Antonio Reclusado Velasco, called "Tommy," was a bartender, but to his customers he was more a psychologist, moneylender and the proverbial shoulder to cry on. But the barkeep of Hawaii's most popular watering holes was also a "classy" gentleman, devoted husband and father, and a good provider to his extended family, says his widow, the former Rumelia Flores. He was buried on his 42nd wedding anniversary, May 30, 1999, at the age of 86. Velasco was suddenly taken ill at their Pearl City home and died of a gastrointestinal hemorrhage on his way to Kapiolani Medical Center at Pali Momi on May 22, his wife said. Velasco's real name was Tony, but he was given the moniker Tommy by Tony Tavares, owner of the renowned famous Palm Tree Inn in Waikiki, who did not want two Tonys in the place. Velasco mixed drinks for 31 years at the Palm Tree, then owned and operated the Zebra Room for 18 years, his wife said. He tried to retire but was "such a good bartender with the gift of gab, humor and wit" that he was called to work at Sparky's Bar, Ross' Spare Room and the Blue Seas, she said. Although many of his customers poured out their troubles to him, they knew their secrets were safe with him, she said. He befriended homeless people, giving them money for food; paid for many a cab ride home for a customer who had too much to drink; and lent money to friends who were having a hard time, Rumelia Velasco said. Entertainers, television personalities and news reporters would be among the regular customers who became his friends, she said. Russ Lynch, Star-Bulletin business writer, said: "Tommy was a charming host who presided over a diverse bunch of bar clientele over the years, from the drink-starved guys who would scratch at the door of Sparky's on Kapiolani before its 6 a.m. opening, to the troubled souls who sought his advice and counsel toward the end of the day. "He had so many years running bars that he knew all the tricks and wrinkles. I'll always remember his standard answer to anyone calling in to find out if a husband, wife, boyfriend or girlfriend was on the premises. 'Most any time now' was his stock reply, regardless of whether the person was standing in front of him or hadn't been seen for days." Once known to island radio listeners as the "Songbird of the Philippines" in the 1950s, Rumelia Velasco won the hearts of lonely Filipino sugar plantation workers and turned down many a marriage proposal. But it was Velasco, a successful businessman and "very classy gentleman" at the age of 44 who won her hand. He called her "Princess" and promised her father he would work hard to make his daughter happy, she recalled, adding, "He really delivered the goods." He is survived by son "Tony Boy," daughters Rumelia Cortez and Adelaida Severson, and two grandchildren. [SB 8/6/2001]

Fritz Vincken - Former Honolulu baker Fritz Vincken died Dec. 8, 2001 in Oregon, 16 days before the 57th anniversary of well-publicized Christmas story of "the night God came to dinner."  Vincken was 12 years old when three American and four German soldiers converged on his house in the Ardennes Forest near the German-Belgium border on a harsh winter night in 1944. It was Christmas Eve and Vincken's mother, Elisabeth, offered food and shelter to the soldiers after they agreed to put their weapons down to share an evening of good will and peace. After a restful night, the soldiers went their separate ways but not before the Germans gave the Americans a compass and directions back to their front lines. In recalling the story in his 1985 visit to Germany, President Reagan noted that it "needs to be told and retold because none of us can ever hear too much about building peace and reconciliation." The 69-year-old Vincken, former owner of Fritz's European Bakery in Kapalama, had been living in Hawai'i Kai but moved to Salem, Ore., in September, according to his daughter, Elizabeth Vincken-Saberon. His health had not been good in recent years, she added. Fritz Vincken tried to find the seven soldiers after the war. It wasn't until the story was featured on a March 1995 "Unsolved Mysteries" television episode that Vincken learned about a man at Northampton Manor Nursing Home in Frederick, Md., who had been telling family and friends the same story for years. In January 1996, Vincken went to Maryland to meet Ralph Blank, who had served with the 121st Infantry, 8th Division, during World War II. "When he told me, 'Your mother saved my life,' it was the high point of the life," Vincken said of the reunion. "Now, I can die in peace. My mother's courage won't be forgotten and it shows what good will will do." Vincken, who was born in Aachem, Germany, is survived by his wife, Erna, daughter and two grandchildren. Private services were held in Silverton, Ore.      [Adv 11/1/2002]
