Harry "Clown" Kahuanui, the first University of Hawai'i football player to participate in a college all-star game, died Sunday  April 21, 2002 after a lengthy illness. He was 74.  Kahuanui is a member of UH's Circle of Honor and was remembered by former teammates as a superb all-around athlete. As an end on the Rainbows' 1949 football team, he became only the second UH player to earn honorable mention All-America honors. His coach, Tommy Kaulukukui, was the first in 1936. Kahuanui also broke new ground for the Rainbows in 1949 when he was invited to play in the East-West Shrine Game, the premier college all-star game at the time. "That was a big honor," said Dr. Richard Mamiya, another Circle of Honor member who was Kahuanui's teammate. Since then, more than 100 UH football players have participated in various all-star games. Kahuanui also was a starter on the Rainbows' basketball team and was a territorial heavyweight boxing champion. He was inducted into the Circle of Honor in 1984. "When he came to UH out of Farrington (High School), he was pretty raw," Mamiya said. "But he developed into an all-around athlete. He was one of the few guys who was that tall (6 feet 4) back then, but he had raw talent and was a natural athlete." Jimmy Asato, a football teammate and Circle of Honor member, said Kahuanui was an "outstanding" end and a "terrific" person. "He was very talented and athletic," Asato said. "He was a great player. But the thing I remember most about him is what a wonderful guy he was. He was such a nice guy." Mamiya said the nickname "Clown" was a good fit for Kahuanui. "He did a lot of joking around, he was the life of the team," Mamiya said. "He was such a joy, a fun guy to be around." After leaving UH, Kahuanui served in the Marines on the Mainland and later returned to Hawai'i and coached football and basketball at several high schools. He coached Kahuku's football team from 1963-66 and guided the Red Raiders' boys basketball team to the 1968 Rural O'ahu Interscholastic Association championship. Later that year, he became head varsity football coach at Roosevelt, a position he held through 1971. Kahuanui also developed into a single-handicap golfer. One of his daughters, Shelley Kahuanui Fey, became a successful basketball coach at Punahou School. Kahuanui is survived by wife, Lily; son, Lance; daughters Shelley Kahuanui Fey and Charlene Christenson; grandsons Fatu Kahuanui, Micah Christenson, Kupono Fey and Keaupono Fey, granddaughter Joanna Christenson and great-grandson Isaiah Kahuanui. Services are pending.  [Adv 23/4/2002]

"Auntie" Debbie U. Kakalia, who taught herself Hawaiian quilt-making and was considered a master of the art, died March 19. She was 87. Kakalia was born Deborah "Kepola" Umiamaka in Honolulu in 1915 and was the 14th of 15 children. She was a graduate of McKinley High School. In the 1950s, Kakalia was an avid Western-style quilter and was determined to learn the traditional Hawaiian-style of quilting. But Kakalia, who worked as a presser in the laundry room at Le'ahi Hospital, became frustrated by the patronizing attitude of the quilting instructors she encountered. Undeterred, Kakalia began to research Hawaiian quilts and developed her own style. "She did it herself," said Kathy Gumpel, a former student of Kakalia's and now a volunteer at Nalani's Kapa Kuiki, a quilting class taught by Kakalia's granddaughter Nadine "Nalani" Goard. "When (Kakalia) went to the class, everybody said, 'Here's this ignorant Hawaiian lady; she just worked in the laundry as a presser and she had no sophistication or education,'" Gumpel said. "The ladies who were teaching the quilting evidently offended her in some way and so she felt 'snobbed' and went out and showed them." Kakalia soon became a master in the field and in 1975 she began teaching at the Bishop Museum. In 1976, she published "The Art of Hawaiian Quilting" and she began to travel to several countries to pass on her knowledge. Each of Kakalia's designs bears her trademark, an eight-point star, which she called the "star of David" in honor of her second husband, David Kakalia. In 2000, Kakalia retired and turned over her patterns and classes to Goard. One of Kakalia's last projects was a bright pink-on-pink chrysanthemum crib blanket that will be presented to Japan's Princess Aiko next month. Members of the Honolulu Crown Prince Akihito Scholarship Foundation will deliver the quilt. In addition to her quilting activities, Kakalia was a longtime member of Hale Ona Ali'i and the Ka'ahumanu Society. Kakalia is survived by her children, Deborah "Tufa" Santos, Edward "Butch" Jr., and Patrick; stepchildren, Maxine Mills, Gordon Kakalia, Robert Kakalia and Lucille Rogers; sister, Lydia Pope; 24 grandchildren; 35 great grandchildren; and three great-great-grandchildren. Visitation 8:30 a.m. next Thursday at Borthwick Mortuary, services at 10:30 a.m.; burial 1:15 p.m. at Hawaiian Memo     [Adv 21/3/2002]

