ROBERT ARTHUR ALLISON
June 24, 1929 – May 19, 2011

Robert “Bob” Allison, a founder of Warner Center in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles, California, died on May 19, 2011, of natural causes at his home in Newport Beach, California. He was 81. He is survived by his wife of 42 years, Kerstin, and their son David, as well as the children from his first marriage Thomas, Stephen, James and Susan Hughes and his sister Nancy Stefanides.

After serving 3 1/2 years on active sea duty as a Naval officer during the Korean War, Allison started work in 1955 at the Los Angeles office of Coldwell Banker in the mortgage loan department. He described Coldwell Banker as a ‘great group of guys and a great place to work’.

In 1962 he opened and managed the San Fernando Valley office for Coldwell Banker. Based on relationships he cultivated during those years, Allison brokered the sale of the undeveloped 630 acre “Warner Ranch” property, then owned by Harry Warner of Warner Brothers, to Aetna Life Insurance Company in 1969. Allison then worked on behalf of the early ownership to oversee the master planning, zoning, and land sales of what he dubbed ‘Warner Center’. He became involved in Los Angeles public affairs and was appointed by Mayor Sam Yorty as a member of the Los Angeles Economic Development Council. He went on to develop a fruitful working relationship with Mayor Tom Bradley, who bought into the vision of what Warner Center could become.

Allison later went on to develop much of the core business district of Warner Center in partnership with Robert Voit and New England Life Insurance Company. Warner Center is now one of the major urban centers in the greater Los Angeles area containing 1 1/2 square miles developed with retail, residential, commercial, hospital, office, industrial and hotel uses, with approximately 40,000 jobs and 11,300 residents located within its boundaries.

A humorous placard on his desk bore the inscription “Don’t start vast projects with half vast ideas”. A self described ‘dreamer’ and ‘farm boy’, Allison spent the summers of his youth on his grandfather’s ranch in San Martin, California, where he learned about the virtues of hard work and developed a tenacity that stayed with him throughout his life. After graduating from South Pasadena High School, he went on to college at USC (class of 1951) where he managed the football team his senior year.
In the early 1980s, Allison moved to Honolulu with his wife Kerstin and his young son David. He had spent several years during his boyhood in Honolulu and always had yearned to return there someday.

From his new home base in Hawaii he continued his numerous real estate development activities both in Hawaii and on the mainland. One notable project was the 251 South Lake building in Pasadena, which he developed in partnership with Hawaii hotelier and old family friend, Roy Kelly. He also developed multi-family housing and retail projects in Waikoloa Village on the Big Island of Hawaii during that time.

In 1993 he suffered a major brain aneurysm while in California from which he made a remarkable recovery but after which he no longer pursued new projects. His family is thankful for the last 18 years which gave him time to enjoy the fruits of his labor and to spend time with family and friends.

A memorial and celebration of his life will take place at 218 Kaimanawai Place in Honolulu at 5 PM on Monday, June 27th. Donations in his name can be made in lieu of flowers to The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund at www.fallenheroesfund.org.

MARILYN BLAISDELL ANE

MARILYN BLAISDELL ANE

Marilyn Blaisdell ’48 Ane, veteran Punahou School Kindergarten teacher and wife of the late legendary football coach, Charles Ane ’49, passed away peacefully at home on June 13, 2011. She was 80.

The daughter of former Honolulu mayor Neal S. Blaisdell and wife Lucy, Marilyn inherited a love of athletics from her father and a love for teaching from her mother. At Punahou, she presided over the Punahou Girls Athletic Association, which sponsored non-competitive interscholastic games, reigned as May Day Queen and rallied School spirit as a cheerleader. Her zest and charm caught the eye of football star Charles Teetai Ane, Jr. ’49, whom she later married.

Marilyn received her bachelor’s degree in social work and psychology from the University of Southern California. After living in Detroit during the 1950s, Marilyn persuaded her husband to move the family back to Hawai’i so that their three children would know their grandparents and have the opportunity to attend Punahou.

“The School meant so much to my mom,” said son Neal ’74. “She thought there were so many great qualities at Punahou in terms of education and a sense of tradition. She wanted us to experience that.” Marilyn joined Punahou School in 1965 as a teaching assistant, becoming a kindergarten teacher two years later, after completing her master’s in education at the University of Hawai’i.

Beyond her innate love of children, Marilyn found creative ways to celebrate ‘ohana. She launched such School traditions as Kindergarten Christmas caroling, the Flaming ‘P’ and Kupuna Day, and helped with the lu’au for new faculty. These beloved customs have become part of the fabric of the Punahou experience. In 2007, the Punahou Alumni Association recognized Marilyn with its highest honor, the “O” in Life Award.

Marilyn was a talented teacher and in 1975 received the Outstanding Elementary Teachers of America Award. Her greatest gift, however, was the enduring impact she has had on the lives of her students, many of whom have named her as their most influential teacher.

Marilyn spent her final weekend at the Punahou Reunion, reveling in the camaraderie of schoolmates and leading a rousing cheer of “Strawberry Shortcake!” “That’s Mom,” said son Kale ’71. “She loved the tradition and she loved being the torchbearer for the spirit of the school. That’s her way of sharing with everybody.”

In his message to faculty and staff, Punahou President Jim Scott wrote, ” ‘Tutu’ Ane will be greatly missed. As we mourn her passing, we also know that her spirited embrace of life will continue to live on in all those who have been graced by her inimitable presence.”

Marilyn is survived by Kale, Punahou associate director of athletics; daughter Malia ’72, who has taught third grade at Punahou and recently was named K-12 Hawaiian Studies Director at the School; and Neal, a kumu at Ka Waihona o ka Na’auao. Tutu also was blessed with seven grandchildren and five great grandchildren whom she loved dearly. Her beloved husband passed away in 2007 after a stellar career as a football standout at Punahou, USC and in the NFL, and as a renowned high school football coach in Hawai’i.

Services will be held Friday, June 24 with visitation from 3 – 4:30 p.m. and service to follow at Thurston Memorial Chapel on the Punahou School campus. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Charles Teetai Ane, Jr. ’49 and Marilyn Blaisdell ’48 Ane Endowed Scholarship.
