JAMES MACLEAN KALUA’AHA
“KIMO” TILTON
James MacLean Kalua’aha “Kimo” Tilton, 64, peacefully departed for heaven from home early Wednesday morning, August 8, following a month of hospitalization for complications due to cancer.
Born in Honolulu, Jim grew up in Kaneohe, graduating from Castle High School in 1965. He served in the United States Navy for three years and then earned a Federal Aviation Administration Airframe & Powerplant Certification from Northrop Institute of Technology in 1970. His career as an aviation mechanic included employment in Kwajalien, Honolulu and San Francisco. In 1979 he became a building maintenance engineer and in 2008 retired from United Airlines after 21 years of service. However, aircraft mechanic and building engineer became Jim’s avocations as his true vocation and calling emerged: serving his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, in His church as musician and worship leader, board member and officer, small group leader and in countless other ways. Jim blessed many a gathering with his exceptional musical gifts.
Son of John Tilton and Margaret Cobb-Adams Tilton, Jim is survived by his wife Lynn; daughter Lisa Yarrow (Walt); three grandchildren; sister Jonnette Tilton Kapu (Henry, Sr.); nephews Henry Kapu, Jr. (Rana), Shenandoah Kapu (Melissa), Shon Kapu, Alan Watson, Jr., Dwayne Jeremiah, Kalani Lorenzo, William Kalakau IV (Lisa), Damien Kalakau, Herbert “Aina” Kamakeeaina, Jr. (Noi); nieces Paulette Taylor (James), Alana Kamaka Ota, Kawai Kaelberer (Eric), Allie M.

He was 7 years old when it was discovered he had a rapidly growing brain tumor. The prognosis was poor, and the doctors predicted he would live 5 years. He was given experimentally high irradiation treatments when the tumor could not be removed in the entirety. This resulted in extensive brain damages. He was on life sustaining drugs for many years and suffered from many TIA episodes and strokes. However, he survived 41 more years than prognosticated. He graduated from Punahou School in 1978 and received his Bachelor of Arts degree in 1982 in computer science from Chaminade University of Honolulu. The road he traveled was full of potholes and roadblocks, but he met each challenge with determination and great courage.
While working at Wheeler Army Air Field in Honolulu, Hawaii, he was recognized by the Defense Information System Agency-Pacific area for answering and resolving over 300 trouble calls in a two months period for a varying staff of 60-100 people. He was honored as employee of the month for Region 9, which encompasses the West Coast and Pacific area, for his knowledge, efficiency and effectiveness. Prior to his medical retirement he worked for the Hawaii Department of Health, Health Information Systems Office and assigned to the State Health Insurance Program. He also did volunteer work for many non-profit organizations during his lifetime.
Terry is survived by his mother, Florence J. Chinn, M.D. (Florence Chinn Loui), brothers; Professor Michael C. Loui (Cynthia), Warren R. Loui, Esq. (Rose), William S. Loui, M.D. (Sheree) and Professor Ronald P. Loui (Melissa); nephews Eric, Jeremy, Nicholas, Ryan, Thomas, Kyle, Alexander, and Gregory; nieces Samantha and Natalie.

LAWRENCE MITSUO SHIMAZU

LAWRENCE MITSUO SHIMAZU
Lawrence Mitsuo Shimazu, 90, passed away peacefully in Honolulu. “A flower lei circlet, knows no loneliness,
as it hugs the happy traveler”-Haiku by Lawrence Shimazu
Lawrence lived a full and happy life having accomplished all that he wanted during his lifetime. He graduated from McKinley High School and attended the University of Hawaii and received his Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degrees in Horticulture, Art, and Business Education. Few years later, he attended New York University and obtained his Master of Arts in Business Education and enrolled in the doctoral program. He was also initiated into the New York University Alpha Chapter of Delta Pi Epsilon (an honorary graduate fraternity in Business Education). On his sabbatical leave, he attended Hitotsubashi University in Japan to expand his knowledge in Japanese History and Art. He also graduated from the local Japanese Language School (equivalent to junior college level) enabling him to speak and write Japanese characters fluently.
In his earlier years, he taught at Farrington High School and was the chairman of the Business Department. Soon after, he transferred to the University of Hawaii Community College at Pensacola and was appointed by the Provost to serve as Chairman for the entire Business Department. During this professional career, he was honored as outstanding educator by the Hawaii Business Education Association.
In addition, he was the Proprietor of Flowers by Lawrence on South King Street for 35 years where he was well known for his exquisite floral arrangements and wedding bouquets. He worked diligently but made time to relax and traveled extensively to many places in the world. However, his favorite was to his ancestral country, Japan, where he visited over 60 times and countless times to Las Vegas and won many jackpots. Lawrence, indeed, fulfilled his life’s dream leaving nothing he wished he had done.
He was predeceased in death by brothers, Iwao and Tokutaro; sisters, Dorothy Nakayama, Ellen Yamamoto, and Eleanore Maehara. Survived by sister, Laura Inake, and numerous nieces and nephews; companion and caregiver, Van Isotani; hanai couple and caregivers, Derrick and Sai; nieces and caregivers, Shirley and Nadine. Lawrence will be remembered as a highly talented man with a keen sense of humor and intelligence. “Memories flicker like lighted candle, a journey’s end”
