Ralph Yempuku never saw an event he couldn't promote, whether it was the roller derby, circus, a musical act, boxing or sumo. Yempuku brought professional sports and top rock 'n' roll acts to Hawai'i, created the Aloha Classic college basketball all-star games, and helped to promote world champion boxers in the Islands. But promotion was Yempuku's second career. During World War II he served with military intelligence's Office of Strategic Services as a translator and parachuted behind enemy lines in Burma to organize guerrilla troops. For service to his country Yempuku was honored in 1997 with the Legion of Merit citation. Attorney Ted Tsukiyama, who served with Yempuku during the war, called Yempuku one of the bravest men he's ever known. "I consider him one of the heroes of World War II," Tsukiyama said. Yempuku died yesterday July 9, 2002 in Honolulu at age 88. He was born on a plantation in Papa'ikou on the Big Island, but the family moved to Kahuku when he was a child. Yempuku graduated from McKinley High and the University of Hawai'i, where he joined the ROTC. He volunteered with the Territorial Guard when World War II broke out, but soon after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, Yempuku and his fellow Nisei guard members were classified "enemy alien" and their services were no longer needed. Rather than retreat, the Nisei convinced the Army to allow them to serve as volunteers at Schofield Barracks. The group which became known as the Varsity Victory Volunteers was led by Yempuku. The Triple V disbanded in 1943 when the Army began taking Nisei volunteers for active duty. Many of the men joined the famed 100th Infantry Battalion and the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, but Yempuku volunteered with the Office of Strategic Services. He was a member of the "Merrill's Mauraders" that sneaked behind enemy lines in Burma to destroy the Japanese supply lines and communications and to play havoc with the enemy forces. He later parachuted onto Hainan Island to liberate Australian and Dutch prisoners of war. "You got to be brave to be willing to operate behind the Japanese lines," Tsukiyama said. "If you got caught, you would have been tortured and even executed. That was a high risk. You can't get any braver than that." Following the war, Yempuku returned to Hawai'i and began his long career as a promoter. Yempuku was vice president and co-owner of Boxing Enterprises, along with the late boxing Hall of Fame promoter Sad Sam Ichinose. [Adv 10/7/2002]

John Yoshikawa, a well-known Nanakuli farmer and businessman and one-time Golden Gloves champion, is dead at age 39 from injuries received in a work-related accident Nov. 24. Yoshikawa, operator of Eco-Feed Inc., a company that recycles excess hotel and restaurant food for pigfeed, died Nov. 29, 2002. He sustained severe head injuries in the Nov. 24 accident, although it is not known exactly what happened because he was alone at the time of the accident, according to relatives. Two workers heard a loud crash and went to investigate. They found his body on the ground between a fork lift and a feed bin. Yoshikawa never regained consciousness, said his aunt, Loretta Freitas of Kane'ohe. People who knew Yoshikawa described him as a gentle person who was devoted to his family and friends, and someone who would go out of his way to help just about anyone. He owned a small ranch in 'Ewa Beach and was fond of throwing get-together feasts, said his longtime friend, Tony Smith of Kane'ohe. On Thanksgivings he would imu a dozen turkeys and deliver them to friends and family on both the Wai'anae Coast and in Windward O'ahu. Smith said Yoshikawa could walk into nearly any store on O'ahu and someone would recognize and greet him. "He would give you the shirt off his back," said Smith, who grew up with Yoshikawa in Waimanalo. "He was not at all judgmental. He saw the good in everyone. If you were down, he would do what he could to help." Yoshikawa's operation to convert food waste into hog feed became controversial after neighbors complained about the smell. Yoshikawa said he had equipment failures and was trying to solve the problem. Recently the state attorney general's office, which had fined Eco-Feed for various violations, said negotiations to resolve the issue ended last summer with Yoshikawa saying he would get out of the business. Smith and Freitas said Yoshikawa rarely spoke about his business difficulties. "He just kept those things to himself," said Freitas. "He never complained or burdened others with his problems." Wai'anae Coast resident William Aila called Yoshikawa an "innovator who was always trying to improve waste products." But he said Yoshikawa got caught in the type of clashes that sometimes occur when rural hog operations, which smell bad, come in conflict with people who build homes nearby. Yoshikawa had worked at and managed other feed businesses before starting his own hog lot and feed concern in Nanakuli. He graduated from Kailua High School in 1981, and in 1984 he won the state Golden Gloves championship in the 139-pound weight class. Yoshikawa is survived by his wife, Gina; sons John-Paul, Damon and Cyrus; daughter Angelina; stepchildren Alvin and Shanalle; parents Clarence "Paul" and Elizabeth "Betty;" sister Elisa "Buddy" Repolio, and brothers Matthew and Patrick. Services for Yoshikawa will be from 6 to 9 p.m. Dec. 11 at St. Jude Catholic Church in Makakilo. Mass will be celebrated at 7 p.m. Burial will be at 1:30 p.m. the following day at Mililani Memorial Park. Arrangements are being handled by Moanalua Mortuary. [Adv 05/12/2002]