 

Deborah "Kepola" Umiamaka Kakalia  - the late Hawaiian quilter Deborah "Kepola" Umiamaka Kakalia, fondly known as Aunty Debbie, was the kind of teacher students wanted to impress, her granddaughter said.   "She was just pleasant to be around," said Nadine "Nalani" Goard, who learned the art from her grandmother and who carries on her teaching and designing. "Everybody wanted to be the best student, aunty's favorite. Every student that comes into the shop claims they were aunty's favorite, so we see at least 10 favorites walk in a day." Kakalia, who taught thousands of people worldwide the art of Hawaiian quilting, died in her sleep Tuesday Mar 19, 2002 morning at the St. Francis Hospice in Ewa, Goard said. She was 87. One of the last quilts Kakalia made, a bright pink-on-pink chrysanthemum crib blanket, will be presented next month in Tokyo to Princess Aiko, the newest member of Japan's imperial family. The quilt will be presented by the Honolulu members of the Crown Prince Akihito Scholarship Foundation, who bought the quilt for $500 after seeing it displayed at Goard's shop, Nalani's Kapa Kuiki, at the Bishop Museum. In the 1950s, already practiced in the American style of quilting, Kakalia was forced to teach herself the Hawaiian style of quilting, Goard said, adding that quilters at Kawaiahao Church shunned her for not learning the art through her mom or grandmother. Kakalia learned by watching and started creating her own designs because she did not care for the obscure traditional patterns. "She wanted people to look at it and see the beauty of the flower and the leaf and instantly say, 'Yeah that's a plumeria, that's a pineapple,'" Goard said. Her trademark is an eight-pointed star, which she called her "star of David" in honor of her second husband, David Kakalia, who died in 1995. Another mark she was fond of was the old-fashioned embellishment "wai wai moa," which resembles three-pronged chicken feet. Kakalia started teaching regular classes at Bishop Museum in 1975 and published "The Art of Hawaiian Quilting" in 1976. She retired in 1972 from Leahi Hospital, where she was a presser in the laundry. She also taught and held demonstrations in Australia, New Zealand, Tahiti, Samoa, China, Japan, England and more. She retired shortly after enduring several strokes and heart attacks in April 2000. Prolific in her work, Kakalia stopped counting when she had completed 3,000 22-inch pillows, and at her own estimate made more than 75 bed quilts, Goard said. "She worked on three, four at a time in different rooms at her house ... two hours in the upstairs bedroom, two hours downstairs in the living room so they'd all be finished at the same time," Goard said. Kakalia's full-size bed quilts could fetch $12,000. "Her main concern was to continue her style of teaching, which is really simple, no rules," Goard said. "Her famous words were, 'Just sit down, relax and do at least an inch a day, and it will be done.'" Kakalia was born in Honolulu on Jan. 21, 1915, the 14th of 15 children. She was a member of both Hale Ona Alii and the Kaahumanu Society for nearly 50 years. Kakalia is survived by seven children, 24 grandchildren, 35 great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren.

Raymond Kam immigrated with his family from China when he was 10. Although he would attain only a third-grade education, Kam had enough smarts to keep a mom-and-pop market flourishing in Kalihi Kai for more than 50 years. Kam, who founded Alicia's Market in 1949, died Tuesday Aug 6, 2002 in Honolulu. He was 88. Gerri Kam, who married Raymond Kam's son and works at the store, said the secret to Kam's success was simple. "Friendly customer service, really happy regular customers and good food," Gerri Kam said. Kam was born in China in 1914 and the family moved to Hawai'i when he was young. He left school after the third grade and worked for his father and later an uncle at Kalihi Queen Super Meats. When World War II broke out, Kam joined the Army and served on Guadalcanal and Saipan. After the war, Kam returned to Hawai'i and bought an old wooden store on Mokauea Street. The store was named after his wife, Alicia. The Kams tore down the old store and expanded operations at an adjacent site. Alicia's Market has grown over the years, but the service has remained the same.Alicia's specializes in home-cooked-style food, such as roast beef, char siu, varieties of poke, boiled peanuts and seasoned steak. Alicia Kam makes her own crackseed sauce and still cooks her popular chow mein and fried rice. Other family members, including two daughters and son Leonard, continue to carry on the family tradition at the store. A grandson works full-time in the meat department. Although he was ill for nearly a year, Raymond Kam continued working until about two weeks ago. "He's famous for greeting the customers and taking them in the back to have a free sample," Gerri Kam said. "His famous line was, 'Hello young man. Hello young lady.' " Kam is survived by his wife, Alicia; daughters, Cynthia Kam Mori, Laureen Kam Chu, Kareen Kam Mau, Raynette Kam Dang and June Kam Chow; son, Leonard; and 13 grandchildren.

