"The most controversial matter was when he had to dismiss Tom Okuda, based on the outcome of his jury trial and appeal. It was a tough thing to do because of Tom's long service," Namuo recalled. Tom "Fat Boy" Okuda, former deputy courts administrator and Traffic Violations Bureau head, was convicted of traffic-ticket fixing in 1989. His role as a supporter of prominent Democratic politicians brought scrutiny for years before that by the media, the community watchdog organization Common Cause and a court-appointed citizens panel. Tanaka directed significant restructuring of jobs and responsibilities within the 1,700-employee Judiciary system after Okuda's dismissal. Namuo said it was done without public fanfare. "Irwin was not one for the limelight." Namuo said Tanaka is credited for the updated telephone system. "It sounds routine, but it is one of the initiatives that Irwin adopted to get the Judiciary an up-to-date system." The choice to use a different telephone vendor than the state administration became a controversy, the subject of legislative hearings.  Tanaka retired in 1993 when former state Chief Justice Herman Lum retired. He had served from 1969 to 1983 as director of the State Law Enforcement and Juvenile Delinquency Planning Agency, appointed by Gov. John A. Burns to administer the tide of federal funding for law enforcement programs. He had spent several years with the Department of Education working in programs for dropouts, disadvantaged and special-education students. He was born in Honolulu. After serving in the U.S. Army, Tanaka earned bachelor's and master's degrees in social work from Michigan State University. He is survived by his wife, Mae F.; sons Keith E., Darrel T. and Lowell I.; daughters Irwina-Mae Lee and Dee-Ann Nishioka; brother Gary; sisters Valerie Manner, Linda Stapleton and Myrna Takasaki; and eight grandchildren.

Edwin N. Thomas, Hawaii businessman known for his “Big 88” surplus stores and a philanthropist, died Sunday Jan 4, 1998 in Kaneohe. He was 88. In recent years, he donated time and effort to charitable activities, including the Edwin Thomas Home shelter, 41 S. Beretania St., donating $550,000 for its purchase.  He also started the Thomas Foundation, later renamed the Nova Foundation, to benefit victims of Alzheimer’s disease. “He always had a soft spot in his heart for people who were afflicted with disease or hardship,” said grandson Randall Worsley. “He always had a saying, ‘There but for the grace of God go I,’ ” Worsley said. “He wanted to give back to the community that helped him become successful.”Born in Craigmont, Idaho, Thomas spent his childhood in Lewiston, Idaho, moving to the San Francisco area with his mother as a teen-ager. He later attended the University of Southern California to study pharmacy. But his mother became ill, and he left USC to find employment first in a bank and later as an office manager for John Hancock Insurance Co. He met his future wife, Buhla Issacson, in that job and ultimately moved up to manage the Northern California office for John Hancock. His Bay Area experience also included time as a representative of Hearst Publishing Co. After a visit by an uncle at the end of World War II, Thomas became interested in moving to Hawaii. He took the first ship to the islands after the war and was intrigued by the beautiful mountains and warm welcome at Aloha Tower. He decided to move his family to Hawaii and returned with his wife and daughter in April 1946. He started Mid Pacific Distributors in Hawaii to represent U.S. manufacturers but was quick to see opportunities in marketing war surplus material. He opened a warehouse-type outlet named the Surplus Center with a full-page newspaper ad that said “WAR DECLARED on prices.” The grand opening was a huge success, and Thomas opened more surplus outlets throughout Hawaii. He eventually opened the “Big 88” stores on Oahu and Kauai and branched out into imports. With later growth in tourism, he continued to import and also turned to real estate. He developed the Thomas Trade Center in Honolulu, now the Dillingham Trade Center, and also expanded this operation to Kaunakakai, Molokai. His trading activities led him to Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan, where his company—Pacific Thomas Corp.—continues to trade. He is survived by daughter V. Jill Worsley; three grandsons; and one great-grandson. Memorial services will be held at 12:30 p.m. tomorrow at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Nuuanu-Lanakila Chapel, 622 N.

