Posted On July 23rd, 2016 -

$nameALICIA KWON YING GOO KAM - A Legacy 1926-2016 Alicia Kwon Ying Goo Kam lived the American dream. Born in Peru on April 25th 1926, she moved to China and grew up in the tumultuous years during World War II. After the war, she married Raymond S.H. Kam and moved to Honolulu. In 1949 with an enterprising spirit, Alicia and Raymond purchased an old wooden store on Mokauea Street; although learning a new language, new ways, and starting up their family, through hard work, a willingness to listen to their customers, and trying new things, they grew Alicia's Market into a thriving Mom and Pop Store; the old wooden building was knocked down, and after acquiring the adjacent properties, they constructed the current brick building at the corner of Mokauea and Democrat Street. The foundation of their success was" friendly customer service, happy regular customers, and good food." Alicia and Raymond enjoyed greeting their customers, and loved the fact that customers called her Popo, the Chinese equivalent of grandma. Alicia's market has specialized in home-cooked style foods, such as roast beef, char siu, boiled peanuts, seasoned steaks, and various varieties of poke. The success of Alicia's Market is illustrated by their large customer base, and being featured in newsclips such as "Cheap Eats", "You Da Kine", and the nationally syndicated "Bizarre Foods". Her son, Leonard and his wife (Geri) currently maintain and grow the family tradition at Alicia's Market, with other members of Alicia's family. In her latter years, Alicia enjoyed traveling the world. She was able to live her dreams of cruising with her children and grandchildren to Alaska, the Carribean, and the New England Coast. But the highlight was her treating her children and grandchildren to see her homeland, China, after her 80th birthday, while China was preparing to showcase itself for the Olympics. She is survived by her son, Leonard (Geri), and five daughters: Cynthia Mori, Laureen (Sanford) Chu, Kareen (Russell) Mau, Raynette (Warren) Dang, and June (Michael) Chow, 13 grandchildren, and 7 great grandchildren. Visitation: 10:00 am July 26 at Borthwick Mortuary, Services: 11:am, Burial: 2:00 pm at Hawaii State Veterans Cemetery, Kaneohe.
