Margaret Martin Kaaua, 92, a longtime Hawai'i County political figure, Hilo businesswoman and musician, died Sept. 12.  From 1932-1965, Kaaua served as deputy county clerk or as county clerk, the latter an elected position. Active in the Republican Party on the national, state and county levels, she failed in a bid for Hawai'i County Council in 1968. Born May 24, 1909, on the Big Island, Kaaua was a member of the prominent Martin family of law enforcement officers. During World War II, when martial law was in effect, she served as a deputy sheriff.  Her father, Henry K. Martin, was county sheriff, and her son, Martin, served on the Big Island police force for 27 years, the last eight as deputy police chief. Her late brother, George Martin, was police chief; another brother, Charles Martin, was a police inspector.  Her late husband, Edward, served as Big Island district engineer for the Territory of Hawai'i.  Francis Benevides, 83, who worked with Kaaua in Republican Party activities, recalling how much she loved children, described her as a "very compassionate and cooperative, a very good, wonderful woman."  Throughout the years, Kaaua volunteered for community groups such as the Hilo Woman's Club and the Easter Seal Society.  Before she began her public career, she performed with the Blue Melody Boys and owned several businesses.  No public services are planned. The family suggests memorial donations to Easter Seals, the American Heart Association or American Cancer Society. Condolences may be mailed to P.O. Box 7, Hilo, HI 96721.

Mary Jane Kahanamoku, a noted music educator who also played a key role in the revival of Big Island canoe racing in the 1970s, died Monday at Kona Community Hospital. She was 81. Her husband, the late Louis Ko'oliko Kahanamoku, was the fifth of six brothers of the legendary sports family whose most famous member was three-time Olympian Duke Kahanamoku. Family stories say she wooed her husband while playing 'ukulele at the Moana Hotel in Waikiki. She spent more than 20 years as choral music teacher at Konawaena High School and devoted most of her energy in retirement to promoting outrigger canoe racing. "She had a Hawaiian spirit throughout her life," said younger sister Lorraine Sohm, who lives in Kona. Kahanamoku was born Jan. 7, 1920, in Waiakea, and developed a lifelong love of things Hawaiian. Her mother was Portuguese and her father, who worked for Hawai'i Consolidated Railway in the early 1900s, was British. Don Isbell, who taught instrumental music at Konawaena during much of the time Kahanamoku taught classes in singing and 'ukulele, said she "just loved the kids." She took her choir on an extended tour of California and then to Tahiti, where she would later promote Polynesian canoe racing. She helped found and served for a time as the secretary general to the International Vaa Federation, a canoe racing association. Isbell's most vivid memory of Kahanamoku is watching her "hyperventilate on the football field" after a 1972 fire destroyed the school music room and most of her collection of 'ukulele. "She was just devastated," he recalled. But she bounced back before retiring from the public school system. She was a guiding force with the Kai Opua Canoe Club and later helped start Keauhou's Kauikeaouli club, known now as the Keaukaha Canoe Club. "There was a force about her," according to her sister. The Kahanamokus left Hawai'i in the late 1980s for California, where Louis died in 1994 of complications from emphysema. His wife returned to Kona. Funeral arrangements are pending at Dodo Mortuary in Kona. Sohm said a scattering of the ashes will be held soon at Keauhou Bay. In addition to her sister, Kahanamoku is survived by a daughter, Mrs. John (Jill) Fetz of Arizona; a son, Sanford "Sandy" Kahanamoku of California; a brother, John May of California; two grandchildren and several great-grandchildren.

George Kawakami, 78, a 442nd Regimental Combat Team veteran, businessman and representative on Kaua'i of Sen. Daniel Inouye, died over the weekend while visiting family on the Mainland. He was a member of the clan that owns the island's Big Save supermarket chain and served on the Big Save board. He was the eldest son of Big Save founder H.S. Kawakami. Until George Kawakami's retirement, he ran Kawakami Store, the family furniture store on Rice Street in Lihu'e. Funeral arrangements were pending yesterday. A lifelong friendship with Inouye made Kawakami a powerful figure, but he was known as a quiet force with a ready smile. "We have worked closely on several projects and, always, Kaua'i's interests were of utmost importance," said Mayor Maryanne Kusaka. "Those of us who know George will remember him fondly as an avid golfer, a 'rascal' and fun-loving friend, and an astute businessman." When proponents of economic development or other projects on the island sought an ear in Washington, Kawakami — since he had the ear of the state's senior senator — was often a first stop. "Because of his ability to listen to the people, this island is forever better off," said Gary Baldwin, director of the Kaua'i Economic Development Board, who described Kawakami as a second father to him. Sen. Inouye, who served with Kawakami in the Army during World War II, described him as a friend whose family connection spanned generations. "George has been my friend and my brother since we were in grammar school. Our fathers were classmates and our families were very close," Inouye said. "Returning to Kaua'i will be different. George will not be there to meet me. I will miss him." Survived by wife, Kazue "Kay"; daughters, Kristen "Mari" Dean and Cesili Kawakami-Wong; mother, Elsie "Michiko"; brothers, Dr. Edward and Charles; sisters, Gertrude Toma and Edith Tan; four grandchildren.

