PAUL MICHEL “MICKEY” THIELEN

Posted On May 1st, 2016 -

PAUL MICHEL "MICKEY" THIELEN July 30, 1931 April 12, 2016 left us after living a full life. He was first and foremost a family man. A wonderful husband to his wife, Cynthia, and an amazing father to his children. His grandchildren knew their "Pomper" as a mischievous, reliable and caring figure. Mickey believed his greatest legacy was his family, especially his four children. In them he instilled an irreverent sense of humor to carry them through life's ups and downs, a strong work ethic, entrepreneurial spirit, and a responsibility to care for others. He took great joy in Cynthia's legislative accomplishments, proudly driving an SUV holding scores of yard signs that he delivered. Mickey was a well-known contractor, serious about the quality of his work, but humorously named his company "Mouse Builders." He made a significant mark on Honolulu, particularly in the Chinatown-Downtown area. He is best known for the national Renaissance Award-winning restoration of the Stagenwald Building; construction and operation of Mauna Kea Marketplace. He was a businessman-mentor, who provided an environment where people took pride in their work and were encouraged to grow their careers. Mickey graduated from Claremont Men's College (now Claremont-McKenna), Senior Class President, 1953; was a 40-year member of the Lanikai "Park Priques" volleyball hui; and was always ready to take on the establishment, such as fighting the State to keep his restaurant name "The Bank," which he opened in the old Bishop Street Territorial Savings Bank. The most inspirational aspects of Mickey's life are not the structures he built or the businesses he started. They are the people he inspired, the example he set, and the way he challenged everyone to be the best they could be. He is survived by his wife, Cynthia, four children, Dave, Peter Laura and Greg, 10 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. Pictures and testiments to Mickeys life can be found at http://www.mickeythielen.com/ In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in memory of Mickey Thielen to the Windward YMCA Endowment Fund. A celebration of Life will be held Sunday, May 22, 2016 at MidPacific Country Club, 11:00-2:30, with remarks from 11:30-12:00.

Sumiko was a long-time resident of Laupahoehoe before moving to California a few years after the loss of her husband Kazuo in 1988, to be closer to her family. Sumiko was a strong-willed, hard-working, and courageous woman. As a mother, she stressed the importance of a good education to her children. Not having completed high school due to her family's limited resources, it was her dream come true to see each of her children graduate from college and be successful in their chosen professions. Her life truly revolved around her grandchildren, as they brought so much joy into her life and made her proud with all they have accomplished. One of her biggest joys was being the Matron of Honor at her granddaughter's wedding. She beamed with joy as she walked down the aisle on the arm of her grandson-in-law. Sumiko is survived by sons Warren (Raynette) and Nelson; daughters Sharon (Brad) Kimura, and Lee Ann (Mark) Cunningham.

Seymour loved to travel; strangers became his life-long friends and he showed us what it meant to be generous with each other. He kept notebooks for years, filled with prayer lists and devotionals; he was the Lord's faithful servant in so many ways. When we think of Seymour now, we'll remember his stories, his unbounded friendliness, how much love he gave us and that incredible smile. How easy it was to love him.

GEORGIANA “Georgie” CLARK

GEORGIANA GEORGIE CLARK October 28, 1934 - March 2, 2016 Georgiana Clark, President and Chairman of the Board of Roaring Camp Railroads, in Felton, CA, passed away on March 2, 2016, at the age of 81. "Georgie" Clark, as she was known, left a legacy of innovation, creativity and tenacity, resulting in Roaring Camp Railroads being one of Northern California's premier tourism destinations and attractions. Born in Hawaii, she was the third daughter of noted late Hawaiian composer, entertainer and cultural practitioner, Lei Collins, and the late Louis Collins Sr. Georgie graduated from St. Andrew's Priory and attended the University of Hawaii. While working for Aloha Airlines as Chief Stewardess, she met her future husband F. Norman Clark. They married shortly after and she left the islands to make Felton, California her new home. Alongside Norman, Georgie took off in a new direction in tourism, driven by a passion for history which centered around Norman's love of historic steam locomotives, and the preservation of old growth Redwood forests. Roaring Camp Railroads takes visitors from the old growth redwood forests, to the shores of the Monterey Bay, allowing visitors a step back in time to the 1880's. Norman Clark passed away unexpectedly in December of 1985 and shortly after Georgie assumed the position of CEO and chairman of the board for the railroads. She took on her new roles with an entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to expanding Norman's vision, while becoming an influential leader in the travel and tour industry. Georgie accomplished this while raising her three daughters, Chemene, Melani Lei and Kapiolani. As CEO, Georgie expanded Roaring Camp's popularity by hosting annual events like the historic Civil War and Mountain Men re-enactments and even a yearly visit from Thomas the Tank Engine. Georgie was a respected public figure in the community and was recognized as a strong executive leader with a contagious smile who gave generously to those in need. Her many accomplishments have been recognized by the California tourism industry. She was honored with the San Lorenzo Valley Business Woman of the Year Award, The California Travel Industry's Lifetime Achievement Award, the National Tour Association's Pioneer Award and on February 4th, U.S. Congressman Sam Farr declared Thursday, February 4th Georgiana P Clark Day in honor of her dedication and lifetime commitment to the US Tourism Industry. On this day the speaker of the house recognized Georgie and the flag was flown over the U.S. Capitol in dedication to her. A celebration of her life was held on April 4, 2016, at Roaring Camp's Bret Harte Hall, Felton, CA. An estimated 500 people were in attendance. In recognition of her love for her native land, Hawaiian dress, music, dance and food were the theme of the gathering. Attendees enjoyed a train ride while sharing fond memories of Georgie. On May 7, 2016, Georgie's ashes, in a "private family gathering," will be scattered in the blue waters off Ke'ei Beach, Kona, Hawaii. A place of her childhood that she returned on her yearly trips, a place that restored her and nurtured her. She is survived by daughters: Chemene Paikike (David) Hubbard, Melani Clark (Domenico Anatrone) and Catherine Kapiolani (Rob) Thorsen. Grandchildren: Parker James Kamakani Ku Mai Kalani Thorsen, Kaden George Kamakana Hubbard, Kassidy Grace Ka Pualani li`ili`i Thorsen. Siblings: John K. (Connie) Collins, Winona Wong, Fanny (Sam) AuHoy, Ernesta (Frank) Masagatani, and Brother-In-Law Bruce W. (Karyl) Clark. Georgiana will be missed.