Richard "Dickie" Young - Retired Honolulu Fire Department Chief Richard "Dickie" Young, who was a rookie firefighter when Pearl Harbor was attacked in 1941, died Nov. 23, 2002. He was 85. Young also was a resident manager for the Princess Leilani condominium for 18 years. Young was born Aug. 2, 1917, in Honolulu and attended St. Louis School. He joined the Honolulu Fire Department in April 1941; eight months later, he found himself dodging bullets while fighting fires during the Dec. 7 attack. Attilio Leonardi, the present fire chief, said Young was the last surviving Honolulu firefighter who was on duty during the attack. Three firefighters were killed and six wounded. "He responded and one of the persons with him on the same truck got killed and another was wounded," Leonardi said. "So he was right in the heart of the battle, eight months in the department." After the war, Young worked himself up the ranks and in 1959 was named deputy chief. In 1966, he became the department's 22nd chief, replacing William Blaisdell, who died in office. "He had big shoes to fill," Leonardi said of Young. "Chief Blaisdell was a very popular chief. His brother (Neal) was the mayor so the department made great strides. It was Dickie Young's responsibility to carry on, which he did." Young is credited with developing the fire science program at Honolulu Community College. Before that, there were no classes for potential firefighters to take. Leonardi said many of today's firefighters have gone through the program. Capt. Edward Amina, a fire veteran, said Young also was responsible for expanding the department from one-man stations to the present level of staffing. "At that time we had Chief Blaisdell and the mayor was his brother and they were a great team," said Amina, who has been with the department since 1963. "When (Chief Blaisdell) died, that teamwork continued under Chief Young. He carried on that dream of Chief Blaisdell." Young retired from the department in 1969 and became the managing agent for the Princess Leilani condominium. Young is survived by his wife, Lenore; son, Richard Jr.; daughters, Maydene Simmons, Laura Chong and Collette Jeremiah; eight grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; and a great-great-grandchild. Visitation will be 9 to 10:45 a.m. Saturday at St. George Catholic Church, Waimanalo, with a eulogy at 10:45 and Mass at 11:30.; burial 1 p.m. at Hawaiian Memorial Park. [Adv 04/12/2002]

 

Richard "Dickie" Young - Retired Honolulu Fire Chief Richard "Dickie" Young had been a firefighter just eight months when Japanese warplanes bombed Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. He was sent to put out fires at Hickam Air Field but instead found himself under fire. "One man on his crew was killed, another was wounded," said Attilio Leonardi, the current fire chief. Young died Nov. 23, 2002. He was 85. He was also the last surviving Honolulu firefighter on duty during the attack. Young remained a Honolulu firefighter and went on to become fire chief on Feb. 1, 1966. Mayor Neal Blaisdell appointed him to the post after the previous chief, William Blaisdell, the mayor's brother, died in office. Young retired from the Honolulu Fire Department on Jan. 2, 1969, and went on to serve 18 years as the resident manager for the Princess Leilani Condominium. Leonardi said Young played a key role in the development of the fire science program in the community colleges. "He was a real advocate for education," Leonardi said. Waiau Fire Capt. Eddie Amina is one of a few firefighters still in the department who worked for Young. Amina said Young was a well-respected deputy chief and chief. "He took care of his people, his men. He was always smiling and he always remembered your name," Amina said, "If you see him, even years later, he will call you by name." Kailua Fire Capt. Walter Makaula said Young had a quiet personality which contrasted with the boisterousness of Blaisdell, the previous chief. Young is survived by wife Lenore; son Richard Jr., a firefighter at the Pawaa Fire Station; daughters Maydene Simmons, Laura Chong and Collette Jeremiah; eight grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; and one great-great-granddaughter. Visitation is from 9 to 10:45 a.m. tomorrow at St. George Catholic church in Waimanalo, followed by the eulogy at 10:45 a.m., Mass at 11:30 a.m. and burial at 1 p.m. at Hawaiian Memorial Park.

Ray Yuen, former editor of the Hawai'i Tribune-Herald, died at his Pauka'a family home near Hilo on Saturday morning May 11, 2002 after a long battle with cancer. He was 87. Yuen spent 39 years at the Tribune-Herald, the last 12 as editor. Later he worked on the staff of U.S. Sen. Hiram Fong Washington, and in Hilo with federal programs before his semiretirement. He never fully retired, according to his son, Chris, who said his father pored over volumes to find just the right quote for his daily contributions to the Tribune-Herald's editorial pages. That effort began in 1996 as the "Daily Quotation," and later was expanded to include "The Daily Verse." Walt Southward, who worked with Yuen in the early 1960s, called him "probably the last of a kind for Hawai'i." Southward said Yuen started in 1935 as a $10-a-week advertising salesman, then went on to work as sports and news writer and eventually as editor from 1962 to 1974. Eugene Tao, a retired editor at the paper who worked for Yuen as a government affairs reporter, recalled him as simply "a very fair person." Others described him as a man who died with as much grace as he had lived. In February 2001, the "Us Too" group of prostate cancer survivors publicly saluted Yuen for his "courageous fight" against the disease. "He is an inspiration to us all," remarked Richard Matsunaga, retired Hilo High principal who leads the prostate cancer group. Yuen was preceded in death by his wife of 50 years, Alice Yuen, a former journalist and librarian who died in late 2000, also of cancer. Even though he never attended college, Yuen was an early advocate of college education on the Big Island and campaigned through his editorials for four-year status for the University of Hawai'i-Hilo. Both Yuens were charter members of the Big Island Press Club for nearly 35 years. Funeral services by Dodo Mortuary were pending. Family members said Catholic services were planned, probably for Friday. In addition to his son Chris Yuen, an attorney and Hawai'i County's planning director, Yuen is survived by son Andy of La Jolla, Calif., and daughters Mary Lou Kobayashi of Honolulu, Lori Sasaki of Kona, Julie Cryan of Hilo, and 10 grandchildren.
