Teddy Randazzo, a rock icon from the 1950s who composed classic hit songs such as "Goin' Out of My Head" and "Hurt So Bad," died Friday November 21, 2003 in Orlando, Fla. He was 68. Randazzo also was a major player on the Island recording scene, producing and arranging Keola and Kapono Beamer's best-selling song and album, "Honolulu City Lights," and composing such signature tunes as "I Love You" for Marlene Sai and "Salty Tears" for John Rowles. "I talked to him several weeks ago, hoping to put on an acoustic concert," said Tom Moffatt, one of his longtime friends who first introduced Randazzo to Island music fans through the groundbreaking "Show of Stars" revues at the old Civic Auditorium. "He was a rock-era pioneer; we've known each other for at least 45 years, and he became family." Randazzo was in the process of writing a song called "I Never Got the Chance to Say Goodbye," with his longtime collaborator, Bob Weinstein, at the time of his death, according to Rosemary "Shelly" Kunewa Randazzo, his local-girl wife. "He was such a good man, who loved the people and the spirit of Hawai'i," said his widow. "He always told me he was a misplaced Hawaiian." Shelly and Teddy had been married 25 years and met through Tom and Sweetie Moffatt. "I was doing promotions with Sweetie for Hawaiian Airlines, flying back from Bermuda, and he (Teddy) was picking her up in New York; I saw him afar, and I didn't know him as a rock star. I asked her, 'Who's the guy with the white hair? (Randazzo was prematurely gray)." They got to know each other when Randazzo was in town, staying with the Moffatts in Nu'uanu. Moffatt, a deejay, recording industry executive and show presenter, first met Randazzo when he was lead singer with a group called the Three Chuckles; they performed at the old Civic Auditorium, the first rock venue in Hawai'i. Their early hits, included "Won't You Give Me a Chance" and "Richer Than I," which Randazzo didn't write. As a solo recording artist, Randazzo also produced chart-busters such as "Little Serenade" and "The Way of a Clown." He performed in Honolulu in recent years, in shows staged by Moffatt. Randazzo, a native of Brooklyn, was born into a musical family on May 13, 1935. At 15, he was recording with The Three Chuckles. In the early years of rock, he co-starred in rock revues staged by legendary disc jockey Alan Freed, appearing with such artists as Chuck Berry and LaVern Baker, said Moffatt. Randazzo also had starring roles, and often performed, in such rock films as "Hey, Let's Twist," "The Girl Can't Help It," "Rock, Rock, Rock" and "Mr. Rock and Roll." With composing partner, Weinstein, they churned out a string of major hits for Little Anthony and the Imperials, including "Goin' Out of My Head," "Hurt So Bad" and "I'm on the Outside Looking In." "I've been blessed, really lucky, to have all these good songs," Randazzo said in a 1998 Advertiser interview. "I could live without doing the shows, because royalties provided an income." "Goin' Out of My Head" was never a No. 1 song for Little Anthony, but when The Lettermen combined it with "Hurt So Bad" in a recorded medley, the tunes became pop classics, recorded by a gamut of industry giants, from Frank Sinatra to Dionne Warwick. "I've lost count on how many versions there are," he said. Randazzo apparently died in his sleep. An autopsy was pending. The couple, which had five children, lived part of the year in Honolulu, where Shelly has family. "The legacy for our family is the love he showed the kids," said Shelly Randazzo. "(The fans) may know his music, but we know the kind heart, giving person, he always was." The survivors are sons Alika, Joshua and Giovanni; daughters Skye and Dominique, all of Orlando; and, from an earlier marriage, a son, Teddy Randazzo Jr., and a daughter, Elisa Rose Schwartz, both of California.

