Alethea, David a professor of philosophy and chairman of the Humanities Division at the University of Hawai'i-West O'ahu, died Sunday, July 24, 2005 of cancer. He was 67. Alethea, who earned the 2003 UH Regents' Medal for Excellence in Teaching, had been at West O'ahu since 1979. "Alethea's students call him challenging, brilliant and passionate," said the official notification of the award. "He is a true philosopher who exemplifies the subject in which he teaches." In 1997 Alethea was named one of the national course winners by the Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences, an international nonprofit organization dedicated to research, teaching and public service. In 1986 and 1987 he was awarded the President's Educational Improvement Fund Grant. Professors at the closely knit West O'ahu school called him a caring and gentle professor, popular with students and colleagues. "We had the Humanities Bash every year and we'd always put on a play and the idea was that professors would make fun of themselves, which students always loved," said Hank Chapin, a retired professor of English literature from West O'ahu. "David's greatest role was when he played Socrates. We stood him up on a table and his head was in this kind of skylight. It was like the philosopher up there in the heavens. He was just a great guy." Chapin said Alethea "lived the life of a philosopher. ... He even had a motto: 'Question your own beliefs.' " Alethea was born March 18, 1938, in Chicago. He earned his undergraduate degree at the University of Wisconsin and his master's and doctorate of philosophy at Columbia University in New York. He studied in Paris under a Fulbright grant from 1964-66, and continued those studies through 1968. When their first child was born in 1982, he and his wife, Barbara, tried to combine their former names to create a hyphenated name for themselves and their child, but they decided their two names — Funt and Aymond — had no pleasing combinations. So they chose a completely new name for the whole family — Alethea — from the Greek word for truth. Their eldest child, Sarah Wayan, was named for the first-born child in Balinese tradition — Wayan — as the couple had spent time on the Indonesian island and been impressed by its culture. "He had a cosmopolitanism that was really extraordinary," said another colleague, history professor Daniel Boylan, who called Alethea a man who was learned, gentle, intellectual and "out of the box" in many ways. "My jaw always dropped," Boylan said. "He knew art. He knew Eastern and Western philosophy. He was the kind of guy who you always knew was going to be reasonable. "I remember once a student coming into my office, a pretty well-educated young man, saying, 'That guy's brilliant, that guy's brilliant.' " Alethea is survived by his wife, Barbara; daughter, Sarah; son, Zachary; sister, Geraldine Malter of New York City; and nieces and nephews. Services and a celebration of his life are from 4 to 6:30 p.m. Aug. 7 at 41-976 Laumilo St. in Waimanalo. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to "Friends of David Alethea Fund" in care of the same address. [Adv, July 29, 2005]

Allen, Robert C. "Bob" a leader in nearly every aspect of tourism in Hawai'i, including directing the Hawaii Visitors Bureau in the 1960s, died May 25, 2005. He was 92.  Allen was born in October 1912, in Topeka, Kan., and was raised in Southern California. Soon after graduating from the Southwestern University School of Business Administration in Los Angeles, Allen began a life filled with adventure and achievements.  With jobs hard to come by during the Depression, Allen left the country to work in mines in the Philippines. He worked with mountain tribes in Luzon and, with his accounting background, became a chief accountant with a mine company.  Soon after the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, Allen, then a Navy reservist, was called to duty and sent to Corregidor. Within months, the Japanese overran the Philippines and Allen was taken prisoner.  For three years, Allen was held captive in two prison camps where he was subjected to starvation and abuse. But his stay in the camps did have a bright side because he met his future wife, Billie, while both were imprisoned at Santo Tomas in Manila.  The couple vowed to get married if they survived the prison camps. Their wish was granted in February 1945 when paratroopers liberated the prisoners. On June 5, 1945, the two were married.  The Allens moved to Hawai'i soon after the war and Bob Allen began his long career in the visitor industry. Allen worked with the biggest names and companies in the industry, including Henry J. Kaiser and hotelier Roy Kelley.  Allen served as president of Gray Line Hawaii, Avis U-Drive, Shoreline Cruises, Travel Development Co., and Waikiki Airline Terminal. He also served as a director with Gray Line Sightseeing Companies of America and South Pacific Airways.  From 1964 to 1968, Allen was the executive vice president and managing director of what was then called the Hawaii Visitors Bureau. During his tenure, Allen helped to build the local tourism industry to what it is today.  After leaving the bureau, Allen served as a consultant to many Southeast Asian countries to set up their own versions of the HVB.  "The Hawaii Visitors Bureau was kind of the model for the whole general area and he took what knowledge he had gained from here and helped them start theirs along a similar line, tailored of course to each country," Billie Allen said.  