Sarah M. "Aunty Sarah" Kailikea, a composer, chanter and expert in Hawaiian history and culture best known for her work in Nawiliwili, Kaua'i, died Feb. 25 at her home in Kailua, Kona. She was 92. Born in Kipu, Kaua'i, she studied ancient religious practices, chant, hula, legends and language under David Bray and Mary Kawena Puku'i. Along with her late husband, Melvin, Kailikea ran two Nawiliwili concerns: Luau Garden, a nightclub popular in the 1940s and 1950s; and Menehune Gardens, a botanical garden and tourist attraction that featured folklore presentations and cultural shows from 1963 to 1992. During that period she cared for native plants as well as a century-old Chinese banyan tree known as the largest of its kind in Hawai'i. A two-acre brush fire destroyed a large portion of the tree in August 2000. In 1981, Kailikea was a chanter at the inauguration of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs on the steps of 'Iolani Palace. She received a "Living Treasure" award from the Kaua'i Museum in 1995. Kailikea is survived by sons, Melvin Jr. and Malcolm; daughter, Leila Christensen; three grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; brothers, Norton and Joseph Malina. A graveside memorial service will begin at 10:30 a.m. Saturday at Lihue Public Cemetery, Kaua'i. Aloha attire. [Adv 02/03/2004]

 

Sarah Kailikea - Aunty Sarah Kailikea will be buried at 10:30 a.m. Saturday at Lihue Cemetery in what may be one of the largest funerals in the history of Kauai.A living connection to Kauai's history and a cultural icon in the Hawaiian community throughout the state, Aunty Sarah died Feb. 25, 2004 at age 93 at the Big Island home of kumu hula Coline Kona Kaualoko Aiu, her favorite student. "She died peacefully in a grove of coconut palms she had given to Coline 10 years ago," said her son Malcolm. "When she became ill, she wanted to spend her last days with Coline so she could share her wisdom with her one last time." Malcolm Kailikea said he expects many people to attend the funeral. Until Christmas, Aunty Sarah worked in her yard every day. "She was out there with a pick and a shovel and mowing the lawn as always," her son said. But a few days later, she became ill, suffering from congestive heart failure and later a stroke. Born in 1911, Aunty Sarah was a genealogist, a hula master, a chanter, a composer and, as her son described her, "a walking encyclopedia on Hawaiian culture. She had a photographic memory and she was a very gifted teacher." She was a student of both David Bray and Mary Kawena Pukui. On Kauai, her birthplace and lifelong home, she was best known as the feisty and articulate protector of the immense Chinese banyan tree, the largest in Hawaii, that grew in her back yard. The tree was planted some time between 1890 and 1895 by Grove Farm founder George N. Wilcox near what was then his summer home in Nawiliwili. At one time it was the centerpiece of Menehune Botanical Gardens, a tourist attraction operated by Aunty Sarah and her husband, Melvin, who died in 1989. In 1976, she led a fight to have the county declare it an "exceptional tree," which gave it legal protection from damage by neighboring property owners. She returned to the County Council and Planning Commission many times to defend the tree, which kept growing onto adjoining property. "It's my baby," she said in a 1999 interview with the Star-Bulletin. "Feed it and it just grows and grows." The tree stands 110 feet high and 250 feet wide, covers two acres and has more than 1,000 air roots. The botanical gardens were closed in 1992 after Hurricane Iniki and it has not been available to the public since then. A fire in 2000 destroyed a portion of the tree, but it has since recovered. The Kailikeas also operated Luau Garden and it was through Aunty Sarah's authentic shows and storytelling that she taught Hawaiian culture to visitors. In 1995, the Kauai Museum bestowed upon her the title of "A Living Treasure." She is also survived by son Melvin Jr., daughter Lei Christensen, brothers Norton and Joseph Malina, three grand children and four great-grandchildren. [SB 03/03/2004]

