Richard E. "Rick" Davis, a stockbroker-turned-publisher, died Tuesday morning at his home after a heart attack. He was 65.  Friends remember Davis as a man who never let a setback get him down, even previous heart problems, but just went on to the next thing with an optimistic attitude.  "He was just one prince of a guy," said friend F.T. "Bamboo" Opperman, who knew Davis both as a fellow boat owner and as a member of the Outrigger Canoe Club.  "There was not a harmful bone in his body," said Opperman, whose business is commercial real estate. "He was a gentleman, a good father, a good husband, always very optimistic" no matter what happened to him, Opperman said.  Davis loved practical jokes, especially computer-generated fake letters. In recent years he learned card tricks and became quite good at them.  Tired of cartoonlike swimming-fish screensavers, he once took an early Macintosh computer, ripped the insides out, waterproofed it and turned it into an aquarium so he could look at real fish in the office.  Davis believed in the direct approach to most aspects of life, friends say. If he felt he had received less-than-perfect treatment from a local store or other business, he would call or write directly to the chain's national president.  In 1978, Davis created Aloha Magazine, a glossy publication aimed at mainland readers, and ran it for 20 years before closing it in mid-1998, when advertising revenues had fallen and Hawaii was in an economic slump. The magazine had also lost the support of the Hawaii Visitors & Convention Bureau, which used to include its travel planner in the publication but had passed it to another publisher.  Davis had several other Hawaii tourist destination-related publications and at his death was producing the Kamaaina Guide, a new magazine aimed at local readership to get them to enjoy low prices at local tourist attractions.  He also was publishing community newspapers for the residential complexes Ewa by Gentry, Waikele and Mililani, and always looking for new publishing opportunities.  Davis was born in Freeport, Long Island, and grew up in Hollywood, Fla. He attended the University of Florida-Gainesville and the New York Institute of Finance.  He was a Wall Street broker when he joined the Army and came to Hawaii in the service in 1958.  Out of the service, he lived in Phoenix, where he had a brokerage business.  He moved to Hawaii in 1968 and opened his own firm, Davis Securities.  In the early 1970s he had a stock watch program, "Stock Market Watch with Rick Davis," on KHON-TV. He is survived by wife Valerie, son Jeff, daughter Pam Davis and sister Lee Wachtstetter of Hollywood, Fla. A memorial service will be held 8:30 a.m. Friday at the Outrigger Canoe Club in Waikiki.    [SB 2/3/2002]

He was 64. Diffenderfer, who was born in Santa Monica, Calif., and raised in La Jolla, was one of the early North Shore pioneers. He learned to surf when he was 12 and moved to Hawai'i soon after graduating from high school in 1956 so he could surf full time. He quickly gained a reputation as a premier board shaper. Diffenderfer once estimated that he had shaped nearly 25,000 boards. "Everything about his boards was all flowing and curves, and he did it just the right way so the board was maneuverable and fast," said Gary Hanson, who has owned boards made by Diffenderfer for the past 40 years. "I would refer to him as a Michelangelo of shapers." Diffenderfer's older brother said the master shaper, who started shaping boards from redwood at age 12, was sort of a self-taught engineer who had studied the way airplane wings work and then applied that to surfboards. "That's where the rocker came from," said David Diffenderfer, who lives in Anthony, N.M. The "rocker," or the nose to tail curve of the board, is a standard on nearly every modern surfboard. It's one of the features that helps determine how maneuverable a board will be. He was among the first half dozen to surf Waimea Bay, Hanson said. Diffenderfer named the Banzai Pipeline after watching the first surfer dare to catch one of its hollow waves. The wave at Pipeline, which races across a wicked section of sharp coral reef, has become the surfing world's most photographed wave. Diffenderfer was also a lifelong golfer who played in numerous tournaments, including the Hawaiian Open. He tried unsuccessfully to join the Senior Pro Tour. Dr. Tom Sperandeo, a surfer and ophthalmologist became Diffenderfer's guardian 2 1/2 years ago. The shaper lived in an apartment in Sperandeo's Kahuku home. "He was very ill, and he needed someone to help him out, and it was me," he said. "We became kind of family. He was in my arms when he died." Diffenderfer was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 1993, his brother said. It was not malignant, but it was very invasive. He went through three brain tumor removal operations, David Diffenderfer said. "In Honolulu he went through massive radiation to kill the tumor," he said. "They were never able to extract it all. And the radiation began to deteriorate his brain." Diffenderfer spent the last six months of his life at the Kahuku Hospital. He died of pneumonia. Diffenderfer saw his younger brother for the last time in October. "We had some good times talking," he said. "He was at peace. He was a spiritual man, and he knew the power of God. Anybody who surfs knows the power of creation and that you are not in control. He knew that and he is with his creator right now." Diffenderfer is survived by his brother, David Diffenderfer, and three nephews, Richard, Stephen and John Diffenderfer. A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday on the beach at Hale'iwa. Ashes will be scattered at sea.      [Adv 23/5/2002]

