Soichi Sakamoto, the famous swim coach who inspired ordinary Hawaii  children to become Olympic champions, died last Saturday Aug 2, 1997 at the age of 91.  “Olympics first, Olympics always,” was Sakamoto’s rallying motto, which,  according to one of his former students, he first used when he formed the  “Three Year Swim” Club in Puunene, Maui, in 1937.  John Tsukano, now 72, a charter member of the club, said Sakamoto asked  members to sign a contract in which they agreed to stay in the club for three  years.  Club members also could not drink, smoke or have serious romantic  involvements. “Everything was for the Olympics,” Tsukano said.  “We were just kids from the plantation, but he made us believe that we could  succeed.”  And they did. Some of the best swimmers in Hawaii were coached by  Sakamoto, including Olympic gold and silver medalists Bill Woolsey and Ford  Konno, gold medalist Bill Smith and bronze medalist Evelyn Kawamoto  Konno.  Sakamoto also trained many national swim champions, including Keo  Nakama, Jose Balmores, Bunmei Nakama, Halo Hirose and Ivanelle Hoe.  He had the ability to spot talent and see their future, said Woolsey, winner at  the 1952 Helsinki and 1956 Melbourne Olympics. For Woolsey, Sakamoto  was a “counselor, a psychologist, a father (figure),” and more.   Woolsey was 15 when he started training with Sakamoto and just 17 when he  won his first Olympic medal. Every Sunday, Woolsey said, the “coach” would  spend individual time with each of his swimmers. “He would counsel us about   our education, our families, swimming and our lives,” Woolsey said.  Hirose, another member of the club, credits Sakamoto for an innovative breast stroke, a kicking machine and the flip turn free-style swimmers use today.  Friends said Sakamoto switched from coaching track and field to swimming  because he saw its potential. He coached at the University of Hawaii from 1945 to 1961.  Sakamoto, who according to his friends was not a good swimmer himself, was  inducted into the International Swimming Hall of Fame. Hawaii swimmers  hold an annual meet on Maui in his honor.  He is survived by sons Raymond and Donald, daughters Jancie Lam and Rene  Takata, 12 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.  Services will be at Nuuanu Mortuary at 11 a.m. Thursday; visitation is 10 a.m.  to 12:30 p.m. The family will hold a private burial.           [SB 09/08/1997]

Sam Sanford, a former radio disc jockey and restaurateur known for his pranks and outrageous sense of humor, died Saturday Dec 13, 1997 in his home. He was 68. Sanford came here in 1957, and his name soon became a household word. He entertained Hawaii’s morning radio listeners over the next two decades. He was half of the Sanford and Cook Show on KHAI radio station that broadcast out of the Royal Hawaiian Hotel in the 1960s. He later moved to station KGU. “He said anything he wanted to say without being profane—a practical joker to the max,” said close friend and one-time business partner Bob Bowen. “He was a very comic person who lived life to the fullest.” His wife, Sheila Sanford, said he died at 1:30 a.m. Saturday in his home. He had been suffering from liver disease since May. “He was quite a character, a legend in his own time here,” she said. “He was the love of my life, one of the most intelligent and compassionate men I’ve ever known.” Sanford also ran Sam’s Place, an unobtrusive restaurant on Merchant Street. “In radio as a DJ, you intimately share peoples’ lives with them. You’re with them when they’re shavin’, showerin’ ... You’re eatin’ breakfast with them,” Sanford said in a 1975 interview. “So I have to reciprocate. I have my restaurant where people can come and share time with me.” Sanford, originally a New Yorker, led a colorful life. From an affluent family, he was thrown out of Yale in his sophomore year. He later joined the Air Force, and he ended up running a bar in the Virgin Islands and then a hotel in Haiti. He was also a newswriter for CBS. Sanford also hosted a radio show called Sounds of the Pacific, which played all Hawaiian music. Ray Sweeney, another close friend and former business associate, said Sanford was part of Hawaii’s version of the “Merry Pranksters” of the 1960s who played jokes on one another. Sweeney and Bowen both recalled the time a friend dumped a box full of baby roosters in his studio during a live radio show. Sanford also is survived by  wife Sheila; a son, Jacob O’Connell of Pennsylvania, and a daughters, Camilla of San Francisco and Sydney. A service is tentatively scheduled for sunset Saturday at Sanford’s home. Sanford’s ashes will be scattered in the sea, his wife said. The Hawaiian Memorial Park Mortuary is making arrangements.           [SB 20/12/1997]

That’s why I say he’s one of a kind, because we all have faults. Dick seemed to be the exception.” Devens was corporation counsel in the first Fasi administration from 1969 to 1973. Earlier he and Sharpless were in private practice in the same law firm. Born in Springdale, Pa., Sharpless was a descendant of John Sharples of Cheshire, England, who came to Pennsylvania with its founder William Penn in 1682.

