GEORGE MIYACHI
Public Affairs Officer, Federal Aviation Administration Passes Away
George Miyachi, Retired Public Affairs Officer, Pacific Region, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) passed away Monday Nov. 1, 2010 at age 81. His career began as a press photographer for the Hawaii Times, then as a photographer for the Naval Supply Center in Pearl Harbor. He is the recipient of Life Magazine’s press photo of the year award and his photos were widely published throughout his career. His press pass gained him access to photograph celebrities and political leaders, once walking and talking privately with President Truman on Coconut Island in Kaneohe Bay for over an hour. His photograph of the Iolani championship football team became Father Brays favorite and is showcased at Iolani. As a public affairs officer with the FAA he is credited in quelling a two year series of bomb threats against commercial jetliners by properly identifying the connection between Rod Serling’s movie “Doomsday Flight” and the rash of bomb threats during that period. George realized that when “Doomsday Flight” would play in a particular region, bomb threats would arise from the area the movie played. As a result of George’s insightful analysis the movie was pulled from national telecast and the bomb threats ceased. Turning planes around in mid-flight and searching those on the ground had cost the airlines millions of dollars over a two year period, not to mention the toll on terrified passengers. During his career with FAA, he handled the Air Traffic Controllers Strike for the Pacific Region under Ronald Reagan, speaking to the press on a on call basis for the entire crisis. He also assisted Jack Lord with the use of FAA facilities and control towers during the filming of the original “Hawaii 5-0″ television series.
He served as a deacon at Olivet Baptist Church, Honolulu and First Baptist Church, Pearl City and was not ashamed to call Jesus Christ his Savior. (He met his sweet heart Stella at Olivet Baptist Church.) Selected 1983 Federal Civilian Retiree of the year for quality work for over 19 years and for motivating high school dropouts.
He is survived by his wife Stella Miyachi (Hidano), his son Randall Miyachi, (wife Susan) and Georgina Christine Christian, (husband John), and Ginny Lynn (deceased). Three grandchildren, David Miyachi, Christina Christian and Heidi Christian. His brothers Henry Miyachi (wife Emi), James Miyachi (wife Hannah) and Harry Miyachi (wife Ethel) and his sister Molly Honda (deceased)(husband Torao (deceased).
George was an supporter of the University of Hawaii, Hawaii Baptist Academy and National Cancer Society. Served as an commissioned officer in the Hawaii Army National Guard in Public Affairs.
He loved his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, his country, his wife, his children & grandchildren, his family, church and community. Aloha Oe George we will miss you! Until we meet again!

EDGAR KAUHIWAHIWA PRATT, JR.

EDGAR KAUHIWAHIWA PRATT, JR.

Edgar “Joe” K. Pratt, Jr., age 57 was born to eternal life on October 14, 2010 in Honolulu. He is missed tremendously by many and will always be remembered as a loving and generous Husband, Dad, Papa, Brother, Uncle and friend.

Born in Honolulu, HI, to the late Edgar (Sr.) and Louise K. Pratt, Edgar was the third of seven children. Raised in Ka’alaea, he attended several schools on O’ahu including Wai’ahole Elementary and I’olani School. He was known as an outstanding athlete as well as a bright, young leader.

In 1971, he joined the military and was stationed in Italy, where he served his country as a national security officer providing support to US Army Garrison base in Vincenza.

After his military service, he returned to Hawai’i where he met the love of his life, the former Veronica Hipa. They married, had two beautiful children and settled in Kane’ohe where they shared so many great memories. This year, they would have celebrated 35 years of marriage.

In 1979, Edgar began a promising career at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard. He started as a frontline laborer, moved up the ranks to Union Representative then to Supervisor and finally retiring as a Project Quality Engineer. He dedicated almost 34 years of his life to the federal government as a civil servant.

In 1986, while still employed by Pearl Harbor, Edgar felt the need to serve his community so he enlisted in the Honolulu Police Department as a reserve police officer.
He was passionate about this work because it allowed him to be an active participant in his community.

Over the years, he celebrated several milestones including the welcoming of his four beautiful grandchildren. He loved spending time with family and friends, diving, golfing, backyard luau’s and trips to Vegas. He was a cultural leader in his own right who loved passing on his Native Hawaiian customs and traditions to the next generation.

Edgar’s great and gentle spirit was and will always remain larger than life. He was many things to many people, and to his family he was always their loving, steadfast “rock”.

He will be remembered for his courage, sheer determination, inner strength, quiet compassion and steadfast loyalty. His legacy of love, dedication and selfless service will live on forever through those he touched.

He is survived by his wife, Veronica, daughters, Tina Marie Freitas and Sandra Ann
Kau’ionalani, Hanai Son, Barry Castillo, grandchildren, Jina Kapua, Edgar Josia, Preston and Kaulana, brothers, Dennis, Randy (Aiko) and Craig (Cheryl), sisters, JoAnn Pratt-Morales of Bayamon, Puerto Rico, Geramie Pratt-Paglinawan (Daniel), Patricia Pratt-Holt of Killeen, Texas and numerous nephews, nieces, aunties, uncles and cousins.
