RICHARD MUNRO TOWILL

Posted On February 9th, 2014 -

2-9 RICHARD MUNRO TOWILLRICHARD MUNRO TOWILL Richard Munro Towill was born in Honolulu to Roswell Murray and Jeannie Munro Towill on 29 June, 1929. His fondest childhood memory was the sweet sound of nahenahe Hawaiian melodies, shared by Hawaiian musicians, who would travel the neighborhood during the holidays in a touring car in Kapa’a, on Kauai. While growing up at the top of Ke’eaumoku Street, he recalled hearing the lions roar from the Honolulu Zoo on a Kona night. A graduate of Hanahau’oli School and then a member of the class of 1947 at Punahou School, he earned a degree in Civil Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, followed by two years of service in the Air Force at Wright Field. Joining his dad in Honolulu, he worked for and assumed the presidency at the RM Towill Corporation and with his leadership; the company became one of the largest Civil Engineering, Surveying and Aerial mapping concerns in Hawai’i. During his tenure some of the most notable projects included the designs of; the Hawaiian Memorial and the Valley of the Temples Memorial Parks, the Honolulu Airport’s reef runway, the Queen Ka’ahumanu Highway on Hawai’i island, the Sand Island and Honouliuli Wastewater Treatment Plants, and his favorite and one he was most proud of; the Mount Ka’ala access road. Inspired by the sweet melodies of his childhood and love of Hawaiian music, and along with the loving help of Marge Hansen his most celebrated achievement and gift to the Hawaiian community has been 29 years of Ka Himeni Ana. Begun at Orvis Auditorium and then home at the Hawai’i Theatre, the concert encourages budding musicians to share their talents of Hawaiian music, the nahenahe way and unamplified. Some of the many successful groups over the years include Alea, Pekelo, Holunape, Kanilau, Hookena and many others. Each concert has offered an evening with the abundance of lei, aloha, the fragrance of awapuhi, and the sweet sounds of nahenahe Hawaiian music. Richard would describe the evening as “a treat to the senses and where all of the participants were winners!” The other remarkable achievement was the publishing of his grandfather “Pa” Munro’s; The Story of Lana’i, which he and son Rick filled with old images of ranching days on Lana’i as well as the genealogies of all of the Hawaiian families on Lana’i that Pa completed, as begun by Charles Gay when he owned the island. Richard’s “service above self” as a long standing member of The Rotary Club of Honolulu also included service as a Board member of; Schuman Carriage Company, the Hawai’i Opera Theatre, the Lyon Arboretum, and The Hawaiian Music Hall of Fame. He expected the highest standard of excellence, and at the same time he showered his family, friends, and colleagues with an abundance of love and aloha. He received the Kalani Alii award (the highest of honors) bestowed upon him by the four Royal Societies (Ahu Hipa) in 2012. Richard “pushed off” very comfortably and peacefully at home on the afternoon of 30 January with his beloved caregiver Amara. He is survived by his former wife Pats, their son Rick and daughter Liz, grandsons Mark and Ian, nieces, nephews and cousins. The Family will host a final “Cheerio” and Celebration of Life on 16 February at 3 PM at the home of Crystal and Rick; 47-460 Waihe’e Place in Kahalu’u. No flowers or lei please, but donations may be made to the Richard M. Towill family Foundation.

Harold L. “Bill” Child, Jr.

Posted On February 9th, 2014 -

2-9 600540   Harold Child JrHAROLD L. BILL CHILD, JR. Former FBI Special Agent and Legal Attache Harold L. “Bill” Child, Jr. passed away on January 16, 2014 in Honolulu at the age of 93. Born in Oakland, CA, Bill and his parents were displaced by the Depression and came to Hawaii in 1931, living first in Honolulu and later in Wahiawa. Bill attended the University of Hawaii, studying foreign languages, and joined the FBI upon graduation in 1941, working in various field offices throughout the U.S. He met the love of his life, Patty (Hall) on her first day reporting to duty as secretary at the Seattle FBI office, and soon thereafter they were married in Honolulu. Because of his fluency in Japanese, as well as his outstanding field work, he subsequently opened the original office of the Legal Attache in the American Embassy in Tokyo in 1954, covering not only Japan but also Taiwan, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Singapore and South Korea. Upon his retirement in 1976, Bill was honored to receive a number of awards and decorations, including the prestigious Third Class of the Order of the Sacred Treasure from the Emperor of Japan, for his contribution to cooperation between the U.S. and Japan in the field of law enforcement. Upon retirement, Bill’s dream was to return to Hawaii and trade liaison and reporting for “muddy, calloused hands.” He formed a development company and built homes in Wahiawa, doing much of the construction work himself. His next phase of “retirement” utilized his Far East contacts in challenging and enjoyable work and travel as a security consultant for several U.S. companies. Bill was a lifelong learner who loved languages and pondering the mysteries of life. He enjoyed carpentry, building furniture for his home and totem poles with his grandchildren. He loved playing bridge, reading mystery novels, and traveling with his beloved Patty. Bill truly lived his life according to the values that meant the most to him: loyalty, integrity and optimism in his work, his family and his friendships, and in fact, in all of his relationships. He was a loving and devoted son, husband and father, and a hero to his grandchildren. In addition to his wife Patty of 66 years, Bill is survived by his daughter Lynne and her husband Carl Franceschi of Needham, MA, his daughter in law Sandra Child of Chapel Hill, NC, his eight grandchildren, and one great grandchild. He was predeceased by his two sons, Michael and John. A family gathering in his memory will take place later this year in Honolulu.