CLARA PILA AKANA LEONG KAKALIA - For some 30 years, Clara Kakalia championed a federally recognized Hawaiian nation. When her health failed earlier this year, she told a longtime friend how disappointed she was to have not seen the fruit of her work in her lifetime. "She knew that her time was near, and she was so frustrated because there were so many things that she wanted to do," said Mahealani Cypher, Kakalia's friend and a native Hawaiian activist. "One of those things was seeing the Hawaiian nation recognized." Kakalia, who was also a longtime pillar in the Hawaii Democratic Party, died Oct. 29, 2004 at Castle Medical Center. She was 78. Kakalia was born in Hilo, and started to become involved in politics while serving as a legal secretary at the state Attorney General's Office. She volunteered at election sites, and got involved with the Democratic Party. Soon, she was president of the Women Democrats of Hawaii. Former Gov. George Ariyoshi later appointed her to the state Commission on the Status of Women. Kakalia was a national committeewoman for the Democratic Party from the 1970s to the '90s, participating as an elector in the nominations of presidential candidate Michael Dukakis and presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton. Later in life, she was involved in several Hawaiian advocacy groups. She was chairwoman of two committees at Ka Lahui Hawaii, and also worked with Kukahi. "As she got older, I think she became more strongly drawn to working with Hawaiian people," Cypher said. "She was extremely knowledgeable and knew anybody in town who was anybody. I think she drew a lot of respect." Kakalia was one of four who successfully sued the state over the constitutionality of the Hawaii Sovereignty Elections Council plebiscite to form a new Hawaiian nation. Ballots asked whether native Hawaiians should elect delegates to propose an independent government, and opponents argued it was unconstitutional for the state to get involved in the vote. Even after becoming ill this year, Kakalia continued to attend legislative and Office of Hawaiian Affairs hearings. She would just drag her oxygen tank along, friends said. "She would call a Handi-Van," said her daughter, Leona. "And she'd just go out, holo holo." Kakalia is survived by daughter Leona; sons Leo, Michael, Kaonohi Malama, K. David Malama and Burt Kauhi; brothers Ernest Jr. and Robert and Henry Leong; and sisters Fannie "Kamakolu" Gilman and Eleanor "Nuku" Hanakeawe. Visitation will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Monday at Kawaiahao Church. [SB Nov. 5, 2004]

Solomon "Sonny" Kamahele, a veteran Waikiki entertainer who sang and played Hawaiian music for more than 70 years, died yesterday Feb. 11, 2004 morning in Hilo as entertainer Amy Hanaiali'i Gilliom was singing "Sweet Little Baby" over the phone to him. He was 82. His wife, Margaret, was at his side. "He had a smile on his face," she said. The "Baby" tune that Gilliom sang was written by Sam Koki, Gilliom's grandfather. She said her grandfather wrote it for her father when he was born. " 'Please sleep, little baby,' I sang," Gilliom said. "And he was trying to sing, and he passed on. So I pule'd (prayed) and told Grandma (the late Jennie Napua Hanaiali'i Woodd) to get ready for Uncle Sonny 'cause they worked together in Hollywood. He was one of the true pioneers of Hawaiian music." Koki and Kamahele had performed together in Los Angeles and Kamahele's version of the tune, which was part of his last recording, "Drifting and Dreaming With Sonny Kamahele," was well known. For residents and visitors alike, Kamahele was the epitome of the grand Hawaiian trouper in the golden age of Hawaiian music a dependable and giving musician in hotel showrooms featuring the likes of the late Alfred Apaka. Kamahele was a regular performer on radio's "Hawai'i Calls" and, with his late pal Benny Kalama, was a benchmark in showmanship and artistry. "It was a privilege to sing with him and with folks like Benny Kalama and Barney Isaacs," singer Karen Keawehawai'i said. "He was kolohe (rascally), too. His kind is diminishing too quickly." Alan Akaka, leader of The Islanders at the Halekulani, where Kamahele retired in August, characterized him as an old-school legend. "He started performing when he was 11, so he had a 71-year-run," Akaka said. "He was a perfectionist and a wonderful falsetto singer with tremendous phrasing he learned on his own." The Kamaheles had recently built a home and retired in Hilo. Born Aug. 28, 1921, in Honolulu, Kamahele was mentored by his father, noted performer Sonny Kamahele Sr. Since the 1950s, Sonny Kamahele and his best friend, Kalama, who died in 1999, were the kingpins of traditional Hawaiian music Kamahele on steel guitar, Kalama on 'ukulele. "They're the last of the famed Hawaiian Village Serenaders, so they must be jamming together now," said Akaka. Funeral services are pending but will be held on O'ahu. Survivors include his adopted son, King Kamahele; and stepchildren, Marty Washburn, Barry Washburn, Kim Washburn, Loretta Washburn and Jennifer Hall. [Adv 12/02/2004]

