Robert Taira built his business from a three-stool coffee shop in Hilo to one of the largest retail bakeries in Southern California. And his wholesale operation has turned King's Hawaiian Bakery sweet bread into the top-selling sweet bread in the country.  Taira, founder of King's Bakery, died of cancer Thursday


in Torrance, Calif. He was 79.  "Robert was extremely forward-thinking," said Shelby Weeda, president of King's Hawaiian Bakery. "With a dream and a loaf of bread, he went to the mainland and built his bakery."  Born in Hilo Nov. 5, 1923, Taira grew up in Kohala on the Big Island.  After serving as an interpreter in the U.S. Army for the occupying forces in Japan, Taira foresaw a demand for Western bakery products in Japan after World War II.  So he attended the Chicago Institute of Baking, graduating in 1949.  But with the start of the Korean War, Taira abandoned his plans to open a bakery in Japan and opened up his first coffee shop in Hilo. He then opened a larger coffee shop and bakery on King Street in Honolulu, and later opened several others, all featuring the sweet round loaves.  In 1977, Taira opened a wholesale bakery, King's Hawaiian Bakery, in Torrance.  He opened a retail bakery and restaurant in Torrance 12 years ago and a second last year. In 1993, he closed his Hawaii bakery and coffee shops.  The company employs more than 300 people and is building a third restaurant.  In the late 1980s, Taira handed the reigns to son Mark, now chief executive officer, while he became chairman of the board. He also served as vice chairman of City Bank.  Taira is also survived by wife Tsuneko; sons Curtis and Vaughn; daughters Laurene and Stella and 11 grandchildren.     [SB 04/06/2003]

Wah-Chan Thom  -  Chinese community leader Wah-Chan Thom, founder of Honolulu's Narcissus Festival and a man who embodied the virtues of learning, business and culture, died Wednesday at age 102.  The son of immigrant owners of the old Wah-Chan store in Waikane, Thom supported himself through McKinley High School, won a University of Hawai'i scholarship from merchants after he saved one of them in the 1926 Chinatown fire, and earned a master's of business administration degree from Northwestern University in 1929.  He served as president of a dozen Chinese organizations, ran a series of businesses, fought to the U.S. Supreme Court for civil rights, and was repeatedly honored as a calligrapher, poet, father and citizen.  "We knew growing up," daughter Lois Mui said yesterday, "that he was 'not just anybody.' "  But what she and sister Adele remember best was this outwardly stern and extremely busy man building for them an aqua-blue double study desk, or lying with them in their Bingham Street yard and watching the clouds to see what creatures they resembled.  They also remembered the centenarian's prescription for a long and healthy life, which left him of sound mind up to his death.  "He used to say, 'I never smoked, I never drank, I never ate chocolate — and I never exercised, and I made sure to eat lots of good, fat pork,' " Mui said.  Thom came up with the idea of the Narcissus Festival pageant in 1949 to preserve Chinese culture — and to generate more business in Chinatown.  After he retired in 1969 from a career in real estate, retailing and Kona coffee merchandising, Thom turned to Chinese calligraphy and poetry, for which he was recognized as a Hawai'i State Cultural Treasure in 1988, and invited by the Smithsonian Institute to the Festival of American Folklife in 1989.  He headed the Chinese Chamber of Commerce and several organizations, including See Dai Doo Society, Chung Wah Chung Kung Hui (Hawaii Chinese Labor Association), Chung Shan Association, Hawaii Chinese Education Association and Chinese Cultural Association.  After World War II, he helped re-establish the legality of language schools that had been banned in Hawai'i, turning for help to the American Civil Liberties Union in a case that went to the U.S. Supreme Court.  Mui said he was not only an example for his family, but also a window into the adventurous lives of his immigrant parents, Heong Thom and Yook-Heong Ching Thom.  His father emigrated from China to California to make a fortune panning for gold and serving as camp scribe for other Chinese, lost it all and then came to Hawai'i to buy a rice farm in Hanalei and later the country store in Waikane. The new language the couple learned was Hawaiian, not English.  Wah-Chan Thom was married to the former Jannie Kwai-Jun Luke from 1932 until her death one month short of their 66th wedding anniversary in 1998.  He is survived by his brother Wah-Hui; sisters Ruth Au and Florence Chiau; daughters, Lois Mui and Adele Chang; son Roland; nine grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.  Visitation will be 3 p.m. Thursday at Borthwick Mortuary, followed by a service at 5 p.m., and interment at 11 a.m. Friday Feb. 7 at Manoa Chinese Cemetery. The family requests no flowers. [Adv 31/01/2003]

 

