Ricardo L. "Kadong" Oamilda was one of the amateur athletes immortalized on a plaque at Hans L'Orange Park as part of the history of Waipahu.  He was remembered as one of the most versatile athletes of those early and mid-20th century days when Oahu Sugar Co. was not only the workplace for waves of immigrant workers, but also provided a structure for competition in baseball, boxing, swimming and other sports.  Oamilda died June 14, 2002  at the age of 85. He retired in 1980 after 48 years with the sugar plantation.  "Rick was a terrific ballplayer; he was first baseman. And he was a boxer and a runner," said his contemporary and former teammate Fred Daguman. "There was no more television then. We had all kind games. He was a happy-go-lucky guy."  Oamilda was one of the storytellers for a 1999 tribute to Hans L'Orange, a former plantation manager whose legacy is the park that is still the recreational center of the town.  Oamilda was born in Carcar, Cebu City, the Philippines. He is survived by sons Gene, Glenn, Gary, Gordon and Guy; daughters Gwen and Georgette Montibon and Gretchen Dayanan; sister Esidra Oamilda; 16 grandchildren; and 15 great-grandchildren. Also surviving are hanai children Ray and Ronnie Desmet, Ray and Rose Ramos.  A funeral Mass will be said at 9:45 a.m. Thursday at St. Joseph Church, Waipahu. Friends may call from 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesday at Mililani Mortuary, where a 7 p.m. wake service will be held, and after 8:30 a.m. Thursday at the church. The family suggests aloha attire.      [SB 22/6/2002]

 

Ricardo "Kadong" Oamilda was a plantation worker who never finished school, never owned a car and never had a telephone for many years. Despite his modest lifestyle, he was able to put his eight children through private school and still had time to excel in sports.  Oamilda, who worked for O'ahu Sugar Plantation for 48 years, died June 14, 2002. He was 85.  Oamilda was born Feb. 11, 1917, in Carcar, Cebu City, the Philippines, and his family moved to Hawai'i when he was 1. They lived in Waipahu, and plantation life was all he knew.  Oamilda finished only the seventh grade, but he promised himself that it would be different for his children.  "It was a choice between going to school or having nice clothes or a nice house," said his daughter Gwen Montibon. "It was either education or the frills. We didn't have the frills."  But Montibon said the family enjoyed the plantation lifestyle.  "Most of us have come back home to live in Waipahu," Montibon said. "We enjoyed everything that the plantation had offered, the different cultures, different races."  When he wasn't working, Oamilda played on plantation teams and became a famous multisport athlete. He boxed, bowled, golfed, skated and played basketball, volleyball and tennis. He also played with the Braves of Hawai'i Major League baseball, and many believed he could have made it as a professional in the big leagues.  But Oamilda had his priorities set.  "We often wondered why he never went beyond Waipahu, but in the later years we found out that Dad had made the decision that his family was first. His career was not important," Montibon said.  In 1999, Oamilda was included on a Legends in Sports monument celebrating the 75th anniversary of Waipahu's Hans L'Orange Park.  In addition to Montibon, Oamilda is survived by his other daughters, Gretchen Dayanan and Georgette Montibon; sons, Gene, Glenn, Gary, Gordon and Guy; 16 grandchildren; 15 great-grandchildren; hanai sons, Ray Desmet and Ray Ramos; hanai daughters, Ronnie Desmet and Rose Ramos; and sister, Esidra Oamilda. Visitation is 6 to 9 p.m. today at Mililani Mortuary Mauka Chapel; service at 7 p.m. Visitation also 8:30 a.m. tomorrow at St. Joseph Church; Mass at 9:45 a.m. Burial will be at 11 a.m. at Mililani Memorial Park.      [Adv 26/6/2002]

John Thomas O'Brien, 90, of Honolulu and Woodstock, Ill, first director of the Look Laboratory for the University of Hawaii, died Thursday June 13, 2002 in Woodstock. "He was extremely productive and ran the laboratory on a high and professional plane," said Hans-Jurgen Krock, researcher who currently directs the laboratory. The laboratory was established by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in 1963 to study tsunamis in Hilo Bay. The study evaluated if a weather barrier could be built to protect Hilo "and concluded that it could but nobody would really want it because it would basically be a monster," Krock recalled. The Corps turned the laboratory over to the UH several years later and O'Brien became director, serving until 1977. The laboratory formed the basis for the UH ocean engineering department, Krock said. O'Brien served in the Army Reserve, earning two Bronze Stars during World War II. He was a University of Minnesota graduate and a world renowned ocean engineer.  He specialized in "Waves, Wind and Data" at Look Laboratory, at the California institute of Technology and Port Huenume in California. Under his leadership, Look Laboratory made model studies of most major features of Hawaii's coastline, including Barber's Point Harbor, the reef runway, Kuhio Beach and various other features of coastal barriers and beach erosion questions, Krock said. Studies were done on sand mining for beach replenishment, effects of hurricanes and tsunamis, prediction of runup of tsunami waves and work related to ocean thermal energy conversion, he said. "The laboratory actually became internationally known through the efforts of Mr. O'Brien because he made arrangements with similar kinds of laboratories all over the world for exchange of research papers and scholars." O'Brien loved opera and world travel with his wife, Ada Marie Bennett O'Brien, formerly of Honolulu, now of Woodstock. Survivors, besides his wife, include a son, John T. O'Brien Jr. of Falls Church, Va., a daughter, Nancy O'Brien Phillips of Woodstock, three grandchildren, Ben III Mathew and Owen Phillips, all of Woodstock, and a brother, Ken O'Brien of Edina, Minn. A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. June 25 at St. Ann's Episcopal Church, 503 W. Jackson St., in Woodstock. Memorials may be made in his name to the University of Minnesota School of Engineering.    [SB 16/6/2002]

