Heine Kamai, 66, helped perpetuate Hawaiian spirit His participation in the Royal Order of Kamehameha was  key interest in life for Heine Ikaika Kamai. His succession to the top state office, alii nui, had him planning for the future at a time when he knew his health was failing. “He was concerned about our plan to go into the next century, how we can help the Hawaiian people and make sure the order is still viable into the 21st century,” said Francis Ching, high talking chief of the order. “He was a quiet and very effective leader. He was a good teacher. He was very strong in his convictions. “He was intent on getting as many people involved as possible and to let it grow . . . to be more visible but in a dignified way,” Ching said. The organization was created in 1863 by King Kamehameha V. As a fraternal society with limited membership, it has not been as politically active nor publicly visible as other Hawaiian community or advocacy organizations. Kamai, 66, died Thursday May 7, 1998 in St. Francis Hospital. He was retired from Honolulu Gas Co. after 39 years and was owner of a corrosion control service, Heine Ikaika Kamai Inc.  “He had a droll sense of humor. He told stories that went on and on,” recalled family friend Meredith Okudara. Kamai was active in his parish, St. Patrick Church, and its school. “He was a real force when he became president of the PTA at St. Patrick’s,” Okudara said. “For many years, meetings were Dullsville. When he took over . . . he was such a stubborn, opinionated man . . . but you know he would be fair. We had standing room only at our meetings.” Kamai’s interests as Hawaiian and Catholic coincided in 1995 when he worked to involve Hawaiian groups in the celebration of the beatification of Father Damien DeVeuster, said Bill Souza, also a member of the Royal Order of Kamehamaha.

Shiro Kashiwa, 85, of Honolulu, Hawaii’s first attorney general and  later a judge with the U.S. Court of Appeals in the nation’s capital, died Friday Mar 13, 1998 in St. Francis Hospice. “Shiro, of course, was a very close friend of mine and one who did a great job as attorney general,” said former Gov. William Quinn. “I appointed him because I needed a good person, and I thought he fit the qualifications very well.” Quinn had worked closely with Kashiwa on a number of things before statehood. “As an attorney general he did a great job,” he said. Kashiwa reviewed the joint operating agreement of the Advertiser and Star-Bulletin that allows the two Honolulu dailies to save costs by combining printing, advertising sales and distribution while keeping ownership, news staffs and editorial policies separate. Kashiwa found no reason to challenge the agreement. Kashiwa was retired as a judge in the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C. His legal career included serving as an associate judge on the U.S.  Court of Claims and earlier as an assistant attorney general under President Nixon. Honors he received included the Order of the Sacred Treasure, with gold and silver star, in 1995 from the government of Japan.  That award cited his achievement as the first American of Japanese ancestry to receive presidential appointments to the top positions he held—and also praised his “good faith effort in adjustments to exclude misinterpretations of law and eliminate misunderstandings between Japan and the United States.” He was named Outstanding Nisei by the Japanese American Citizens League in 1970.  On Jan. 14 of that year, he became the first nisei and the first member of the Hawaii bar to represent the United States before the U.S.  Supreme Court, in arguing an eminent domain case.  Later, he said he considered this appearance the highest honor that could be given any lawyer. Kashiwa was born at Kohala on the Big Island.  He earned his law degree from the University of Michigan in 1936 and practiced law in Honolulu until he became state attorney general.  He served in that post during 1959-62, then returned to private practice until his first federal appointment in 1969. He retired as appeals court judge in 1989. Among his many civic activities, he was 1965-68 president of Honpa Hongwanji Mission of Hawaii. Kashiwa is survived by his wife Mildred, son Gregg, daughter Wendy, brother Genro, sisters Anita Ainge and Judy Kawabata, and two grandchildren. Services will be private.