TOORU JOE KANAZAWA, a pioneering journalist and novelist who was one of the oldest members of World War II's legendary Japanese American fighting unit, the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, died Oct. 2, 2002 at his home in Topanga, Calif. He was 95 and had emphysema.  Tooru Joe Kanazawa, a pioneering journalist and novelist who was one of the oldest members of World War II's legendary Japanese American fighting unit, the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, died Oct. 2 at his home in Topanga, Calif. He was 95 and had emphysema. Kanazawa, who grew up in Seattle and Juneau, Alaska, escaped the World War II detention of 110,000 Japanese Americans in the western United States when he moved to New York in late 1940 to further his writing career.  A year later, disturbed by the federal government's mass internment of Japanese Americans after the attack on Pearl Harbor, he went to work for the Japanese American Citizens League in Washington, D.C. As the civil rights group's eastern representative, he advocated reversing federal policy to allow Japanese Americans to serve in combat.  More than 3,000 Nisei, second-generation Japanese Americans, fought in the 442nd, including several hundred who volunteered from the internment camps.  Kanazawa was, at 36, one of the oldest volunteers when he joined the regiment in 1943. He served until 1945, earning a Bronze Star for meritorious service as a radio operator for the regiment's Cannon Company.  He was the author of two books: "Close Support, A History of the Cannon Company of the 442d Regimental Combat Team" and "Sushi and Sourdough," a novel taught in many Asian American studies courses.  His 1989 novel, completed when Kanazawa was 83, was extensively autobiographical, offering a glimpse into the insulated world of Japanese immigrants struggling for a piece of the American dream in Alaska's salmon canneries during the 1920s. It describes the central character's conflicts as a Nisei straddling two worlds, who faced discrimination as well as delicious freedoms on the Alaskan frontier.  "He captured in fiction a piece of our history that is not well known, and at the same time he talked about the universality of the immigrant experience," said Phil Tajitsu Nash, who teaches Asian American studies at the University of Maryland and knew Kanazawa for 40 years. "It's a nuanced book, not rah-rah America, or America is unfair to immigrants."  Born in Spokane, Wash., in 1906, Kanazawa moved with his family to Alaska when he was 6. They lived in Douglas and later in Juneau, where his father was a barber.  Kanazawa worked in the canneries as a youth, but dreamed of a life as a writer. He enrolled at the University of Washington, graduating in 1931 with a degree in journalism. He sold some stories to the Christian Science Monitor and a magazine called Thrilling Sports.  But most mainstream newspapers were not interested in hiring Japanese American reporters, so he went to work for the English-language edition of the Los Angeles newspaper Rafu Shimpo, for which he covered the 1932 Olympic Games.  He was already living in New York when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. When the federal government ordered the evacuation of Japanese Americans from the West Coast, his mother, two sisters and their children were sent to a relocation camp in Poston, Ariz.  His brother died in a detention camp in Lordsburg, New Mexico. Kanazawa would later tell his family that his brother's spirit was crushed in the camp.  Among the rights and responsibilities lost in the national hysteria over Japanese Americans was military service: Nisei were reclassified 4-C, the category reserved for declared, undeclared and enemy residents. Many of the 5,000 or so Japanese Americans already in uniform were discharged after Pearl Harbor.  Kanazawa left New York for Washington "because he wanted to do something about getting Japanese Americans into the Army," said his daughter, Teru Sheehan of Topanga.  The 442nd Regimental Combat Team, organized at Camp Shelby in Mississippi in February 1943, was overwhelmed by volunteers. Kanazawa was one of the first.  The 442nd helped fight major campaigns in Italy and France and, with its "Go for Broke" motto, became one of the most decorated combat units in history.   Kanazawa is survived by his wife of 54 years, Mae; daughters Teru and Joy; a son, Mark; and several grandchildren.   [Adv 14/10/2002]

