Nuuanu Memorial Park & Mortuary, LLC

DONALD B.C. “DOMINIC” CHAN

Donald, 80, was born in Honolulu to Mew Chan Tong Chan and Lovett Chan, Sept. 28. 1929. He grew up in Kona next to the City of Refuge and attended Honaunau Elementary School. Lived as a “farm boy” taking care of chickens and goats. Suffered from asthma, which may have been the impetus for his interest in healing. He helped many with massage and Hawaiian tea.
He graduated from Iolani High School, and attended New York Trade School and Louisiana State for technical training in piano tuning and repair. While in New Orleans, he had a part in the movie, “Panic in the Streets.”
He was a gifted musician-played piano and several other instruments, mostly self-taught. He enjoyed jazz and playing jam sessions with friends at home on Saturday afternoons. Last year, he recorded a CD playing and singing some of his favorite songs, produced by Kealoha & Michael Wong.
He retired at age 50 from his piano and organ store-Fun Music. Ran the Honolulu Marathon in ’80 & ’81. Did exciting things like white water rafting, mountain rappelling, diving in a shark cage, scuba, and skiing — always with family members.
He was a world traveler — two highlights were climbing the Great Wall in China and being in the inner Great Pyramid alone early one morning in Egypt.
Golf was something he enjoyed with many good buddies. Got a hole-in-one in 1997. He became competent in plumbing and carpentry taking care of his apartments. One of his many talents was art —- bronze sculpture. His many bronze pieces are a beautiful legacy. He was a great cook and set the standard for a whole family of good cooks.
He will be greatly missed by his loving and extended “family.” Lots of cousins, nieces, nephews and others he touched in caring ways through the years. Our thanks to cousin Lloyd “Spider” Wong, whom he called his “special angel.”
Don is survived by his loving wife Madolon, sons Bennett (Theresa) and Tyler Chan, daughters Bonnie and Merri (Steve) Gratz-Arce, stepdaughters Sue Kaiser, Pennie (Bob) McCarten and Lonnie (Ron) Bishop, sister Dorothea Li, half-brothers Peter “Quinn” (Connie) Chan, Bow Sum (Diane) Cheng, and William Cheng, half-sister Pauline Chan, grandchildren Jolie Gratz, Kelli Gratz, Cameron Chan, Raymond Kim and Christine Kim, M.D., step-grandchildren Brigitt Franklin, David McKee, Jasen McKee, D’Lane Korbus, Ken Kaiser, Raena Marshall, Tiare Weiss, and fourteen step-great grandchildren.

CORY KIYOSHI HAMASAKI

On June 5, 2010, Mr. Hamasaki, 63, passed away quietly and peacefully in the Critical Care Intensive Care Unit of the Anne Arundel Medical Center in Annapolis, Maryland. Mr. Hamasaki was born in Honolulu, Hawaii and was a 1964 graduate of the Iolani School. As a software engineer with advanced degrees in Chemistry and Computer Sciences from George Washington University, Cory Hamasaki worked in and around the Washington, D.C. metro area for many government agencies and private companies for almost 40 years. In the late 1990s, he founded the DC Weather Report, which predicted the economic unwinding and troubled times that followed the stock market crash on January 14, 2000. The W-RP Yahoo discussion group is an adjunct to the Weather Report, which offers people discussions on life, the economy, the world and technical issues. Suitable topics included preparedness, community, sharing news items, suggestions for surviving and prospering during the economic unwinding, as well as issues concerning computer programming, consulting, contracting, and preparing for exceptional events. Cory’s commentaries were noted for their humor, insight, irony, parody, and information on all aspects of life and self sufficiency.

Cory Hamasaki had a passionate and patriotic love for his country and the principles of the free enterprise system upon which our country was founded. He was a member of the Foundation for Amateur Radio – MD, D.C, VA Chapter, and enjoyed attending local Hamfests. His other interests included the joy of comic books, science fiction, history, dinosaurs, hand-craftsmanship, and the beauty of nature. Cory Hamasaki was best known for his generous heart, kind and gentle compassion for all, positive outlook on life, and his belief that we all have a responsibility to “pay-it-forward.”
A celebration memorial of his life will be held within 49 days of his passing. The family requests that in lieu of flowers that offerings of gratitude in the name of Cory Hamasaki be made payable and sent to: Lama Phurbu Tashi, 1220F Gemini Dr., Annapolis, MD 21403; or through the website of the Buddhist Gampopa Center at http://www.gampopacenter.com via paypal. Please note on the paypal link that the gratitude offering is in the name of Cory Hamasaki.

Cory Hamasaki was the very beloved husband of Nancy Jones Hoyt of Severna Park, Maryland, father of Chloe Kiyo Hamasaki, stepfather to Ayn Hoyt of Fredrica, DE, Eve Hoyt of Glenside, PA, and step-grandfather to Ani Rose and Celia Grace Varady of Glenside, PA. He was the son of the late Harold Hamasaki of Honolulu, Hawaii. The family wishes to express their gratitude and appreciation to all those who offered prayers for Cory in accordance with their own faith at the time of his passing.