Edward Kato of Kalaupapa said it was the proudest accomplishment of his life when he took part in the 1995 burial of a relic of Father Damien DeVeuster beside the Kalawao church built by the 19th century missionary.  “I told him, ‘You demonstrate what Damien was in many ways. No  matter what curve ball is thrown at you, you can do your utter best.  You endured with grace and great style,’” said the Rev. Joseph  Bukoski, head of theml6 Edward Kato commission that coordinated  local participation in the beatification of Damien by Pope John Paul   II that year.   Kato, 80, who lived at Kalaupapa since he contracted Hansen’s  Disease at the age of 19, died Sunday Feb 15, 1998 in Hale Mohalu hospital after a  long battle with cancer.  He was retired as manager of the Kalaupapa Store. He was an artist who depicted the place where he lived and the church Damien  built in numerous paintings, most of which he gave away to friends  and acquaintances. And he became a world traveler as soon as the  mandatory quarantine of patients was lifted in the 1960s.   “He tried to touch bases all over the world,” recalled Edward Lau of  Honolulu, Kato’s friend and    fishing companion. “He had a lot of friends all over the world. The  only place he didn’t go was South America and the Middle East. He   was unique for someone who comes from Kalaupapa. No one  traveled, they were afraid to. He kind of spearheaded the idea.” “Ed was one of driving factors that kept the Lions Club going,” Lau  said. Kato was secretary and treasurer of the Kalaupapa chapter of   the service organization for many years. “He always helped the  community, he did all the sign-painting for the community.”   Kato was named the Maui County Outstanding Older American  Man in 1996 in recognition of more than 50 years of volunteer  service.  “He would never talk bad about anyone in all the years I knew him,”  said Lau. “He was generous to a fault, an all-around good guy.”  The Rev. Arsene Daenen, former pastor of St. Francis Church at  Kalaupapa, recalled Kato as “devoted to the church and the church community.” Kato acted as sacristan and served at Mass, and  formerly sang with the choir.  “He knew a lot of the history of the place and liked to talk about that,” said Daenen. “He was always talking about Damien, and  comparing life then and now. He loved Molokai and the settlement.  “He had the soul of an artist, not just painting but music and anything  that pertained to beauty.”  He was not the kind of person to talk about regrets, said his sister,  Janice Kupelian of Honolulu. One of those unspoken  disappointments was in 1994 when Kato was slated to meet the pope and participate in the Damien beatification. The event was postponed at the last moment because the pope was  injured in a fall. By the time the event was rescheduled, he was unable to travel, but was happy with the hometown celebration.   “He was a person who, even with his own pains and hurts, smiled  forth with God’s goodness. I can picture his beaming smile,” said Bukoski.   A funeral Mass will be said at 10:30 a.m. March 5 at St. Pius X  Church in Honolulu. Friends may call after 9 a.m. A memorial Mass  will be held Monday at St. Francis Church in Kalaupapa. His fishing   companions will scatter his ashes in the water off Kalaupapa.  Kato was born on Maui. He is survived by four sisters, Evelyn Ibara,  Martha Ibara, Eleanor Kinoshita, all of Maui, and Janice Kupelian of Oahu, and two brothers, Joseph and Martin Kato.

Gard Kealoha was a dedicated man who would pursue goals with all his heart, said Keahi Allen, executive director of the King Kamehameha Celebration Commission.

"When Gard had a cause, he was very passionate about it," Allen said. "He made sure he knew all the facts and worked toward the goals, whatever the goal may be," Allen said.

He was a very nice person to be around." Kealoha served as OHA trustee between 1982-1986. A month before the 1986 Gener al Elections, Kealoha told the Ka Wai Ola, OHA's newspaper, he wanted to be re-elected because OHA needed leadership based on integrity, honesty and a willingness to work cooperatively to bring positive changes for Hawaiians. "I have worked tirelessly in the past to achieve excellence and pledge to work ceaselessly again to sustain an appreciation for what is po'okela in our collective future," Kealoha said. This summer, Kealoha once again filed papers as a candidate for an at-large seat in next month's OHA elections. Kealoha was a graduate of Punahou School and Whitmore College, and did graduate work at several universities. He worked at Topgallant Publishing Co., First Hawaiian Bank and in public schools.Kealoha was also a public information officer for Alu Like Inc.

Monsignor Charles Kekumano, retired Roman Catholic priest and chairman of the Queen Liliuokalani Trust who helped to write a scathing essay criticizing the Bishop Estate, died today. Kekumano, 78, was diagnosed in September with cancer that had spread to his lungs. He was one of five authors of the “Broken Trust” articles that were first published in the Honolulu Star-Bulletin on Aug. 9 and which sparked the current attorney general’s investigation into the operations of the country’s largest charitable trust. Kekumano died at 9:10 this morning at St. Francis Hospice. At his side were Gladys Brandt, former principal at Kamehameha Schools and another co-author of “Broken Trust”; retired Honolulu Police Chief Francis Keala and his wife; and Ambrose Rosehill and his wife. When his cancer was announced last fall, Kekumano said he wasn’t going to let the illness curtail his hectic schedule. “Broken Trust” co-author Randy Roth said then: “Everyone should have a hero and he’s one of mine. He’s someone I admire greatly, and I hope someday I’ll have one-tenth the wisdom and graciousness he has.” Kekumano was born in Napoopoo near Kona on the Big Island in 1919. He graduated from St. Louis High School in 1937, and attended seminaries in Santa Barbara and Menlo Park, Calif. Kekumano was ordained at Our Lady of Peace Cathedral and elevated to monsignor by Pope John XXIII in 1961.  In 1994, St. Louis High inducted him into its Gallery of Distinguished Achievers. Kekumano had served as chairman of the board of the Liliuokalani Estate and has served on the Honolulu Police Commission, the University of Hawaii Board of Regents and the Aloha United Way board. Four years ago Kekumano was one of 11 members named by the Hawaii Supreme Court to screen applicants for the lucrative job of Bishop Estate trustee.

Kerr, 64, a founding partner with Chun Kerr Dodd Beaman and Wong, died yesterday Aug 20, 1998 in St. Francis Hospice. After being diagnosed with prostate cancer in January 1994, he got involved in efforts to help men with the disease.

