George Tai Hee Pai  - He ran a law practice, served as the state’s fifth attorney general, and held the title of district court judge for 18 years. But the role George Tai Hee Pai found most fulfilling was being a husband and a father. “No matter how busy he got, he always made time for his family,” said his wife of 35 years, Jung Hi. Pai died Monday Jul 20, 1998 in Honolulu at the age of 70. “He sacrificed so much for his family,” said his son, Patrick, 32, who lives in Irvine, Calif. “While my sister Beverly was in medical school doing her residency, he would get up at 4 o’clock in the morning to pack a lunch for her.” Pai began serving as a state deputy attorney general in 1967. For five years prior to that, he was an executive with the Kaiser-Hawaii Kai Development Co. He was sworn in as attorney general in 1971, and as a district court judge in 1979. He had established his own law firm with a partner in 1976 and continued private practice while serving as a judge. But Pai never let pressure at work affect his family life or chip away at his sense of humor. “He had a good sense of humor and liked cute jokes,” said Jung Hi. Born and raised in Kaimuki, he graduated from Kaimuki High School, attended the University of Hawaii for two years before graduating from the University of Michigan. He received his law degree from the University of Southern California in 1961. He retired in Aiea last year.

Patt Lopez Patterson  - He was an energetic man of many skills and talents—bus driver, fireman, disc jockey, radio station manager, ad man, columnist, artist. And he always had a smile and a hand for others. Patt Lopez Patterson died Wednesday Jul 15, 1998 at Queen’s Hospital. He was 75. In advertising and public relations, he was president of Patt Patterson and Associates for 17 years and president of Creative Solutions. “He was a ‘nothing is ever going to go wrong in my life’ kind of guy,” said Jack Seigle of Starr Seigle Communications, who knew Patterson for 30 years. “He always wore a button that said ‘Do It’ on his lapel or aloha shirt. “He was a competitor but one of those guys that if you ever needed him, he would be there to help you out.” Patterson came to Hawaii when he was 14. His career included being a firefighter with the Honolulu Fire Department and station manager for KGU Radio. He often took part in the Honolulu Press Club Gridiron Show and wrote a column for the Downtown Planet. In recent years he displayed his artwork in exhibits, such as one called “The Unpredictable Art of Patt Patterson II,” which included photos and collages. Patterson was born in Hanford, Calif., on March 15, 1923. He is survived by his wife, Joy; daughters Ilene Marrotte, Chang Margin, ARLETTE!

David Pietsch - After contracting polio at the age of 27, David T. Pietsch was looking for a new career. Someone suggested working with land titles because it was mostly desk work. Eventually, Pietsch and his partner formed Ti          tle Guaranty of Hawaii, a company that would became Hawaii’s largest and oldest land title company. “It took him a while to learn how to walk again,” said his son, James.  “He could get around in the archives. His legs were not strong, but he could walk. He could never run.” Pietsch, 77, of Lanikai, died yesterday Aug 11, 1998 at home. Pietsch worked for more than 50 years in the land title business and was involved in almost every major real estate transaction in Hawaii, his family said. He also helped found Title Guaranty of Guam after a typhoon in 1964. Disaster officials sought his expertise to enable the federal government to lend disaster relief and rebuilding funds. Pietsch was a director on numerous boards including Castle & Cooke, Maunalani Nursing Center, and the Straub Foundation. He was also a longtime member of the Rotary Club of Honolulu and the Shriners. He was an expert in Hawaiian land issues. “He had great ideas to solving problems and resolving conflicts that you find when you search,” James Pietsch said. “He was very honest and sincere in being able to solve the problem.” Pietsch attended Roosevelt High School and graduated from the University of Hawaii. After graduation, he joined the Honolulu Police Department and was the captain of a mine sweeper protecting Hawaiian waters during World War II. He was working for his father in real estate sales and development when he contracted polio. Pietsch is survived by his wife, Leslie Maunakapu Long; sons David Jr., Michael and James; and nine grandchildren. All three sons work in the family business. “He was a great father. He was a great boss and he was a great friend,” said David Jr. Pietsch was once cited in Sports Illustrated magazine for his cribbage ability and state championships. He also was a fisherman who loved the ocean, and an accomplished musician who loved Hawaiian music and played numerous instruments, including the steel guitar. A memorial service will be held at Thurston Chapel on the Punahou School campus 4 p.m. Friday. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Maunalani Nursing Center or Central Union Church.

Abraham Poepoe Jr. - Government officials remember Abraham Poepoe Jr., a longtime city information officer, as a talented writer who cared about what he put down on paper. To Hula Records owner Don McDiarmid Jr., a friend for more than three decades, Poepoe was a raconteur, “a man of the world who could talk on about any subject forever.” Poepoe, 72, died Friday Aug 7, 1998 after a bout with cancer. Carol Costa, director of the city Office of Information and Complaint, described Poepoe as an exceptional writer and editor who taught her some of the finer points of informational writing. For years, Costa said, he was “the heart and soul of our office” and “never hesitated to grab the phone and answer a citizen’s question.” Mayor Jeremy Harris, in a statement, said: “He helped thousands of people by providing them with accurate and helpful information. Abe provided great customer service before it became our watchword.” Before joining the city in 1972, Poepoe was editor of the Press Newspapers, predecessor to the Sun Press. Prior to that, he was a teacher at Punahou. He retired in 1995, after 23 years with the city. McDiarmid said he and Poepoe became friends when the two were in the Honolulu Press Club in the 1960s. “He was a great conversationalist,” said McDiarmid, recalling that the two would talk story for hours on everything from Hawaiian sovereignty to what Christ would wear if he were alive today. “He was as comfortable in Paris as he was in Honokaa,” McDiarmid said. Poepoe was the brother of Andrew K. Poepoe, Hawaii district director for the U.S. Small Business Administration. He also is survived by son Lindsay Mattox; mother Dorothy E.; brother Ronald H.; sisters Ramona V., Jocelyn Higgins, Lucia Davis and Deborah Ann Sakamoto; and two grandchildren.
