SUMIKO SAKAMOTO Sumiko Sakamoto, 89, passed away peacefully on April 1, 2016 in Clovis, California. She was born on the Big Island on January 13, 1927. Sumiko was a long-time resident of Laupahoehoe before moving to California a few years after the loss of her husband Kazuo in 1988, to be closer to her family. Sumiko was a strong-willed, hard-working, and courageous woman. As a mother, she stressed the importance of a good education to her children. Not having completed high school due to her family's limited resources, it was her dream come true to see each of her children graduate from college and be successful in their chosen professions. Her life truly revolved around her grandchildren, as they brought so much joy into her life and made her proud with all they have accomplished. One of her biggest joys was being the Matron of Honor at her granddaughter's wedding. She beamed with joy as she walked down the aisle on the arm of her grandson-in-law. Sumiko is survived by sons Warren (Raynette) and Nelson; daughters Sharon (Brad) Kimura, and Lee Ann (Mark) Cunningham. She was a loving "Granny" to Christopher Sakamoto, Krista (Gabriel) Kimura Calderon, Kelsey Kimura, and Lauren and Maxwell Cunningham. She is also survived by her three sisters: Ruth Kino, Jean Fukuki, and Bernice Koga. At Sumiko's request, a private service was held, with future plans to return to Hawaii.

PAUL MICHEL "MICKEY" THIELEN July 30, 1931 April 12, 2016 left us after living a full life. He was first and foremost a family man. A wonderful husband to his wife, Cynthia, and an amazing father to his children. His grandchildren knew their "Pomper" as a mischievous, reliable and caring figure. Mickey believed his greatest legacy was his family, especially his four children. In them he instilled an irreverent sense of humor to carry them through life's ups and downs, a strong work ethic, entrepreneurial spirit, and a responsibility to care for others. He took great joy in Cynthia's legislative accomplishments, proudly driving an SUV holding scores of yard signs that he delivered. Mickey was a well-known contractor, serious about the quality of his work, but humorously named his company "Mouse Builders." He made a significant mark on Honolulu, particularly in the Chinatown-Downtown area. He is best known for the national Renaissance Award-winning restoration of the Stagenwald Building; construction and operation of Mauna Kea Marketplace. He was a businessman-mentor, who provided an environment where people took pride in their work and were encouraged to grow their careers. Mickey graduated from Claremont Men's College (now Claremont-McKenna), Senior Class President, 1953; was a 40-year member of the Lanikai "Park Priques" volleyball hui; and was always ready to take on the establishment, such as fighting the State to keep his restaurant name "The Bank," which he opened in the old Bishop Street Territorial Savings Bank. The most inspirational aspects of Mickey's life are not the structures he built or the businesses he started. They are the people he inspired, the example he set, and the way he challenged everyone to be the best they could be. He is survived by his wife, Cynthia, four children, Dave, Peter Laura and Greg, 10 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. Pictures and testiments to Mickeys life can be found at http://www.mickeythielen.com/ In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in memory of Mickey Thielen to the Windward YMCA Endowment Fund. A celebration of Life will be held Sunday, May 22, 2016 at MidPacific Country Club, 11:00-2:30, with remarks from 11:30-12:00.
