Davies, Geoffrey Clive One of the captains of business during Hawai'i's plantation era, Geoffrey Clive Davies, has died.  For nearly four decades, Davies was an executive and longtime chairman of Theo H. Davies & Co., one of the Big Five companies that dominated Hawai'i's economy when sugarcane was king.  Davies was 89. He died in England, which was home, though he spent many years in Hawai'i.  The business leader was a grandson of Theophilus Harris Davies, who left England in 1856 and expanded a Hawai'i trading firm he acquired in 1868 that led to the establishment of Theo H. Davies & Co. in 1884.  Geoffrey Clive Davies joined the family firm in 1946 and rose to oversee agricultural, insurance, steamship and travel operations. He retired in 1961 as vice president but remained a director, and became chairman in 1966. As chairman, Davies led a fight against a surprise takeover of the firm by Dillingham Corp. in 1967, and several years later helped facilitate the firm's sale to Hong Kong-based Jardine Matheson.  Campbell Estate trustee David Heenan, who in the early 1980s joined Theo H. Davies & Co. as chief executive officer shortly after Davies left the company, said he stayed in close touch with the longtime chairman.  "He never lacked an opinion about where we were headed," Heenan said. "He was incredibly gracious to me and really anybody who worked for Theo Davies Group. He always had time for us.  "He absolutely loved Hawai'i," Heenan said. "He had a real fondness for the Big Island in particular."  Davies was born in Hampshire, England, and served in the British Navy. During the outbreak of World War II, he was captured in Japan and interned for eight months before being repatriated in an exchange.  Davies first moved to Hawai'i briefly in 1932, then returned in 1946. He served as British Consul for Hawai'i from 1950-56, and was appointed to the Order of the British Empire.  Married to wife, Joan, for 63 years, Davies was father of Susan, Cynthia, Alison and Peter and was a grandfather and great-grandfather. Funeral services will be at St. Mary's Church in Harkstead in the eastern England borough of Ipswich on June 27. No flowers, please. Funeral service provider Farthing Singleton & Hastings can be reached at 01-473-272-711. [Adv, June 25, 2005]

Davis, Bertell "Bert" D.  Archaeologist Bertell "Bert" D. Davis, 62, whose fieldwork contributed significantly to knowledge and preservation of Hawaiian archaeological sites, died Jan. 16, 2005.  He worked on many projects in Vietnam and Cambodia as well as in Hawaii, where he spent about 20 years on the archaeology of Barbers Point. He earned a doctorate in 1990 at the University of Hawaii-Manoa with a dissertation on his Barbers Point research. "He was a real hard case for doing extremely detailed professional work in the contract archaeological field -- often to the exasperation of employers, because he would insist that further work would have to be done and often run them over budget," said Bion Griffin, interim associate dean of the UH anthropology department. Davis came to Hawaii around 1965 in the Army, Griffin said. He applied to go to Vietnam, and the Army wouldn't send him so he went as soon as he was discharged. Davis began doing archaeology in Hawaii in the early 1970s with various projects at Barbers Point, and is best known for his work there, said Griffin, who was chair of Davis' doctoral dissertation. Davis taught archaeology field schools for UH and participated in many projects for the university, Bishop Museum, Archaeological Research Center Hawaii and International Archaeological Research Institute, Inc. He worked for seven or eight years as a civilian archaeologist on missions for the Army Central Identification Lab, Griffin said. In the last three years, he worked on an archaeological site survey along the Mekong River in Cambodia with Griffin and Mike Dega, senior archaeologist at Scientific Consultants Services. "He saw that as sort of a legacy," Griffin said. "It was a return to his first love, Southeast Asian archaeology." He ran field trips in archaeologically unknown areas along the Mekong and "did a great job" training Khmer Cambodian archaeology students, Dega said. "The students miss him." Dega said Davis worked on more than 300 archaeology projects. "He was a real technician in the field. He was one of the most dedicated archaeologists I ever met and worked with." "Bert was meticulous in his field notes and his fieldwork," said Earl "Buddy" Neller, of Ellensburg, Wash., formerly with the state Historic Preservation Office and Office of Hawaiian Affairs. "Because of his strong desire to do good work and a commitment to preserve as much of the archaeological record as possible, he worked long hours." Neller said he often found Davis working alone on weekends, digging in the kiawe forest jungle of Barbers Point.  Because of his extensive excavations, Neller said, "We have a much better idea of what to expect archaeologically at such sites and about the range of variability in Hawaiian religious worship. This is one of Bert's greatest contributions." Griffin said Davis encouraged Cambodia to develop a national register of archaeological sites. "He was extremely committed to helping the Khmer Cambodian people rebuild their archaeological programs and professional skills following catastrophes of three decades of war." Davis' survivors include his wife, Kwan Jai of Thailand, and son Eric of Honolulu. Vietnamese Buddhist services were held Wednesday at Oahu Cemetery Chapel by Ultimate Cremation Services of Hawaii.

