PATRICK LLOYD SHAW Patrick Lloyd Shaw was born in Guatemala City, Guatemala, to parents employed there in the U.S. Foreign Service. He lived with his parents and his older sister in Belgium, Paraguay, Indonesia, Iran, Japan, Kenya, Egypt, and graduated from high school in Bolivia. After serving 3 years in the US Army, he obtained degrees in East Asian Studies and Journalism from the University of Hawaii graduating with honors. He worked for one year in Japan before his marriage to Jodi Toguchi and for an additional two years when he and his wife both taught English there. Pat held a number of jobs in which he utilized his Japanese speaking skills in Honolulu and then in financial services on the mainland, and since 2006 has been the Hawaii representative of the cruise ship association. Pat passed away peacefully last week at home surrounded by friends and family. He is survived by his wife of 19 years, Jodi; his daughter, Lauren; his parents Oliver and Janet (Yara) Shaw of Albuquerque; his sister, Michelle Crockett and her family (Robert, Jenna & Hayli) of Arvada, Colorado; parents-in-law, Charles and Elaine Toguchi of Kaneohe; grandmother-in-law, Misao Asato; and brother-in-law, Ryan Toguchi and his family (Sonia & Taryn) of Seattle, Washington.

Pat had a passion for music, basketball, fantasy football, thrill-seeking like sky diving and bungee jumping, and especially supporting his beloved Lauren in all her activities. No matter how tired or exhausted Pat felt, he willed himself to attend as many of Lauren’s soccer games, performances, and school activities that he could. He was kind, charismatic, thoughtful, funny, and incredibly generous to all those whose lives he touched. Pat battled pancreatic cancer bravely for twenty-two months with the support of “Pat’s Posse,” and he greatly inspired those he knew with the dignity, grace, and integrity he displayed through it all.

JAMES KIICHI TSUYA

Posted On July 19th, 2013 -

JAMES KIICHI TSUYA James Kiichi Tsuya passed away peacefully early Monday morning, July 15th, in his home in Honolulu, surrounded by his loving family. He was 89 years old. James was born and raised on Lihu’e Plantation on the Island of Kaua’i, the youngest of four children of Itsuta and Kinu Tsuya. James was among the replacement troops of the 442nd Infantry Regiment after the storied unit sustained heavy losses in the fierce fighting of World War II. After his honorable discharge from the Army, he attended technical schools on the GI Bill in Chicago, Illinois, and Hartford, Connecticut. In 1950, James married the love of his life, the former Matsue Sakamoto of Honokowai, Maui, a graduate of Lahainaluna high school. The newly-weds initially settled on the Island of Kaua’i, where three of their four daughters were born. In 1957, the family moved to Honokowai and James was sent to the Marshall Islands and Greenland where he worked on government projects for several years. His motivation for leaving Hawaii to work for such long periods of time was to earn and save enough money to buy a home in Honolulu and send each of his four daughters to college. He accomplished these goals, with all four daughters graduating from college and obtaining graduate degrees in their respective fields of study. James was a dreamer and visionary, beloved by all who met him. He is survived by wife Matsue, daughters Avis Tsuya, Liane Magelssen, Deon Rohlfing, and Lois Lloyd, brother Roy Tsuya, 13 grandchildren, and 9 great-grandchildren. Visitation is scheduled for 9 a.m. Monday, July 22, at the Kaimuki-Kahala Chapel of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, with a memorial service at 10 a.m. A private burial will be held at a later date.

David R. Thorne

Posted On July 18th, 2013 -

DAVID R. THORNE 82, of Kailua creator of the comic strip Thorney’s Zoo, educator for the D.O.E. and UH, and well known to his peers as the “Yoda of Hawaii Cartooning” for his mentorship of local cartoonists, passed away last year on July 22, 2012 due to a stroke. Dave was born and raised in Kalamazoo, Michigan where he attended Western Michigan University and later moved on to Pasadena City College in California. After serving a hitch in the Coast Guard, he then went to the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee where he received his B.S. in Art Education in 1958. In 1961 he attended Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles. Dave and his family came to Hawaii in December, of 1961 for a New Year’s Celebration and after just 3 days he decided to stay in Paradise (as he would often say). Dave went back to LA to finish school, then in 1962 he got a job teaching art at Campbell High School. In 1966 he became a Media Specialist with the Department of Education until his retirement in 1985. He used his skills at putting ideas and concepts in a humorous fashion into the designing of teaching materials, and for the two decades plus that he worked for the DOE, almost every classroom in the state had a drawing or two of his. He gave several workshops throughout Hawaii, as well as in Micronesia and Samoa. Before retiring from the DOE, Dave became a lecturer in UH Manoa’s College of Continuing Education from 1976 to 2001 teaching basic cartooning. He also worked on books with social impact. He collaborated on an AIDS awareness comic book for use in Japan; cartoon strips promoting the mainstreaming of the deaf (he was clinically deaf himself) and for Reading Literacy, as well as Non-source Pollution. His Apoha fish can still be found in the concrete on many of Hawaii’s bridges and storm drains that lead to the ocean. Finally in 2007, his dream came true in his own bi-weekly newspaper comic strip, Thorney’s Zoo, which appeared in the Star-Advertiser until illness struck in the fall of 2011. Surviving are: His wife of 52 years, Lorraine, two sons, Mitchell and Randall, a daughter and son-in-law, Kelly and Ivan Paik, three grandchildren, Cameron, Carissa, and Kalani, and numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews. Dave’s Celebration of Life will be Saturday, July 27th at Bay View Golf Park in Kaneohe. Visitation will start at 9:30 a.m., with service at 10:30.
