John “Bully” Tavares  - Moiliili native John “Bully” Tavares lived across the street from a “field of dreams” where he coached youth baseball for nearly half his life. “He used to buy gloves and shoes for kids who couldn’t afford to buy their own,” Conrad Passas Sr. said, referring to Tavares, longtime Moiliili Vikings Athletic Club coach who died Saturday Mar 1, 1997 at age 69. “He was a helluva guy.” The nickname came from his grandmother—because he weighed 14 pounds at birth—but Tavares was anything but a bully. “He was a low-key person who really enjoyed working with kids,” said retired Punahou School teacher and coach David Eldredge, who also coached in the Vikings’ program. Tavares, who lived on the corner of Isenberg and Young streets, returned home from work one day in 1962 and saw a sad group of 15 youngsters sitting together at Moiliili Field. They had just been cut from the Vikings’ baseball team. Tavares and two of his friends volunteered to coach the group and his first Viking team finished third in their Police Activities League division that season. “John always taught his players that baseball was like life,” Passas said. “You never quit until the final pitch crosses the plate into the catcher’s glove.” Tavares’ teams dominated PAL’s Pony (ages 13-14) level in the 1970s, winning eight titles and finishing second twice.  His teams won four more titles in the ’80s before Tavares left to coach junior varsity baseball at St. Louis School from 1990-94. Survivors include his wife, Dora; son Gregory; daughter Devie Ann Montanano; brother Walter “Sonny” of Las Vegas; sister Dorothy Loando, and four grandchildren. Wake: 6-9 p.m. March 13 Oahu Cemetery Chapel. Graveside service: 9 a.m. March 14 at Hawaii State Veterans Cemetery in Kaneohe. Aloha attire.

Jonathan Tennyson —Electric car builder Jonathan Tennyson had worn a full beard for at least a decade, but in recent years he had allowed it to get longer and bushier, emphasizing his hippie image. It wasn’t until recently that friends discovered that he’d been using it to hide the cancerous tumor growing on his neck, said business associate Tony Locricchio. Tennyson died Monday Apr 21, 1997. He was 52. Locricchio called Tennyson a world-recognized leader of solar electric vehicle design. “He became the encyclopedia that people from around the world would call,” Locricchio said. From across the nation, calls have been coming into Suntera Solar Electric Chariot Co. on the Hamakua Coast, where Tennyson was president, pledging to continue his work, said Locricchio, the company’s vice president. Tennyson began his career studying business at Duquesne University in Indiana on a golf scholarship, Locricchio said. A career in marketing followed in Florida, where he also experimented with everything from propane to steam to run cars.  In 1981, Tennyson moved to Hamakua on the Big Island, teaming with hair care products manufacturer John Paul Mitchell. They and other friends lived at a solar-powered farm above Paauilo. Until his death in the late 1980s, Mitchell bankrolled Tennyson’s experiments including the Mana La car that entered the 1987 trans-Australia solar race. In 1993, the U.S. Department of Defense provided the state with $5 million, part of which was supposed to go to Suntera for three- wheeled “C-mobiles.” Tennyson also turned his attention to smoke-belching motorscooters, especially in Asian cities, which produce at least eight times as much pollution as cars. China representatives discussed the problem with Tennyson, who turned to designing an electric scooter that would sell for less than $1,000. When he developed cancer about two years ago, he said nothing and sought no treatment, remembering his friend Mitchell’s losing battle with the disease. “He was very quiet but also very hardheaded,” Locricchio said. “He had an agenda. He had a program. He knew that he had little time to get what he had in his head out.” Among Tennyson’s projects were setting up solar car construction teams at Konawaena High and other schools. “I saw him as an incredible visionary as well as an entrepreneur,” said Konawaena teacher Bill Woerner. Woerner said he took dozens of students to Tennyson’s farm to look at alternate energy projects. “He influenced and changed the life of a lot of students on the island,” Woerner said. Tennyson is survived by his long-time companion, Lisa Keiler, and four children, Amy, Brett, Rosie and Leilani. A service will be at 1 p.m. Sunday at Tennyson’s farm at Paauilo. A gathering will follow at the company facility in Honokaa.      [SB 25/04/1997]

