Solomon Kalapawai Mahoe Jr., a son of the Hawai'i of bygone days, left a small bit of himself in many people, some of whom are scattered to the four corners of the globe.  "He had the capacity for being thrilled with all that was going on around him," his daughter Nani Mahoe said. "His friends probably number in the thousands." However, those who gathered at his Kailua family home Saturday to bid him a fond farewell were an intimate group by Hawaiian standards, only about 150 or so. Even during the planning phase, weeks in advance, his daughter knew it would be an emotional occasion.  "Hawaiians have a way of singing and dancing and laughing and crying, a catharsis," she said.  Yesterday, in a private family observance, the tapa-decorated urn containing his ashes was sunk in the sea off Kailua Bay that he loved as much as his life on land. About 30 people took part in that ceremony, Nani Mahoe said.  The sense of loss, she said, is profound for those who knew him. Even for those who didn't, the Sept. 25, 2004 death of "Uncle Solo" should be noted, his daughter said, because he represented a way of life that is ebbing rapidly.  "My father was like an ambassador of good will," Nani Mahoe said. "He took his culture with him and was very engaging. He had that personality so that people were drawn to him."  The official records showed Solo Mahoe to have been 90, she said, but he often claimed to be a year older than that. In any case, he was his parents' first-born child and, by tradition, was given to his grandparents to raise.  So the customs he learned, the outlook on life, were far older than his years.  He was a native speaker of Hawaiian, Nani Mahoe said, and grew up in Maunawili, then a mix of rice fields, banana groves and papaya trees.  "Daddy's early years in Hawai'i were idyllic," she said. "He says it was so quiet that he could hear his tutu's whistle to call him home.  "Daddy rode his horse everywhere, down to the beach, up over the Pali to town ... everything moved at its own natural pace."  Through his life he worked as a Waikiki lifeguard, raised pigs, owned a lunch wagon with his wife, was a civilian public works employee during World War II and a city roadwork foreman thereafter.  If such activities constituted his livelihood, fishing was his life. At a Kailua town reunion almost two decades ago, he recalled learning to fish with his grandfather, setting out in a boat on Kawainui Marsh, which in those days was an open lake.  Solo's middle name refers to the land, near the beachside shop of the same name, owned by the Mahoe clan for many years. He knew of countless spots for fish, lobster and octopus, Nani Mahoe said.  "We are told that our 'aumakua (family god) was the shark, and as such, offerings were made to the mano at a special family shrine close to Kane'ohe Marine Base," she said.  A grandnephew, the well-known kumu hula Chinky Mahoe, said "Uncle Solo" would befriend just about anyone he encountered, including the tourists who found their way to Kailua Beach, then considered a remote location.  "Today, you don't find people having the aloha that he had," he said. "He just gave freely. There's not too many people that will hang out by the beach and entertain the tourists."  He married the former Mona Park; the couple had three daughters — not counting the many hanai kids adopted into the household.  "I remember as a child my father swimming in dark blue ocean with sharks," Nani Mahoe said. "I watched the top fin cut through the water, frightened. Daddy reminded me that I should not be afraid of the shark — they would not hurt us.  "However, I told him that I was only half-Hawaiian and maybe the shark would only see the Korean in me."  He was widely traveled, bringing his Hawaiian language and culture with him. Nani said he outlived almost all his contemporaries, leaving only a half-brother among his elder 'ohana. His friends at the end of life were largely the children and grandchildren of those befriended decades earlier.  "He felt his life was one of fun," she said.  At the ceremony at her home on Saturday night, there were many remembrances, song and stories about Solo Mahoe. "Good fun," was a phrase heard many times. "It was good fun," the people who remembered Solo said. "All good fun."  At the conclusion of the celebration, Nani performed a hula in memory of her father. The title was "I'll Remember You."  Then yesterday, his friends and family took his ashes out onto Kailua Bay.  Solo Mahoe had chosen as his final resting place a large ginger jar with tapa print.  "He said, 'This is going to be my house.' And he was specific, telling us to attach the lid but not seal it. This is so when he was ready to leave he could get out," Nani said.  "He said, 'When I'm ready to leave, I want to frolic in the ocean, tickle the ladies and sun on the beach." Born in Kailua. Retired Public Works road foreman for the City & County of Honolulu with more than 25 years of service.

