ANTHONY BLAIR COSTA

Posted On September 17th, 2017 -

ANTHONY BLAIR COSTADecember 12, 1958 - August 17, 2017 Anthony Blair Costa, better known as "Tony" to family and friends, a passionate protector of rights for Hawaii's near shore fishing community, died on August 17, 2017 after a brief battle with cancer. He was 58. Born and raised in Hawaii, Tony's personal and professional life revolved around the ocean. He grew up surfing, fishing and diving offshore of Niu, developing a love of the ocean at an early age. Tony loved the area and bought a house in Niu, not far from the family home in which he was raised. Tony's other great love was his family, and he was resolute in caring for his children - daughters, 14-year-old Laura Isabella Costa and 12-year-old Sophia Jolie Costa. A member of the Class of 1977 at Punahou School, Tony completed a work-study program in tropical horticulture and botany at the Pacific Tropical Botanical Garden at Lawai, Kauai, from 1977 to 1978. A former part-time commercial fisherman, Tony joined Pacific Ocean Producers in 1993. As Director of Foreign Sales, Tony developed business opportunities for POP in American Samoa, Samoa, Taiwan, Hong Kong and South Korea. Tony also had a strong entrepreneurial streak and was the owner of Hawaii Fresh, LLC, an import-export company that traded in vanilla. He worked with suppliers in Tahiti, Tonga and Papua New Guinea. In addition to his professional life, Tony became a tenacious proponent of community causes that touched his heart. He was a familiar sight at the State Capitol, where he was spokesperson for Hawaii Nearshore Fishermen from 1998 to 2016. He was a well-known advocate of the right of local fishermen to fish near shore waters. Tony was also instrumental in the passage of legislation in 2010 that prevents the sale of publicly-owned Hawaiian fishponds statewide. His aim was to protect and restore historic Kalauha'iha'i, which is located in Niu. He recognized the significance of restoring subterranean freshwater flows and their relationship to healthy coastal fisheries. The legislative victory made possible the ongoing community stewardship and educational programs of the Maunalua Fishpond Heritage Center. Among the other organizations Tony supported were Punahou School, the Parish of St. Clement, and the Boys & Girls Club of Honolulu. Tony's interests also included membership in the Hawaii Potters' Guild, and a long-time passion for family genealogy. Tony Costa was born in Honolulu on December 12, 1958. He is survived by his daughters Laura Isabella Costa and Sophie Jolie Costa; his mother, Mazeppa King Costa; sister, Monte Costa; brother, Page Costa of Los Angeles, California; niece Lucella Costa of Los Angeles; and aunt, Virginia A. King of Sebastian, Florida. His father, Robert O. Costa, died on February 18, 1989. Tony was formerly married to Diana Cristina Villa. Family and friends are invited to A Celebration of the Life of Anthony Blair Costa on October 7, 2017 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon at the Parish of St. Clement, 1515 Wilder Avenue, Honolulu, Hawaii.

JEANNINE HOYT BENDIX

Posted On September 15th, 2017 -

JEANNINE HOYT BENDIXJeannine Bendix passed away at her home in Portland, Oregon on August 5th after a brief, brave battle with cancer. She will be remembered for her unflagging positivity, her encouraging and inquisitive nature, her spiritual faith, her fun-loving sense of humor, her abundant generosity, and her bright pink lipstick! Jeannine Frances Hoyt was born to Francis Victor and Thelma Rucker Hoyt on March 25, 1931 in Tacoma, Washington where she grew up as an adored only child. Jeannine met her high school sweetheart and future husband, Bud Bendix, when they were sophomores at Clover Park High School. A standout student at Washington State University, Jeannine graduated Magna Cum Laude, Phi Beta Kappa, with a BA degree in Education. She served as President of the Kappa Alpha Theta sorority, News Editor for the Evergreen, and was voted as one of the "Big Ten" seniors of the WSU class of 1953. After graduating from college, Jeannine and Bud were married and lived in New Jersey, the Phillippines and Washington State while he served as an Army officer. In 1958 they adventured to Hawaii where Bud signed on as a reporter with the Honolulu Advertiser and Jeannine became a teacher at Punahou School, a career that spanned five decades, impacting thousands of students. Their son Mark was born in 1960, followed by daughter Diana in 1963. Jeannine's motherly affection extended to her children's friends, many of whom considered "Mom B" a second mom. She treasured her close friends who were like sisters to her. She also had many four-legged friends and the Bendix household was always chock full of pets of all varieties. She was especially proud when her cocker spaniel "Sunny" became a Champion. Jeannine was admired by her peers as a master teacher with an insightful and inspirational style of teaching to the head and the heart of her students. "Mrs. B" was adored by her 4th graders, many of whom kept in touch and returned to visit her long after they graduated. Following her retirement from Punahou in 1993, she continued to tutor, specializing in the treatment of dyslexia. Her lifelong passion for reading and children's literature led to her appointment by two governors to serve on the Hawaii State Library Commission. Jeannine had a heart for service and was active with a capital A! She remained involved with her Kappa Alpha Theta alumni group, she was a member of P.E.O., and she enjoyed playing tennis, golf and duplicate bridge. She was also an avid sports fan following the NBA, Ice Skating, UH Wahine Volleyball, and her WSU Cougars. Travel highlights included: Europe, China and Scandinavia. She loved everything French including her favorite city, Paris. As "Tutu" to her grandchildren Peik and Lani, she relished her role as a grandmother, piling on the love and traveling to the mainland often to visit her "cubs," cheering them on at soccer games, ski races and school performances. 10 years ago, Jeannine and Bud moved from Hawaii to Portland, Oregon to be closer to their family. Jeannine's optimism and joie de vivre were contagious and she will be missed by all who were lucky enough to have experienced her faithful and unconditional love. Jeannine joins her beloved Bud who passed away last November. She is survived by her son Mark (Lynn) Bendix of Portland, OR, daughter Diana Bendix Wahl, grandson Peik Wahl, granddaughter Lani Wahl, all of Sandpoint, ID, brother-in-law and sister-in law Fred & Gail Bendix of Bellevue, WA, a host of other loving family members and long-time friends, and her precious kitty Pua. A celebration of life will be held, and her ashes scattered, in Hawaii at a later date. Donations may be made in her name to the Hawaiian Humane Society.
