Duane Walker  -As vice president of patient care and chief nursing officer of Queen’s Medical  Center, Duane Walker was highly respected in the health-care community.  His co-workers knew another side of him. He’s the guy who put the plastic   mouse in the office refrigerator.   “He had a mischievous streak; he would be the first person to play a gentle  practical joke,” said Connie Wiletzky, head of patient services. “It would not  be unusual to open your drawer and find Duane had left a little surprise.  “He was the kind of person who took a lot of pleasure in other people’s joy  and achievement. He’d be the first to write a note or give a hug when  something good happened or when something bad happened,” she said.   “Duane talked to the president of the medical center the same as he treated the   housekeeper filling the paper towels and the gardener trimming the trees.   “If you walked through Queen’s today, you’d find that people are basically  crying.”  Walker, 59, died Sunday Jan 11, 1998 in Queen’s after a lengthy struggle with heart disease.  In his 12 years at the center, he was behind many innovations and projects  including a “distinguished nurse researcher” lecture series and the holistic   health program Lokomaika‘i. He worked for the founding of the Center for  Nursing Research, a joint project of Queen’s and the University of Hawaii  School of Nursing.  “He was responsible for the maintenance of standards for professional nursing  and for nursing education. He developed extensive relationships between the  medical center and Hawaii educational institutions,” Wiletzky said.  Walker served at the UH nursing school as senior director of clinical affairs and associate dean for development. He was a fellow of the American  Academy of Nursing. He was active in numerous professional and community  organizations, including the Ronald McDonald House.   Last year, the American Association of Nurse Executives named him nurse executive of the year and the Leukemia Foundation honored him as man of the   year.  He was co-author of “The New Nurse Manager” textbook and wrote more  than 25 articles for professional publications.   Before joining the Honolulu hospital, he was with Stanford University Medical  Center for eight years as associate administrator for nursing. He was born in  Waterloo, Iowa, earned a nursing degree from Weber State University and a   master degree from the University of Utah.  Wiletzky said Walker was an avid rose grower.   Outside his office window is a small garden of descendants of roses that  Queen Emma, alii founder of Queen’s, planted.  “He nursed them to health, and created the Queen Emma rose garden. He had  hopes of making it quite a bit larger.” His friends also remember him for “always seeking a home for   stray cats or someone’s extra puppies.” His family listed six pets among his  survivors.  He is survived by Timothy Moran McClellan and sons Geoffrey and Troy,  daughter Robyn, and two granddaughters.  Funeral services will begin at 6 p.m. tomorrow at Borthwick Mortuary. Friends   may call after 4 p.m. Aloha attire is requested. Donations may be made to the Duane D. Walker Nursing Fund at The Queen’s Medical Center.

Judy M. Weightman’s passion for justice and equality was not only  the theme of her career and life interests, it was her legacy, friends  said. Weightman, 56, a professor and director of the pre-admission program for minorities at the William S. Richardson School of Law  for the past 10 years, died Wednesday Mar 4, 1998 at Queen’s Hospital after a  long battle with cancer.  Her work as a founder of the Hawaii Holocaust Project produced  the award-winning documentary film “From Hawaii to the  Holocaust, a Shared Moment in History,” and television shows featuring the oral histories of Hawaii’s nisei soldiers of World War  II who participated in the liberation of the Dachau concentration   camp, and of Jewish survivors of the Nazi genocidal campaign.  The American Bar Association recently recognized her with its  Ramsay Award for bringing representation from diverse groups  into the legal profession.  Moya Davenport Gray, director of the Office of Information  Practices and a law school classmate, said: “Her incredible energy  and passion . . . probably instilled that passion for equality with all  her students. I think the law school and community will really  benefit from her work as they move into their careers. They will  have learned from the best.” Circuit Judge Sandra Simms said: “All of the students who have  gone through that program were like her children. She was their  mother in addition to being their professor, heard their crises and  confidences, cried with them.”   Darren Ching, a former student, said: “Starting with her days as a  public defender, she has been involved in helping people who  couldn’t help themselves.   “I was lucky enough to be one of the students she gave guidance  xxx in law and just in life in general. She was always there offering  her support.  The Hawaii Women Lawyers honored her last year with a  distinguished service award. The Jewish Federation of Hawaii  named her for a lifetime achievement award. She was a charter   member of the Afro American Lawyers Association and an officer of the American Civil Liberties Union. She co- chaired Hawaii  State Bar Association committees on minority bar passage and  increasing participation of under-represented groups in the legal  profession.  During her illness, Weightman undertook a project with the goal of  helping future breast cancer victims. Her son, Wayne, a   professional filmmaker, documented her journey through  chemotherapy, doctor visits, bone scans and lab tests, and hospitalization. As she   proceeded through her own experience, Weightman gave advice to  future viewers.  “This whole experience was positive, a celebration of life,” said  Wayne Weightman. “The essence is that you should continue to  live your life.”  Born in Pennsylvania, she was the child of Jewish parents who had  fled persecution in Poland and Russia. She received a bachelor’s  degree from California University of Pennsylvania, and master and doctor of law degrees from the University of Hawaii.  She is survived by sons Wayne, Randy and Darrell; sister Gloria  Kornasevicz; life partner Andy Mirikitani; and two granddaughters.  Funeral services will be at 10:30 a.m. Monday at Temple  Emanu-El.