Patrick Shigeo Kawano - Maui County Council Chairman Patrick S. Kawano died Saturday June 22, 2002 at his Kaunakakai home on Moloka'i after a long illness. He would have been 72 today. Kawano had a reputation for being abrupt and grumpy, but old-timers and newcomers alike knew him as a compassionate man who loved public service because it gave him a chance to help people. State Sen. J. Kalani English, D-5th (Kahului, Upcountry Maui), was appointed to the Maui County Council in 1997 with Kawano's support. He remembered Kawano getting grumpy, as usual, after a council hearing had gone on far too long. "He started cutting everybody short, and nobody wanted to challenge him, and then the hearing was over, and afterwards he came up to me and said, 'Well, how was I?' "I told him I didn't know what he meant, and he said, 'Well, I ended the meeting, right?' "And suddenly I realized, he had been acting in there. He had a little bit of the showman in him." Former Lana'i Councilman Goro Hokama, who was on the council when Kawano came on more than 15 years ago, said yesterday "basically, he was a very soft person — he likes to help anybody he can help out — and sometimes that made it difficult for him, because there's just so much money in the budget." Hokama said Kawano, knowing the term-limit law would not allow him to run for a ninth term on the council, was thinking about running for the state Senate, despite health problems. "I was not surprised, because one thing I knew, he and his wife, Henrietta, were very close, and when she passed away, it really hit him," Hokama said. "I don't think he really got over it, but he had to be involved in something to keep going." Under a charter change approved while Kawano was on the council, the vacancy he leaves will be filled in the September election because there are fewer than six months to the election, English said. Kawano knew he would not be running again, and had expressed his support for his long-time aide, Danny Mateo, to succeed him. He was elected in 1986 as the Moloka'i district representative on the council, shortly before his retirement from Moloka'i Electric. For seven years, he was the chairman of the public works committee, and in 1995-96 he was chairman of the budget committee. He was elected council chairman — the first member from Moloka'i to win that job — in 1996. Kawano remained hopeful of more public service despite his health problems, friends said. His diabetes brought on amputations first of his right foot and then his left. Then he suffered kidney failure and pneumonia. English said he visited Kawano in the hospital on O'ahu after one of his amputations. "When I heard he went back to Moloka'i, I told him I was trying to change my schedule so I could come and see him," English said. "And he said, 'Ah, no need, Kalani — I know you care about me.' He knew the aloha was there." Kawano is survived by his brothers, Richard and Nelson; sister, Kachan; children, Adrienne, Keith, Patrick Jr., Nina, Tiana and Candice-Loni; and 11 grandchildren. Services are planned for Friday and Saturday at St. Sophia Catholic Church in Kaunakakai; times to be announced.       [Adv 23/6/2002]

William Christian Kea Sr., a retired Hawaiian Telephone Co. and GTE Hawaiian Tel executive, died Nov. 6, 2002 at his Honolulu home.  Kea, who was known as "Uncle Billy," was 96.  He worked for the telephone company from 1925 until his retirement in 1971, starting as a part-time switchman and working his way up to vice president of public relations.  Warren Haruki, president of the telephone company, which is now Verizon Hawai'i, praised Kea's knowledge and commitment to his work.  "In our industry, there is a pride in being a 'telephony' person," Haruki said. "And Bill Kea was certainly that."  Kea contributed to the early development of the company as a technician and sales manager, Haruki said. Then, in 1965, he became the head of public affairs.  "At that time, the public relations profession itself was in developmental stages," Haruki said. "But Bill was a leader in creating programs of community outreach that are still in practice today."  Kea was a Kamehameha Schools graduate and the 1927 class salutatorian. In 1987, he was recognized at Kamehameha's 100th anniversary as the Outstanding Alumnus of the year.  He considered public service a means of showing his gratitude for being born Hawaiian, and served as a trustee of The Queen's Medical Center for 40 years. He was chairman of the Committee for Public Relations, Hawaiian Health and Comprehensive Home Care, and he served as a board member of several other organizations, including Kawaiaha'o Church, Friends of Iolani Palace and the Central YMCA.  Kea is survived by his wife, Irene. He is also survived by his sons, William Jr. and B.J; his daughter, Kehaulani; his sister, Alice; his stepchildren, Gayle Hirahara and Gary Hirata; his hanai daughters Sunshine Kassebaum and Ruth Kassebaum; and several grandchildren, great-grandchildren and step-grandchildren.  Visitation is 9 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Saturday at Central Union Church. A memorial service follows. Dress is aloha attire. The family requests no flowers.        [Adv 17/11/2002]

Moe Keale  - Entertainer Moe Keale, whose career has spanned more than three decades in music and acting, died yesterday April 15, 2002 morning at Castle Medical Center.   Keale's nephew Michael said: "He was definitely a person full of aloha. He will be missed.  "He would encourage us in the ways of music," said Michael, who plays in a Hawaiian-jazz group.  Keale, 62, was a multiple nominee, finalist and winner in many award categories in the Na Hoku Hanohano awards.  Keale was known for several decades as one of the islands' distinctive vocalists.  He was perhaps best known for his ukulele style as a member of the Sons of Hawaii.  Keale acted in the hit television series "Hawaii Five-O," in many roles including Truck Kealoha.  He appeared in many TV shows: "Sanford and Son." "Kung Fu." "Westwind to Hawai'i," "The Islander," "Pearl," Donny and Marie Osmonds' "Going Coconuts" and "Charlie's Angels."  Keale also was featured as a regular in the TV series: "Big Hawaii" and "McKenzies of Paradise Cove."  The respected kupuna had a near-fatal heart attack March 12, 2001, at a Windward Oahu gym.  A pacemaker/defibrillator was implanted in his chest. A five-hour angioplasty was performed after doctors discovered that one of the four main arteries to Keale's heart was completely blocked, and another was 50 percent closed.  In 1958, Keale and three others formed a group called the Four K's, playing their first engagement at the old Waikiki Tavern.  In 1964 he was with the famed Puka Puka Otea Tahitian Show at Queen's Surf.  It was through this friendship with Eddie Kamae that Keale became part of the Sons of Hawaii in 1969.  He recorded as a member of the Sons of Hawaii in 1970, and then with Anuenue, but fully emerged as a recording artist with the 1980 "South Sea Island Magic" album.  Keale shared his warmth and music for years with audiences in his weekly performances poolside at the Sheraton-Waikiki Hotel.    [SB 16/4/2002]