Dr. Allen B. Richardson, a gifted surgeon whose reassuring presence warmed the Rainbow Wahine bench as team physician for 25 years, died Monday Sep 1, 2003. Richardson, 56, had been battling cancer. His loss was mourned by those who knew him personally and professionally. For most, it was both. That is how Richardson approached his work, particularly as a volunteer at the University of Hawai'I "What I liked so much is that he felt like I did," said Dr. Ralph Hale, who asked Richardson to assist with the Rainbow Wahine in 1979. "It was like he was taking care of family and he always did what was best for the athlete, not only in their immediate athletic environment, but also for their future. "It will be a tremendous loss. There are not very many people of Allen's capabilities, dedication, willingness and interest." Richardson, a 1965 Punahou graduate, received his B.A. degree from Yale and attended UCLA's School of Medicine. He stayed in Southern California for his internship and residency. He and his wife, Olympic gold medalist Pokey Watson Richardson, were both age-group swimmers. While she coached the USC swim team, he trained for a year at the renowned Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic, concentrating on athletic injuries and coming in on the cutting edge of arthroscopic surgery. That "solidified" his decision to pursue sports medicine as a career, according to Pokey. Later, he referred former UH All-American and Olympian Deitre Collins to the respected clinic. Athletes made it a habit of calling him after their careers were over because, as UH trainer Melody Toth put it, "He was internationally renowned he knew everyone and everyone knew him." Besides, Richardson encouraged them to keep in touch. "My career lasted much longer than I could have ever imagined because of him," said Collins, now UNLV's coach. "I lasted until I was 31. That's pretty good considering I had a surgery every year of my career at Hawai'i. I got to know him pretty well." Richardson joined UH as an orthopedic consultant and team physician in time for volleyball's first national championship in 1979, and never left. He was also a partner, and ultimately president, at Orthopedic Services of Hawai'i, and Chairman and Director of the Orthopedic Residency Training Program at the John A. Burns School of Medicine. Richardson was active in international swimming, attending six Olympics and serving as sports medicine chair for the U.S. team and Federation Internationale Natacione Amateur (FINA). All his sports medicine exploits came about "serendipitously," according to Pokey. He got involved with international swimming initially because he joined her on a trip. Ultimately, he was instrumental in the sport's medicine and drug testing programs. "He was very methodical and logical and detailed," Pokey recalled. "He asked the U.S. Swimming office for reports from the last trip, a list of medications for the athletes. They didn't have anything like that. "He came back and wrote a very thorough report. U.S. Swimming went, 'Oh my God, wow.' It saw his vision of how it could be and asked him to create the sports medicine department." The Rainbows knew to respect Richardson as a physician and surgeon and appreciate his quick, clear analyses of injuries. They grew to respect him as a friend, realizing quickly that his gentle, comforting demeanor was as genuine as his interest in their well-being. "He was handsome, he was kind, and just calming and reassuring," Collins said. "Not once did I ever fear going into surgery and not once did I consider my career being over because of surgery. That's just the comfort he gave me." Rainbow Wahine volleyball coach Dave Shoji shared a passion for golf with Richardson, who took trips to Scotland and Ireland to play legendary courses. But his most compelling legacy in a life of remarkable success might be that wonderful demeanor, particularly in times of trauma. "He was truly one of the nicest people I'll ever know," his wife said. "He had a really nice, gentle demeanor that facilitated people working together. He was a very pro-active individual who could look at any situation and come up with a plan to deal with it positively. That's how he handled this entire cancer process. He was diagnosed five years ago this month. He handled it with great dignity and grace, moving forward one step at a time, going forward as much as he could." The Richardsons have three children. Andrew is a senior on the Cal water polo team. Annie is a Division III All-American and Academic All-American in water polo at Claremont-McKenna. Puna is a freshman volleyball player at St. John's. Services will be Sunday at Kawaiaha'o Church, following the 4:30 p.m. family visitation. UH is planning a tribute at tomorrow's volleyball match. [Adv 03/09/2003]

DAVID ROCHLEN - When family and friends gather on Waikiki Beach today to scatter the ashes of clothing entrepreneur David Rochlen, they will remember a man who combined "truth and beauty" with a sense of fun. Rochlen, founder of the longtime aloha shirt labels Surf Line Hawaii and Jams World, died April 13. He was 78. "He was fun-loving, passionate about life and work and art," said Pua Rochlen, the youngest of his five children. His family described him as a Renaissance man: a designer, motorcycle enthusiast, talented waterman and "sometimes eccentric philosopher." Rochlen was born in California, the son of a Russian-born journalist and a nurse from New England, and grew up enjoying the beach lifestyle. He served in the Marines in World War II and later received a degree in clinical and industrial psychology from the University of CaliforniaiLos Angeles. On one of his many visits to Hawai'i in the late 1940s and early '50s, he met his future wife, Keanuenue. The couple did not permanently move to Hawai'i until the early '60s. Soon afterward, Rochlen opened his surfboard store, Surf Line Hawaii, across from Ala Moana Center. Because he could not readily find clothing he thought to be colorful and unique, he started his Jams line of surfwear patterned after cut-off pajama bottoms. The surf shop and apparel line evolved into Jams World, a resort-wear style that continued to reflect Rochlen's philosophy. "It had to do with truth and beauty," said Pua Rochlen, now president of Jams World. "He wanted people to understand the difference between good and great. It wasn't what you paid for it, it was what you got out of it." Visitation begins at 9 a.m. today at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel, with services starting at 10 a.m. Ashes will be scattered about 11:30 a.m. near the Castles and Old Mans surf breaks offshore of the Natatorium..

