Alan Naluai, a member of The Surfers, whose onstage hilarity with the musical group often belied his vocal prowess, died of a heart attack Saturday Mar 10, 2001 at his Hawai‘i Kai home. He was 62. He was completing a solo vocal album of Hawaiian tunes, including some of his original compositions, said his brother Clayton Naluai. "It was his project, not The Surfers’, and he wrote some new music," said Clayton, who hopes the posthumous CD will validate his brother’s talent. Some selections will be performed at the funeral Sunday at Kawaiaha‘o Church. Services will be at 6 p.m., preceded by visitation from 5 p.m. The ashes will be scattered Monday off Waikiki. Alan Naluai had a heart attack about two years ago, according to Clayton Naluai, the other "up front" member of the original Surfers for more than 20 years. "I was a big fan," veteran Waikiki entertainer Don Ho, who shared the stage with The Surfers at Duke Kahanamoku’s in the ’70s and the Hilton Hawaiian Village Dome in the ’80s. "I thought Alan and Clayton were underrated, superior showmen. Off stage, Alan was always a smiling person, very pleasant, always. He was always positive. As a group, they were a cut above the rest."

Tom Moffatt, the veteran entrepreneur who produced The Surfers’ "Shells" album, said: "I remember The Surfers from the ‘Show of Stars’ era, when they were in college and did some of my shows. Al and Clay were terrific and went on to a successful recording career." Though "retired" since 1980, Alan and Clayton periodically worked as a duo, the last time aboard the cruise ship Independence in December and January. The Surfers — like Ho, Martin Denny and Arthur Lyman — were in the first wave of musicians to bring the Islands’ music to the post-statehood Mainland audience. "Shells" was one of their hits; as a duo, Alan and Clayton also popularized "You Gotta Feel Aloha." On stage, Clayton’s romantic, leading-man posture contrasted with Alan’s clown antics, in gigs at Duke’s, Don the Beachcomber’s, Hong Kong Junk, Canton Puka, C’est Si Bon, the Oceania Floating Restaurant, Outrigger Waikiki, Hilton Hawaiian Village and Imperial Hawai‘i Hotel. At the time of his death, Alan was in real estate and worked as a Budget Rent a Car salesman. Besides his brother Clayton, Alan Naluai is survived by his wife, Faith; children, Alan Jr., Allison, Honey, Camille, Vanessa and Lorna; brothers, Michael of Santa Cruz, Calif., and Buddy; sisters, Judee Mulcahy in Long Beach, Calif., and Louise Danilevicius in Laguna Hills, Calif.; mother Abigail Naluai; and 11 grandchildren.

Luther "Chief" Louis Nathaniel Sr. wore many hats in a busy life that included policeman, taxi driver, surveyor and fire chief on Wake Island following World War II. But he was best-known on the Big Island for his 40 years as a Democratic Party leader and for volunteering in the community.  Nathaniel died July 31 in Hilo at age 81.  A fellow Democratic stalwart, Hiroshi "Scrub" Tanaka, remembered him as "a most devoted and dedicated member." Tanaka said Nathaniel served as perennial sergeant-at-arms in the local Democratic Party and acted as host at the Big Island's hospitality suite during state party conventions.  At one point, Nathaniel, who was born July 24, 1920, in Kurtistown, was a tour bus driver who endeared himself to visitors by bursting into song with little prompting.  Even after suffering a stroke three years ago, he would entertain other patients and the staff at Life Care Center in Hilo, where he died last week.  "He never met a stranger," said Maxine Nathaniel, his wife of 41 years. "He loved everyone from the man on the street to the governor."  A memorial service will be held from 6 to 7 p.m. tomorrow at Dodo Mortuary. The family requests casual attire and no flowers.  Along with his wife, Nathaniel is survived by daughters Polly Varize and Joan Varize, both of Hilo, Diane Ahlo of Mountain View, and La Verne of Florida; a son, Rodney, also of Florida; 17 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.