 

Wilfred Nalani “Moe”  Keale  - Entertainer Moe Keale's life will be celebrated with song and prayer beginning at 4:30 p.m. Monday at Kawai'ahao Church, where friends may call until 6 p.m. The service will be from 6 to 7 p.m., followed by another visitation from 7 to 9 p.m. A musical remembrance will be held at noon May 4 at the Kuhio Beach Hula Mound after the scattering of ashes at sea at sunset. Wilfred Nalani Keale was born in Honolulu. He died of heart failure April 15, 2002 at Castle Medical Center at the age of 62. A Kane'ohe resident, he was a popular actor, singer, musician, healer and humanitarian. Of Native Hawaiian descent, Keale had roots on Ni'ihau. A former member of Eddie Kamae's Sons of Hawai'i and a seasoned actor on TV series ranging from "Hawaii Five-O" to "Magnum, P.I.," Keale also was a Na Hoku Hanohano Award-winning vocalist. He worked as a beach boy, radio deejay, part-time electrician and professional high-diver. His ease with Hawaiian vocals and his dexterity on 'ukulele made him a popular entertainment figure, well known for his recording "Aloha Is ... A Part of Me, a Part of You," which won him a Hoku award in 1987. At the time of his death, he was a partner in The Lomi Shop at Windward Mall. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Moe Keale Fund for the American Heart Association. He is survived by his wife, Carol; son, Nalani; sister, Momi Mix; hanai sisters Martha Noyles, Loke Lyu and Kauhane Lee, godson Kekoaokekoolau Lyu, nieces and nephews, and Ni'ihau 'ohana. Borthwick Mortuary is handling arrangements.     [Adv 24/4/2002]

 