Tom Malone, who ended Aloha Petroleum Ltd.'s dependence on local refineries and transformed the company into a chain of service stations, died Monday Aug 23, 2004. He was 65.  Malone came to Hawai'i in 1988 as Aloha's president and CEO and took over a struggling business on the verge of disappearing.  "There's no question that Tom has really been the savior of the company," Bob Maynard, Aloha's vice president and chief financial officer, said yesterday. "He made the Aloha gasoline brand. Before, it was a backwater, second-tier brand. Now we're thought of pretty highly by the community."  Malone invested in upgrading the look of each station while building the company's own fuel storage terminal in Campbell Industrial Park — completed in 1997 — as well as a smaller one in Hilo.  "The key to our survival was that building in Campbell, which allowed us to import product at world market prices," Maynard said. "Without that, we would have been split up, sold off as units or bought up by another entity or entities. Our whole economic structure would have been different."  Personally, Maynard said, Malone had a reputation as a driven, astute businessman who could "be very demanding and tough. But he had the biggest heart and softest side you can imagine and a wonderful sense of humor."  Malone is survived by his wife, Janet; sons Michael Thomas of Oklahoma and Christopher Edward of Texas; daughter Stephanie Gail of California; and his mother, Erma Baskett, of Oklahoma City.   Services are pending.

Yoshiko Masuoka, co-founder of Masu's Massive Plate Lunch in Liliha, died July 28, 2004 at Maluhia Hospital. She was 91.  Masuoka was born in Honolulu and was raised in Japan until she was 16, then returned to Hawai'i.  She worked as a professional seamstress most of her life. Then, at age 60, she opened Masu's Massive Plate Lunch.  The lunch spot first opened in Kaka'ako in 1974. Around 1980 it moved to the superblock where Wal-mart is building its store. Masu's eventually moved to Liliha around 1990. The walls at Masu's are decorated with pictures of entertainers and other celebrities. Masuoka was a diminutive woman driven by a strong work ethic and sense of fairness, said her son Paul, who opened the business with her. She worked at the restaurant into her 80s.  "I remember when we used to do catering and we had to make 4,000 meatballs, and it's by hand, yeah?" Paul said. "And I said, 'Oh, Mom, look at all the hamburger.' And she said, 'You don't look at that side. You look at this side, the part that's finished. If you look at that side, naturally you're going to get tired. But,' she said, 'look at what you finished.' "  She would never tolerate swearing, even from customers. "But for some reason they loved her for that," Paul said.  One customer likes to recall how, when he was 13 years old, he would come to Masu's with his friends after surfing, Paul said.  "They would come as a bunch and everybody would eat but this one guy," Paul said. "And she would say, 'Aren't you going to eat something?' And he says, 'No, I'm not hungry.' But after surfing, you're hungry. And so my mother knew that he didn't have money. So she always made him rice and gravy."  The business ran into financial problems after the Gulf War, when layoffs at Pearl Harbor and a slowdown in construction hurt businesses on Liliha Street. The company filed for bankruptcy but managed to emerge successfully three years later.  "She had a good life," Paul said. "She touched so many lives."  Masuoka was preceded in death by her husband and is survived by her children, Edwin, Paul and Maizie Okimoto; six grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren.  A memorial service will be held at 5 p.m. Aug. 8 at Hosoi Garden Mortuary. No flowers; casual aloha attire. .    [Adv July 30, 2004]

