Shigeto "Shigesh" Wakida, Lahaina's legendary tennis coach, died Sunday May 6, 2001 after suffering a stroke. He was 85. Born in Lahaina. A retired supervisor. Shigesh Wakida is now hitting tennis balls to the angels. Expect the angels to be ranked soon. He touched thousands of children's lives, inviting anyone old enough to hold a racket to what became the Shigesh Wakida Courts on Front Street. He taught them tennis, hitting millions of balls from a shopping cart. He also taught them values, ruling his courts with a velvet racket and a daily lecture that rarely touched on tennis. Wakida produced many of Hawai'i's finest players, from Macario Pascual to Kennedy Makekau — his hand-picked successor at Lahaina Tennis Club — to Ryan Ideta and Jean Okada. University of Hawai'i rosters have long had Wakida's imprint, with players such as Karen and Kathy Felicilda, Mia Minami, Chris Ng, Diane Okada, Kula and Malino Oda, Steven Okada and Hiram Oyama. Ideta, the UH-Hilo coach, and Jean Okada play professionally, and will always call Wakida "coach." "His advice will always be welcome," Okada said three years ago, after she played in the U.S. Open. "He started me and he's still going to be my coach. He's the one." Ideta was 9 when he met Wakida. "He was pretty old already," Ideta said, laughing. "He was always yelling, scolding, being very strict. I remember him just feeding balls all day. That's what he did. He was always there for us. If somebody wanted to get good, we had a chance. "The big thing he gave us was opportunity, which a lot of kids don't have in Hawai'i." Wakida's impact on the sport here is indelible. His impact on "his" kids goes beyond. Wakida kept some in school, and helped others to scholarships. "Ten years after high school," Wakida once said. "That's when you see what success really is." He had an innate gift for teaching large groups and getting players of diverse talent to help one another. "He had so many kids flocking all over the courts like sheep," recalled Bob Keaunui, who was Wakida's neighbor in Lahaina and now has his own hugely successful junior programs in Windward O'ahu. "Every spot was taken yet he had them controlled. No one ever got hit. He inspired me. How could he handle that many kids? The key was discipline. He was the man. He had a lot of respect and they all did what he told them." There were no holidays in Wakida's tennis world. He was on the courts seven days a week, mornings and afternoons. When he wasn't, he could be coerced out by any kid who wanted to hit. Wakida, a retired mill supervisor, taught nearly 50 years, finally leaving to take full-time care of his wife, Sumie, who has Alzheimer's. He traced his start in the game to "playing paddle tennis with the ends of orange crates — it didn't go too well." But he loved it, teaching his children and grandchildren and, eventually, much of Lahaina. "He was just totally devoted to tennis," recalled Wailuku coach Stan Nagamatsu, who also based his program on Wakida's. "Anybody who had the right attitude and a good work ethic he was there for. He never let his kids down." The cost for each child that could pay was $30 a year. Wakida, who became a certified teaching professional, also taught tourists. That money went into the club treasury. It was never about money for Wakida. His payment came from the kids, who came to know this strict — some called him the Tennis Samurai of Lahaina — and passionate man as family.Survived by wife, Sumie; son, Clyde; daughters, Terry Young and Avis Kim; seven grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; brother, Noboru; sisters, Yukimi Apo and Matsue Nishimoto.

Arline L. Weyand, The woman known as "First Lady of the U.S. Army" while her husband was its chief of staff died in Honolulu Monday May 14, 2001. She was 86. A native of Healdsburg, Calif., Arline Langhart met Fred Weyand more than 60 years ago when she was a student at San Jose State University and he was attending the University of California at Berkeley. They married in 1940, just before he began an Army career that would take him into combat in Korea, to the command of Hawai'i's 25th Division, and eventually to the U. S. Army's top post, chief of staff at the Pentagon. They moved 26 times during her husband's 36-year career. Her husband, who was away during the births of their two children and for much of their childhood, said Arline "really raised the kids by herself a lot of the time, and did a beautiful job of it." Weyand received national attention in 1950 when she mobilized her hometown to adopt Fred Weyand's unit — the 1st Battalion, 7th Infantry Regiment — in combat in Korea. "We had gotten pretty badly beat up in combat at the Chosin Reservoir, and my guys lost all their stuff," Gen. Weyand said.