Darlaine Mahealani Dudoit -  Friends and colleagues are mourning the loss of Native Hawaiian writer and editor Darlaine Mahealani Dudoit, who was found dead this week, only days before the release of her journal's second edition.  News of Dudoit's death has circulated throughout Hawai'i literary circles since her body was found Wednesday Aug 28, 2002 in a Kane'ohe apartment along with the body of her husband, Sanford Kapana, 47. Police have classified the case as a double suicide.  Dudoit, 48, a recipient of the Hawai'i Literary Arts Council's Cades Award for Literature, was best known as editor of 'Oiwi, A Native Hawaiian Journal, which she founded in 1998.  'Oiwi's second edition was released last night, and her associates gathered at the University of Hawai'i Center for Hawaiian Studies for the scheduled celebration "because Mahealani would have wanted it," said Ku'ualoha Ho'omanawanui, Dudoit's close friend and an assistant editor of the journal.  Born and raised in Hawai'i, Dudoit traveled extensively and wrote prose and poetry.  Her work has been published in many journals, including Manoa, Hawai'i Review and Southwest Review.  Her essays have appeared in two Bamboo Ridge publications: "Sister Stew" and "Growing Up Local." Honors include the Academy of American Poets Award, the Intro Prize from the Association of Writing Programs and a place on the USA Today All-USA College Academic First Team.  Her early work appeared in the UH English Department's Manoa Journal. A colleague there, editor Frank Stewart, described her as "the foremost Native Hawaiian writer in the state," while managing editor Pat Matsueda called her "a terrific person who gave of her mind, heart and soul to the journal and the people who worked for it."  Dudoit was a UH doctoral candidate with Kamanawanui, who said Dudoit's primary accomplishment was to give Hawaiians 'Oiwi, which recognized their skills in the literary arts.  "This is her baby," Kamanawanui said. "This is what she wanted for the lahui (nation). We can't let it die."      [Adv 31/8/2002]