John "Butch" Kekahu III, who organized two marches upon Washington, D.C., to raise awareness of the plight of native Hawaiians, died Thursday Dec 27, 2001 at the Memorial Hospital in Lihue after a battle with diabetes. Kekahu, 57, organized the first Aloha March in 1998 to publicize Hawaiian issues, including the return of control of the islands to native Hawaiians. Two years later, a second march was held. Both events attracted participants from Hawaii and the mainland, and included a symbolic tossing of ti leaves into Boston Harbor. Kekahu, the founder of the Koani Foundation, an Anahola-based native rights organization, was arrested in 1993 for his six-year occupation of Hawaiian home lands. Despite his lack of a formal education, he lectured on Hawaiian self-determination before the U.S. Congress and at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His mother, Rebecca Mikala Kekahu, marveled at her son's physical strength and determination to continue his advocacy in the face of advanced diabetes. "I have not seen anyone suffer so much and struggle just to get through each day," she said. "My son touched so many lives. He was indeed a patriot for our people." Kekahu was born in Hanapepe and spent the 1960s in Los Angeles as a musician and entertainer. He returned to Hawaii in 1971, when he began fighting for native rights. "Like a lot of us native Hawaiian brothers and sisters, I am the poster boy for how we have fared under the American way of life," Kekahu said recently. "It is with great sadness that I have seen too many of my people die while waiting for our lands to be returned." Along with his mother, Kekahu is survived by sons John, Aaron, Charles and Danny; daughters Ruby and Merlene; brother Kawika; and sisters Rowena and Rhonda. Memorial services are pending. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Koani Foundation, P.O. Box 510-182, Kealia, HI 96751.  [SB 9/12/2001]

Francis J. Kennedy Jr., business manager for the Hawai'i Fire Fighters Association Local 1463 for more than 30 years, died yesterday morning at his Hawai'i Kai home. He was 59.  Kennedy was born Nov. 2, 1941, and graduated from St. Louis School in 1959. He joined the Honolulu Fire Department in 1964 and served as a firefighter until 1972.  Kennedy's father was a longtime labor leader in Hawai'i, so it made sense when the younger Kennedy was asked in 1970 to help build the fledgling Hawai'i Fire Fighters Association union.   He is credited with developing the business manager position and strengthening the union that represents 1,800 firefighters in all four counties and at the state airports.  Union president Bobby Lee said last night that Kennedy fought for better pay and benefits, as well as improved living conditions for the state's firefighters. But Lee said Kennedy also had the public's interest in mind.  He credited Kennedy with developing the state's collective bargaining law. He also fought for mandatory random drug testing of firefighters.   "Drugs could also affect fellow firefighters. We worked at trying to better the environment, not just for the firefighters, but for the public too," Kennedy said.  Kennedy's labor activities also went beyond the firefighters union. In 1971, Gov. John Burns appointed Kennedy to serve on the first Hawai'i Labor Relations Board, a position he held until 1979.  He also served as a labor arbitrator and worked on several boards, including the Aloha United Way.  Honolulu Fire Chief Attilio Leonardi would often be on the opposite side of the negotiating table. But the chief said he considered Kennedy a great friend.  "He was a terrific guy who had a way about him that was very positive and easygoing," Leonardi said "He always had a different perspective and different way of looking at things. Whenever we got into a bind, after a couple of days he would always come up with a solution that was equitable for everybody." Kennedy is survived by his wife, Hazel; four children; and 11 grandchildren. [Adv 1/9/2001]