Cherished by surviving children of Hawaii, Nancy Natsue (Cary) Morikawa, William (Kiyo) Kaneshiro, Nancy (Keith) Takamure, Richard Kanagushiku, Harry Kaneshiro, and Clifford Kanagushiku; Helen (Robert) Ruffner, III of San Francisco, James (Eva) Kanagusuku of Seattle, and Jean Mitsue (Charles) Schilling, III of Seattle. Daughter, Florence Kanagusuku, predeceased her. Cherished by siblings, Yoshiko Chinen, Richard T. Tomei, George K. Tomei, Lincoln H. Tomei, Helen H. Uchida, Mary Kimie Clapper, and Alice Mitzie Ihara; also, fifteen grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren. Widowed at age 36, Tsuruko worked tirelessly, and with the help of her father-in-law, Tokutaro Kaneshiro, raised her family. Throughout the difficult years she never complained and loved her children unconditionally. Her eldest son William and his wife Kiyo cared for Tsuruko until she moved to Seattle. She spent the last nine years in Seattle where she was cared for by her daughters Florence and Mitsue. She challenged Alzheimer's disease with her aloha spirit: sparkling eyes, warm smiles, infectious giggle and her detemination to bring "good fun" and joy to everyone she met. Her perfect vision and hearing amazed all of us. In her later years, she enjoyed selecting and eating sweets, reciting her Buddhist prayers including ringing the bell with gusto, watching hummingbirds and butterflies, smelling roses and lavenders, clapping to the music of all genres, collecting shiny stuff, participating in ElderHealth Northwest's day program, wearing hats, singing Hawai`i Pono I, Friday night dinners with son-in-law Charles Schilling and friend Michael Stango, fireworks, and going "holo-holo." She recognized and cheerfully greeted her mentor in life, Daisaku Ikeda, until the last days of her life. Even as Alzheimer's ravished her brain, she never lost her sense of appreciation and dignity for life. Her family is especially grateful to Seattle and Hawaii members of the SGI-USA who embraced her in their lives, to the staff of ElderHealth Northwest, especially Theresa Fan Yamashiro, Kristen Summers, and Karen Ragen, and to caregiver Clorine Williams of Seattle.

GILBERT 'ZULU' KAUHI a former Waikiki beachboy who played the burly detective Kono in the 1960s police drama "Hawaii Five-0," has died. He was 66. Born Gilbert Francis Lani Damian Kauhi on Oct. 17, 1937, on the Big Island, he was better known by the nickname classmates gave him in high school "Zulu" but for TV audiences worldwide, he will always be Detective Kono Kalakaua. Zulu died Monday May 3, 2004 in Hilo Medical Center of complications from diabetes, family members said. The news stunned former co-star James MacArthur, who played Danny "Danno" Williams on the show. MacArthur, who was on a train from Washington to New York yesterday when informed of Zulu's death, burst into tears. "Oh dear, oh my gosh," he said. "I didn't know. ... Several weeks ago, he called me. Oh dear. He made it on the list for a kidney transplant." MacArthur was so shaken, he couldn't compose himself. "I have many happy memories of Zulu," he said. "On 'Five-O,' he helped us understand how to say those Hawaiian words. I'll miss him." Zulu, who lived in Hawaiian Paradise Park, was in poor health for a few years. He had kidney problems, suffered several strokes and at least two heart attacks, said his brother, Allen Kauhi. Kauhi said Zulu received a kidney transplant about 18 months ago at St. Francis Medical Center, but his body rejected the organ and it had to be removed. Zulu was hoping for another transplant, but seemed to be in the hospital a lot. "He was fighting the thing," Allen Kauhi said. "I'm surprised he lived this long." Zulu was a popular Waikiki beachboy in 1968 when he joined the CBS drama for its first season. He was cast as a burly Hawaiian detective who worked for the show's star, Jack Lord. "I know those were his enjoyable days," said his 82-year-old mother, Emma Kauhi. "He was always full of excitement and he had many friends. " The show helped launch a successful nightclub career for Zulu, who sang and joked to packed houses in and around Waikiki. In early 1971, Zulu signed a five-year, $2.5 million contract to appear in the C'est Si Bon Showroom in the Pagoda Hotel & Restaurant. But in December that year, he was out with "Hawaii Five-0." Zulu was fired after an altercation with the show's publicist in which he acknowledged making loud racist comments. "I need something different," he said in a newspaper interview at the time. "I've had it with the 'yes boss, no boss' routine." Zulu wound up as a headliner for several years at Duke Kahanamoku's in the International Marketplace. But he left there in 1972 amid harsh words about the quality of the musicians provided. After that, he performed at Neighbor Island hotels and did benefits and even changed the spelling of his nickname, briefly, to Zoulou. He said it was the French Tahitian spelling. A few years later, he had gone from entertainer to promotions manager for an automotive operation. In 1986, Zulu was convicted of second-degree negligent homicide for a Big Island traffic accident that killed a bicyclist training for the Ironman Triathlon. Ronny Lee Fennell of Kona was hit from behind by Zulu, who was fined $500 and sentenced to a year's probation. Funeral arrangements have not been set for Zulu, his mother said. "He had always stressed to me that he wanted to be buried in Waikiki," Emma Kauhi said. "He wanted a beachboy funeral but he never made any arrangements at all. So we are scrambling now on who to contact and how to go about it." [Adv May 7, 2004]

