Jake was going into construction and they were very close."  Jake Whetten was born in Honolulu and grew up in Laie, where the 6-foot-7 student played goalie for the Kahuku High School water polo team.  His father, Judd, is director of BYU-Hawaii's physical plant.  Whetten is also survived by mother Susan; siblings Derek, Todd, Jana and Rachel; and grandparents Zada Clark and Clifton Whetten.  [SB Sep. 23, 2004]

Carl Williams wasn't a golfer, and not necessarily because he didn't like the sport. "He didn't have time to do all those things," said Dudley Pratt, longtime friend and Williams' successor as president of Hawaiian Electric Co. "He was one of those guys who was really all business," Pratt added. "He really applied himself totally to the company." Williams, who was at Hawaiian Electric's helm for nine years beginning in 1972, died Dec. 6, 2004 at Straub Clinic & Hospital. He was 89. Williams started at HECO in 1945 as an engineer and worked his way up the company's hierarchy. During his time as vice president of planning in the 1960s, he oversaw the company's first rate increase in nearly 20 years. Born in Georgia, Williams was raised in Miami and attended the University of Florida and Georgia Technical University. After graduating with a bachelor's degree in 1939, Williams joined the Army and later fought in World War II. In 1944, he received the Legion of Merit for his service in Okinawa and Guadalcanal. A year later, Williams was honorably discharged while based in Hawaii as a lieutenant colonel. Shortly after taking a mechanical electrical engineering position at HECO, Williams became a manager. Pratt, who would serve as the company's president for a decade after taking the reins from Williams, remembered his former employer as an administrator who was "dedicated to promoting the betterment" of Hawaiian Electric. Williams developed a mathematical model -- which is still in use -- to determine how to most cost effectively expand HECO's service to other parts of the island, Pratt said. He said the formula would factor in the terrain of a given era, and whether to put in wood or steel poles. Pratt said Williams was also instrumental after Hawaii's statehood in meeting the needs of a growing population. "Statehood ... really put on strain on the financial situation of the company," Pratt said. "It was a completely different situation than the company had ever faced ... (and) he had to follow up with it."  Private services were held for Williams. He is survived by daughter Lesa A. Waldron of Friday Harbor, Wash.; son Edward V. Williams of Atlanta; sister Bess Gilmore of Asherville, N.C.; and seven grandchildren.   [SB Dec. 26, 2004]

Norman Sidney Wilson   -  Norman Sidney Wilson's persistence paid off in February 1994 when he received the money and state approval to implement an automatic external defibrillator program for the Honolulu Fire Department.  His legacy is that since 1994, firefighters have used the equipment to save 75 lives, said Fire Chief Attilio Leonardi.  Wilson, who retired as an assistant fire chief in December 1994 after 37 years with HFD, died Aug. 21 in Honolulu.  In his pursuit to have firefighters trained and equipped to use automatic external defibrillators, Wilson argued in 1991 that advanced cardiac life support service could have saved lives in 39 percent of 74 heart attack cases that year because, as first responders, firefighters could have applied defibrillation within one minute of cardiac arrest. The average response time for ambulances was 8-12 minutes as compared to 3-4 minutes for fire companies, he said.  Convincing the state was not an easy task, recalled Leonardi.  "He had to go in and get the state to change the law because it didn't allow firefighters to do medical work," Leonardi said. "He failed two times. But he learned the process of how to do it and got it done.  "In the early years, we did 4,000 medical responses a year; now we do over 20,000 a year," the chief said.  Wilson also served as president of the Hawai'i Fire Chiefs Association. In retirement, he enjoyed making 'ukuleles and playing golf.  Services have been held and Wilson's ashes were scattered at Makapu'u.  Wilson is survived by his wife, Barbara; sons, Kilauea, Maunakea and Halemaumau; daughters, Haleakala Sakata and Maunaloa Mitravich; mother, Sui Lan; brother, Lymey Wilson; sister, Maluhia Sorgent; and nine grandchildren.

Wilson has staged shows at Paradise Cove and other venues but was best known for his collaboration with fellow kumu O'Brian Eselu, who said the friendship began when they were youths in Halawa housing. The two led the halau Na Wai 'Eha 'O Puna, based in 'Aiea and Wai'anae through the 1980s and '90s, winning multiple awards at the prestigious Merrie Monarch Festival hula competition. In 2000 Eselu renamed the school Ke Kai O Kahiki following Wilson's retirement and move to Maui, where he was founding a new halau with a former student, Robert Aguiar. One of their students, Tracie Farias Lopes, competed twice for the Merrie Monarch's top solo title, Miss Aloha Hula, and won in 1994. "He was the backbone of the group in support," Lopes said. "It was in the '92 year, the year I didn't win, that he gave me the most encouraging words ever. "Whenever we were down, he was often the one to say, 'Hey, come on!' " she said. Eselu and Lopes agreed that Wilson was often called the "second eye" who would catch details Eselu missed. The younger of the two men, Eselu said he learned a great deal from Wilson. "He was my mentor, not only in hula but in my growing up in the world of entertainment," said Eselu, who went on to build a recording career. "He once told me, 'Here's my advice to you: Look, listen, keep your mouth shut.' "So I would look and listen and sometimes ask questions, and he'd say, 'What did I tell you?' " Eselu said with a laugh. He is survived by two brothers, Lani and Adonis Wilson, Aguiar said. Funeral arrangements, by Ballard Family Mortuary, are pending, but plans are for a service at 10:30 a.m. Feb. 13 at Waiola Church, Lahaina.     [Adv 05/02/2004]