PAUL KIERKIEWICZ The icehouse on Hilo's Banyan peninsula, which had supplied blocks of ice to fishermen since 1949, has closed due to the death of its owner. Businessman Paul Kierkiewicz, 47, died April 19, 2001 in Queen's Hospital due to the failure of his liver and other organs, said his brother Jim Kierkiewicz. "Paul was a hard-driving man and he was a smart businessman," his brother said. Kierkiewicz bought Hawaii Ice & Cold Storage Inc. in 1989 and nearly obtained county approval to expand it to include a restaurant, museum and apartments. But his plans were stymied when retiree Henry Ross, a frequent critic of government, complained that the disbanded Hawaii Redevelopment Agency had sole control of the area. The body was reconstituted, but county agencies kept adding new requirements without granting Kierkiewicz approval. "He didn't know what side of the road to stand on," his brother said. Just weeks before his death, Kierkiewicz filed a federal lawsuit claiming the county took value from his property by prohibiting necessary improvements. Despite that, Kierkiewicz made major improvements in the ice-making equipment, his brother said. Following Kierkiewicz's death, the company was closed because of danger from ammonia used in the equipment. Potential buyers are interested in the property, but the future of the ice business is unclear, Jim Kierkiewicz said.

Erida Reichert Klemmer, the first woman chief resident at the Queen's Medical Center and an advocate for men and women with Hansen's disease, died Monday of cancer. Reichert was born in San Francisco, and traveled to Honolulu every other summer with her family. She attended Katherine Delmar Burke School for Girls, the University of California and Stanford University. She graduated from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in 1953. But Reichert is best known for her work as facility director and medical administrator of the Hansen's disease program within the State Department of Health, where she worked hard to destigmatize the disease, said her son, Fred Klemmer. Dick Korsak, who knew Reichert for more than 25 years, said she was a dogmatic, thorough and honest individual. "Her intense care for the people she took care of made her a special physician. She loved her patients so much and worked for their rights at whatever cost," said Korsak. Along with the assistance of Island businessmen, Reichert lobbied the state to allow for more openness at Hale Mohalu and Kalaupapa for patients to travel and for family and friends to visit. Kalaupapa postmaster Kuulei Bell said Reichert was invaluable to the people of Kalaupapa. "We called her mommy. She always went the extra mile whenever anyone needed anything, she was such a special person," Bell said. "All of the patients really loved her."

Evelyn Klinckmann, a former state Department of Education official and assistant to former Lt. Gov. Jean King, died Aug. 26 at her Bainbridge Island, Wash., home. She was 75. Born in Elmhurst, Ill., in 1926, Klinckmann was an educator by training. She earned a Ph.D. in philosophy and education in 1975 at the University of Chicago and taught at the University of Wyoming and the San Francisco College for Women. In 1982, while serving as King's administrative assistant, Klinckmann was appointed to assistant superintendent of the Office of Instructional Services by schools Superintendent Donnis Thompson. She was an "outstanding educator," said Thompson, Klinckmann's former student at George Williams College at the University of Chicago. "I always admired her in terms of her knowledge of education and commitment to education, quality of life and quality of life for her students in general," Thompson said. As assistant superintendent, Klinckmann was developing a multifaceted approach to education that emphasized the learner, learning environment, resources and facilities, Thompson said. Klinckmann went on to serve as the administrative officer of the Environment and Policy Institute at the East-West Center from 1984 to 1992. Former colleague Terry Rambo remembers Klinckmann as an organizer with diplomatic skills. "Without her the system would have literally ground to a halt," said Rambo, who was Klinckmann's boss for several months before she retired. She served during "quite a difficult period," said Rambo, a professor at the Center for Southeast Asian Studies at Kyoto University in Japan. "She managed to a walk a difficult line between power holders and people working for them and managed to keep both satisfied -- not an easy job." Klinckmann was also an environmentalist who participated in Earth Day and played a key role in establishing a recycling program at the East-West Center, he said. After retiring in 1982, Klinckmann moved to Bainbridge Island, where she served as chairwoman of the planning commission, among other civic activities. Klinckmann is survived by sisters Muriel Klinckmann and Dorothy Mock; nieces Kathy Klein, Cindy Shuttleworth and Liz Hoecker; and nephew Douglas Mock. Memorial services will be held at 2 p.m. Sept. 23 at Eagle Harbor Congregational Church on Bainbridge Island.