Wah-Chan Thom  -  Community leader and internationally recognized Chinese calligrapher and poet Wah-Chan Thom died Saturday Jan 25, 2003 at the age of 102.  In 1988, Thom was recognized as a state cultural treasure and was selected by the Smithsonian Institution to represent Hawaii at its 1989 American Folklife Festival. He was also selected as Hawaii Chinese Living Treasure in 1982 for his calligraphy and poetry. "When the poet writes, it takes five words to capture what could be said in 50," said Reuben Wong, president of the Chinese Chamber of Commerce. "I doubt there are more than two or three in the Chinese community who could do this." Thom was often asked to write Chinese couplets in calligraphy on long scrolls adorning the stages of special events, which "captured the essence of the occasion or the organization and brought good wishes to the event," Wong said. Thom was an artist-in-residence at the Ramsay Museum in Chinatown. He was also recognized for his vast knowledge of Chinese history and culture. "Mr. Thom was truly a living treasure in the Chinese community and will be sorely missed," Wong said. During World War II, language schools in Hawaii, mostly Japanese language centers, were closed, and Thom pushed for their re-establishment, daughter Lois Mui said. A lawsuit was filed with the help of the American Civil Liberties Union, and the U.S. Supreme Court later ruled the schools should be allowed to reopen. He "helped spearhead the right of parents to educate their children in a language other than English and that it was not un-American," Mui said. Thom also helped found the 54-year-old Narcissus Festival, designed to stimulate business in Chinatown. "He formed a committee to get a group together to revitalize Chinatown ... to attract visitors and local people back into Chinatown," said Henry Lee, executive secretary of the United Chinese Society. A leader in the Chinese community, Thom headed numerous Chinese societies, where he encouraged old and young to get involved, Lee said. Born April 4, 1900, in Waikane, Thom attended McKinley High School, graduated from the University of Hawaii and got a scholarship by Hawaii Chinese businessmen for saving a life in the 1926 Chinatown fire. He received a master's in business administration from Northwestern University. In 1932 he married the former Jannie Kwai-Jun Luke. Thom founded and managed W.C. Thom & Co. and Nu Enamel Co., was vice president and manager of Young's Department Store and owned and managed Mid-Pacific Kona Coffee until he retired in 1969. Thom is also survived by daughter Adele Chang, son Roland, nine grandchildren, five great-grandchildren, brother Wah-Hui Thom and sisters Ruth Au and Florence Chiau. Visitation is at 3 p.m. Thursday at Borthwick Mortuary; service, at 5 p.m. Interment is at 11 a.m. Friday at Manoa Chinese Cemetery. No flowers. "I call him the great sage of Chinese culture and calligraphy, and no one could match that," said Wesley Fong, past president of the Hawaii Chinese Civic Association and the Chinese Chamber of Commerce, of which Thom was emeritus director.     [SB 31/01/2003]

Gene Thompson, a tireless advocate for Maui's fastest-growing community whose energy and leadership mobilized armies of citizens to save beaches and plant trees, died Saturday  Dec 20, 2003 at age 77. Services are planned for late January. Thompson at one time headed the Kihei Community Association, which became the most effective organization of its kind on Maui, and worked to establish an islandwide council of community associations to address common concerns. "If there was a public hearing he would be there giving testimony," said Jan Dapitan of the nonprofit Community Work Day program, which organizes cleanups and other beautification activities. "He really jumped into the life of the community. If you needed to know about South Maui, you called Gene Thompson." Thompson also is credited with revitalizing the Maui Outdoor Circle, and served as its president for three years in the late 1990s. One of his first fights was successfully challenging plans by retailing giant Costco to install a large sign at its store near the Kahului Airport, said Jeannie Pezzoli, who would later lead the group. Under his leadership, the Outdoor Circle kept a close eye on new developments, ensuring plantings and shade trees were installed along roadsides and in parking lots. "Gene was so creative in understanding what the solutions were. ... He just didn't do a lot of talking, he cut through the red tape and got it done," said Pezzoli, who is assistant dean of instruction at Maui Community College. "He had a great enjoyment of outdoors and how plants and trees bring sense and sensibility to our lives." Thompson was born June 28, 1926, in Santa Clara, Calif. After serving in the Army and working for NATO in Europe, he began buying old homes and restoring them with his life partner of nearly 40 years, Jack Esker. The two men were later honored by the state for preserving historical buildings in Petaluma, Calif. Thompson and Esker first vacationed on Maui in 1971 and six years later they moved to the island. Thompson worked as a property manager until retiring in 1981, when his volunteerism kicked into high gear. Using plantings and sand fences, he marshalled other volunteers to restore Kama'ole Beach Park II in Kihei after severe erosion caused by major storms in 1980 and 1982. Kama'ole Beach Park I would later benefit from Thompson's efforts. His recruits wore T-shirts that identified them as Kama'ole volunteers, and Dapitan said she remembers getting down on her knees beside Thompson to plant naupaka, 'aki'aki grass and morning glory to stabilize the shoreline. "He was a person who saw a need and took charge, and he recruited other people and got them just as involved as he was," Dapitan said. He also was active in the Maui County Arborist Committee and Bikeways Maui, and walked the beach as a member of the "turtle patrol" that protected nesting sea turtles and hatchlings. Last month Thompson was celebrated by county officials and the community as honorary chairman for Arbor Week 2003, and was honored by the Maui Outdoor Circle at a separate event. Sue Kiang of the county Department of Parks and Recreation said his last major project was tree plantings on the medians along Ka'ahumanu Avenue, Central Maui's main thoroughfare. "Rather than just coming in and grinding the county about what they were not doing he always came with a solution and a way that citizen participation could make it happen," Kiang said. Esker said Thompson was diagnosed with prostate cancer in July. He regained his strength and up until about six weeks ago was continuing to weed and groom the landscaping at a small traffic triangle he had "adopted" where Mokulele Highway meets North and South Kihei Road. Thompson died at home under hospice care. He is also survived by a sister, Joyce Raineri, and a brother, James, both of California.  [Adv 24/12/2003]

