3-30 612899 Stephanie FarmerSTEPHANIE TURCOTTE FARMER December 28, 1963 – March 17, 2014 Stephanie Turcotte Farmer was born on 28 December, 1963 and passed away on Monday, 17 March 2014 after a valiant battle with cancer. She was surrounded by her family and friends at her brand new home in Schertz, Texas. Stephanie was born in Princeton, Illinois and raised in Seabrook, Texas. She attended the University of Texas at Austin where she met her future husband, Patrick Farmer. They were married in September 1989 and she threw her energy fully into the challenge of being a military wife. She was a meticulous housekeeper, organized beyond description and especially accomplished at baking, counted cross stitch, crochet, needlepoint and puzzles (crossword and jigsaw alike). Through years of moving around the country she kept her family’s home life moving in well-oiled precision despite whatever external pressures and chaos whirled about. Stephanie was prepared for any catastrophe that had the temerity to present itself, she was never without a spare anything and always had time to talk to family and friends alike regardless of the hour of day. Steph was any friend’s most ardent advocate and any opponent’s most bitter and stubborn adversary. She fought cancer to an impressive standstill for three years before ultimately falling to the dreaded disease. Stephanie is survived by her husband of 24 years Patrick, her mother Rita Gibson, stepfather Roger Gibson, brothers Brad and Brett Turcotte, mother-in-law Darlina Farmer, father-in-law Butch Farmer, sister-in-law Toni Turcotte and her beloved dog Mochi. She is preceded in death by her father Chuck Turcotte. Visitation and memorial service was held at the Schertz Funeral Home on Friday, March 21, 2014 from 6:30PM to 9:00PM.

3-30 RICHARD MOSS NEW COLOR PHOTORICHARD RICK M. MOSS Rick Moss, P.E., 64, of Honolulu, Hawaii passed away March 22, 2014 at home after a courageous battle with throat cancer. He was born in Petaluma, CA, the son of Lorraine E Moss and the late Myrel A Moss of California. Rick came to Hawaii after seeing Elvis’ movie, Blue Hawaii. He fell in love with the islands and the people. After graduating from the University of Hawaii with a degree in Electrical Engineering, he worked at Toft Moss Farrow, then left in 1994 to start his own company, Moss Engineering. Rick traveled extensively and his favorite place was Bali. Always an inquisitive person, he would spend his vacations wandering through museums or exploring cities and towns, camera in hand. He enjoyed surfing, body surfing, and was a black run skier. He had a penchant for spy novels and read anything he could get his hands on. Rick’s passions included antiques, trains and Harley Davidson motorcycles. He was proud of the fact that he was the “token haole” in the Ching Ohana, who loved him dearly and will miss him tremendously. He was a dedicated member of the Rotary Club of Hawaii and the Exchange Club of Downtown Honolulu. Each year he volunteered to serve Thanksgiving dinner to the foster families. And you could always find him socializing with the Boys Bunch every Tuesday night. He made many friends throughout his brief life and the following are comments from some of his friends upon learning of his passing: “..a great man, knowledgeable and sincere” PP “I always had the utmost respect and admiration for Rick across every conceivable dimension..solid guy with core values of the best kind.” JM “..when we spoke, he was listening. A rare gift these days.” VR “..will never forget his great sense of humor…his love of life and Hawaii, and how much he loved Val and his two beautiful kids.” WB “..and afterward we went out and drank way too much wine. Guy bonding. He left a lot of people better for knowing him.” TS Our dear Rick stood for integrity, morals and righteousness. He is gone but not forgotten, he lives on through the lessons and values he shared with his wife, children and all who were fortunate to know him. Rick is survived by his wife of 27 years, Valerie Ching Moss, daughter Lian and son Logan of Honolulu, mother Lorraine E Moss and stepdad Lynn Koonce of Lakeport, CA and sister Donna (Michael) Berg of Redding, CA.

3-30 HELEN ROSETE NAGTALON-MILLERHELEN ROSETE NAGTALON-MILLER 85, died at home in Ahuimanu Hills, Kahaluu on March 2, 2014, following hospitalization for pneumonia. She is survived by her husband of 62 years Bob Miller, 3 nieces, 4 nephews, 5 grand-nieces, 2 grand-nephews, 2 Aunts and numerous cousins. She was born in Waipahu to Fausta Rosete Nagtalon and Dionicio Reyes Nagtalon, who predeceased her, as did her younger sister Juliet Nagtalon Miller. Helen attended August Ahrens Elementary School in Waipahu and for the third grade, Shamrock School in Laoag, Ilokos Norte, Philippines; Waipahu Intermediate and High School, Class of 1946; University of Hawaii, B.Ed. (English & Music) 1950, 5th Year Professional Certificate (Secondary Level) 1951, M.A.(French) 1967; Sorbonne, Paris, France, Dipl�me D’�tudes de Civilisation fran�aise, 1962; Ohio State University, Ph.D. Foreign Language Education, Philosophy of Education, 1972. She taught at Nanaikopono Elementary in Nanakuli, Waipahu Elementary, Jarrett Intermediate, and Kalani High School. While at Kalani Helen volunteered to take over the French classes when their teacher was hospitalized. She enjoyed the experience so much that she applied for and received a sabbatical leave to study at the Sorbonne in Paris the following school year. Following her studies at the Sorbonne, Helen and her husband traveled through as much of France and Europe. She resumed teaching at Kalani but after a couple of years decided to pursue graduate studies in French at UH, earning a Masters degree in French Literature while working as a Graduate Assistant. With a job as an Instructor in the Foreign Language Department, Helen found that the career ahead of her was restricted to teaching beginning French unless she got a Ph.D. so she enrolled the Graduate School at Ohio State University in Language Education and Philosophy of Education, specializing in Analytic Philosophy. Her Ph.D. was awarded in 1972 and as a reward Helen and Bob flew to Paris where they spent six weeks touring parts of France and especially Paris that they had rushed through ten years before. Helen’s final two decades of employment were varied and rewarding including counseling graduate students in the School of Social Work and in the School of Public Health, Operation Manong, and administering the Bilingual-Bicultural Program in the DOE. Helen was appointed to the Hawaii Advisory Committee to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights during the Reagan Administration and served as Chairperson from 1983-85; she was appointed to the Governor’s ad hoc Committee on the Status of Women; to the first Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Commission; in 1996 when the board of directors of the Filipino Community Center was expanded from three to 16 she was one of the new members; she was a founding member of Filipino-American Historical Society of Hawaii (FAHSOH) and its President from 1981-2000; was a member and served on the Board of Directors of the Japanese-American Citizens League (JACL) from 1981-2000; served on the Hawaii Committee for the Humanities (HCH) now named the Hawaii Council for the Humanities; and was active in other civic and human rights groups. Helen was the recipient of several awards, among them a “Women of Distinction” award from the Honolulu County Committee on the Status of Women in 1982; the 1985 National Education Association “Award for Leadership in Asian and Pacific Island Affairs” in Washington, D. C.; the 1986 Alan F. Saunders Civil Liberties Award from the ACLU for Outstanding Contributions and Dedication to Civil Liberties in Hawaii; and a 1994 University of Hawaii Distinguished Alumni Award.