Francis A. McHale Jr., a well-known and innovative marine construction engineer and leader in alternative energy, died June 2 at his home in Honolulu. He was 70.  McHale moved to Hawai'i in 1966 and worked for Hawaiian Dredging & Construction Co. for 33 years before retiring in 1999.  During that time, he participated in ocean technology projects that wrote him into the history books, according to his peers.  "Frank was an original thinker who pushed the limits of every endeavor he undertook, especially in pursuing new energy concepts for Hawai'i," said Tak Yoshihara, a former state energy director.  His most groundbreaking work was to assist the state, Lockheed and Dillingham International — Hawaiian Dredging's parent company at the time — in the development of an experimental plant that created thermal energy from a mix of seawater: cold water from the depths, and warm from the surface.  McHale was project manager for Mini-OTEC, the world's first successful working ocean thermal energy plant, said John Craven, a top scientist in the federal government's submarine programs in the 1960s and Hawai'i's marine affairs coordinator under Gov. John A. Burns.  Craven said when Mini-OTEC was proposed in response to the energy crisis of the early 1970s, he insisted on a single project manager to coordinate the undertaking for all three partners. McHale got the job, and Mini-OTEC successfully created 100 kilowatts of energy.   "Eventually," Craven said, "it will be a major, major source of energy."  Research and development of the large pipelines needed for ocean thermal energy conversion paved the way for the Natural Energy Laboratory of Hawai'i at Keahole on the Big Island.  McHale's management at Hawaiian Dredging also advanced the construction of the Clarey Bridge, which spans Pearl Harbor to Ford Island. The floating concrete bridge has the world's longest movable span opening.  McHale was a low-key person who had a way of deflecting the spotlight away from himself and toward the project, Yoshihara said.  "However significant his contributions were," he said, "I will remember him best for his friendship."  McHale loved tugboats, his friends said, and was a member of the team that restored the Navy's USS Hoga.  The Hoga had helped to ground the USS Nevada when it was hit during the attack on Pearl Harbor, keeping the damaged ship from blocking the channel.  McHale was born in Providence, R.I. He attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and graduated in 1961 from the Cornell University School of Civil Engineering.  He was an Air Force veteran. Later, he was a member of the Navy League.  McHale is survived by his wife, Sharon McHale of Hono-lulu. He leaves a daughter, Kara Eastwood of Glen Ellyn, Ill., and a son, Christopher J. McHale of San Mateo, Calif.  A memorial service will be held 2:30 p.m. Saturday at Calvary by the Sea Lutheran church in 'Aina Haina. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Christian Children's Fund, 2821 Emerywood Parkway, Richmond, VA 23274. McHale was buried in the family plot at Mount St. Mary Cemetery in Pawtucket, R.I.   [Adv  June 22, 2004]

Barrett Melvin  - When the lights first appeared every morning, one man would loudly declare to everyone, "Welcome to the beautiful Leilehua Golf Course."   Such announcements stopped years ago and the man behind them, Hawai'i Hall of Fame golfer Barrett Melvin, quietly passed away Monday May 31, 2004 morning at Wahiawa General Hospital.  He was 86.  Described as a well-mannered man, Melvin is remembered for his golf ethics as much as his respect for others on the course.  "He kept telling (our children) 'manners, manners' on the golf course," said Vicki Melvin, his wife of 60 years. "If you whispered or turned your head when someone was putting, he would tell you not to do it again."  Tom Hrdlicka, owner of Tom's Golf Shop in Wahiawa, said Melvin "had a lot of respect for the other individuals no matter what kind of game they were playing."  Melvin was inducted into the Hawai'i Golf Hall of Fame in 2000, decades after leaving his mark on the local golf scene.  Besides winning the PGA of Hawai'i Match Play Championship in 1950 and the inaugural Navy-Marine Open in 1951, he was also a head pro at the Kalakaua and Leilehua courses. Melvin also served as pro and manager at Maui Country Club from 1952 to 1954 and built and operated several local courses and driving ranges. He also held course records at Kalakaua and Fort Shafter.  On a national level, Melvin qualified for the U.S. Open 11 times and the PGA Championship from 1948 to 1951.  "He loved playing competitive tournament golf with his heart and soul," Vicki said.  