Marino Tiwanak  - He fought for his moment in the boxing sun and triumphed. Marino Tiwanak, amateur flyweight boxing champ of Hawaii in the mid-1940s, died Wednesday Jul 29, 1998 at age 71. Tiwanak was born to Filipino immigrant parents and raised in Kakaako, said his sole surviving brother, Raymond. Their father was an athlete, and all four Tiwanak boys were suited up for the ring. “He was very popular with the fans. He had a showy style like Sugar Ray Leonard,” Raymond said. “He was good-looking kid, too, nice guy.” Tiwanak, weighing just 118 pounds, developed a unique boxing style that quickly gained attention, recalled Bobby Lee, vice president of the World Boxing Council and a state boxing expert. “He was a great fighter out of Kakaako, a top-notch amateur,” Lee said. “He was a stylish boxer that resembled the old-style fighters who stood up straight.” Tiwanak boxed for just three years—in 1945, 1947 and 1948 -- but racked up an impressive winning record, said Michael Machado, executive officer of the Hawaii State Boxing Commission. Tiwanak won 14 fights in a row, then had a draw, then lost in a knock-out, Machado said. In all, Tiwanak won 18 fights, had three draws and lost four. “Fourteen wins in a row is impressive for anybody starting out,” Machado said. Tiwanak made Ring Magazine as fighter of the month, his brother said. But perhaps Tiwanak’s greatest moment came when he entered the ring against world champion Dado Marino, Machado said. He lost in a knock-out. In 1948, Tiwanak returned to Hawaii from California and fought his last fight.  He won a four-round match against Billy Bolilan and collected $51.06, 3 percent of the gross gate, Machado said. Unlike the rowdy reputations of some boxers, “This kid was a very likable, law-abiding young man,” Lee said. “He didn’t get into mischief, and he was very disciplined.” Tiwanak left boxing shortly after he married his wife, Vivian. He worked for Pan American Airways as a mechanic and retired in 1982. He devoted his retirement to teaching karate in the karate club Central Hawaiian Activities-3 Kenpo Brotherhood Association in Aiea. “He was the big cheese in the karate club,” his brother said. “He walked, talked, ate and slept karate.” Tiwanak died after going into cardiac arrest following open-heart surgery to replace a valve. He is survived by his wife; sons Lee and Michael; brother Raymond; sisters Gladys Sevener and Thelma Ligsay; and eight grandchildren. Funeral arrangements are pending.     [SB 3107/1998]

Masayuki Tokioka helped many immigrants rise from plantations and fulfill their entrepreneurial dreams by providing financial backing whenno one else would. Tokioka died at age 101 in his Kaimuki home Aug. 2, 1998. At his family’s request, notice of his death was not publicized while they honored him in private services. The quiet, unassuming Japanese businessman loaned millions of dollars to thousands of young entrepreneurs. Many of them had little or no collateral, says George Engebretson, author of Tokioka’s biography, “A Century of Trust.” The companies he founded and owned include National Mortgage and Finance Co. Ltd., International Savings and Loan and Island Insurance Co., Hawaii’s only locally owned insurance company. “He was generous in the criteria he used to make loans,” said Island Insurance President Wayne Arakaki. “He used to make loans primarily based on character and ideas.” Born in Okayama Prefecture in 1897, Tokioka boarded the Chiyu Maru with his mother to join the rest of the family in Honolulu. The 12-year-old immigrant attended Kaahumanu School and graduated from McKinley High School in 1921. He went on to graduate from the University of Hawaii and then became the first Japanese American to get a degree from Harvard Business School. After returning to Honolulu, he began his professional career at International Trust and started building his own businesses. He chose members of the powerful plantation oligarchy and local Japanese banking powerhouses as partners—a stunning feat during World War II, when anti-Japanese sentiment permeated the nation. He is credited with reviving the Japanese Chamber of Commerce after the war. His community-based business philosophy led him to take on instrumental roles in building the Makiki Christian Church and the Japanese Cultural and Trade Centers in Honolulu and San Francisco. He insisted his employees treat him as a co-worker. “In spite of his traditional Japanese style, that stern adherence to discipline, inside he had a real soft spot for people,” said Tsuneo Tanaka, an Island Insurance employee for 42 years who retired on company profit shares. “The discipline he gave us was really Japanese style, but his fairness was American style.” He is survived by his wife Harue, sons Lionel and Franklin, six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