Robert R. Dye recalled a few years ago that he discovered "this wonderful building on the corner of Hotel and Alakea streets ... with all the things kids like to do. It was called a YMCA and it became my second home."  That was when he was 9. Dye spent more than 50 years of his life making the Y as meaningful to others as it was to him on a local, national and international level. Dye, 80, died Wednesday Feb 27, 2002 morning at his Honolulu home. Don Anderson, president and chief executive officer of the YMCA of Honolulu and a friend of Dye's for more than 30 years, said Dye's accomplishments were "absolutely incredible, but of real importance was how he touched people one at a time. He was the most caring, Christian, gentle man. I never heard an angry word or heard him talk stink about anyone. I couldn't imagine anyone not connecting with and liking Bob." Dye had said he most remembered the "kind and loving people" who staffed the Y while growing up, calling the volunteers "a special breed." He later became a mentor to most of the organization's leadership, and "he made us all so much better," Anderson said. Dye was the first Hawaii resident to be inducted into the YMCA Hall of Fame, in 1998. He most recently received, among his numerable honors, the Hawaii Peacemaker Award on Martin Luther King Jr. Day for his lifelong commitment to peace and justice. After his stint in the 101st Airborne Division during World War II, he took his first job with the Y in 1946 in Los Angeles. In 1951 he went back to Hawaii to serve as executive director of the Nuuanu Y. In 1960 he became chief executive officer of the Honolulu Y, the first island-born person to hold this position, rebuilt the downtown branch and added two new branches. During the 1960s and '70s, he initiated several innovative programs in the urban jungles of New York, Los Angeles and Atlanta that alleviated racial tension. His work to initiate a six-week dialogue between police and street youths in Buffalo, N.Y., became a model for other inner cities. In 1983 he joined the World Alliance of YMCAs in Geneva, Switzerland, in its peace efforts and served as its liaison with the United Nations. In 1987, Dye retired but served as a full-time volunteer, Anderson said. He is survived by his wife of 55 years, Esther; daughters Lee Takagi and Christiane Owren-Heurich; sons Peter, Gregg and Mark; and seven grandchildren. A memorial service will be held at the Church of the Crossroads, March 10 at 4:30 p.m.    [SB 1/3/2002]

 

Robert R. Dye, a longtime executive with the YMCA in Hawai'i, died Feb. 27, 2002 in Honolulu. He was 80.  Dye was born in Honolulu and graduated from Roosevelt High School. He earned a degree in sociology at Whittier College, where he was student body president and was listed in Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities.  Dye began his long affiliation with the YMCA as a club leader and camp counselor in Honolulu before going into the Army, where he served as a paratrooper with the 101st Airborne Division, spending 27 months in England, France and Belgium during World War II. After leaving the Army, he worked in Los Angeles as a director and secretary with the YMCA.  In 1951, he returned to Hawai'i as the executive secretary of the Nu'uanu branch of the YMCA.  Dye became the general secretary of the YMCA of Honolulu in 1960, a position he held until 1967 when he left to become director of urban development and extension of the National Council of YMCAs in New York.  But Hawai'i was always his home, and Dye returned and served as interim president and chief executive officer of the YMCA of Honolulu. In addition to his work with the YMCA, Dye was active in other youth community projects, such as the Kiwanis club.  Dye is survived by his wife, Esther; daughters, Lee Takagi and Christiane Owren-Heurich; sons, Peter, Gregg and Mark; and seven grandchildren.  Services will be Sunday at 4:30 p.m. at Church of the Crossroads, 1212 University Ave. Donations may be made to the YMCA of Honolulu or the Church of the Crossroads.      [Adv 5/3/2002]

 

Tessa Gay Dye, former mistress of the Honolulu City Ballet and an international ballerina, died of cancer at her Kailua home Saturday  Nov 23, 2002. She was 56. Bob Dye, her husband of 26 years, said he hired her to head the short-lived city ballet company when he was an administrator in the mid-1970s. He soon became entranced when he saw her dance, he said. She was born Tessa Magoon in Honolulu and dreamed of becoming a ballerina from the time she was a little girl, he said. Her dreams were fulfilled, dancing with ballet troupes in Berlin and New York, and touring with the Jose Greco Spanish Ballet all over the world, he said. "She was a very lovely hula dancer, also," he added. Tessa Dye attended Punahou School, but left before graduating to enroll in the Royal Ballet School in London. She later attended Hawaii Pacific University. She stopped performing once they started having their three children and became "a great mother," Dye said. "She was an absolutely delightful woman and a fine person," he said. Tessa Dye was on the board of directors of Kindergarten Children Aid Association, ASSETS School, the Magoon Estate and the Guenoc Winery of California.
