Arthur Char94, of Manoa and a veteran of World War II, passed away on September 27, 2018. He was born and raised in Honolulu where he graduated from Saint Louis School. After returning from a business college in Los Angeles, he worked for the federal government until retirement. Together with wife Audrey, they had three sons and had been married for 36 years until her death. In 1988, he met longtime companion, Edith Ota, while playing the slot machines in Las Vegas and they spent the next 25 years traveling the world until her death in 2013. Dad, Gramps, Great Grandpa, or "Timmy" loved good food, wine, traveling, and people. In his 94 years, he did more, ate more, and saw more than many families of four do altogether. Wherever he went, he always left a new friend and more than a few laughs. He loved his family and friends ardently and demanded only the best for them. Having lived a full and rewarding life, he is survived by sons Randall (Joline) and Landis; grandchildren Sandra (Sanford), Ramona (Kalei), and Tara; and four great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by son Kyland, wife Audrey, and companion Edith. Visitation: 9:00AM; Services: 10:00AM on Saturday, November 10, 2018 at Nuuanu Mortuary.
