ISAAC KU’ULEIALOHAKAIOKALEPONI AHUE (“IKE”)

Posted On September 16th, 2015 -

$nameISAAC KU'ULEIALOHAKAIOKALEPONI AHUE (IKE) On September 3, 2015, another quiet hero of the greatest generation passed away. He was 96 years young and lived a life of dedication, loyalty, and love. A kind and loving soul, Ike was fiercely dedicated to family and duty. He set a high standard for himself, inspiring those around him. A no-nonsense guy, he told it like it was. If you were in the wrong, he'd set you right; and, if you were doing right, you were the "best-est." Ike loved his family deeply and was loved greatly in return. As Chief Engineer with the Military Sea Transportation Services (MSTS), he held the rank of a U.S. Navy Captain. At one time he was one of only two marine engineers licensed to operate any ship across the Seven Seas. Throughout his 30-year career he received many commendations, always with great humility and great humor. On one occasion he saved a sinking ship that had already been abandoned by the Captain. When asked why he did so he humorously responded, "the water was too cold to jump in, so it was better to run it aground." Doing so not only saved the ship, but hundreds of crewmen still aboard. Born in Hana, Maui on April 17, 1919 to Charles and Mary Kahinu Kaleo Ahue and grandson to James and Louisa Tilton Kaleo, Ike was a proud graduate of Kamehameha Schools, Class of 1938. He was predeceased by his first wife of 38 years, Matilda "Tillie" Wahinealoha Lee and 8 of his siblings. He is survived by 2 sisters, Angela (Richard) Rother, Gloria (Eddie) Heu; Rose Marie Large, his second wife of 36 years; daughters, Julie (Tyrone) Toussaint, Haidee (Les) Benedict; stepson, Scott (Terri) Kidd; 4 grandchildren, 4 great-grandchildren; and extended Ohana. Services: September 12, Forest Lawn Cemetery, Glendale, California.

Services set for benefactor, ‘Sully’s’ widow

Star-Advertiser staff

A memorial service for philanthropist and prominent community leader Joanna Sullivan will be held Sunday at ‘Iolani School.Screen Shot 2015-09-18 at 10.08.06 PM copy

Sullivan, widow of Foodland founder Maurice J. “Sully” Sullivan, died at her home in Honolulu on Sept. 2 at the age of 94.

Family, friends and Foodland employees will pay tribute to her in services Sunday at the Sullivan Center for Innovation and Leadership. All Foodland stores on Oahu will be closed from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Sunday so that employees can attend.

The daughter of Chinese immigrants, Sullivan was born July 4, 1921 in Honolulu. The McKinley High School graduate was studying at the University of Hawaii when she left school to help her mother run Lanikai Store, a small grocery in Kailua. She met her late husband at the store, and he would later become her family’s business partner. They opened Foodland Market City on May 6, 1948. Joanna Sullivan named the store Foodland.

The Sullivans supported numerous causes and organizations, and after Maurice Sullivan died, Joanna Sullivan continued building on his legacy through contributions. She supported the funding of scholarships at ‘Iolani and Punahou schools as well as Chaminade University, and the Hawaii Rotary Youth Foundation. She also made large gifts to St. Francis Cardiac Care Center, Cancer Research Center of Hawaii, Ronald McDonald House, the Queen’s Medical Center-West Oahu, Honolulu Museum of Art, Sullivan Administration building at Punahou School, Sullivan Library at Chaminade University and Sullivan Center at ‘Iolani School.

Joanna Sullivan was named Philanthropist of the Year by the Association of Fundraising Professionals-Honolulu Chapter in 2008 and again in 2013.

She is survived by children Kitty Sullivan Wo, Jenai Sullivan Wall, Colleen Sullivan and Patrick Sullivan; and five grandchildren.

Sunday’s services at ‘Iolani will begin with visitation at 9:30 a.m., followed by memorial services from 11 a.m. to noon. Parking will be available at the school’s parking lot on Kamoku Street. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Hawaii, Honolulu Museum of Art, Hawaii Rotary Youth Foundation, ‘Iolani School, Punahou School or Chaminade University.
