Dean Yamashiro - Those who knew him best described First Deputy Public Defender Dean Yamashiro yesterday as competent, caring and above all compassionate. Yamashiro, who worked for the state Office of the Public Defender for more than 20 years, collapsed from an apparent heart attack while jogging in Nu'uanu Saturday, May 15, 2004, not far from his Liliha home, and could not be revived. He was 52. State Public Defender John Tonaki said Yamashiro had high blood pressure problems but was a dedicated runner and marathon finisher who loved his job, the people he worked with and the strangers he worked for. A former police detective, Yamashiro joined the Public Defender's office in June 1983. "He just loved helping people and he had a deep caring for the underprivileged in our community," Tonaki said. "His office was in the middle of our complex and there was always a constant stream of people staff seeking answers, clients needing help, even lawyers from the outside with questions." Tonaki said that Yamashiro, who had a long-time girlfriend but was not married, had no children of his own, but had a special place in his heart for the children of the deputy public defenders. The walls in Yamashiro's office are lined with five bulletin boards that tell of the journeys made by coworkers' children, many of whom can be traced from birth to preschool and ultimately to high school graduation. "He knew everybody's name and their kids' names as well," said Circuit Judge Richard Pollack, who was appointed director of the Public Defender's office in 1987. Yamashiro was appointed first deputy a short while later. Yamashiro kept a ready supply of candy and used his own money to buy books for the children of deputies who often put in long hours preparing for a trial while "Uncle Dean" looked after the kids, Pollack said "He was a remarkable person, just a remarkable person," he said. He said Yamashiro was unique in that he was "remarkably competent at what he did and at the same time, was one of the most thoughtful people I have ever known." When Yamashiro learned the mother of one of the staff members was suffering from Alzheimer's disease, he bought a book for her on how to cope with the problem. He never forgot a birthday, kept a supply of stand-by gifts for those who did and always seemed to know the right size and color, Pollack said. "His importance to the Public Defender's office cannot be overstated. He was the glue that everyone stuck to to make the office work," Pollack said. Deputy Public Defender Susan Arnett, who worked with Yamashiro for more than 20 years, described him as "the heart and soul of our office," someone whose compassion knew no bounds. "The standing line about Dean at the office was, 'For someone who has no children, he sure has a lot of children,' " Arnett said. Even those who stood on the opposite side of the courtroom were stunned and saddened by his death. City Prosecutor Peter Carlisle remembered Yamashiro as always polite, someone who spoke with a calm and reasoned voice in an environment not always conducive of those traits. Deputy Prosecutor Rom Trader said he didn't always agree with Yamashiro, "but when he said something, you would sit up and pay attention "He had this really nice, quiet, humble way about him," Trader said. Yamashiro graduated from McKinley High School and the University of Hawai'i's William S. Richardson School of Law. Prior to going to law school, Yamashiro worked for the Honolulu Police Department where he advanced to the rank of detective. [Adv May 18, 2004]

Yamashita, whose 16 years of service on the state school board included duties as the state's chief negotiator with the Department of Education's teachers and unionized administrators, died in Las Vegas, where he made his home upon retirement. Gov. John A. Burns appointed Yamashita to the state Board of Education in 1965. At the time, Yamashita was serving his second term on the Big Island School Advisory Council. In 1966, Yamashita ran for office and won a Big Island seat on the state's first elected Board of Education. The board elected him chairman in 1972 and he served in that capacity until 1974. He served as president of the National School Board Association in 1979-80. In 1980, President Carter appointed him to the newly created Intergovernmental Advisory Council on Education, a 20-member task force that recommended national initiatives in schooling. Yamashita, who was born in 1924 in 'Ola'a, Hawai'i, was associated with the sugar industry for many years. As industrial relations officer at O'ahu Sugar Co., he served as community liaison and was in charge of the workplace safety program. When he retired in 1990, he moved from Honolulu to Las Vegas at the recommendation of doctors who called for a hot and dry climate to accommodate his wife's health.

Joan Yoder - Eleven years ago, Joan Yoder was given two months to live. The Kailua resident had been diagnosed with auto-immune hepatitis in 1987, and six years of battling the disease had left her liver nearly destroyed. Yoder's only chance of survival was a liver transplant at a time when no hospitals in the islands were certified to perform the operation. But just when it seemed there was no reason for hope, three doctors at St. Francis Medical Center were given the go-ahead to do the risky procedure. The operation in May 1993 made Yoder the first person to undergo a liver transplant in Hawaii. It also gave her time enough to see her daughter married and her three grandchildren born. Yoder, who helped found the Transplant Association of Hawaii, died Oct. 1, 2004 of lung cancer. She was 71. "She was a lady who loved life," said Yoder's husband, Robert. "Although she had to battle a lot of years to survive, she never complained." Yoder was born in Pennsylvania and worked much of her life taking care of her husband and two children. The family moved to the islands in 1971. After her liver transplant, Yoder decided to help start an association for transplant candidates, recipients and their families. The nonprofit -- which also advocates organ donorship -- started out with 12 members in 1995. Its membership now stands at more than 400 Hawaii residents. "There was no support group for transplant recipients when she had her surgery," Robert Yoder said. "A year or two after that (her surgery) ... she said, 'Let's do something for the other people who are waiting.'" Yoder is survived by her husband; son Robert Dean, daughter Jo Ann Moser; three grandchildren; sister Donna Reber; and brother William Fick. Services are set for 10 a.m. Thursday at Hawaiian Memorial Park Mortuary. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Yoder's name to the Organ Donor Center of Hawaii. [SB Oct. 11, 2004]
