JACK FRANCIS DICK

Posted On September 10th, 2017 -

JACK FRANCIS DICKJuly 21, 1933 - July 27, 2017 Jack Franklin Dick, Businessman and Civil Leader, died of cancer on July 27, 2017 at his home in Aina Haina surrounded by family and friends. He was 84. Jack was born on July 21, 1933 in Cleveland, Ohio and after his father's death, moved with his siblings to his grandmother's family home in Mobile, Alabama. Jack earned the distinction of "Golden Glove Boxing Champion" of Mobile and while in high school, played on the "All City" football team. He won a college football scholarship to Southern Mississippi University where he attended until he joined the Marine Corps. While in the Marines, he played football as an "All Conference" tackle. He remembered playing the U of H at their Homecoming game where they lost by one point. It was at this game that he met his wife to be, Homecoming Queen, Diane Rego, (deceased). Jack and Diane moved to Mobile only to return to Hawaii to manage the newly opened Leonard's Bakery in Kapahulu. After several years he opened a German Pastry Shoppe in Kailua. He later moved the bakery to Kaimuki and renamed it "Dick's Danish Pastry Shoppe". He organized a fund raising event at his bakery to help raise funds for boy scouts with special needs to attend the special Olympics in Los Angeles. Jack and his fellow rotarians made 2000 loaves of sweet bread and hit Kahala Mall with the boy scouts. They were sold out within two hours! Jack operated his pastry shop for 32 years until he retired in 1990. He would often say, "Lincoln freed the slaves, but he forgot the bakers". Jack became a Rotarian in 1978 becoming Rotary Club President in 1988. In 1980 he was named "Man of The Year". He was very involved in his community and served as President of both the Kaimuki Business and Professional Association and the Kaimuki Lion's Club and worked to establish the Kaimuki Neighborhood Board. Perhaps, one of Jack's favorite things was being the "official" Santa Claus in the annual KPBA Christmas Parade for the last 30 plus years. He brought smiles to the faces of more than one generation of children, who in turn brought their own children to see the parade every year. Upon retirement, Jack continued to keep himself busy! He bought and completely restored his Grandmother's colonial home in Mobile, Alabama. The project took him nearly two years to complete and qualified for the National Historic Register. Jack is survived by his brother, Herman G. Dick; sister, R. Sherlane Dick; Fiancee, Judith Powers; daughters, Joy Takane Cunefare of Kona, Hawaii and Karen Ruth Dick-Kung (Francis) of Honolulu, Hawaii; granddaughter, Karring Yee Kung, of Chicago, Illinois. Services will be held on Saturday, September 16, 2017 at Mary, Star of the Sea Catholic Church in Kahala. Visitation & Viewing: 11:00 a.m.; Eulogy: 12:30 p.m.; Mass: 1:00 p.m.; Burial to follow at Hawaiian Memorial Park Cemetery in Kaneohe. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Jude Children's Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. Mahalo Jack for all that you did for everyone. You will be missed!