He was admitted to practice law in Pennsylvania and eventually California, Hawaii and federal courts up to the U.S. Supreme Court. He entered the Army in 1942, becoming judge advocate, Army Corps of Engineers, Honolulu. After World War II and legal work in California, he returned to Honolulu in 1948, eventually winning appointment as a territorial deputy attorney general in 1949, later becoming assistant attorney general and attorney general. In 1957, he returned to private practice. In 1969, he was appointed managing director by Fasi. He became city corporation counsel in 1973 and managing director again in 1975. He was appointed corporation counsel once again by Mayor Fasi in 1978, remaining in that post until his 1980 retirement. He moved to Chapel Hill in 1981. Active in the Bar Association of Hawaii, later called the Hawaii State Bar Association, he was elected its president in 1960. His time in Hawaii also included many civic activities and positions with the Episcopal Church. He took up similar activities after moving to Chapel Hill. He received appointment as assistant to the town attorney of Chapel Hill in 1984, remaining in that post until September 1993. He is survived by wife Jean S.; son Richard K.

Valentine Andrew Siefermann -  He arrived on Hawaii shores as a young bomber pilot  in World War II. He left Hawaii shores as a distinguished and respected major general of the U.S. Air  Force. Valentine Andrew Siefermann, 77, of Kaneohe, died on Tuesday Dec 30, 1997, exactly 16  years after he retired as major general under Govs. John Burns and George Ariyoshi. The former adjutant general of Hawaii and director of state Civil Defense also had a love of motorcycles that grew from following one of his son’s hobbies. Siefermann became the leader of the pack to form Hawaii Motorsports  Association Inc. with a membership of more than 1,000. He also cleared the  way for the state’s first offroad motorcycle track in the Waialee area near Kahuku. Described as “gung-ho,” Siefermann served as the brigadier general of the  Hawaii Air National Guard. He pioneered the idea for all Air National Guard  units in the nation to report to the major air command. This allowed the Air Guard units to move into action faster without the red tape of command  delays. Siefermann was born in New York. He was commissioned in the Army Air Corps in 1942, and piloted fighters and bombers in the Pacific campaign during World War II. He left active service in 1946 to be one of the first to join the Hawaii Air National Guard. Siefermann led the state Air National Guard as its first commander. And in 1953, he earned the rank of brigadier general.   He worked with the U.S. Air Force to implement the system that enabled the Air National Guard to assume the Air Force’s role in air defense of Hawaii. His  system was adopted nationally eight years later. The Hawaii Air National Guard operated both the fighter and radar units in  Hawaii’s air defense system, and still does to this day. Siefermann’s career escalated to adjutant general of Hawaii and Director of State Civil Defense for Gov. Burns in 1973. He then was promoted to rank of  major general and served under Burns and later Gov. Ariyoshi until his  retirement, Dec. 30, 1981.  In addition to family and career, Siefermann became involved in a wide range  of business and community activities, including president of Hui Koolau, anorganization covering the area from Heeia to Kualoa. He is survived by his wife, Pauline; sons Franklin and Dickson Smith and James, Robert and John Siefermann; daughters Valerie Way and Gail Lawrence, 16 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. Services will be at 12:45 p.m. Monday at Kailua United Methodist Church.  Visitation will be from noon. Burial will be at the Hawaii State Veterans Cemetery in Kaneohe.