Kanoelani "Lani" O'Connor, a former assistant to then-congressional delegate and later Hawai'i governor John Burns, died July 5, 2002 in Virginia. She was 75.  O'Connor was born Kanoelani McMillen in Honolulu and raised in Wahiawa. She graduated from Leilehua High School.  In 1953, she married Thomas O'Connor and the couple moved to Washington, D.C., where she worked for Burns, who represented the territory of Hawai'i in Congress. Kanoelani O'Connor also was a hula and Hawaiian culture instructor who was known as the "ambassadress" of Hawai'i in the nation's capital.  As Hawai'i fought for statehood in early 1959, O'Connor played a key, although little-known, role in congressional approval of the statehood bill. The measure sat in the House Rules Committee, which was run by the iron fist of Virginia Democrat Rep. Howard Smith.  Burns promised Smith, known as the "Judge," that if the measure passed through his committee that a hula girl would put a lei on the judge. O'Connor was that "hula girl," the lei was presented, the bill passed and the rest is history.  O'Connor also served as executive secretary to the chaplain of the Walter Reed Army Medical Center. She later worked in the office of U.S. Sen. Hiram Fong and completed her federal service as secretary with the U.S. Parole Commission.  Illness forced O'Connor into early retirement, but she remained active in Washington. She was on the board of governors of the Hawai'i State Society of Washington, D.C., and in 1969 she helped design a Hawaiian float for the presidential inaugural parade.  O'Connor is survived by sons, William and Thomas II; daughter, Deborah McCue; two grandchildren; brother Francis McMillen; and sister, Kehaulani Schroeder. Mainland services are planned.     [Adv 13/8/2002]

Antone S. Olim -  treated everyone equally and "didn't pull any punches," said Olim's son, Anthony."He was respected by inmates and workers," Anthony said. Olim, former superintendent of the Oahu Community Correctional Center, died Friday Aug 30, 2002 at St. Francis Medical Center. He was 85.  Olim was born on Jan. 3, 1917, in Ewa. On Aug. 1, 1941, Olim made the transition from a milk route salesman to a guard at the old Oahu Prison after one of his three brothers, who were involved in the prison system, encouraged him to apply. Thirty-three years later, Olim was the superintendent of the prison, which later became the Oahu Community Correctional Center. During his career he witnessed three hangings as well as inmate strikes and riots. As superintendent of the facility, Olim faced criticism of prison operations. Despite the criticism, Olim survived massive changes in the prison system during the mid-1970s. "He was an honest and fair man. ... He always stuck to his word," said Anthony. "You knew where you stood with him." After spending 40 years of service with the state prison system, Olim retired on July 31, 1981. Anthony Olim described his father as a hard worker who was dedicated to his job as well as his family. "When he left the job, he wasn't the type of guy who took the job home with him," said Anthony. Olim is also survived by son Patrick, sister Augusta Texeira, three grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. Services will be held at 12:30 p.m. Thursday at the Hawaiian Memorial Park.      [SB 2/9/2002]

Ivy Olson - Honolulu's own "Touched by an Angel" story has an ending.  Ivy Olson, 60, died Sunday April 7, 2002 after a long battle with intestinal cancer. Her story had been told on the TV show "Touched by an Angel" in its early run, recounting the true-life Thanksgiving story in which a stranger in San Diego took Olson, then a single mother of two, into her home to feed them. The gesture spurred her to start Angel Network Charities in 1989, which at its height became a $700,000-a-year nonprofit serving more than 100 families on O'ahu and Moloka'i, dedicated to offering the hungry and the homeless a leg up. President George H.W. Bush proclaimed Aug. 16, 1992, as "Angel Network Day," and Olson was chosen as one of Bush's "Thousand Points of Light." Memorial services will be 4 p.m. April 21 at Calvary by the Sea Lutheran Church. Aloha attire is suggested. After the services, her ashes will be taken out to sea in a procession of three canoes. Olson's commemorative marker will be placed in front of the church next month. Olson, who was born Nov. 6, 1941, was a mother of two, stepmother to five and calabash mother to another 15 children, said her husband, Doug Olson, 70, pastor of Calvary by the Sea. "She touched them all in creative ways," he said. "Each was touched in a different way. Nothing was mass-produced. It was hand-crafted." He added that the couple had said their goodbyes during her conscious moments Thursday, but even in her final days, she kept her sense of humor. "I whispered one of our songs, 'Have I Told You Lately That I Love You,' and she said, 'Thank God,' with just a hint of a wry smile," Olson said yesterday. "... She could make any kind of work fun. In any difficulty, she could see a silver lining in it." When they'd travel and he'd grumble, she'd remind him: "This is an adventure!" "Everything was an adventure to her," he said. Ivy Olson is survived by her husband, Douglas, of Hawai'i Kai; sisters, Jennifer Higgins of Oregon and Maureen Thomas of Kula, Maui; sons, Andrew Armstrong of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, and Kevin Armstrong of Hawai'i Kai; stepchildren Rick Olson of Hale'iwa, Olaf Olson of Alameda, Calif., Dawn Yoffe of Sacramento, Calif., Sara Petruna of Cleveland and Daniel Olson of St. Paul, Minn.; 13 grandchildren and stepgrandchildren; and a stepgreat-grandchild. Donations may be made to Angel Network Charities, Healing Touch or Calvary by the Sea Lutheran Church.   [Adv 10/4/2002]