Frank George Nelson, 93, a retired English professor who fought Nazi persecution in Europe and age discrimination in Hawai'i, died Sept. 8 at his home in Hilo. Born to Norwegian immigrants on Oct. 28, 1907, in St. Joseph, Mo., Nelson became caught up in the Nazi takeover of Europe after going to work as a visiting professor of English at Oslo University. He was imprisoned by the Nazis as an underground collaborator for passing messages, and in 1940 was exchanged along with other prisoners for a Nazi spy captured in the United States. The king of Norway bestowed a medal on Nelson for helping that country's citizens escape Nazi persecution. After teaching on the Mainland, he joined the University of Hawai'i-Hilo in 1966 and eventually challenged a state law that required Department of Education and University of Hawai'i faculty to retire at age 65, even though other DOE and UH workers were allowed to remain on the job until age 70. The Hawai'i Supreme Court ruled in 1981 that the law was unconstitutional. "He enjoyed the fray," said daughter Sara Nelson Scanlon of Orchidland Estates in Puna. Nelson also was a regular contributor to the editorial pages of local newspapers, submitting pithy notes that poked fun at his numerous targets. A linguist who spoke 13 languages, he helped translate "Pathfinder," a book chronicling the early immigration of Norwegians to America. He later returned to his family's homeland to lecture in Norwegian and English. While teaching at UH-Hilo, he took American students for summer study programs at Uppsala and Lund Universities in Sweden. The success of the cultural and educational exchanges moved the king of Sweden to knight Nelson in the 1960s. "He strongly believed Americans needed to experience continental Europe," his daughter said. In a wheelchair since breaking his hip in a fall last November, Nelson remained upbeat and kept his strong sense of humor, Scanlon said. Private services are planned. The family requests that in lieu of flowers, memorial donations be made to Hospice of Hilo or the UH-Hilo Scholarship Fund. Arrangements are being handled by Dodo Mortuary in Hilo. Nelson is also survived by wife, Jeanette; and son, Thomas. [Adv 18/9/2001]

Harry M. Nishida, 87, known for allowing customers to pay after delivery of pineapples and papayas, died Thursday in Honolulu.  Nishida founded Tropical Fruits Distributors of Hawaii in 1965 with three employees, after years working as a pineapple field supervisor, said his daughter Gloria Wu.  Nishida conducted his business like this, Wu said: "He had tourists place orders (while in Hawaii), then put the bill into the box of pineapples and papayas" that he shipped to the U.S. mainland, Japan, even Europe.  "He felt that more people were honest than dishonest," said Nishida's son, Ralph, who worked with his father until they sold the business to Dole in 1993. At its height, the business had more than 30 employees, Nishida said.  "A lot of people said, 'How come you're taking a chance?'" Ralph Nishida said. "But most people used to pay. We could outdo our competition that way."  Nishida was born Feb. 2, 1914, in Puunene, Maui, where his father worked in pineapple fields, and moved to Oahu in about 1940, Wu said.  He died May 31 at Straub Clinic and Hospital after collapsing several days earlier at his Palolo home.  He is survived by his wife, Bessie J.; son, Ralph; daughters Grace Wu and Carole Seymour; brothers Torio, Shiro, and Satoru Nishida and Sueo Abe; sisters Chiyoko Yoshida, Masako Iwamoto, and Miyoko Hashizumi; seven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.  Services will be at 4 p.m. June 10 at Nuuanu Mortuary.

Earl K. Nishimura, an attorney and founder of the Japanese American Citizens League-Hawaii, died Tuesday in Honolulu. He was 94.  Nishimura was born Aug. 28, 1906, in Pu'uloa, O'ahu. His parents were Japanese immigrants and lived on several plantations.  A graduate of McKinley High School, Nishimura received a degree in agriculture from the University of Hawai'i. He went on to work with the Hawaiian Pineapple Co. and then served as county extension agent of the University of Hawai'i Agricultural Extension Service.  During his childhood, Nishimura became aware discrimination against Japanese Americans. Most companies did not hire Japanese, he said, and he was one of a few who were referred for a government job after graduating.  This had a lifetime impact on Nishimura, who championed the causes of Americans of Japanese ancestry.  In 1980, he founded the Japanese American Citizens League Hawai'i chapter. The organization was created in 1945 to fight for the rights of Japanese living in the United States and those who were sent to relocation camps during World War II.  Nishimura also worked to bring redress for World War II discrimination against Japanese Americans.  The movement led to the Civil Liberties Act of 1988, the federal apology that provided redress to about 82,000 Japanese Americans who were interned, sent to relocation camps or evacuated from their homes.  Nishimura received many awards for his tireless work, including the Japan Imperial Order of the Rising Sun. He also was president of the Gajimaru Club and member of the Thursday Luncheon Club.  Nishimura is survived by his wife, June; sons, Karl and Dean; daughters, Earlyn, Berlyn, and Frieda Hulse; step-daughters, Patricia Middleton and Candace Kukino-Russo; sisters, Mildred Kodani and Vivian Mizumoto; seven grandchildren; and 10 great-grandchildren.  Service is Sunday at 4:30 p.m. at Nu'uanu Congregational Church.