John White - The late John White, a Soviet specialist and University of Hawaii history professor for 30 years, was one of the first scholars allowed to observe conditions in Russia during the Cold War. "It was not common at that time," Geoffrey White said of his father's 1960 trip. "Russia was not open to scholars." His father spent six weeks in Nikita Khruschev's Russia, where he attended the 25th International Congress of Orientalists in Moscow and toured 16 cities and Russian Central Asia. On his return home, he reported that Russian citizens held friendly attitudes toward their American counterparts, but the American government, they thought, was "aggressive, a bunch of warmongers." A UH professor emeritus and former department chair, White died Aug. 8, 2001 in Houston. He was 90. White was fluent in Russian and Japanese and spent a year in Japan as a Rockefeller fellow, researching material for his 1964 book "The Diplomacy of the Russo-Japanese War, 1904-1905." He also wrote three other books, including "The Siberian Intervention" in 1950, a study of Russia's relations with China and Japan. His study of Russia's relations with Asian countries was unique at the time, said Patricia Polansky, the Russian bibliographer at UH's Hamilton Library and a former student of White's. Polansky remembers him as a "terrific professor" whose lectures were always "chock full of information." She said White was instrumental in starting a Russian Area Studies group on campus, which was popular in the 1970s. He even tried to get the East-West Center to develop a Russian program but was turned down by the State Department, Polansky said. For two decades, Polansky said, White was the primary person building the library's Russian collection, and he had to fight for every addition. "I always felt that every single book on the shelf had his blood on it," she said. "My job was very easy because I just tried to build on what (he did)." White served in the Pacific during World War II and graduated with a doctorate from Stanford University in 1948, the same year he joined the UH faculty. After retiring in 1979, White moved to Houston, where he lived in a retirement home, Geoffrey White said. He is survived by sons Geoffrey and Kenneth, three grandchildren and daughter-in-law Cary.  Memorial services are scheduled for Sept. 23 at 3:30 p.m. at Atherton Memorial Chapel on the campus of Central Union Church. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Cancer Society or the John A. White Scholarship Fund at the Department of History, University of Hawaii.  [SB 10/9/2001]

Vera La June Woodstock - Dedicated Red Cross volunteer nurse and local community service leader Vera La June Woodstock, 76, of Honolulu, died Tuesday July 10, 2001 after a one-year battle with lung cancer. Born in 1925 in Missouri, Woodstock moved to O'ahu with her Air Force husband and three children in 1964. As a registered nurse, Woodstock started volunteering at Hickam Air Force Base during the Vietnam War. Woodstock's daughter, Linda "Dusty" Bleadon, said her mother would relieve the nurses who were on board the air evacuation airplanes that landed at Hickam before they transported their wounded to hospitals on the Mainland. "She would get up all hours of the night when she got called out there," Bleadon said. Volunteering became Woodstock's lifetime profession. She was a longtime Red Cross volunteer nurse at Tripler Army Medical Center and was recognized as the center's "volunteer of the year" for three years. "She was a lovely lady," said Gertrud Lynagh, a Red Cross volunteer. "Other volunteers would come into the office, and if they didn't know what to do, Vera smiled and always helped them." Woodstock was also presented the American Red Cross Hawai'i State Chapter's "Volunteer of the Year" honor in 1993, the Silver Good Citizenship Medal from the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution and the "First Ladies Outstanding Volunteer Award" in 1994 from former first lady Lynn Waihee. In addition to her daughter, Woodstock is survived by her husband, Ray Earl; son, Larry; half sister, Rayne Brooks; and one grandson.A memorial service was held yesterday at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific at Punchbowl.