Dr. Olaf Skinsnes, 80, who founded the leprosy lab at Leahi Hospital and was also professor of pathology at the University of Hawaii, died Dec. 21, 1997 in Corvallis, Ore. He provided data for the Citizens Committee on Leprosy in the latter   ’60s that brought changes in the law to help bring about more humane treatment for leprosy patients in Hawaii. Having spent the first 18 years of his life in China, he and wife Elizabeth retired there in 1985. They moved from there to Corvallis in August 1995.  Born in Sinyang, Honan, China, the son of medical missionaries originally from Norway, Skinsnes was educated at Kikungshan American School,  Honan, China; St. Olaf College, Northfield, Minn.; and University of Chicago  School of Medicine. He came to the University of Hawaii in 1967, remaining on its faculty until his 1984 retirement. His active later days in China included serving as an honorary  faculty member at Zhongshan Medical College in Guangzhou (Canton). His wife, a nurse, was an honorary teacher of medical English there.  “My father always felt China was his home,” said daughter Anwai Law. Of the many awards he received, the one he prized most was the Friendship   Medal he received  from the Chinese government in 1992, she said. When the Citizens Committee on Leprosy released its report in 1969,    Star-Bulletin editorial said the report made an irrefutable case that a victim of  leprosy “should be no longer an outcast, no longer a leper, no longer a  scourge.”  The committee said unanimously that days of involuntary isolation for leprosy  patients must end.  “Hawaii owes a giant mahalo to each of its members,” the editorial said. Though not an original member, Dr. Skinsnes later served on the Citizens  Committee on Leprosy.  “For me personally, he was always very supportive of my work,” daughter  Anwai said. “He got me interested in researching the history of Kalaupapa. I’m  now involved in an international organization called IDEA which is an  advocacy organization for people affected by leprosy.”  Her father also encouraged Ph.D candidates at UH, the University of Chicago  and in China, she said. “He just really worked to provide people with opportunities so that they could  develop their interests.”  He edited an international journal on leprosy and significantly advanced   knowledge as a pioneer in research on isolation and cultivation of the leprosy  bacillus. His career included service on the faculty of the University of Chicago  School of Medicine in 1959-67.  He is also survived by his wife, son Kasper; another daughter, Fredrikke   Scollard; foster children Virginia M. Whitcomb and Barbara M. Scott; sisters  Phoebe Holm and Ruth Jacobson; and three grandchildren.  A service took place in Corvallis Dec. 27, attended by professional associates who came from as far away as Japan. A memorial service may be held in   Hawaii at a later date. The ashes eventually will be left in three different   places, including the Pearl River in China.

Frank Su‘a was more than a warrior in the war on illegal drugs. “He was a crusader,” police Maj. Kenneth Tano said of Su‘a, retired commander of the Honolulu Police Department’s Narcotics/Vice Division who died Tuesday Nov 4 1997 at his Kailua home. “What was notable about him was the intensity and commitment he had to educating the public about the ills and harms of drugs,” added Tano, current head of the Narcotics/ Vice Division. “I remember he’d be out there talking to the public night after night.” Su‘a, 61, retired as a police major in 1989 after 40 years in local law enforcement, including 32 years with HPD. After retiring from HPD, he worked for former U.S. Attorney Daniel Bent as liaison to local law enforcement and served as Hawaii coordinator of the Western States Information Network, a narcotics intelligence operation. In the late 1980s, Su‘a put together a slide presentation on illegal drugs and often talked to community groups on his own time. “He did it because of the kids,” Patricia Su‘a said of her husband’s commitment to educating the public. “He didn’t want drugs to get to them. “He said as long as he was alive, he would fight the battle,” she added. “As often as people called, he’d go out.” Bent recalled Su‘a’s dedication to the community. “Frank was an outstanding law-enforcement officer but more importantly, he was an outstanding person,” Bent said.  “He was totally committed to the community and spent a considerable amount of personal time to make things better. “Frank was a tireless warrior who never waivered from the one goal he had, which was education,” Tano said. Su‘a was also active in the Windward community as a coach. The St. Louis High School graduate coached baseball and Bobby Sox softball and spent 18 years in Pop Warner football with the Kainalu and Kalaheo programs. Besides his wife, Su‘a is survived by daughters Cynthia Greig, Carol Su‘a-Godinet, Nani Vegas and Patti Kapoi; mother Beatrice McBrayer; brothers Larry Su‘a and Bernard Mori; sisters Isabel Lee and Donna Ho; and 11 grandchildren.
