JOAN WAKE WONG

Posted On June 25th, 2017 -

First appeared at Manchester General Hospital on November 4th,1932 and spent her early childhood and adolescent years growing up and attending all girls' schools in Cheshire England. The most memorable event was being evacuated to Anglesea with sister Bunty and Nana and having to live in an abandoned gate house without running water or electricity during World War Two. Water was acquired by the bucket and carried home each morning and evening. The frequent bombing raids, and later, V-1 and V-2 rocket barrages, forced the relocation of thousands of children and elders. Joan emigrated to the US in 1955 and first settled in Denver and later moved to Aurora, CO. Almost daily views of the Rockies was the backdrop for planning the activities that would provide the greatest returns for her family. The moment arrived for what each person was waiting for: orders for a reassignment "home" to Oahu. On arriving at Hickam Terminal and smelling the Plumeria and the flower leis at the lei sellers' stands, Joan declared "I'm home at last !" to everyone, and broke into tears of joy. Except for a two year tour of duty to Taipei and a year on a sabbatical to Portland, Joan spent a total of 52 years "living Hawaii" Joan immersed herself in volunteering in the community to learn all aspects of "living Hawaii." Joan volunteered in the classes her children attended. Eventually she began volunteering in the community including Waimano Home, Red Cross at Tripler, old Kaiser Hospital on Ala Moana, the new Kaiser at Moanalua, the Honolulu Academy of Arts, and Hawaii Literacy. Joan also liked to visit different churches to observe and later attend those favored, including twenty years at Keauhou Church and later attended Hope Chapel Honolulu. Joan is survived by partner and husband of 64 years Solomon W. Wong; son Keith R. Wake of Medical Lake, WA; daughters Susan (Peter) Hummel of Kaneohe, Hawaii; Roberta (Robin)(Jeff Cotter)Wong of Kailua, Hawaii; Laura J Wong of Kamuela and Na'alehu, Hawaii; and Lynne (Rene) Adams of Kamuela, and Whidbey Island WA. Grandchildren include Brian Wake of Coldert, WA; Dr. SarahJeanne Wong-Goodrich of Manhasset, NY; Brandy DeAngelo and Brittney Wake of Spokane WA; Kamren Adams and Malea Adams of Whidbey Island, WA.

He is survived by son Grant and grandsons Gareth and Gavan of Georgetown, TX, grandson Greg of Thornton, CO, daughter Audrey of Honolulu, brother Harry and sister-in-law Harriet of Raymore, MO, and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins. He was born in Osceola, MO on October 23, 1932 and raised in Osceola and Kansas City. He grew up with a strong work ethic which led him to be the first in his family to graduate from college. He graduated with a civil engineering degree from the University of Missouri in 1954 and afterwards spent 2 years in the Army. He married Nanette Preston on March 8, 1958. Over the next few years they followed his career and moved to Chicago, back to Kansas City, then San Diego, Los Angeles, and Concord, California. One of the original founding members of Charles Pankow, Inc., in 1965 he transferred with his wife and 2 young children to Hawaii. After completing his first project, the Campbell Building, he was tasked with finding more projects to build. Ultimately he created one of the most successful and reputable construction and development organizations in the state and influenced the skyline of Honolulu. More than 50 buildings in Hawaii can be attributed to his success and leadership. After his retirement from Pankow in September of 1991 he developed the Aloha Tower Marketplace project which was his last building project. His influence extended to the people around him who described him as a highly respected businessman and mentor. Many of the people he influenced are now guiding construction and development throughout the United States and credit George for showing them the right way to do things. George loved the shooting sports and was an avid target shooter traveling all over the world to compete against the best. He held a Master classification from the NRA and relished beating "hot-shot" shooters that were decades younger than him. Cribbage was his favorite game and he was found playing it regularly in the card room of the Pacific Club or with his son and grandsons. A Celebration of Life will be held at the Pacific Club in Honolulu on July 10th from 5:30p to 8:30p. Burial will be private. In lieu of flowers or gifts, a donation can be made to the Le Jardin Academy Annual Fund in memory of George F. Hutton.