Lawrence R. Rodriggs, who witnessed the Pearl Harbor attack as a boy and devoted much of his life to publicizing civilian accounts of that devastating day, died on May 14, 2003 in his Newark, Calif., home. He was 70. "Larry had played an integral part helping me ... with telling the civilian story and making sure that part of the story is not forgotten," said Daniel Martinez, National Park Service chief historian at the Arizona Memorial. In 1991, Rodriggs completed the book "We Remember Pearl Harbor," a collection of 50 civilian stories including his own. "This is the only book solely devoted to the civilian experience on Dec. 7, 1941," Martinez said. Rodriggs frequently visited the Arizona Memorial, lecturing, signing his book and sharing stories with visitors. "His loss is significant because Larry had so much he didn't put in the book that was part of his records and recollections," Martinez said, adding that Rodriggs had been gathering stories since he was a young man. Rodriggs was a 9-year-old heading to church on Dec. 7, 1941, when he saw hundreds of Japanese planes flying overhead. He believed that Oahu residents suffered greatly, "not only with the casualties, but just the overwhelming terror of what the next day might bring," Martinez said. Rodriggs related how his father, a deliveryman whose vehicle was used to carry war casualties, became emotionally withdrawn after witnessing the carnage of the attack. He had hoped the state would one

day award a medal to all Oahu civilians who witnessed the attack for their help in defense and rendering aid, similar to the medal awarded to military survivors. Born Dec. 27, 1932, in Wailuku, Rodriggs graduated from Saint Louis College (high school) in 1950. He worked two years at Pearl Harbor, served a short stint with the Naval Reserve, then earned a public relations degree in 1958 from San Jose State University. He worked 30 years in public relations with Blue Cross of California. Rodriggs is survived by wife Jean, sons Steven and Michael, brother Bill and six grandchildren. Services are tomorrow at 4 p.m. at St. Edward's Catholic Church in Newark, Calif. [SB 26/05/2003]

Max Roffman - Hawaii labor leader and senior citizens advocate Max Roffman died Oct. 3, 2003 in Seattle. He was 93. "He was completely honest and made a tremendous contribution to the labor movement, bringing its voice on a weekly basis over public television's 'Rice and Roses' program," said social activist Ah Quon McElrath. In 1953, Roffman came to Hawaii at the request of UPW leader Henry Epstein, who was "having difficulty in attracting blue-collar workers into the UPW of Hawaii," said Ed Beechert, a historian who taught labor history and education at the University of Hawaii. Roffman arrived to an anti-labor atmosphere in Hawaii, with plantations convinced they could get rid of unions, Beechert said. "Max walked into this and was very successful in persuading the blue-collar workers to join the union at a time when the state was anti-labor," Beechert said. "Hawaii didn't have collective bargaining for public workers, so it was a tough time for people organizing government workers," McElrath noted. Roffman first began organizing refuse collectors. "They were a pretty tough bunch of mostly Hawaiian guys," said close friend and retired UPW and ILWU attorney Jim King. "And they liked him. "He was never one of those guys who would jump up and yell and shout at the podium," King said. "He was always cool and collected. He impressed a lot of people, and they respected him." Beechert said: "He had great courage and had a way of persuading people -- very gentle, but very firm."Roffman worked as Oahu division director until 1968, then served as education director, all along serving as UPW's chief lobbyist. He retired from the union in 1974 and went to work for the Center for Labor Education and Research at the University of Hawaii. He also produced the "Rice and Roses" labor program on public television from 1975 to 1981. Then in 1981, he went to lobby for the Kokua Council for Senior Citizens, an advocacy group for seniors, persuading the Legislature to pass a renter's tax credit and to double the tax exemption for homeowners age 65 and older, Beechert said. The American Civil Liberties Union awarded him the Allan F. Saunders Civil Liberties Award in 1984. Roffman moved to Seattle that year where he continued his work for senior citizens. Beechert described Roffman, a self-educated man, as an intellectual who enjoyed writing mysteries and plays.


Born on April 11, 1910, in Brooklyn, N.Y., Roffman went to work right after high school. His first job as organizer was in 1935, when he started organizing social security workers in Baltimore. Roffman is survived by wife Marian, son Daniel, daughters Norma Cucci and Laurie Roffman, and a granddaughter. Private services will be held in Seattle. [SB 10/10/2003]

