Chikara “Chik” Hirayama

Posted On July 20th, 2017 -

age 93, of Kaunakakai, HI, passed away on July 12, 2017. He is survived by his wife of 61 years, Kay K. Hirayama, and his five children and six grandchildren: Leila Watson (Robert) and Akira and Lili Kay, Fred Iwa Hirayama, Kimo Chikami Hirayama (Lisa) and Kaichi and Kian, Lincoln Hirayama (Shelley) and Keenan and Jakob, and Lynne Hirayama. He is survived by three generations of nieces and nephews. He is survived also by hundreds of friends and companions with whom he shared stories, wisdom, fish and a glass of wine. He is preceded in death by his parents Tsunehiko and Seki Hirayama, his brothers, Chikami and Yasoshi Hirayama, and his sisters Fuyuko Kamei, Misae Tomimoto, Setsue Yamashita, and Matsuko Tamura. At times in his life, Chik had been a pig farmer, glass chemist, Molokai farmer, fisherman, game hunter, writer, winemaker, PTA president, chief luau caterer, artisan, political commentator, philosopher, and always, a son, father, grandfather, uncle and husband. He prided himself on his wisdom cultivated over a lifetime and shared it by delivering one-liners to his children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, and anyone else who would stop in at the house. He reveled in everything that involved tramping through woods and water, especially with children in tow. He believed in the strength of family ties and was so proud that his large and extended family have always loved each other and kept so close. While strict and at times critical of his children's choices, he was always proud of them. He often said that hisgreatest achievement was raising his five children to be happy, independent, educated, and productive adults, and that the single best and luckiest moment in all his life was meeting and marrying Kay. Chik grew up the son of Japanese immigrants and learned early that an education and hard work were keys to a successful career. He was awarded a Ph.D. in chemistry and worked as a research chemist for Westinghouse with lasers and developing specialty glasses still used today, and earned over 30 patents. However, he abhorred the idea that success should be gauged by achievement plaques, money and promotions, and was doggedly determined that his life would be most notable for teaching his children how to fly fish for trout in small Pennsylvania streams, gathering the family together as often as possible, smoking the catch of the day from the ocean and mountains, hand-carving the most beautiful wood bowls, and being happy. His life was joyous and full. A private ceremony to scatter his ashes according to his wishes will be held in the future. Arrangements Provided By: NUUANU MEMORIAL PARK & MORTUARY LLC

Margo Armitage Morgan

Posted On July 19th, 2017 -

Margo Morgan slipped away quietly on June 22, 2017. She was never one to make splashy entrances or exits. At best, she was even ambivalent about having an obituary written. Certainly she would never 'toot her own horn'. So this is for those left behind who will appreciate the notice and enjoy the memories. Family and Children were at the top of her priority list. Children included not just her own, but all of their friends. She was always there for track meets, swim meets, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, class picnics, Punahou Carnival, and countless other events. She was the one attending all of the swim meets and oftentimes providing rides home for those parents who knew if they couldn't make it, Margo would be there. How did 13 of you manage to squeeze into the Volkswagen Bug? To her quilting friends, you appreciated both her volume of work and the meticulous hand stitching that went into every quilt - over 30 Hawaiian quilts, and more than 50 quilts in all. From her perspective, she just kept her hands busy. Most of her hiking and adventuring friends have gone on before, but what times they had - hiking all over the islands and abroad. There were years spent volunteering at the Bishop Museum and Iolani Palace because she loved history. There were her friends in the Hawaiian history reading group she helped organize - 21 years, a book a month. There were also many years spent playing ukulele a couple of times a week at Queen Emma's Summer Palace, not because she fancied herself a musician, but because she loved music, and it was fun to play with friends. Years spent with the Garden Club because she loved plants. And there was the Apua Group. At the core were Margo and 9 of her Punahou classmates. They got together again in the aftermath of WWII, married, had kids, and stayed together for the rest of their lives, laughing, teasing, adventuring and living life. She said it best, "I've done everything I wanted to do, and have lived a great life". Thank you, Mom, for everything! A 'talk story' will be held at 52 Robinson Lane, August 19, 2017 from 3:00 to 5:00pm. No flowers, donations to Hospice Hawaii, Historic Hawaii Foundation, or Punahou School.

KIRK MATTHEWSAfter a romantic kiss with his wife of 33 years, Linda Coble, Kirk Matthews lost his fight with lung cancer one year ago today. Kirk was a beloved husband, father, family man, humorous friend, and trusted TV anchorman, who engaged Hawaii with his smile, professionalism, volunteerism, and sincere personality. Instead of a funeral, he had a party after diagnosis, so he could hug hundreds of friends and family Aloha. And it was his choice to serve the community one more time by loaning his body to the John A Burns School of Medicine students, who referred to him as 'their teacher'. As Kirk would always say at the end of his newscasts, "Take Care of Each Other".
