Yukio "Yuki" Okutsu, a Medal of Honor recipient and World War II veteran, lived for two things -- his family and the 442nd, his son said. "He told me he'd never forget his buddies from the war," said Wayne Okutsu, adding that his father moved to the Big Island from Kauai to be closer to his comrades from the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, Fox Company. Okutsu died Aug. 24, 2003 in the Hilo Medical Center. He was 81. Born Nov. 3, 1921, and raised in Koloa, Kauai, Okutsu spent 18 months in combat in Italy, where he used grenades and his submachine gun to neutralize three German machine gun positions on Mount Belvedere on April 7, 1945. He was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross and returned to Kauai in December 1945. He donated the medal to the Kauai Museum. "My father was like that -- a real generous man," Wayne Okutsu said. "He wasn't a showboat. He just wanted to give Kauai something to be proud of." In 2000, Okutsu's Distinguished Service Cross was upgraded to a Medal of Honor after Congress ordered the Army to review its records to see if anti-Japanese sentiment during the war prevented the soldiers from getting full recognition. President Clinton presented the nation's highest recognition for valor in combat to Okutsu at a ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, D.C. In an interview with the Star-Bulletin in 2000, Okutsu said: "I knew they were going to upgrade some of the medals, but I didn't know if I was going to be in there. ... I never thought about it. What the heck, we're too damned old already." But Okutsu was never too old to take care of his friends. He and several other veterans from the 442nd Fox Company used to take their friend Toshio "Hoxie" Nagami on a walk every Tuesday and Thursday morning. Nagami was injured during the war and later suffered a stroke, which left him a quadriplegic. "Every day since Hoxie had his stroke, they'd pick him up, crank him up, stick him in a chair and they'd all go walking," Wayne Okutsu said. Their walk would end each day at Cafe 100 (named after the 100th Battalion), where they would sit and talk story. "They never lost sight of Hoxie. As more of them retired, more joined the walk," Wayne Okutsu said, adding that the 30-year-old tradition was his father's favorite thing to do. Okutsu had trained as a watchmaker in Kansas and moved to the Big Island, where he worked for Hawaii County as a mechanic. He retired in 1985 as superintendent of the County of Hawaii parking meters branch. Wayne Okutsu recalled his father as a quiet man who loved to fix watches and tend to his two acres of anthuriums. Okutsu died a month after he was diagnosed with stomach cancer.  "I see how tough he was," Wayne Okutsu said. "It's different from the normal toughness. He's bigger than life already. He's bigger than all of us. He always was." Okutsu is also survived by wife Elaine Okutsu; son Randal; brothers Seiji, Tsuneo and Paul; sisters Gladys Endo, Mitsuko Matsuura, Fukuyo Tanaka, Margie Shinn, Betty Thomas and Rachel Akazawa; eight grandchildren; and two great grandchildren. Services will be held at 4 p.m. today at Honpa Hongwanji Hilo Betsuin. Inurnment is set for 10 a.m. tomorrow at Hawaii Veterans Cemetery, No. 2 in Hilo.    [SB 07//09/2003]

Hiroshi "Molokai" Oshiro, who owned one of the only two service stations on Lanai for many years, died Wednesday. He was 82.  In 1952, Oshiro left his diesel mechanic position on the isle's pineapple plantation to open Oshiro Service Station. Born on the Big Island's Hamakua Coast in or around Laupahoehoe on March 1, 1921, Oshiro moved to Molokai at the age of 8. He moved to Lanai when he was in his late teens to work for the pineapple plantation. In the 1950s and '60s, he also drove the school bus between Kaumalapau and Lanai High School in Lanai City. Over the years, Oshiro expanded the service station business with vehicle rentals and a tour bus operation. After semiretiring in the 1980s, he added an auto parts store. The service station was also where many of Lanai's young people got their first job, including son Glenn, who took over the business in the 1980s. "He was known as a very crusty individual, but he had this outstanding sense of humor that allowed him to get away with it," said Glenn Oshiro. Charles Yara, who began working at the service station when he was 12 or 13, recalls Hiroshi Oshiro as a strict but fair boss. "He got after us for goofing off as kids would do, but in a fatherly way, not a mean way," Yara said. Yara started out pulling weeds, then pumped gas, greased cars and changed tires, and said it taught him to work efficiently and well. Glenn Oshiro said his father believed in the kids in the community and supported them academically. "Dad was very proud of the fact that so many of his employees did so well money-wise, academic-wise, just being good people," he said. "I think in many respects he was proudest of those guys who were supposed to end up in Oahu prison." Oshiro is also survived by wife Genevieve, son Clyde, daughter Patricia, brothers Tejiro and Shichiro, eight grandchildren and a great-grandson. Services will be at 11 a.m. Saturday at Lanai Hongwanji Mission. Additional services will be held at 1 p.m. Sunday at Moiliili Hongwanji Mission on Oahu. Casual attire. No flowers. Donations suggested to Hospice of North Hawaii.    [SB 29/07/2003]