Ironically, she said, because of his familiarity with the Philippines, her husband played a key role in developing tourism there.  William Quinn, Hawai'i's first governor, worked closely with Bob Allen to develop what would become the state's biggest industry. Through his wife, Nancy, the former governor said he appreciated the work that Allen did.  "He wanted to encourage (Allen) because he thought he was a great guy," Nancy Quinn said. "They helped one another. He was very proud of Bob Allen and thought he did a fine job."  Allen also was a charter member of the Pacific Area Travel Association, president of the Hawaii Polo Club, and a Rotarian for more than 35 years.  Allen is survived by wife, Helene "Billie"; daughters, Linda and Sherry; and two grandchildren. Private services have been held. [Adv, June 4, 2005]
Allen, Robert C. engaged in every facet of Hawaii's tourism industry for more than 35 years, died May 25, 2005 in the Center for the Aging at Tripler Army Medical Center. The 92-year-old Kaneohe resident, commonly referred to as "Bob," was the president and director of various organizations including the Hawaii Visitors Bureau, Grayline Hawaii and the Hotel Operating Co. He served as chairman of numerous tourism committees and co-founded the Hawaii Skal Club, which consisted of business leaders in the field. Allen pioneered Hawaii's marketing and sales program by informing travel agents on the mainland and in Southeast Asia about the islands' customs and attributes. He worked with prominent individuals such as premier industrialist Henry J. Kaiser and hotel guru Roy Kelley to incorporate the world's largest catamaran into the Pearl Harbor sightseeing tour. His efforts created marketing conditions that opened the door for future travel in both directions. The number of Hawaii travel agents grew from a few hundred directly after the war to more than 25,000 by 1990. Allen's book, "Creating Hawaii Tourism," published in 2004, described the events and people that contributed to the industry's dramatic growth and development. "He was greatly respected within the tourism industry and was often referred to as 'Mr. Tourism,'" said Ernie Albrecht, former Skal Club president and Pan American Airways manager. "I have a tremendous respect for his ability and what he was trying to do for the state." Albrecht, who knew Allen for about 50 years and referred to him as a "brother," often ate lunch with him or watched him play polo. Allen was a former Hawaii Polo Club president and frequently played at local parks. Prior to Allen's involvement with tourism and polo, he attended Southwestern University School of Business Administration, Los Angeles, and became the chief accountant for a mining company in the Philippines. While in the Philippines, he served in the U.S. Navy Reserve and was captured by the Japanese during World War II. Allen spent the next three years as a prisoner of war in two Japanese camps where he met his future wife, Helene, who is often referred to as "Billie." The couple would have celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary this Sunday. "He was a loving husband, caring father and wonderful grandfather," Helene Allen said. Robert Allen is also survived by daughters Linda and Sherry, and two grandchildren. A private funeral service will be held. [SB, June 3, 2005]

Annon, Jack Ten years ago, Jack Annon's heart stopped. He was on life support for two weeks, and his wife was preparing his funeral. Then the Hawaii clinical psychologist whose work has garnered international recognition woke up, turned to his wife and said, "What's going on, honey?" The decade since, said Annon's wife, "has been God's extra time." Annon, who wrote two books, dozens of scholarly papers and was regularly called on to testify in Honolulu criminal court cases, died Christmas Eve at Kaiser Permanente's Moanalua Medical Center after a long battle with liver cancer. He was 76. "He always worked with people, helping others," said Arvillie Ann Annon, who married the psychologist in 1962. "He never retired. It was his love, his passion." Jack Annon was born in Chicago in 1929 and joined the Marines in his 20s. He was stationed in the islands and decided to stay after getting out of the military to attend school. In 1963 he got his bachelor's degree from the University of Hawaii and went on to receive his master's and doctorate in clinical psychology. During his years in private practice, Annon was named to serve on the editorial boards of several psychology journals. He presented more than 500 scholarly papers at conferences and was affiliated with the University of Hawaii and Argosy University. In 1998, Annon was the first expert in Hawaii to testify before jurors on the memory of eyewitnesses. The so-called "Mililani rapist" was later convicted, but Annon's testimony brought new light to issues involving police lineups and witness accounts. Two years ago the American College of Forensic Examiners honored Annon with a lifetime achievement award. Annon also received commendations form the state, Honolulu Police Department and Hawaii Psychological Association. Outside of work, Annon enjoyed performing in community theater, musicals and modern dance productions. For a time in the '70s, his wife said, Annon was active in martial arts. The couple also enjoyed sailing together. Besides his wife, Annon is survived by sons Jeffrey Nalanieha, Jason Kaipokea and Tyron Makua; daughter Marselene Uanoe; brother Richard Vincent; and sister Patricia Keene.
