William Harry “Maggie” Maguire

Posted On March 4th, 2012 -

WILLIAM HARRY “MAGGIE” MAGUIRE

William Harry “Maggie” Maguire, 82, died in Kirkland, Washington, January 13, 2012, from complications related to diabetes. He was born at Naalehu Ka’u, Hawaii, March 25, 1929. After graduation from Roosevelt High School in 1948, Bill spent a year working at sea for Young Brothers, and then left home to attend Hartnell College in Salinas, Calif.. He graduated from the University of Denver where he earned a B.S. Degree in Mechanical Engineering. He played football at both schools and lived with a close-knit group of other Hawaii students with whom he would remain lifelong friends. Bill served in the Navy, married Joan Whorton, and was stationed on a ship in San Diego, Ca.. His engineering career began with Martin Marietta in Littleton, Colo., and continued with Carrier Air Conditioning in Seattle. In 1971 Bill was offered the position of branch manager with Carrier in Honolulu, a position he held for many years. His work exists today in numerous high-rise and large-scale architectural projects in the Northwest, Hawaii and throughout the Pacific. Bill and his family were long-time residents of Haiku Plantations in Kaneohe where life in the presence of the beautiful Ko’olaus brought the family great joy. A lifelong sports enthusiast and proponent of exercise, Bill particularly loved the game of golf, and spent many enjoyable days on Island courses with friends. But most often he golfed with a merry band of rascals known as the Hui-o-Hackers. Later, Bill moved to Berryville Va., where he opened a coin laundry business and grew the world’s best tomatoes. With second wife Maisie, Bill joined Millwood Country club. The highlight of his retirement was playing a round on the Old Course at St. Andrews in Scotland. In Virginia, Bill took pleasure in the company and camaraderie he had with his “pals” at Gold’s gym. Bill enjoyed a long association as a member of Honolulu Rotary, and was a life long supporter of the University of Denver. He was an accomplished artisan with projects in wood and glass. He worked in Washington D.C. to raise awareness of diabetes and was a strong advocate for daily exercise, and a healthy diet of fresh fish, fruit and vegetables. Throughout his long illness, which included amputations and numerous medical procedures, Bill maintained an indefatigably positive attitude, and was known to say “I am fortunate to never have felt sick, a day in my life.” Bill was immensely proud his Hawaiian ancestry, and claimed it was the source of his internal strength. He took great pride in the achievements of his family, but the truth is that his Ohana appreciated him for the example he set for them in character, determination and positivity. Bill is survived by daughter Karen Maguire, son William J. Maguire and wife Michelle, grandchildren Rachael Makamae and Janelle Kamalei, brothers John J. Maguire, George Maguire, Charles T. Maguire and sister Merna Kin In. Bill was preceded in death by sister Katherine Pires. A Memorial celebration commemorating his life will be held Saturday, March 10, at 11 a.m. at the Pacific Club, aloha attire. Club code requires collar shirts, shoes and prohibits cell phones.
