JONATHAN TEHO PARK

Posted On August 13th, 2013 -

JONATHAN TEHO PARK July 14, 2013 Jonathan Teho Park, 60, died at home in Kailua, Oahu shortly before his 61st birthday. He is survived by his longtime partner, Wynona Tyson of Seattle, his brother, Joel T. Park, sister, Sandra (Tesyl) Park, brother-in-law, John W. Hamburger, nieces Naomi Wile Hamburger and Sarah Hark Sun Hamburger, and nephew David Keola Hamburger. His parents were Lily Pok Hee Park and Harry Young Ho Park, both in Jonathan’s daily care in their late years, until their passing. A private memorial will take place with close family and friends. According to his mother’s notes in a baby book, Jonathan was born early in the morning under the Sun as ruling planet. As a young man, Jonathan loved spear fishing with his brother, spending hours in the water filling his mesh bag with good eating fish and squid. His love of the outdoors came full circle when he discovered sea kayaking in Kailua Bay. Collecting cars and bikes, Jonathan could fix what was broken, restoring castoffs to vintage, cherry condition. Have you ever seen a bike with koa wood pedals? Jonathan lived in Seattle for over 20 years, working in auto body by day and pursuing his interest in art and music. Following voice training under Eunice DeMello of Honolulu, he studied under the direction of Penelope “Penny” Vrachopoulos of the Peccadillo Players of Seattle. In supporting and lead roles, Jonathan performed in productions of light opera, including Iolanthe, Ruddygore, and The Mikado. He also performed in a stage play of Philip Kan Gotanda’s “The Wash” in Seattle. Friends and family treasure Jonathan’s charcoal drawings and oil paintings as well as curious objects he fashioned as jewelry or tools. In the Kailua High School band, Jonathan played the tuba and other wind instruments. He liked to find bargains at the local Salvation Army Thrift Store and garage sales. Finding an old coronet, he worked on its stuck parts and dented body until he could play it tunefully. Strumming the guitar or ukelele, Jonathan’s sweet renditions of old songs could charm the birds out of trees. Jonathan sang in the choir of St. Clement’s Episcopal Church in Makiki and, more recently, he was a beloved regular in the choir of the Han Sheng Music Association of Hawaii. He enjoyed learning to sing Chinese phonetically and deeply enjoyed the company of choir members. His nieces and nephew, Naomi, David, and Sarah, cherish memories of Christmas visits with Jonathan, bowling at Pali Lanes and singing karaoke at a local bar after a hearty dinner. Then, more treats and talking story. We will always love Jonathan for his fiercely singular ways and gentle heart. The sun, whose rays are all ablaze with ever-living glory, does not deny his majesty!