James "Jammer" Keanu - The shrinking fraternity of Waikiki beachboys lost another longtime member this week. James "Jammer" Keanu, an avid surfer and Kuhio Beach fixture for decades, died Sunday Dec. 5, 2004 . He was 81. Friends called him Jammer because he was a hard-charging guy and the beach disciplinarian. If someone didn't behave, Keanu would "jam" him up. In later years, friends shortened it to "Jama." He was an Army veteran who served in World War II and the Korean War before retiring in 1971. After that, he was an Island Holidays tour escort for many years. Keanu was born Oct. 16, 1923, in Honolulu. He lived in Kalihi as a young child but by the time he was 10, his parents had died and he and his brothers went to live with an aunt and uncle in Kapahulu, not far from the beach. "He was always sociable, nice to people, never got angry," said his 79-year-old friend, Raymond "Atuk" Chang. Chang met him in 1940 and they had been friends ever since. They hung out with other ocean-loving youths, including Keanu's older brother, famed surfer Rabbit Kekai. All of them were avid surfers, but Chang remembers how Keanu would paddle a mile or more offshore to Steamer Lane where huge waves sometimes broke. "He was a very good surfer," Chang said. They lived at the beach "seven days a week," he said. "We'd sleep down at the beach like the homeless," Chang said. "We'd sleep right on Kuhio Beach by the lifeguard stand." Keanu joined the Army in World War II and his military career took him away from Hawai'i from 1957 to 1971, said Jojo Keanu, his wife of 49 years. He turned down Mainland job offers when he retired, she said. "He said, 'I gotta get back to my sand and water,' " Jojo Keanu said. For much of his life after that, he was an avid surfer. As a tour escort, he often traveled to the Neighbor Islands and stashed surfboards everywhere to catch whatever swell might be breaking, his wife said. As often as possible, Keanu and the other beachboys would head to Kuhio Beach to hang out and do what beachboys do best: surf and teach surfing by day and sing and party by night. But that changed when Keanu suffered a stroke in 1996. Although he recovered from early stroke-related paralysis, his surfing days were over, Jojo Keanu said. Keanu is survived by his wife, Josephine "Jojo" Keanu; sons, Jammer T. "Squeaky" Keanu and James M. "Boomer" Keanu; daughters, Tehanei Ferreira and Pinky Keanu; and brothers, Rabbit Kekai, Hank Kekai and Martin Kaninau. Keanu will return to the ocean one last time. His ashes will be scattered offshore of the Moana Surfrider Hotel on Dec. 19. Services begin at 8:30 a.m. at the Honolulu Elks Lodge 616. Military honors will be given at 9 a.m. Bus transportation will take mourners to the beach for Keanu's final journey. [Adv Dec. 10, 2004]