Born and raised in Pennsylvania, Melvin was the son of a long line of Scottish pros. He learned to make golf clubs at the age of 8 and by the time he was 14, he won a state high school golf championship. He made his first U.S. Open appearance when he was 16.  Melvin came to Hawai'i in 1942 as a U.S. Army lieutenant and met Vicki on Kaua'i. She remembered their first meeting when he agreed to stop smoking if she went out with him.  They were married in 1944. He then went on to serve in Saipan, Iwo Jima, New Guinea and other places in the Pacific during World War II.  Both of his sons, Buzz and Edward, joined the military, but only Buzz, the eldest child, took up golf.  "(My father) insisted that it was a really simple game," Buzz said. "You master a few basics of the game, hone your skills and after that, you'll be just fine."  Despite retiring in 1987, Melvin continued playing golf.  "He had a real good game. He even played up until about eight years ago," Hrdlicka said.  Around that time, the death of his best friend and golfing partner, and the theft of his golf bag that included two clubs given by his father took the game from him.  "He missed them (clubs) more than anything else," Vicki said. "He searched and looked all over the shops for those two (type of) clubs. He said he'll never buy another set. He knew he was fading."  For the past several months, osteoarthritis and age began taking a toll on Melvin's 6-foot-2 frame. He was confined to his bed and put on a liquid diet. Having difficulty speaking, he would smile or squeeze someone's hand instead.  Vicki, who was a foot shorter than her husband, cared for him and recalled a time when she rested her head on his chest. Melvin gently patted her head and whispered, "I'm so sorry mommy."  Besides Vicki and his two sons, Melvin is survived by daughters Bari Wynn Ruiz and Heather Melvin, six grandchildren and sister Wilhelmina Russell.  A private service is being planned.    [Adv June 3, 2004]

Gaylord Leslie Mercer  -  Hawaii's Uncle Sam is being memorialized today with his old red, white and blue uniform and top hat resting on his casket. Burial services for Gaylord Leslie Mercer, who played Uncle Sam in the Kailua Fourth of July Parade for 38 years, are being held today at Borthwick Mortuary. The retired salesman, 88, from Hawaii Kai, died Monday Jan 12, 2004 at the Maunalani Nursing and Rehab Center in Kaimuki. Mercer was "a true patriot, a real trouper, a real soldier, even though he didn't wear a (military) uniform," said retired Army Lt. Col. Darrell Large, a friend and neighbor. Because of an injury, Mercer was unable to serve in the military, but he made up for it, Large said. "He took such pride in this (being Uncle Sam). He would say, 'Whenever I get this Uncle Sam uniform on, I feel like a different person.'" Large drove Mercer on the back of his convertible for a couple of years so he could still be a part of the Fourth of July parade after he broke his thigh bone in 2001. Mercer handed out flags to children, and even grew his own beard because marching in the sun made the fake ones fall off, said his daughter, Lynn Mercer DeFelicis. DeFelicis said her father, born in Springfield, Mo., also appeared at various military and civic events in the community, following his initial appearance as Uncle Sam for the Hawaii Bankers Association to promote savings bonds. Mercer was "very gregarious and always shook people's hand," she said. "He was very sweet, very kind and very generous ... a warmhearted spirit. He was without pretension." DeFelicis said she asked Large to promise her father the day before he died that Large would take over as Uncle Sam so her father would not worry. Large said he did so, but he will not make a full commitment "until I know I can represent Uncle Sam and at least do honor to it," he said. "I don't want to be so far below (what he did). He has big shoes to fill." Mercer gave his support to such organizations as the Hawaii Foodbank, the Boy Scouts and the Hawaii Blood Bank, donating 140 pints of blood throughout his life. He was a lifelong member of Kiwanis International and a member of the Prince of Peace Lutheran Church for more than 40 years. Mercer also was a champion mile runner in college until a severe heel injury ended his running career and made him ineligible for the military. But it did not stop him from running local marathons in his 70s, long-distance swimming and riding his bike up Kaimuki's hills, DeFelicis said. Mercer is also survived by wife Shirley O. and two grandchildren. Visitation at Borthwick is at 9 a.m. today, with a service at 10 a.m. The family requests aloha attire and no flowers.  Donations may be made to the Prince of Peace Lutheran Church or other charity.      [SB 16/01/2004]

