KENNETH GARY WOOD

Posted On February 8th, 2015 -

$nameKENNETH GARY WOOD Kenneth Gary Wood lost his battle with Leukemia and a broken heart just before midnight, January 16th 2015. His last hours were spent surrounded by his family who adored him dearly. Born June 30, 1939 in Copiague, New York he graduated from Amityville Memorial High School, New York. 1n 1958 enlisted as a marine, Ken was stationed at Kaneohe Marine Air Corp station on Oahu, Hawaii. On a weekend break, he met my beloved mother Julia Kapohakimohewa at Makapuu beach and from that moment he enjoyed a beautiful marriage of 50 years until she passed away May 2011. My father LOVED playing many sports (baseball, football and basketball) in his younger years and then enjoyed competitive softball and tennis with his buddies when he lived in Hawaii. From these weekly battles, he maintained friendships that lasted decades even after he couldn’t hit the court or links anymore. He shared so many stories and fond memories about his group of friends. He truly missed them dearly when we had to move him to Dallas. Ken was an incredible salesperson. The memory that I will hold dearest to me when I think of his business dealings was not all the awards he won as a top salesman year after year, but all of his clients who were loyal to him for so many years. When he retired the phrase they all shared with me was “your dad had incredible integrity”. Hats off to you dad for doing things the right way. Survived by his son Derek, Daughter-in-law Tammy, Grandchildren Connor, Tyler, Kenneth and Jason. Sister Bobbi and brothers Robert, Donald and immediate family Diane and Ron. Dad you were an incredible father, husband and mentor I am so honored to be your son. Words could never describe how much we miss you and forever in our hearts, A hui hou kakou.

DR. THOMAS HIROSHI TERUYA

Posted On February 8th, 2015 -

$nameDR. THOMAS HIROSHI TERUYA March 5, 1936 – January 21, 2015 Thomas Hiroshi Teruya, M.D., 78, of Honolulu, passed away on January 21, 2015, at Queen’s Medical Center. Born in Honolulu, in 1936, to Yoken and Nancy (Ushi) Teruya, Tom was the eighth of nine children. He grew up working on his family’s fruit and vegetable farms in Kailua and Waianae. Wanting to get the best education he could, he enrolled at Iolani School in 7th grade. He graduated with honors and left Hawaii to attend Kenyon College in Ohio. Tom was so homesick for Hawaii, that he decided to be a doctor so he could come home and practice. He graduated from Hahnemann Medical College in Pennsylvania, specializing in obstetrics and gynecology. He interned at Queen’s Medical Center in Honolulu, and completed his residency at Los Angeles County General Hospital. After serving two years in the U.S. Navy Medical Corps, he returned to Hawaii to begin his private practice. He chose obstetrics because he took pride in bringing new life into the world. In 1969, Tom joined the Honolulu Medical Group. Five years later, he joined a private practice, which has thrived and now includes six doctors. He enjoyed admitting privileges at Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children and The Queen’s Medical Center, where he was known by patients and staffers for his expertise and comforting bed-side manner. In 1990, he humbly received the Ke Kauka Po’okela (The Outstanding Physician) Award from Queen’s. Tom was dedicated to providing the best care and most current treatments and continued his education by participating in seminars and conferences. He was a member of The American Medical Association and The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. The well-being of his patients was the focus of his professional life for over 45 years. He made himself available to them 24 hours a day, and wouldn’t rest until he knew they were cared for. Several years ago, he scaled back his practice and concentrated on gynecology. He was able to spend more time at the golf course, often golfing four times a week at Waialae Country Club. He was an avid sports fan and regularly attended University of Hawaii football and volleyball games. Most importantly, he traveled several times a year to visit his grandchildren in California. Nothing made Tom happier than spending time playing games with them. He loved being able to watch them practice karate and play hockey, soccer, baseball. He was a proud “Papa” who always shared how pleased he was with his grandchildren’s accomplishments. He is survived by his wife, Margie; son Dr. Theodore; daughter Mia (Stephen Odell); brothers Minoru (Kay), William (Mitsue) and Paul; sisters Lillian Kamisato and Betsy Oshiro (Wally); and three beloved grandchildren, Trevor Odell (15), Trent Teruya (10) and Chloe Odell (8). He was preceded in death by daughter, Tracey. A service celebrating Tom’s life will be held at Nuuanu Memorial Park & Mortuary-East Chapel on Sunday, February 15th. Visitation begins at 2:30 p.m. Service begins at 4 p.m. Aloha attire is welcome. Private inurnment on Monday, February 16th. *- Dr. Teruya was a U.S. Navy Veteran

$nameETHEL OH SPURLIN February 6, 1922 – October 16, 2014 Ethel Soon Nae Oh Spurlin, our favorite aunt, would have been 93 years old today February 6, 2015, but decided instead to let nature take its course after receiving a diagnosis of liver cancer five weeks before her passing October 16, 2014, in her home in Mililani. She chose hospice care and died peacefully with her beloved Teddy and Suzy at her feet and surrounded by her family. Daughter of Kuk Young Oh, who emigrated from Pyongyang, Korea, and Mary Kim, Ethel outlived her four siblings, Peter Oh, Elaine Yap Kalilimoku, Charles Oh and Rachel Shiley Wade. Four major surgeries including open heart surgery, numerous minor procedures and at least half a dozen chronic conditions didn’t prevent her from being engaging and vivacious throughout life. She was feisty to the end. She graduated from McKinley High School in 1940 but like many of her generation, didn’t continue college due to war and instead accepted a clerical job at Hickam. While working at Bellows Field in the Quarter Master’s Office she met future husband Steve Arthur Spurlin, a navy officer. They were married in 1943 by the chaplain of St. Louis College which at the time was being used as a military hospital. Ethel lived and raised children in Guam for many years in connection with her husband’s work as a construction superintendent for the government in the Pacific area. Back in Honolulu she obtained work with Sears, Roebuck, located first on Young and Beretania Streets and later headquartered in the Ala Moana Center. She rose in the ranks to become the only Executive Secretary to the Regional Buyer attached to the LA Regional Buying Office, a position she held until her retirement in 1985. She also raised, trained and showed dogs. Her cairn terrier Angus McDuff was the only dog in Hawaii to achieve the highest certification of Utility Dog Obedience. She was an African Violet fancier and an active member and officer of the African Violet Society of Hawaii, traveling often to conventions. And with her husband she raised, collected and exhibited orchids, succulents, and shells. Ethel is survived by three sons Steve Arthur Spurlin Jr. (Ann), Peter Don Spurlin (Eden) and Edward Robert Spurlin (Dawn); grandchildren Michael Frierson, Hali A. Miller and Maile A.Spurlin; and great grandchildren Luke Frierson and Tristan and Caleb Miller. Also surviving are nieces Carolyn Ballou and Sandra Gonsalves and nephew Hiram Oh and grand niece Becky Oh, who were close to her and provided much of the assistance she needed toward the end. Other nieces and nephews, the children of her siblings survive her. No services were held at her request. Donations in her memory may be made to the Hawaiian Humane Society or St, Francis Hospice.