Primitivo Torres  - His hands were strong, tempered by years of laboring in the fields to make a dream come true. A better life to Primitivo Torres meant an education for his seven children, and all of them got the opportunity to attend college. Today, two sons are doctors and another is a food-beverage manager. One daughter is a nurse, another is a medical technologist, a third teaches school and a fourth is an artist-cosmetologist. The third generation, which includes 16 grandchildren, already includes a doctor and an architect. They are all a fitting tribute to Torres, who died March 24, 1997  at age 87, and his wife of 60 years, Dionicia. “I remember my father driving us to Kona on weekends to pick coffee for $50,” Natividad Lagaso said. “My parents always did good honest work and saved money. “When it came time for us to go to college, they had the finances ready to us,” she added. “My mother and father believed education was important and they stuck to that belief.” Primitivo Torres was honored in 1986 on the 40th anniversary of Filipino immigration to Hawaii for “embodying the ideals of the sakada (Filipino immigrant) who came to Hawaii in pursuit of a dream and in search of a better life for himself and for his family.” Torres immigrated from Candon, Ilocos Sur, Philippines. He worked in the Big Island sugar fields from 1946 to 1959. After being laid off, Torres brought his family to Oahu and became a farm worker in Kaaawa. “We had a small garden and used to sell the extra vegetables for extra money,” Lagaso recalled. “My mother used to sew plantation clothing and sell it.” Torres worked as a groundskeeper at Hawaiian Memorial Park and the Pali Golf Course before retiring in 1973. He enjoyed golfing, gardening, woodcrafting and basket weaving during his retirement years. “My father was really good with his hands and that’s one reason I think all of us are so good at crafts,” Lagaso said. Other survivors include sons Ignacio, Mariano and Sam; daughters Pacita Delos Reyes, Tarcila Harp of Willmington, Calif., and Ignacia Flegab, and five great-grandchildren. Memorial services: 7:30 p.m. April 11 and 10 a.m. April 12 at Borthwick Mortuary. Burial to follow at Hawaiian Memorial Park.

She published a letter to the editor of the Star-Bulletin when she was Hawaii Literacy president in 1989. “Though the majority of illiterates are good citizens, the inability to read makes people turn to drugs or crime as a way out of problems,” she wrote. “You can read this. Help someone who cannot xxx ” Born in New Jersey, Trapido graduated in home economics from Douglass College in New Brunswick in 1941 and taught home economics in Newark from 1942 to 1949.

Guy On-Li Tseu performed in the shadows, a talented guitarist and arranger who was better known to his peers in Hawaiian entertainment than the general public. “He was the kind of guy who helped a lot of others succeed,” entertainer Keith Haugen said, referring to Tseu, who died Oct. 22, 1997  at age 41. “If you listen to Moe Keale’s (1996 CD) ‘Imagine,’ his guitar playing is absolutely fantastic. “Guy was a side man in many other groups, so those in the business knew and respected his talent,” Haugen added.  “He had his ups and downs when leading his own groups, but Guy was a great talent.” Tseu was attending McKinley High School when Haugen first heard him singing at Waikiki Beach. He began performing with Haugen and his wife, Carmen, in 1981. “Guy was with us on everything we’ve recorded,” Haugen said. “He had a knack for listening to someone else’s composition and arranging it to get the total sound.” Tseu, who grew up in Kakaako, loved playing guitar as much as his father did. James Y.S. Tseu taught his son how to play the guitar at a young age. “Music was his life,” said Naomi Serdinia, Tseu’s wife. Tseu’s own groups included Ka Aina, and the Heritage Band. Besides the Haugens and Keale, Tseu was also associated with Cyril Pahinui, Jake Hoopai, Keao Low, Robi Kahakalau, Makana Hou, Greg Sardinha, Kanelau, Mike Seta, Kevin Kaulili, Iaukea Bright and Ezra Johnson. He is survived by son, Mark Kekai Tseu, and daughter, Jessica Mele Tseu of Memphis; mother Rosita Tseu; brother, James, and sisters Jaymie Miller, Richelle Yong, Val Sonoda, and Sheril Paishon.