Moe Keale - The entertainment community yesterday remembered Moe Keale as a witty, soulful musician and singer with jokes and songs to share.  Keale, the 'ukulele stylist who entertained audiences with his acting and music for more than four decades, died after a heart attack Monday April 15, 2002. He was 62. A full-blooded Native Hawaiian, Keale was born Dec. 3, 1939, on Ni'ihau, but grew up on O'ahu. "He was a beautiful, soulful man, who had a wonderful way of uniting people around him," said Keola Beamer, a longtime singer-composer-musician who now lives on Maui. "It was always a great feeling to be around him." "He had a great sense of humor," said Dennis Kamakahi, who performed with Keale as a member of Eddie Kamae's Sons of Hawai'i. "I was a baby of the group, when I joined in 1973, but I had known Moe from his beach days. He had a neat four-part harmony group. "In those early days, he looked like a walking mountain — he was huge, about 300 pounds — but he had a real big heart," said Kamakahi, who also is a member of Na Oiwi. "Big people have big hearts, I guess, and the thing about him I'll always remember was his outrageous sense of humor. He always had a story to share, a joke to tell. And when he sang, he had that pure Ni'ihau voice, that real sound of Hawai'i." Roy Sakuma, organizer of the annual summertime 'Ukulele Festival at Kapi'olani Park, said that Keale's generosity quickly made him part of the 'ohana. "From way back, he would always tell me, don't call, just put my name down. I'm going to be there every year for you," said Sakuma of Keale's commitment to share his talent with the public. "It's a real tribute to Moe that he wholeheartedly came out for the people and the kids. He had become tradition, usually coming on at 12:15 p.m., so we're planning to play a quiet song at that moment at this year's festival." Keale, whose voice brought a tingle of aloha to his music, will be remembered as a gentle, giving treasure in the Island entertainment scene. Don Ho called Keale a "multi-talented, sweet man. He did everything right, from beating the Tahitian drums to acting and singing, everything." "He just exuded a lot of spirit and aloha; he was my dad but my friend, my buddy, too. We cruised; we hanged out together," said Scott Nalani Keale, his only son. The younger Keale talked to his father Sunday while he was on a teaching mission in Japan. He was en route home, aboard a flight yesterday, when Moe Keale died. "I called him because I couldn't find a couple of chords to 'Pua Mae'ole,' a song I wanted to teach," Nalani Keale said. "He taught me how; he told me to play it in this particular chord. And I got it. It was awesome. It must've been midnight in Hawai'i at the time. And it was the last time I heard his voice." Keale nearly died a year ago when he had a heart attack while working out at 24 Hour Fitness in the Windward City Shopping Center. Police officers saved his life. Keale's regular performing gig was Thursdays and Sundays poolside at the Sheraton Waikiki. Of his many recorded songs, he was best known for "Aloha Is ... A Part of Me, a Part of You," for which he won a Na Hoku Hanohano Award in 1987. A frequent nightclub performer, Keale was the lead singer in Eddie Kamae's Sons Of Hawai'i back in the late '60s. He also had his own group, Moe Keale & Anuenue. In 1978, he recorded a solo album, "South Sea Island Magic." Keale was the seventh child in his family. His father came from Ni'ihau, his mother from Kaua'i. He learned to play the 'ukulele when he was 4; an older brother even taught him how to double-strum. He played the instrument as a boy growing up in Palolo Valley, taking it to Palolo Elementary School and Kaimuki High School and, later, as a beachboy, to Waikiki. Keale did a little of everything in his life, redefining the word versatile. As a beachboy, his long hair earned him a nickname that stuck for years: "Animal." He was a professional high-diver, a part-time electrician and a radio deejay. Once, when he was a deejay at KCCN in 1983, a listener requested "Kamehameha Waltz," but Keale couldn't find a copy in the studio. He quickly grabbed an 'ukulele and played it himself. Most recently, he also was the co-owner of the Lomi Shop at Windward Mall, giving lomi massages by day and performing his music at night. He got his acting start in 1959 with a role in the Spencer Tracy feature film "The Devil at Four O'Clock," which was followed by a long-run in New York of the stage production of "Paradise Island." He appeared in many TV shows, with recurring roles and guest appearances across the dial. It began with a role as a loveable policeman in "The Little People," which later became "The Brian Keith Show." That led to a recurring role as Truck Kealoha in "Hawaii Five-O," but not until after he worked on the set as an electrician. He also appeared in "Big Hawaii" and "Magnum, P.I." and in such diverse shows as "Kung Fu," "Charlie's Angels" and Donny and Marie Osmond's "Going Coconuts." In a 1982 interview, he lamented the way Hawai'i actors typically were cast. "Local guys like myself get some pretty awful roles," he said. "It's work." Of the fact that he was frequently cast as a "heavy," he said: "I guess I look mean." He once said acting comes naturally for him, an extension of his personality. "I'm a happy-go-lucky person," he said in 1977, when he played Garfield Kalahani in "Big Hawai'i." Bill Kaiwa knew Keale since childhood. "All our treasures are going," Kaiwa said. "I was with Moe two Sundays ago. I waited at the hospital for six hours the first time he had a heart attack a year ago. He was feeling fine, looking fine. I am shocked."       [Adv 17/4/2002]

Ann Keppel, a staunch advocate of women's rights who helped establish the first women's centers at the University of Hawai'i's Manoa and Hilo campuses, died of a heart attack Tuesday July 9, 2002 in Kaimuki. She was 78. Keppel was director of UH's women's studies program when she pushed for the women's centers, which opened in 1991. The centers initially were places where female students could gather and find support, but now provide services to all students. "She was a trendsetter in so many ways," said Meda Chesney-Lind, a professor of women's studies at UH and one of Keppel's students in the late 1960s. "She's the reason why we have a women's center on campus. She's the reason we have a good women's studies program. "She was used to being a pioneer." Keppel was born in Wisconsin in 1924, and while she taught history to high school students from 1946 to 1956, Keppel earned her master's and doctoral degrees in history from the University of Wisconsin. In 1958, Keppel was an assistant professor at the University of Vermont, and in 1965, Keppel moved to Hawai'i when UH hired her as an associate professor for the department of educational foundation. "She was always very interested in education," said Keppel's older sister, Elizabeth Tracey. "That was her priority throughout her life." Keppel was also selected in 1971 to be a member of the University's Commission on the Status of Women. Harlan Cleveland, UH president at the time, called the commissioners "guardians for women's rights on campus." In 1987, Keppel became the director of the UH women's studies program, focusing on the role of women and gender had in affecting history, psychology, political theory, literature, art, biology and education. Chesney-Lind credited Keppel with reviving the curriculum of the women's studies program when she became the director of the department. In 1991, Keppler came up with a proposal for the women's centers and lobbied the state Legislature to finance the programs. Today, the centers offer sexual assault prevention programs for male and female students, provide support services to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered students and run work-study programs for students who are receiving public assistance. She retired from UH in 1992. In addition to her sister in Wisconsin, Keppel is survived by her nephews, Robert, James and Steven, and nieces, Mary Sargeant, Jane Quall and Anne Sawyer. Services are pending.      [Adv 11/7/2002]