 

Ivy A. Olson founded the Angel Network in 1989 to help the needy because she believed an angel fed her and her two children a Thanksgiving dinner long ago when she had no food. Her husband, senior pastor Douglas Olson of Calvary by the Sea Lutheran Church in Aina Haina, said that when his wife went the next day to thank the woman who fed them dinner in her apartment, the apartment was empty and she was told no one had lived there for a long time. "She promised herself that someday she would be the one to do that -- to be the angel, to bring help," he added. Olson died April 7, 2002 of cancer in her Hawaii Kai home. She was 60. Ivy Olson was born and raised in Bangalore, India. She left for California at 16 to attend high school at Shenandoah Valley Academy, and later graduated from Loma Linda University as a registered nurse.  She was divorced when she met Olson, an Air Force chaplain, at the Tahitian Lanai while she was vacationing with friends in Hawaii. "We met and she never went home," he said. They were married in 1976. His wife was the moving force -- "she was a very, very powerful lady" -- behind the Angel Network. She received a President George Bush's Thousand Points of Light award in 1992, and a Volunteer of the Year award from President Bill Clinton in 1993, he said. The Angel Network provided food, shelter and counseling, but "she had the ability to give people a hand up vs. a handout." "What I loved about her was she was smart and funny and bossy and I'm going to miss all three (qualities). That's my kind of woman. She was not exactly what you'd call a wilting rose -- she was the kind of woman a man likes," he said, laughing. A memorial service will be held at 4 p.m. April 21 at Calvary. Donations may be made to the Angel Network, Healing Touch, or Calvary. She is also survived by her children, sons Kevin Armstrong and Andrew Armstrong of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, Daniel Olson of St. Paul, Minn., Olaf Olson of Alameda, Calif., and Rick Olson; daughters Sara Petruna of Cleveland, Dawn Olson of Sacramento, Calif., and Mina Morin; sisters Maureen Thomas of Kula, Maui, and Jennifer Higgens of Oregon; and brother Rob Higgens of McMinnville, Ore.  [SB 10/4/2002]

Randy Oness - Legendary Hawaiian music composer Randy Oness, who wrote many popular songs including "Lovely Hula Girl," "Haunani" and "Hawaiian Hula Eyes," died Dec. 5. He was 92.  Oness was one of the last true hapa-haole-style composers from the golden years of Hawaiian music. In 1999, he was honored by the Hawai'i Academy of Recording Arts with a lifetime achievement award at the Na Hoku Hanohano awards program. "It's a sad loss because he was not only a pillar of Hawaiian music, but one of our last few Hawaiian speakers," said Hailama Farden, a Hawaiian language instructor at Kamehameha Schools and grand-nephew of the late Irmgard Aluli. Oness was born in Palama and raised in Kalihi. He attended Kamehameha Schools and graduated in 1930. When he was 6 years old, his father took him to Washington Place to shake the hand of Queen Lili'uokalani. Oness began playing the 'ukulele at age 4 for the ladies at Kawaiaha'o Church. He became a serious student of music in the fourth grade under the tutelage of Henri Berger, known as the father of Hawaiian music. When he graduated from high school he went to work for Johnny Noble at the Moana Hotel. Noble was a pioneer in hapa-haole music. Four years later, Oness joined another legendary Hawaiian dance band leader Harry Owens at the Royal Hawaiian. Oness went on to form his own band, which included Alfred Apaka, Alvin Isaacs, Buddy Peterson, Steppy DeRego and Pua Almeida. Farden said hapa-haole music composers "accommodated Hawaiian music by writing in English," and at times the songs were "tacky." "But some of those songs were beautiful, such as those composed by Uncle Randy," Farden said. Farden added that the old-timers such as Oness "can live for ever if our young musicians would care to learn what the legacies that our kupuna have left. Our kupuna have left big notches in the belt of Hawaiian music and in our culture."