Henry Ho Wong  -  Gordon Mau said his friend the philanthropist Henry Ho Wong was extremely generous and intelligent.  Mau also said, "He was very loyal and unyielding."  Wong died Friday Sep. 24, 2004 at his Kaneohe home. He was 91.  Wong was born in Heeia. He graduated with honors from St. Louis School for Boys in 1931.  Days later, Wong started to work for Harold Castle as a stable and office boy at Kaneohe Ranch. He eventually became ranch manager and vice president of the company.  Meanwhile, Wong attended the University of Hawaii in 1954 as a student in the advanced management program held by the Harvard University Graduate School of Business Administration.  For 50 years he negotiated leases and worked with commercial and residential developers. He also was co-executor of Castle's estate.  Wong was also involved in many organizations. He was a former chairman of the Honolulu Police Commission, president of the Kaneohe Rotary Club and member of various organizations that include the Windward Chamber of Commerce, Kailua Lions Club and the Chinese Chamber of Commerce.  Wong -- of Hawaiian, Scottish and Chinese descent -- was the first person of Asian ancestry to become a member of the Mid-Pacific Country Club.  He was also named Saint Louis School's Outstanding Alumnus of the Year 2000  "His reputation in the school is one of a tremendous supporter and devoted alumni who also had a place in his heart for Saint Louis and how it was progressing and improving," said the Rev. Allen DeLong, headmaster of Saint Louis School. "He was considered very close to us."  He made large contributions to many organizations, Roman Catholic churches and schools in the state.  Some include a $2 million donation to the Community Foundation of Hawaii that created the Henry H. Wong Fund for the benefit of St. Francis School, Saint Louis School, St. Anthony's Church and St. Ann's Church.  Wong also donated two acres of property worth an estimated $650,000 to Castle Memorial Hospital.  In 1991 he created the Henry H. Wong Foundation to benefit women and children in need of basic services.  Wong is survived by wife Colene; sons Henry, Gordon and Ross; daughters Lucy Ann Awai and Veronica Davis; 18 grandchildren; 56 great-grandchildren; and 11 great-great-grandchildren.  A service will be held Saturday at St. John Vianney Church, 920 Keolu Drive, Kailua.

A. James "Jim" Wriston III, vice president/director of real estate for Ka'anapali Development Corp., died Sunday at Maui Memorial Medical Center after suffering a brain aneurysm, according to company officials. He was 48.  A funeral is planned for 2 p.m. Friday at Thurston Chapel on the Punahou School campus.  Wriston, son of prominent Honolulu attorney A. James Wriston Jr., was involved in various Ka'anapali Development Corp. projects, such as the community-based, master-planned Ka'anapali 2020 and the Waine'e affordable housing project. He also was founder and co-owner of Kahua Nurseries on O'ahu and Hawaiian Earth Products, the state's largest compost producer, which sold products under the Menehune Magic brand.  Wriston was born Sept. 4, 1955, in Honolulu. He graduated from Punahou School in 1973 and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in agriculture from the University of Hawai'i at Hilo.  He began his career with Ka'anapali Development Corp.'s parent company, Amfac Inc., in 1988, serving as a field engineer for O'ahu Sugar. He was promoted to manager of land administration, and in 1995 moved to Kaua'i to become the director of plantation sugar administration for Amfac Sugar Kaua'i. He returned to O'ahu Sugar in 1997 and moved to Maui in June 2000 to assume his post with Ka'anapali Development Corp. Months before, the company, after admitting it erred in previous West Maui developments, had convened a planning conference and enlisted about 100 community volunteers to help devise the Ka'anapali 2020 Project Development Area Plan. The plan includes 2,810 housing units, a golf course, school, hospital and other facilities on 1,154 acres of former canefields above the resort.  One of those volunteers, Buck Buchanan of Lahaina, said yesterday that Wriston came on board and made sure the public stayed involved in the process. "He was an honest-to-god, Hawaiian-born, polite guy who listened to everybody," Buchanan said. "He worked at getting the input from the people who were volunteering like myself and made sure people were alerted to the meetings." In addition to development projects, Wriston recently was spearheading community discussions on the company's efforts to preserve coffee cultivation in West Maui and to develop a plan for demolition of the Pioneer Mill without destroying the towering smokestack that has become a Lahaina landmark.  "He gave heart and soul, striving to ensure that our projects blended with the community's wishes," said Ka'anapali Development Corp. Executive Vice President Stephen Lovelette in a statement.  Wriston also was involved in numerous community groups such as the West Maui Taxpayers Association, the LahainaTown Action Committee, the Rotary Club of Lahaina, the Lahaina Restoration Foundation, the Maui Chamber of Commerce, the Maui Hotel Association and the Maui Historical Society. He was president of the Ka'anapali Golf Estates Community Association.  His father said that he loved the outdoors and that deep-sea fishing was his passion.  In addition to his father, Wriston is survived by his mother, Helen; his fiancée, Sandra Seton; two sons, James IV and Christopher, both of Eugene, Ore., a sister, Jaimee Wriston Colbert of Binghamton, N.Y.; and brothers, John David of Mandeville, La., and Jeffrey of Vancouver, Wash. .   [Adv July 28, 2004]