Dennis Quan Keong - Manoa resident Dennis Dung always told his children to do their best and to never take life too seriously. "He was such a wonderful, wonderful man," said daughter Denby, who was crowned Miss Hawaii 2001. "He was patient, kind and encouraged us to be who we wanted to be." Dennis Quan Keong Dung, father of three beauty queens, died at the Queen's Medical Center of pancreatic cancer on March 27, 2003. He was 62. Inurnment service will be held at 11:30 a.m. Monday at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. The service is being held at this time because of a lack of niche space at the cemetery at the time of Dung's death. Dung obtained a bachelor's degree in business administration, a professional certificate in business education and a master's degree in educational psychology. While he studied toward his master's degree, Dung served as the assistant director for the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education program. In 1967, he joined the Hawaii Air National Guard and retired as a master sergeant after almost 34 years of service. Family members described him as a strict yet loving father who was always optimistic and had a quick-witted sense of humor. "He was always there. He was a wonderful listener. He loved being around people," said Annette, Dung's wife of 42 years. The couple first met when they attended Stevenson Intermediate School. "We were 13 years old when we met," said Annette. "It was almost 52 years of friendship." For 27 years, Dung worked as a special education teacher at Kailua High School. He enjoyed hunting, martial arts, fishing and taking summer trips with his family. Dung and his wife were also friends of the late martial artist Bruce Lee. "He always taught us to never give up. He was never a quitter," said daughter Darah Dung. "He was a man of few words but when he spoke, he always said something significant," said Denby. The couple's only son, Dean, described his father was family oriented. "He taught me that family always came first," said Dean, who resigned as an officer from the Honolulu Police Department after his father died to take care of his mother and sisters. He is now studying criminal justice at the University of Hawaii. Dung was also supportive of his three daughters who collectively won several pageants. Denby and Dana-Li Dung in 2001 were the first sisters to compete at the same time for the title of Miss Hawaii. The youngest sister, Darah, was crowned Miss Hawaii Teen 2000, Miss Kauai 2002 and the local and national title of Miss Chinatown 2003. Dana-Li was crowned Miss Petite Hawaii USA 2002, Miss Kauai 2003 and Miss Chinatown 2004. "He taught me more than I could ever learn from a book," said Dana-Li through a phone interview from San Francisco. "He had a presence that I can't even explain." Dung died on Dana-Li's birthday. "I now think of it as our day," said Dana-Li. "I think about him every day, but more so on that day." Dung also is survived by mother Nancy; sisters Billie and Patsy and brother Dixon.

Edward Killingsworth, one of the last Case Study House architects, whose elegant, precise designs for small residences to Hawaiian luxury-class hotels made him one of the leading Southern California modernists of his era, died of natural causes July 6 at his Long Beach, Calif., home. He was 86. Killingsworth was one of a handful of architects chosen to participate in the Case Study Houses, a post-World War II experiment in domestic architecture conceived by Arts and Architecture magazine editor John Entenza to promote the redefinition of the American home through modernist design and cost-effective materials and construction. Entenza selected the architects, whose efforts resulted in 36 prototype homes that could be easily and inexpensively constructed during the postwar housing boom. Some two dozen of the designs were carried through to completion, of which the majority were built in Southern California. Killingsworth's work on the Case Study Houses eventually brought him to the attention of Hilton Hotels, which hired him to design what became Honolulu's Kahala Hilton (now the Kahala Mandarin Oriental). Set on a private lagoon, the main building is a 10-story structure in the shape of two rectangles that Peggy Cochrane, writing in the book "Contemporary Architects," called a work of art distinguished by its overall "elegant informality." Soon after its 1964 opening, the Kahala Hilton became a favorite hangout of royalty and the Hollywood elite and boasted occupancy rates well over 90 percent. Its success led Killingsworth and his firm to design several other resort hotels in Hawai'i, including the Halekulani Hotel, the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel and the Kapalua Bay Hotel, as well as the Bali and Jakarta Hilton in Indonesia and the Hilton in Seoul, South Korea. In Bali, he employed Balinese sculptors and other local craftsmen to "create a great piece of Balinese architecture that will incidentally be a hotel," he once said, explaining the respect for indigenous architecture that was at the center of his philosophy of hotel design. "It is so good to be in a space where the spirit can soar, and, with all of this, it must soar with the sense of balance and proportion set up by the spaces we create," he said in an essay for "Contemporary Architects." "What better goals in life can there be? To create a condition where you can really see the spirit soar?" The effort to reflect local culture was a hallmark of his achievements as a hotel designer, according to Sam Hurst, emeritus dean of the University of Southern California School of Architecture and Fine Art, who worked with Killingsworth to design the school. "His work was more sensitive to individual cultural conditions, client conditions and environmental conditions," Hurst said. "His Kahala Hilton exemplified that. Anyone who went there had a strong sense of being in Hawai'i but being in a very distinctive, modern building." Killingsworth, who was born in Taft, Calif., originally aspired to be a painter or sculptor. "I would rather paint than eat," he once told an interviewer. He painted as a USC undergraduate but wound up studying architecture, earning his bachelor's degree in 1940. During World War II, he served as a captain in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and was awarded the Bronze Star. He is survived by his wife of 61 years, Laura; sons Greg and Kim; five grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. [Adv July 15, 2004]