 

Ann Keppel - Having come of age at a time when women's educational and professional possibilities were limited, Ann Keppel worked hard toward equity and opportunities in education for women. In 1987 she became director of the women's studies program at the University of Hawaii-Manoa, protecting a program that was targeted for elimination and breathing new life into the curriculum.  Four years later, she launched a campaign that resulted in women's centers at UH's Manoa and Hilo campuses. Keppel, of Honolulu, died Tuesday July 9, 2002 of a heart attack. She was 78. Ralph Stueber, who met Keppel in 1957 while they were both in graduate school at the University of Wisconsin, described his friend and colleague as "an educator from top to bottom." "She came from a little rural hamlet in Wisconsin and apparently liked school," he said. She began her career as a high school history teacher, but specialized in the history of education in graduate school and brought her expertise to the university level. "She went beyond public school teaching, but in a way she never left it," Stueber said. Stueber said Keppel joined him on the UH-Manoa educational foundation faculty in 1965. Women's studies professor Meda Chesney-Lind was a graduate student when she met Keppel through the anti-Vietnam War movement at the university. They became close friends when they both joined the women's studies department, and worked together on many projects affecting girls and women, Chesney-Lind said. "She was the person who thought we needed a women's center on campus and did the hard pick-and-shovel work in making that happen," she said. "Ann was the queen of social networking," Chesney-Lind said. "She was the original grande dame. She really knew how to stay in touch with people and how to nourish people and friendships." She was also close to her family on the mainland, Chesney-Lind said. Keppel is survived by sister Elizabeth Tracey; nephews Robert, James and Steven; and nieces Mary Sargeant, Jane Quall and Anne Sawyer. Services are pending.        [SB 12/7/2002]

He was recruited by the Polynesian Cultural Center in La'ie to establish a Tahitian village at the O'ahu tourist attraction, and in 1970 took a job as a wood carver at the Kona Village Resort, where he worked for six years.

Harold William "Bill" Kirch, who gave the world "the orchid of the month" from Hawai'i, died Oct. 26, 2002 in Vancouver, Wash.   Kirch, who was 85, lived in Honolulu for 60 years, arriving in 1940 on the Lurline to revolutionize the Hawai'i orchid industry, and eventually became known on the Mainland as Hawai'i's "orchid king." He and his wife, Barbara, moved to Vancouver from Manoa in 2000. Born in Los Angeles in 1916, Kirch was educated in public schools and attended Whittier College and the University of California-Los Angeles. Interested in plants from an early age, Kirch went to work for the Los Angeles horticultural firm of Armacost & Royston in 1936. When the firm decided to send an agent to Hawai'i to serve the well-to-do kama'aina families who were among their best customers, they chose Kirch. He also worked for Castle & Cooke heiress Wilhemina Tenney at her new estate on Round Top, and with her backing, purchased a portion of the Woodlawn Dairy property in upper Manoa to establish Woodlawn Nursery. After bringing a world-class collection of orchid species to Hawai'i, Kirch combined with six other O'ahu orchid growers to capture a world-wide reputation under the name William Kirch Orchids Ltd., whose clients included Emperor Hirohito of Japan and the Shah of Iran. His most famous hybrid, a Catellya named after his wife, was honored by the American Orchid Society, while his cross of two rare blues of Vanda orchids won a first class certificate of the Royal Horticultural Society in London. But Kirch insisted that orchids be available not merely to wealthy collectors, and used the new jet aircraft service to the Mainland for a marketing plan called the "Orchid of the Month Club," offering customers a flowering orchid on their doorstep each month of the year. The sales helped make the firm the largest exporter of orchids in Hawai'i. A passionate fisherman, he participated in many billfish tournaments here. He was a founding member and past president of the East Honolulu Rotary Club and served as a judge of the American Orchid Society. In addition to his wife, Kirch is survived by daughter, Pamela Ver Chapman of Vancouver; and sons Michael Henry Kirch of Lucerne, Calif., and Patrick Vinton Kirch of El Sobrante, Calif.    [Adv 07/11/2002]

