was read or viewed. Morris was born in Logan, Utah. She met her husband, Ray Morris, in the 1920s in San Francisco. They married in 1929, moving to Hawaii shortly after.  Her husband, an architect, died in 1988. She remained here until 1993 when she moved to Pasadena. Her 63 years here included time as an editor, then managing editor, of the University of Hawaii Press. She also was an editor at the East-West Center. Morris is survived by son Richard V.; sister Frances Fagerlund; three grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren. Private family services were held. A memorial service will take place at 10 a.m.  May 24 at St. Clement’s Church, where her ashes will be placed beside her husband’s ashes.       [SB 14/05/1997]