Kerr was born in Englewood, N.J. He graduated from Hamilton College in New York and received his law degree from Syracuse University College of Law. He arrived in Hawaii in 1959 as a Navy lawyer.

Robert King Kimball was a local politician, horseman and hotelier with an adventurous spirit who sought out the best that life had to offer.  “He enjoyed life and was always living it, whether in Tahiti or on  Kauai or wherever he happened to be,” Mary Webb Kimball said of her husband of 58 years, who died Sunday Feb 15, 1998 in Queen’s Hospital at age 87.  Robert Kimball, whose nickname was “Kingie,” served in the  Territorial Legislature from 1936 to 1944, was chairman of the territory’s Parks Board for many years, and later cofounded the  Hawaii Visitors Bureau.  The Halekulani Hotel, which Kimball and his brother George sold for  $4.2 million in 1961, was purchased by the Kimball family in 1917.  The family previously owned the old Haleiwa Hotel but moved to  town, leased a private  beach home for $150 a month and converted it into the hotel, which  featured beautiful landscaping and cottages.  “There were a few cottages and big coconut groves and when I first   saw it in 1939. It was like a big garden,” said Mary Kimball, who   came to Hawaii on vacation from Minnesota and never left.  Robert Kimball loved to ride horses and became a well-known local  polo player. “One of my favorite memories is seeing him on horseback in Kahuku  surrounded by kids,” his wife said. “He was teaching them to ride.”  Kimball also was known for his extensive South Seas travels.   After selling the Halekulani, Kimball and his brother built another  hotel, the Waiohai, at Poipu, Kauai. Kimball also pioneered helicopter  tours of the Garden Island’s Na Pali Coast.  Kimball is survived by his wife; daughter, Martha Putnam;  granddaughter, Eliza Jewett, and grandson, Keith Putnam. Services will be held Monday at 3 p.m. at the family’s Oahu   Cemetery gravesite.

Beatrice Krauss, 94, ethnobotanist, author and self-proclaimed  Hawaiian who taught thousands of students to respect the aina,  died yesterday Mar 5, 1998 at her Manoa home.   Her interest and achievements in the plant world began early: She  used to accompany her father, University of Hawaii agriculture  professor Frederick Krauss, to the Manoa campus in 1910.  Krauss Hall is named for her father.  She was the first woman to earn a degree in agriculture at UH and  worked more than 40 years as a researcher at the Pineapple  Research Institute. Paul Weissich, director emeritus of the Honolulu  Botanical Gardens who met her at the institute, said she was “a  great advocate for Hawaiian culture.”  He said she told celebrants at her 80th birthday party, “I may be   haole on the outside, but I’m 100 percent Hawaiian on the inside.”  Weissich said she was interested in Hawaiian native plants and   “anything the Hawaiians used and how they used it.”  She was “sort of an anthropologist” as well as a botanist, he said.  “Sort of a hybrid mix—an ethnobotanist. She was ahead of her  time. Nowadays it’s very popular to be concerned about things   Hawaiian. Thirty-five or 40 years ago, it wasn’t.”  Charles Lamoureux, Lyon Arboretum director, said Krauss had at  least three careers. When the pineapple institute closed, she went  to UH to teach ethnobotany. It was so popular, he said, that it  grew from one to six sections a semester.  And it was all pro bono, he said.  “She was a person of extremely high principles. She wasn’t paid  because she didn’t believe in the loyalty oath and refused to sign  it,” he said.  Lamoureux said Krauss “knew everybody and worked with  anybody, and anybody who came to her with a request she would  help.”  She gave of her time, knowledge and even money, he said.  “She was always helping students of the university.”  She wrote many books.

Kubo, 78, was born at Puukoli, Maui, and had many friends in Hawaii. He was a retired grocer and supermarket owner. His World War II service was with the 298th Infantry, 100th Battalion and Military Intelligence Service. His Saipan bravery earned him the Distinguished Service Cross, the only one awarded a nisei serving in the Pacific. He volunteered to persuade the Japanese soldiers into letting the civilians go. During mop-up operations on the island, Kubo disappeared into the cave for 4-1/2 hours with a pistol under his shirt and boxes of K rations. He returned with the eight unarmed soldiers and 122 men, women and children. Drafted into the Army in June 1941, he served in the 298th Infantry through May 1942 when he became a member of the 100th Battalion. Later, he was transferred to intelligence because of his Japanese language skill. As a language specialist, he was assigned to the 27th Infantry Division, taking part in invasions of Makin, Majuro, Saipan, Tsugenjima and Okinawa. He interrogated prisoners, translated documents and took part in persuading Japanese soldiers, holed up in caves, to surrender. He returned to Hawaii after the war, working for Hunt Foods.  After moving to San Jose, he and his brothers developed the successful Aloha Super Market. He later affiliated with Food Villa, remaining with the chain until his 1984 retirement. He is survived by wife Mary; daughter Jacquie Kubo; son Larry; and two grandchildren.