Decker, Robert "Bob" Renowned volcano scientist Robert "Bob" Decker died of cancer June 11 at his home in Mariposa, Calif. He was 78.  Decker studied volcanoes in Indonesia, Iceland, Central and South America and the United States, and served as scientist-in-charge of the U.S. Geological Survey's Hawaiian Volcano Observatory from 1979 to 1984.  Those who knew him said he was most proud of creating the Center for the Study of Active Volcanoes at the University of Hawai'i-Hilo, a cooperative effort between the university and the observatory. The center was established in 1989 to provide training and information on volcanic and natural hazards that occur in Hawai'i and elsewhere. Its international training course in volcano hazards monitoring has instructed nearly 100 scientists from 23 nations in techniques of monitoring active volcanoes and forecasting eruptions.  "Bob Decker was a great scientist, but in addition, he always emphasized the importance of public education, and of communication between volcanologists and government," said Darcy Bevens, the center's educational specialist.  She said his enthusiasm was contagious, that he loved teaching and was able to explain "complicated scientific ideas in simple language, both in the field and classroom."  While at the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, Decker started writing the weekly "Volcano Watch" column in response to daily inquires about the work being done at the facility. The column continues today, written by different staff members.  With his wife, Barbara, Decker also wrote travel and science books, including the textbook "Volcanoes" and the 2001 book "Volcanoes in America's National Parks."  In that book, the Deckers, who have a house at Kawaihae, described their lifelong passion for volcanoes: "Volcanoes assail the senses. They are beautiful in repose and awesome in eruption; they hiss and roar; they smell of brimstone. Their heat warms, their fires consume; they are the homes of gods and goddesses."  From 1975 to 1979, he served as the president of the International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth's Interior, and was credited with introducing innovative technologies, such as using lasers to measure the change in distance across Moku'aweoweo caldera on Mauna Loa.  Jim Kauahikaua, current scientist-in-charge at Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, said that because of Decker's early work, scientists have a record of the caldera's widening before the last two eruptions in 1975 and 1984. He said the data are crucial to forecasting Mauna Loa's eruptions.  Longtime observatory staff  like to tell the story of a going-away party held for Decker the evening of March 24, 1984, before he moved to California. The staff had recognized the signs of an imminent Mauna Loa eruption in 1983 and joked about it in a skit performed at the party. Three hours later, early on the morning of March 25, the volcano erupted, and when contacted at home, Decker had to be convinced it wasn't a joke.  Decker was born March 11, 1927. No services are planned. Donations may be sent to the Robert Decker Memorial Scholarship at the Center for the Study of Active Volcanoes, UH-Hilo, 200 W. Kawili St., Hilo, HI 96720.   [Adv, June 25, 2005]

Denny, Martin With cheers of "hana hou" filling the Hawai'i Theatre after he performed "Quiet Village" with the group Don Tiki in 2003, Martin Denny took two standing ovations in his last major performance. Although weakened by age and failing health, he had lived to enjoy the international resurgence of exotica and was thrilled with the endorsement of his music by baby boomers.  "I'm happy the music's back, because I'm frankly tired of hearing the same old thing," Denny said in a 2003 interview with The Advertiser. "Rap music. High-voltage rock 'n' roll. What will kids today remember 20 years from now? There's hardly anything romantic or melodic. I think a whole lot of good music has been lost."  The 93-year-old composer and keyboardist died Wednesday, Feb. 23, 2005 night at his Hawai'i Kai apartment; he had a weak heart, arthritis and diabetes.  The local icon was best known for developing and defining his own sound, "exotica," combining bird calls, jungle chimes, croaking frogs and Asian, Latin and Pacific riffs with jazz and pop music.  In his heyday, Denny's O'ahu-based band included Augie Col—n, who was the originator of the bird calls, and Arthur Lyman, a vibraphone player who also became an exponent of "exotic" music worldwide. Both are also gone.  "He is now playing exotica music with Augie and Arthur in heaven," said Lloyd Kandell, a Honolulu musician who has been carrying on the exotica tradition with Denny's blessing through the act called Don Tiki.  "He went very peacefully, graciously," said his daughter, Christina, who was his caregiver. "Dad had multiple organ failure, and he rallied up and down in recent weeks. But he was lucid till the end, happy and comfortable. I kissed his masterful hands — and said goodbye."  Denny relied on a wheelchair to tool around to infrequent gigs in recent years. His death saddened the music community.  "Marty was one of the classiest guys in the business," said Don Ho, who shared a Waikiki stage with Denny in the early 1960s. "He would play, then I would play, and he was encouraging me, so happy to see a new kid on the block being successful," said Ho. "There was not a bone of envy in his body, not an ounce of jealousy. He has been gracious all these years; he had million-sellers and he was still supportive. We lost a good guy."  "Marty created such beautiful exotic music for the world to enjoy," said Kandell. "But he also was an inspirational example of how to live life. He was giving; he last performed at a fund-raiser (for victims of the Indian Ocean tsunami) at La Pietra just two weeks ago."  "He was my buddy; we were the best of friends," said Del Courtney, a veteran musician and bandleader who'd get together with Denny for lunch on Wednesdays, health willing. "I met him 60 years ago in San Francisco; he was a name then and still is. He'll be missed by everybody."  Denny turned bird calls, vibes and piano into a signature sound, epitomized by his instrumental hit, "Quiet Village." At the height of his career, three or four albums held places simultaneously on the Billboard, Cashbox, and Variety best-seller lists.  Over the course of a career that began in the late 1950s, he released more than 40 albums and helped launch careers for his sidemen, including Lyman, Col—n and Julius Wechter (vibes) of the Baja Marimba Band. His long-playing vinyl discs suggested a mythic, magical allure, with titles such as "Exotica," "Primitiva," "Afro-Desia," "Forbidden Island," and "Hypnotique."  His sound fused American jazz with Latin American, Asian and South Pacific influences, relying on gongs, chimes and other unconventional instruments. Denny once said his music was inspired by the romantic setting of James Michener's novel, "South Pacific." In turn, Michener once said of Denny's sound: "It uses instruments and rhythms not usually found in popular music. I like it because it reminds me of places I've been, and sounds I've loved."  "Quiet Village," originally included on Denny's first album, "Exotica," has resurfaced in the past decade to appeal to a new generation of music fans, who label the tropical-flavored tune "lounge music." His music received a booster shot when Toshiba-EMI in Japan and Capitol Records in the United States issued compilations of his "exotica" in the '90s.  His album covers always boasted alluring female models — all from Hollywood, not Hawai'i — and his recordings encompassed a variety of motifs, including Broadway and film hits.  The bird calls and frog sounds of "Quiet Village" were inspired by his Hawaiian environment, Denny said — and he didn't know he was creating a hit. "The song was purely accidental," he said. "I was opening at the Shell Bar at the old Hawaiian Village (now the Hilton Hawaiian Village), and we played the song and inserted bird calls.  "There was a pond of water near the band, and whenever we played the selection, bufos were croaking, 'Ribbet, ribbet, ribbet.' When I stopped playing, they stopped croaking. It was a coincidence. When we started up again, adding the bird calls, the croaking would resume. Cracked me up."  When he recorded "Quiet Village," he incorporated bird calls by Col—n and imitated the frog sound by rubbing a coin on a guiro, a grooved cylinder. The track first appeared on the "Exotica" album on Liberty Records, and when it caught on, Denny's second album was dubbed "Quiet Village." Both albums made the Billboard charts in 1959; a single, "Quiet Village" peaked at No. 4.  A favorite on the Waikiki strip in the 1950s and '60s, Denny first played the old Shell Bar at the Kaiser Hawaiian Village Hotel (now the Hilton), then moved to clubs such as Don the Beachcomber's, which later became Duke Kahanamoku's, in the International Market Place. Over the years, he performed at the Kahala Hilton and the Hawaiian Regent, as well as at Canlis' Restaurant, and the Blue Dolphin — nightspots that no longer exist.  In 1959, Billboard, the music industry bible, named his band "most promising group of the year," and he was nominated for "pianist of the year" alongside such giants as George Shearing and Ahmad Jamal.  In 1990, the Hawai'i Academy of Recording Arts honored Denny with a Na Hoku Hanohano Lifetime Achievement Award.  Denny was born April 5, 1911, in New York City. Trained in classical music, he first studied piano at age 10 and was a prodigy of Lester Spitz and Eleanor Gorn. As a youth, he toured South America with a six-piece band and frequent visits left an impression — the Latin elements that would infiltrate his sound.  He served in the Air Force during World War II and did tours of duty in Germany and France, then studied music and composition at the Los Angeles Conservatory of Music.  He was a member of ASCAP, the Hawaiian Professional Song Writers Society, and the Musicians Association of Hawaii, Local 677.  His wife, June, died in 2001. He is survived by his daughter, Christina.  Services are set for March 12 at the Elks Club. Details are pending. [Adv, Mar 4, 2005]