Elizabeth "Sister" Leihala Renken Topolinski, mother of kumu hula John Renken Kaha'i Topolinski, died Sept. 14, 2003 in Honolulu. She was 83. A descendant of Hawaiian chiefs, she will be buried Saturday amid rarely seen traditional rituals and regalia. Topolinski was born in Honolulu and in the late 1930s and early 1940s was a musician who, with her sisters, formed a singing trio that performed at the Princess, Hawaii and Liberty theaters. Her father, Ernest Renken, was a tenor with Charles E. King's touring opera company and a musician with Johnny Noble's Moana Hotel Orchestra. But the focus of her life was the raising of her family, her son said. "Mother was basically the pulse of the entire family," Kaha'i Topolinski said. "Her main thing in life was to educate her children, and make them aware of who they are, both their Hawaiian and their haole side. "She taught us to be proud of who you are, but don't be arrogant. The family was the source that nourished all of us."The Renken family descended from Hakaulalapuakea, an ancestor of Kamehameha the Great, and from Chief Nu'uanu and Chiefess Hulihei on O'ahu, he said. At her funeral service, Topolinski's halau will chant in receiving her remains, and serve as bearers of the kahili and pulo'ulo'u, respectively the standards of the ali'i and kahuna classes of ancient Hawai'i. Following the service, her genealogy will be chanted as her casket is taken to the grave, draped in traditional feather capes, he added; the capes will be removed as the casket is interred. She is survived by her husband, John; daughter Velma Ululani Topolinski-Vegas; son John Renken Kaha'i Topolinski, six grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren and a step-great-great-grandson. Visitation is from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. Saturday at O'ahu Cemetery Chapel, with a service at 11 a.m. Burial at the cemetery will be at noon, with luncheon to follow.

Donald M. Topping, a retired University of Hawaii professor and advocate for medicinal marijuana, died Sunday Mun 29, 2003 at his Manoa home. He was 73. Born in a suburb of Huntington, W.Va., Topping spent more than half his life in Hawaii. For 35 years he worked for the University of Hawaii as a linguistics professor and administrator. Topping believed that everyone should teach, his wife, Priscilla, said. Topping also researched Micronesian languages, wrote and edited the Chamorro-English Dictionary and served as director for the Pacific and Asian Linguistics Institute and the Social Science Research Institute. Topping co-founded the Drug Policy Forum of Hawaii in 1993 and served as president for 10 years. He and the group pushed for the legalization of medical marijuana in Hawaii. "His last work was his favorite," Priscilla Topping said. He really liked "educating people about the dangers of drugs and telling them the truth." The Drug Policy Forum persuaded former Gov. Cayetano to back a bill to legalize medicinal marijuana in Hawaii. Topping battled cancer for about 15 years. "He's the kind of man who believed in the rights of the common person," Priscilla Topping said. He believed "everyone deserved to live in peace and dignity, and no one should be left behind." Ted Plaister, a friend of Topping's, said, "He was perhaps the most honest person I've ever known in my life in terms of his beliefs." Topping is also survived by sons Miles and Lee Minh Topping, and Jason Kesolei; daughters Dee Johnson and Leslie Jensen; eight grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren. Family and friends will scatter Topping's ashes at his favorite surf spot off Diamond Head. Services are private, but contributions in Topping's name may be made to the Drug Policy Forum of Hawaii.
