VICTOR RITTENBAND

Victor Rittenband, 83, husband of the late Nancy Gustafsson, passed away last week in Honolulu, Hawaii, from cardiovascular complications. Born in Newark, New Jersey, he traveled to California where he worked for an insurance company. He was transferred to Hawaii where he met his wife Nancy, the ambassador of aloha. Their happiest moments were spent promoting Hawaiian music and hulu by performing and sharing their recordings with others. Vic also translated the Hawaiian songs into Japanese for his friends. He will be especially missed by his Spanish and Ukulele classmates of late at Waikiki Community Center. A celebration of his life will be held in November. alawaivic@aol.com
