Goldie (Harrison) Arkin

Posted On March 31st, 2018 -

Born in Toronto, Canada June 16, 1924, the oldest daughter of Max and Freda Harrison, Goldie Arkin grew up in a thriving Jewish community with her sisters Betty and Lillian, and brother Sonny. She and her husband Norman were young kibbutzniks in the new state of Israel, living there for 2 years. They returned to Toronto in 1950 during her first pregnancy with Don, and moved to upstate NY, where Harvey (1952) and Anne were born (1955). The family then settled in Northbrook, IL for 15 years. When their children left home, they were amongst the early condo-dwellers at the John Hancock Building in downtown Chicago. There she lived a rich life until moving to Honolulu in 2011 to be near her granddaughter, Mala, and great grandchildren, Asha and Eli. Goldie was an avid reader, and a lifetime learner. A self-educated supporter of the arts, she ushered at opera and theatre, and was a docent at Chicago museums. She was active in Jewish women's organizations, did hospice visiting as well as rape victim accompaniment to hospital emergency rooms. She crewed on a friend's sailboat in Chicago, and at age 80 she finally became a bat mitzvah. While in Hawai'i, she combined her love of arts and Jewish faith by helping organize the Honolulu Jewish Film Festival. Goldie had a great zest for life and remarkable physical stamina; her dynamic style was matched by her sense of adventure and independence; she is remembered for always being willing to try something new. Goldie passed on 1/18/18. www.goldie-arkin.forevermissed.com

WALLACE RYOICHI SUGAI

Posted On March 31st, 2018 -

WALLACE RYOICHI SUGAIAge 99, of Pearl City, passed away peacefully at home on January 31, 2018. Born June 3, 1918 in Waialua, Oahu, the Sugai family moved to Ewa when Wallace was a young boy. As the eldest son in a family of 10 children, many responsibilities fell on his young shoulders. So, when Wallace completed the 8th grade and graduated from Ewa School, he immediately applied for a job with the Ewa Plantation Company to help out with household expenses. He started cutting grass for $1 a day and later worked in the mill before training to become a journeyman carpenter. Those skills came in handy as he made furniture for the home, wooden toys for his children and sharpened saws for fellow plantation co-workers. After nearly 50 years, he retired from the plantation. Always a hard worker, Wallace made time to tend to his 10-bed vegetable garden, fruit trees, flowers and orchids. He also cared for pet dogs, yellow finches, carp and kingyo, but, his lifelong passion was fishing a pastime he shared with his father. He spent many weekends shoreline fishing, throwing his fish net and hunting for octopus. Wallace is survived by daughter Sandra "Sandi" Yara and grand- son Colin "Co" Yara. Yaeko, his wife of 75 years, and son Scott, pre-deceased him. Services will be held on Saturday, April 21 at Mililani Mortuary Mauka Chapel. Visitation 10 am; memorial service 11 am; refreshments and lunch to follow. Casual attire.