James H. Koshi, a leader in the Hawai'i dairy industry and professor emeritus at the University of Hawai'i, died Tuesday Oct 9, 2001 in Honolulu. He was 82. Koshi was born on a farm in Agate, Colo., and earned his undergraduate degree at Colorado State University. He went on to receive a doctoral degree in dairy production from the University of Minnesota in 1955. Soon after earning his degree, Koshi came to the University of Hawai'i to help the island's struggling dairy industry. He found that farmers were not following scientific methods, were using "secret" feeding formulas and were still not adept at artificial insemination. But Koshi was able to persuade farmers to institute his plan that not only increased the number of cows here, but milk production also. Hawai'i soon became one of the top milk-producing locations in the country. In addition to serving as dairy specialist at the UH cooperative extension service, Koshi was the general manager of the 50th State Dairy Cooperative and executive director of The Fresh Milk Industry of Hawai'i. Koshi also served as president of the Friends of the Library and was a member of the city's Neighborhood Commission.

Shigeomi Kubota - Retired Kauai Councilman Shigeomi Kubota "stood for what he believed was right and did not always go along with what was popular," said his daughter Adele Stevens.  "He did what was best for the people," she said.  Kubota died Thursday Nov 29, 2001 at his Koloa home. He was 86.  Kubota was born in Kekaha, Kauai, on Jan. 3, 1915, to Kiku Kitsutaka and Kizou Kubota. He was the second of 11 children. Kubota graduated from Kauai High School in 1933 and worked at a pineapple cannery to help support his brothers and sisters through college.  Kubota later became chairman of the Public Works Committee and was a supervisor for the Kauai Pineapple Co. A former football star, Kubota was the chairman of the Kauai Football Officials Association. He was known for his involvement in sports, coaching community football, basketball and baseball teams. Kubota also was the founder of the Garden Isle Mortuary in 1949.  Kubota served six years as a member of the County Board of Supervisors and two years as a councilman. He served as Kauai County Council chairman in 1973-1974.  "He was a people person," said Robert Yatsuda, who served on the Finance Committee while Kubota was chairman.  Kubota also served as chairman of Kauai's School Advisory Council.  As a father of five children, he was very indulgent, Stevens said. "He did everything for us," she said.  Stevens said education was important to her father. During his term on the Council, Kubota initiated free bus transportation for all children, said Kubota's wife, Bernice.  Stevens described her father as an independent thinker who taught his children to stand up for what they believe in.  "He taught us too well," she said.  Kubota is survived by wife Bernice of Koloa; sons Brian of Lawrence, Kan., and Burt of Koloa; daughters Adele Stevens of Honolulu, Louella Rita of Makawao and Sue Kubota of Honolulu; brothers Dr. Scott Kubota of Pearl City and Herbert Kubota of Mililani; sister Edna Imaoka of Waipahu; four grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.  Visitation is at 9:30 a.m. tomorrow at the Koloa Missionary Church. Services start at 10:30 a.m. Burial will follow at the Lawai Public Cemetery.      [SB 3/12/2001]

 

Shigeomi Kubota was gruff and irascible as a politician, but associates remember him as an honest man unafraid to challenge powerful forces over what he thought was right.  "He was a real stickler for doing the right thing," said Turk Tokita, longtime administrative assistant to the Kaua'i Board of Supervisors and its successor, the County Council.  Kubota, 86, who died Nov. 29, 2001, served three terms on the board from 1963 to 1968, and won election to two-year terms on the council in 1969 and 1973. He was the council chairman during his last term and was a Democrat throughout his career.  "He was very objective, straightforward and honest. He didn't play games," said Jerome Hew, a former councilman who retired as the county clerk.  Kubota, an accountant with Kaua'i Pineapple Co., was a founder of Garden Island Mortuary, and he made his name in the community as a sports official.  "I first remember Shigeomi from my high school days when he officiated our football games," said Burt Tsuchiya, a former county economic development director and former council member.  The sense of fair play that is a part of sports carried over for Kubota into politics. He did not hesitate to lecture those he felt were acting improperly.  "I've seen him go against the mayor. He would stand on principle and be the watchdog of county finances. He would always cite the Hawai'i Revised Statutes and the County Charter," Tokita said.  Kubota also had a fine sense of humor and could tell a story with a grin and a gleam in his eye.  "He was a good man with a kind heart, the last of Kaua'i's old school of politicians," Tsuchiya said.  Services were held Tuesday. He is survived by his wife, Bernice; sons, Brian and Burt; daughters, Adele Stevens, Sue Kubota and Louella Rita; brothers, Dr. Scott Kubota and Herbert Kubota; sister, Edna Imaoka; and four grandchildren.     [Adv 7/12/2001]