LOUIS "CHICO" ROSA, a former Territorial bantamweight and featherweight boxing champion, who went on to become a Fullerton, Calif., according to family members. He was 78. Rosa, who was born in Honolulu, came from a well-known boxing family that included his brother Gus and uncle Adolph Samuels. Rosa appeared in rings in Hawai'i and California in a professional career that spanned the 1940s and '50s. "Chico was a main event guy who fought them all," recalls Bobby Lee, former executive secretary of the Hawaii State Boxing Commission. "He was a good boxer, puncher; a real tough fighter in his day." Rosa fought some of the best of his era, among them Dado Marino, David Kui Kong Young, Sandy Saddler and Gabriel "Flash" Elorde. Rosa's biggest victory came over Saddler before 13,000 at Honolulu Stadium in 1948. Rosa overcame repeated low blows to take a split decision. "Saddler should have been disqualified, but Chico still won the fight," Lee recalled. Ring Magazine publisher Nat Fleischer, who was in the audience, subsequently raised Rosa up in the world rankings, Lee said. Four months later, Saddler knocked out Willie Pep in New York to win the world featherweight title. Services are pending in California. [Adv 13/03/2003]

Alan Hazzard Rowan, who taught values and developed champions, died early yesterday Feb 12, 2003 at Straub Hospital. Rowan, 76, had suffered two heart attacks since Feb. 1. He was the dominant coach in high school track and field in Hawai'i, winning 21 state championships and 30 Interscholastic League of Honolulu titles in 37 years as head boys coach at Punahou School. Rowan coached Olympians Henry Marsh and Dacre Bowen, but was most proud of instilling values in all of his athletes "to do their best ... to see if they can reach their potential ... whether they win or lose ... ," he said in a 1992 Advertiser interview. Doug Bennett, who coached and taught with Rowan at Punahou for 26 years, yesterday said, "Al got the most out of great athletes as well as also-rans. He took care of the little guy as well as the future Olympians. He cared about all the kids." Doug Kilpatrick, who was associated with Rowan as student-athlete, fellow coach and meet official for 48 years, called him "the personification of track and field." "Al had the unique ability to create and develop individual talent and merge that talent into (championship) teams." Ford King, who coached with Rowan for 20 years, said, "He was able to get the best out of everybody he ever coached, not by driving or pushing or forcing but by encouraging them." Punahou often won championships with few first-place finishes, but superior depth and strategy. "He was the combination of technician, strategist, organizer and motivator," Bennett said. "He left no stone unturned as head coach." When Rowan retired in 1992, Punahou ranked ninth in the United States in state high school track and field championships. He was chosen National High School Boys Track Coach of the Year in 1986. "He was outstanding in analysis of an athlete's talents and at developing those talents to peak performance at league and state championship meets," said Ralph Martinson, who was Punahou athletic director during most of Rowan's tenure. "He was, affectionately, 'Big Al' to his athletes," Martinson said. "He was a wonderfully kind and caring man about his students and his athletes, very positive in terms of dealing with people and meticulous in his planning and his teaching." Rowan's team won the first Hawai'i High School Athletic Association championship in 1959, and won 12 of 14 between 1967 and 1980. But Rowan said, "Winning a championship is not the most important thing. It's whether the kid has reached his potential." "The rewards of coaching come when you get them started doing something that's positive and they go from that point onward. . . that's education," Rowan said in the 1992 interview. Marsh, a member of the 1972 state champions, said, "Few people shape our destinies and Al was one of those people for me. I was fortunate that I got the guidance that led to an Olympic career, No. 1 (steeplechase runner) in the world and the (U.S. Track and Field) Hall of Fame. "But more important, there were hundreds and hundreds of other athletes who did not make it to the Olympics, but he had an impact on their lives and what kind of people they were." Rowan started high school cross country in Hawai'i and coached Punahou to the first boys state championship in 1965. Rowan himself ran track at University of Southern California, where he graduated in 1951. He taught three years at Mid-Pacific Institute before moving to Punahou in 1955. He was born in Pa'ia, Maui, in 1926 and graduated from Maui High, then entered the service. "I was constantly impressed with Al's outer island work ethic, reliability, and insistence on values," Kilpatrick said. "Al always upheld his end of the bargain." In addition to coaching, Rowan taught physical education and biology at Punahou and was chairman of the P.E. department. After his retirement from Punahou, Rowan taught kinesiology classes at University of Hawai'i for six years. He remained involved in track as official starter for weekly high school meets, league and state championship meets and at UH. And he continued to be "Mr. Track" in Hawai'i, an invaluable resource to coaches, fans and newspaper reporters. Kilpatrick noted, "If someone needed answers, comments, perspectives or historical references, there was only one answer 'call Al Rowan,' " Rowan and wife Janet, who died in 1995, were active in the Hawai'i Kennel Club and the Fox Terrier Club of Hawai'i for about 20 years. In fact, Rowan and his daughter, Lindy, were walking his fox terrier, Kelly, when he was stricken Feb. 1. In addition to Lindy, a Honolulu physician, Rowan is survived by a son, William, a teacher and coach in Medford, Ore., and a brother, Jack, in Huntington Beach, Calif. A memorial service will be held at 5 p.m. Monday at the Punahou School chapel. Private family services over his ashes will be held later. [Adv 13/02/2003]
