Lawrence "Larry" Toshiaki Ichinose, a longtime boxing manager and son of prominent boxing promoter "Sad Sam" Ichinose, died Tuesday Dec 17, 2002. He was 68. Ichinose gained fame by managing world champions Andy Ganigan and Ben Villaflor during his 17-year career from 1967 to 1984. He also managed headline fighters Leo "The Snake" Calderon, Johnny Santos, Young Kennedy and Ralph Aviles. Ichinose became a boxing manager at the request of his father, who under Hawai'i boxing rules could not perform both duties. "Larry would manage fighters that Sam was particularly interested in," said Mike Machado, executive secretary of the Hawai'i State Boxing Commission. "Larry was semiestablished because of his father." As a manager, Larry Ichinose handled the financial interests of the boxers, who would earn two-thirds of the profits, while he received one-third, Machado said. Under the guidance of Ichinose and trainers, Villaflor, a young fighter from the Philippines, became a world champion, Machado said. "He did a good job with Ben. A lot of credit has to go to Larry Ichinose." Bobby Lee, former executive secretary of the Hawai'i State Boxing Commission from 1951 to 1977, said Larry Ichinose was a "protege of his dad." "I say that only because Sam was such an outstanding and outspoken leader, if you're his son, you can't shine," said Lee, who was recently inducted into the Hawai'i Hall of Fame. Ichinose is survived by a son, Samson; daughters, Cecilia Ichinose and Laurie Campos; a grandchild; brother, Miles Ichinose; and sister, Amy Okamura. A service will be held at 6:30 p.m. Sunday at Honpa Hongwanji Hawaii Betsuin, 1727 Pali Highway. No flowers. Casual attire. [Adv 20/12/2002]

Minoru "Gabby" Inaba, former Kona educator and legislator, died Thursday Jun 6, 2002 at his home in Kealakekua, Hawaii. He was 98. Inaba's 38 years as a teacher, coach, and vice principal at Konawaena High School from the 1920s made him a a respected figure. "He had the respect of two generations. He taught fathers and children," said Kona rancher and former County Councilman Sherwood Greenwell. Over the years, Democrat Inaba helped Republican Greenwell with his campaign, and Greenwell returned the favor. On Inaba's retirement from the school system, then-Gov. John Burns took note of his availability. "Gov. Burns wanted him to run," Greenwell said. Inaba served in the Legislature as a representative from Kona for 10 years in the 1960s and 1970s. What Inaba had done as an educator to build individuals, he did for Kona's physical facilities as a legislator. Inaba obtained money for a new Kona Hospital, to expand Honokohau Harbor, to drill a new water well, making a community water system possible. "I can remember the days (before the well) when we all had water tanks in Kona," said Marnie Herkes of the Kona-Kohala Chamber of Commerce. Inaba brought money to his district "unfailingly," Greenwell said. The son of Jentaro and Hatsuyo Inaba, Minoru Inaba was born into a family of seven brothers and two sisters who succeeded in several professions. But his childhood could be hard, a fact he relates in his own voice in an oral history description of his work as a seventh-grader harvesting coffee. It can be heard at: http://www 2.soc.hawaii.edu/css/oral_hist/konaau.html Coffee also shaped Inaba's sports activities. He coached several sports, but not football, because Kona schools were on a "coffee schedule," holding classes in the summer but not in the fall harvesting season when other schools were fielding football teams. His youthful coffee experiences served the community eight decades later as Inaba helped the Kona Historical Society preserve the Uchida Coffee Farm as a museum a decade ago. "He was a great guy," said Greenwell. Inaba is survived by his wife Sumie Jane; daughters Jeanette Tinnel, Mae Kawahara, and Annette Sato; brothers Yoshio, Norman, Goro and James; five grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. Services will be at 11 a.m. Saturday at Daifukuji Soto Mission in Honalo. Call after 10 a.m. [SB 12/6/2002]

Yoshimasa Ishihara - Yoshimasa Ishihara's life is best described by the Japanese word, "kaizen," which means lifelong learner. Kirk Nakamoto used the word in eulogizing Ishihara, his grandfather, who died Sept. 14, 2002 at age 86. Ishihara, owner of Hallmark Jewelers at Ala Moana Center, was believed to be the oldest working jeweler in Honolulu when he retired two years ago. "Dad took (kaizen) to heart," third-generation jeweler Isaac Ishihara said. "He was always trying to learn new things. He read trade magazines and he attended jewelry industry classes until his retirement. We have all the latest equipment. "I think he was an example of integrity and professionalism and was a leader in the industry," said his son, who is running the family business after working off and on with his father for 30 years. Yoshimasa Ishihara gave up an opportunity to attend medical school after he graduated from the University of Hawai'i-Manoa to help his father, Gihei, a noted watchmaker on Kaua'i who opened a jewelry store on 'A'ala Street in Chinatown in 1927. When Gihei brought his son into the business, G. Ishihara & Son had moved to Hotel Street near River Street. Yoshimasa Ishihara was running the business in 1952, when he moved the store to Hotel and Bishop streets and changed the name to Hallmark Jewelers. In 1966, Hallmark opened a second store at Ala Moana Center, becoming the first tenant on the diamondhead side of the shopping center.

Takao Ito was a public school educator, administrator and prominent union leader in Hawai'i. He died June 6, 2002 at age 82. As a major player in a significant 1970 vote that boosted the Hawai'i Government Employees Association into local prominence, Ito advocated that principals, vice principals and other educational officers form their own union, separate from teachers. Paul Kobayashi, retiring principal of Wahiawa Community School, recalled how he and Ito convinced their membership to split from the teacher-dominated Hawai'i Education Association. "Takao was talking to the elementary principals and I was talking to the secondary principals," Kobayashi said. "We realized there had to be a break from teachers because our roles and functions are different." With the passage of the collective bargaining law in 1970, the principals and vice principals became the first group to elect an exclusive representative. The HGEA won the vote, 307-250. "The Unit 6 victory was HGEA's first and heralded what was to come," HGEA Executive Director Russell Okata said. "Today, HGEA represents seven bargaining units and a total of 42,496 active and associate members," Okata said. "We are Takao's legacy." A 442nd Regimental Combat Team veteran from Pa'ia, Maui, Ito served as HGEA president from 1974-78. The Maui High and University of Hawai'i graduate began teaching in February 1953. He became a school principal in 1958. Ito is survived by June, his wife of nearly 24 years; sons Dr. Thomas, Alvin and Peter; daughters Marilynn Ito-Won, Cathy Mochizuki and Yvette Muta; brother George, and five grandchildren.