Robert C. Miller   -  The world of journalism has lost a foreign correspondent from the old school.  Robert C. Miller, who covered five wars for United Press International and led the wire service's Honolulu bureau for many years, died yesterday at his home in Hilo. He was 89.  Miller's globe-trotting exploits were once described as the kind of glamorous career that inspired young journalists. The stories he wrote bore datelines from exotic places: Da Nang, Phnom Penh, Burma, Sydney, Tokyo, even Antarctica.  "He was a legend, a marvelous, wonderful storyteller," said Eddie Inouye, who worked with Miller in the 1960s and '70s.  Miller covered World War II, the Palestine War, the Greek Civil War, the Korean War and the Vietnam War.  During World War II, Miller accompanied U.S. Marines when they landed at Guadalcanal. For six weeks, he followed their missions, keeping a diary as he dodged sniper bullets. He also caught malaria. When he returned to the states, newspaper readers got a vivid description of the fighting.  Later in the war, in the spring of 1944, Miller was one of 17 survivors of a U.S. ship sunk by a German submarine in the English Channel. They floated in oily water for six hours before they were rescued.  But his sister, Shirley McKee of Paso Robles, Calif., said her brother was always lucky. At Verdun, when a piece of shrapnel tore into his right arm, he didn't worry; he was left-handed.  Even though he was a civilian, the Army gave him a Purple Heart.  His brushes with danger — and his luck — didn't end in Europe.  In a 1970 newspaper story, Miller said his interview skills saved his life a few months earlier when he and a photographer were captured by North Vietnamese soldiers in Cambodia. They were held for eight hours, all the while telling their captors they were there to report on their story — which they did.  Miller was born in Bound Brook, N.J., on June 10, 1915.  He got his start with UPI the day after he graduated from the University of Nevada in 1938, driving all night from Reno to Fresno, Calif., in his Model A for his first day of work. He retired 45 years later, in 1983.  Miller spent 16 years as bureau chief in Honolulu. When UPI sent him to head its Sydney bureau in 1980, Gordon Sakamoto took over. Miller knew generals, politicians, movers-and-shakers, Sakamoto said.  "My god, there wasn't a place he couldn't go without knowing everybody," Sakamoto said. "Everything he did was at top speed. He was a great newsman. He covered wars, upheavals."  In retirement, Miller liked to travel, fish for trout near a home he kept in Whitmore, Calif., and sip vodka gimlets. He spent part of the year in California and part in Hilo with long-time companion Michi Haga. He also had a home in Sydney.  McKee said her brother's health was fine until last December, when he suffered the first of several strokes. He was seriously ill for the last six weeks, she said.  On Friday, his doctors said he only had days to live. In a tragic twist, it was also the same day that the Big Island Press Club handed out the journalism scholarship that bears Miller's name, something the organization has done for 30 years.  Miller is survived by Michi Haga, who married Miller last Tuesday after a courtship that lasted 54 years.  "In the morning I went to ask him what do you want for breakfast," she said. "He said, 'I want to tell you something.' He said, 'I love you.' I said, 'I love you, too.' And he said, 'I want to get married.' "  Miller is also survived by his sister, Shirley McKee, two nieces and nephews and nine grand-nieces and nephews.  McKee said her brother did not want a funeral service and that the family plans to scatter his ashes in the waters off Hilo.  In lieu of a service, they will gather for a meal in his honor and toast him with a gimlet. .      [Adv July 27, 2004]