Don Weller - Businessman Don Weller was a music lover and writer known for his humor and generosity. Evelyn Phinney, who worked for Weller, said she found him dead at 2:30 p.m. Saturday Sep 12, 1998 at home. An autopsy is being done. He was 52. Weller, born in Philadelphia, came to Hawaii on a fraternity dare. For 18 years, he taught different disciplines at the University of Hawaii: English, communications and political science. He was Hawaii's correspondent to Billboard magazine and wrote music reviews for the Honolulu Star-Bulletin. Elizabeth Kunimoto, former chairwoman for the University of Hawaii communications department, remembers Weller as "very interactive and very entertaining." Kunimoto, who worked with Weller at UH in the 1970s, said: "He could do a lecture with very little preparation. He had a fantastic smile and was very joyful; he exuded enthusiasm." In the 1980s, Weller established AudioTech and Soundscape Designs -- a business that installs background music/audio equipment for business offices. "He was absolutely as loyal a friend you could possibly have," said longtime friend Ron Jacobs. "As a person, if he knew you, he was absolutely caring and giving." Jacobs, a morning radio announcer for KCCN-AM, said Weller was not only a good friend to him but like an uncle to his daughter. "The first thing he gave her before she could talk was a turkey, and the first thing they would say to one another when they saw each another was, 'gobble, gobble.' " Even as Jacobs' daughter became a teen-ager, he said, she would go running into his house and say 'gobble.' Weller's physician, Dr. Barry Odegaard, said: "I'll never forget: I was observing his knee surgery and while (Weller) was being sedated, before he went under he said, 'Forgive them Father for they know not what they do.' Everyone laughed." With all Weller's humor, there was a more serious side to him, friend say. To Phinney and Asher Okata, it was Weller's direction and guidance that led them to what they have accomplished and what they are now. "He basically kept me going in terms of what I do now. He introduced me to people -- contacts for my field in communications," said Okata, an engineer with McHale Videofilm. "Anything you wanted that was within his power, he would help you out." Phinney is also grateful for Weller's guidance. "He gave me an opportunity at a time of my life when no one would," said Phinney. "I was fresh out of college and he gave me the opportunity to run his business, an opportunity to be more than a clerk." Phinney said memorial services will be held in early October. Weller's remains will be transported to Philadelphia. Those interested in attending memorial services can contact Phinney at 488-6227.

Walter “Babe” Woollett” - Sophisticated and witty, Walter “Babe” Woollett, was a legend in Waikiki and a popular wayfarer around the world. Woollett, 92, longtime aviator and Canadian Airlines executive, died Monday Jun 1, 1998 at his Colony Surf residence. He was born in Rochester, Kent, England, and was a Hawaii resident nearly 40 years. His son, Charles “Chips” Woollett, here from Vancouver, Canada, described his father as a person of humor and humility. “He was loved by many here in the travel industry,” he said. Walter Woollett had a myriad of interests and countless friends. “He was a man who walked among common men and royalty,” his son recalled. “He was very instrumental in putting together the British polo team.” His long service to Canadian Airlines earned him a reputation of helping build an airline that tied together the world from Europe to Australia. Woollett joined the Royal Air Force in 1924, resigning his commission in 1929 to become a bush pilot in Canada. He was involved  with mining exploration and mapping in northern Quebec and Labrador and also made mail runs. He joined Canadian Airways in 1932. Later, he completed an instrument flying course at a Royal Canadian Air Force base, then joined Dominion Skyways as operations manager. In World War II, he and a partner organized air observer schools across Canada. For that wartime service, British King George VI awarded him the Order of the British Empire.  After the war, Woollett became manager of Canadian Pacific Airlines, Eastern Canada, transferring to Australia in 1949. He later worked to expand its service to Southern Europe. Among awards received, one from Spain recognized his help in developing trade between that nation and Canada. Woollett served the airline in Hawaii from 1954 to 1957 as superintendent of South Pacific operations. He again came to Hawaii in 1962 as district sales manager, after service as assistant to the vice president in Montreal. Woollett stayed with the carrier—which over the years changed names from Canadian Pacific to CP Air to Canadian Airlines—until his 70th birthday in 1976, retiring as director of community affairs.  He also is survived by an older sister, Nora Woollett, 97, in England, and a grandchild. Services will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Hospice Hawaii.