Bruce M. Koppel - Though stricken with a debilitating disease that left him paralyzed from the neck down and unable to speak, sociologist Bruce M. Koppel "lectured" around the world. The East-West Center Asian studies scholar and researcher had suffered from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's disease) since 1996. He died Tuesday Jun 4, 2002 at the age of 58. "Bruce continued to do scholarly work even as his body degenerated right in front of him," said Kathleen Hurtubise, district director for Muscular Dystrophy Association Hawaii. Hurtubise said while those with the neuromuscular disease lose their mobility, their mind stays intact, and some argue they become brighter. "He got smarter and more vivacious when he got sick," said Jessie Koppel, his wife of 31 years. Bruce Koppel continued to write with a specially configured computer, and advised those with ALS, "Don't look back, and appreciate every day." "He was an incredibly courageous person," Hurtubise said, who gave generously to MDA. "His memory will catapult us to a new level in ALS research." While he used a computer to lecture, he used his face to communicate, his wife said. "His eyes were so expressive," Jessie said, and he used his eyebrows to indicate yes and shook his head to say no. She was always amazed with how much he could communicate. The couple welcomed visitors because it was an ordeal for Koppel to go out. "He didn't want anyone to feel sorry for him," Jessie Koppel said. "Even though he cannot speak, his eyes were so vibrant, he made everybody comfortable with him." Bruce Koppel authored or contributed to more than 50 books and wrote dozens of monographs and professional articles, most of which were done prior to his getting ALS. But he continued his work at the East-West Center, which he joined in 1973. He served as vice president for research and education from 1992 to 1996. "Bruce will be remembered for his dedication both to the East-West Center and to promoting the understanding of issues in the Asia-Pacific region," East-West Center President Charles Morrison said. From 1996 to 1998 he served as visiting professor at the University of Rennes and the Institut d'Etudes Politiques de Paris and Centre d'Etudes de Recherches Internationales in Paris. Koppel was born in New Brunswick, N.J., and obtained his doctorate in rural sociology and his master's in comparative politics from Cornell University. He also taught rural sociology, sociology of development and social psychology in the Philippines. Koppel is also survived by son Eli of New York. Services will be held next Saturday at the Star of the Sea Church. Visitation is from 8:30 to 11 a.m.; memorial is 11 a.m. to noon; Mass is noon to 1 p.m.; burial is 1:30 p.m.The public is invited to join the family afterward in a celebration of Koppel's life with local and Filipino food at Diamond Head Mortuary.         [SB 8/6/2002]

Alfred Kovner - When he was 77 years old, Alfred Kovner joined the circus. He became "Freddie the Clown" in Cotton Candy's Clown Circus, a family clown business, after running a bicycle shop for 38 years. Kovner, 88, died May 7, 2002 of cancer at St. Francis Hospice-West in Ewa Beach.  He maintained his jolly disposition until the night he died in spite of suffering pain, said his daughter, Gwen Teixeira.  He became the darling of all the nurses in the five months he was in hospice, entertaining them with funny songs that he had sung all his life, she said. "He wasn't a world leader or a famous doctor or a war hero or sports figure ... But he was one of the greatest men who ever lived," Teixeira said. "He did things like work hard to provide for his wife and family, go to church. He helped his kids with their homework and drove his wife to do the grocery shopping. He loved God ... singing, fishing, dogs and John Wayne." Kovner lost his father, Kuzma Kovner, a Russian immigrant to Hawaii, when he was only 2. His mother, a Spanish immigrant named Soleda Juarez, remarried William Schubert.  As one of 12 children, he sold newspapers and watermelons and worked at the pineapple cannery. Later he worked at Honolulu Iron Works as a messenger, clerk and salesman. Kovner worked at his brother's shop, Schubert's Cyclery, as a mechanic's helper, foreman and partner. He founded the Piston Ring Co. and opened Economy Cyclery in 1958 in Honolulu. In 1968, he moved the shop to Kailua, where it operated until 1995. His wife of 67 years, Margaret, worked with him and was the "straight man" to his comic persona, Teixeira said. When he was 16, Kovner won an around-the-island bike championship and continued to ride until he was in his 60s. He ran bicycle races for the Mid-Pacific Wheelman's Club and was the district referee for the American Motorcycle Association from 1944 to 1958, Teixeira said. He was a Boy Scoutmaster from age 17 to 21 and, later, an usher at St. Patrick's Church. Kovner became "Freddie the Clown," doing benefits and parades, after Teixeira formed the Cotton Candy's Clown Circus and the Paradise Clown Club in 1989. He wanted to be with his six children, who all became clowns after Teixeira became "Cotton Candy."  He always joined them in singing, dancing, and doing skits at home, so it was natural that he wanted to clown around with them, too, Teixeira said. Kovner is also survived by daughter Judy Embry; brothers James Schubert of Lancaster, Calif., Evan Schubert of Paso Robles, Calif., Gus Schubert of Concord, Calif., and Michael Schubert of Surprise, Ariz.; 13 grandchildren; and 27 great-grandchildren. Paradise Club members dressed as clowns will attend the service from 5:30 to 9 p.m. Monday at Hawaiian Memorial Park, Teixeira said. Burial services will be held from 8:45 to 10:45 a.m. Tuesday at Diamond Head Memorial Park.      [SB 15/5/2002]
