Wayne Charles Thiessen

Posted On January 17th, 2016 -

WAYNE CHARLES THIESSEN 1933-2015 Wayne Charles Thiessen, 82, a man of Christian faith, passed away on Christmas Day, December 25, 2015 surrounded by his loving family. He was a 48-year Honolulu, Hawaii Kai resident. Wayne was an international businessman and entrepreneur. He was also involved in politics. In Virginia, he ran on the Republican ticket for Congress; and ran for the offices of State Senate, Governor, and U.S. Senate in Hawaii. He was a long time and active member of the Hawaii Republican party. Born in 1933, in Fairbanks, Alaska to Jack and Ellen Thiessen, Wayne was raised in small mining towns throughout the western United States. He was the eldest of five children and graduated from Nevada City High School where he was the student body president and played on the varsity football team with his brother Derek. Wayne initially attended University of Washington where he played varsity football. He later transferred to the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and studied under a US Navy R.O.T.C. scholarship. He was a member of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity. He graduated in 1955 with two Bachelors of Science degrees in naval architecture/marine engineering and political science. It was at University of Michigan where he met the love of his life, Suzanne Reasoner, and they spent sixty wonderful years together. Upon graduation, he was commissioned as a U.S. Naval surface line officer. He and his wife Suzanne moved to Virginia for Wayne's assignment aboard the USS Cambria (APA-36) at the Norfolk Naval Base. After four years of service, he resigned from the Navy as a Lieutenant. Thereafter, he worked for the Newport News Shipbuilding & Dry Dock Company as an engineer from 1959 to 1967. He was on the engineering design teams for the world's first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier the USS Enterprise (CVN-65) and the USS Robert E. Lee (SSBN-601) nuclear-powered submarine. During the Williamsburg, Virginia years, Suzanne and Wayne raised their growing family, developed an international art gallery business, and Wayne also was a candidate for U.S. Congress. In 1967, Wayne was recruited to work for an engineering contractor at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard. He and his family left Virginia and put down roots in Hawaii. The Thiessens moved to Henry J. Kaiser's new development in Hawaii Kai, one of the first young families to move there in the 1960s. In 1970, he was appointed by the High Commissioner to the U.S. Interior Department Trust Territory - Micronesia to be Chief of Transportation for the years 1970-76. Moving his family to Micronesia, he began his service to the federal government. After spending many years in Micronesia, he became an entrepreneur and founded Transoceanic Navigation Company, Inc. (TONCO). TONCO shipped goods between the Micronesian islands. He expanded his business to Honolulu and also shipped goods from the West Coast throughout the Pacific and the Far East. Throughout his working career, he was also employed in Guam, Saudi Arabia, Washington, D.C., and the San Francisco Bay Area, but ultimately returned to Hawaii for semi-retirement. Wayne's abiding motto was "Keep the Faith" - as he instilled optimism, hard-work, uplifting humanity, the joy of athletics, and adventure in his children. His love of adventure took him all over the world for work projects. He also enjoyed swimming the rivers of the Sierra Nevada, the Chesapeake Bay, Micronesian seas, and the Waikiki Rough Water Swim competition. He was dearly loved by his wife Suzanne and their children: Michelle Aschwald (Howard) of San Rafael, CA; Kimberlee Miller (Richard) of Honolulu; Bradford Thiessen (Becky) of Honolulu; Douglas Thiessen (Pauline) of Irvine, CA; Tamara Brown (Chris) of Fresno, CA. and Patricia Halvorsen (Kit) of Honolulu. He is also survived by 19 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren. He is fondly remembered by his sister Jacquelyn Tennis of Olivet, MI and his brothers Brian Thiessen of Alamo, CA and Craig Thiessen of Nevada City, CA - as well as many wonderful cousins, nephews, nieces, and in-laws. His brother Derek and parents preceded him in death. The family will hold memorial services in March on Good Friday at Punchbowl National Cemetery and the Outrigger Canoe Club. Charitable donations may be given to The Arcadia Foundation, 1434 Punahou Street, Honolulu, HI 96822, which funds programs for the Kilohana Senior Enrichment Center of Niu Valley, in Honolulu, Hawaii.

SANTIAGO (SANDY) DACOSCOS BUNDA

Posted On January 17th, 2016 -

$nameSANTIAGO (SANDY) DACOSCOS BUNDA Sandy received his call on December 31, 2015 to join his maker and to be reunited with loved ones he had not seen in a long time. A couple days before he passed he asked if we had the "ticket". It was his way of telling the family that he was getting ready to be with his wife of 58 years, our mom, Esther. In the months and weeks prior to his departure, he was surrounded by family and friends who came to visit him at home and at Wahiawa General Hospital. Not once did he complain. Just as he fought in the Korean War, he fought for his life till the end. Sandy was born and raised at Helemano Camp 2 in Waialua on January 23, 1927. As a gifted athlete, his favorite pastime was practicing his basketball skills on the rich, red dirt court at Helemano. His routine was to make 100 free throws before dinner. He also practiced his aim by trying to knock down his choice of a tasty half-ripe mango by only throwing one rockyes; he ate no mango if he missed. After graduating from Waialua High School in 1944, he joined the U.S. Army to become a lifelong soldier, a drill instructor at Schofield, and an ROTC teacher at Leilehua High School for 7 years. We were told by many of his Army buddies that he had the uncanny ability to run backwards while his troops trudged their way running up road to Kolekole Pass. He left his mark at Leilehua by making an impact as a mentor to many of his ROTC students. After retirement from the Army in 1965, Sandy became very involved with the community serving many years as a Wahiawa Lions club member. He was a member of the Wahiawa Christian Church. The honorable, decorated Korean War soldier, the athlete that played against teams like the New York Yankees and the Harlem Globetrotters, the golfer who won the Hawaii Army Open, the mentor to his students, the best Dad to his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, the jokester, and an awesome singer..that is who Sandy was to all of us. We want to let him know that he did a great job being that kind, gentle, and compassionate person who everyone gravitated to. He was truly loved by all. He is survived by sons Robert (Gail), Sandy Jr. (Sue), Paul (Joycelyn), Mark (Kristi), and daughters Tonilyn Bunda and Sandilee (George) Minamishin. Brothers Frank, Alfred, Ronald, Carlos, and Douglas Bunda, and sisters Abelina Salado, and Nita Bayne. 18 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren. Services will be held at the Mililani Memorial & Mortuary Park, Makai Chapel, on January 23, 2016. Visitation: from 5pm to 6pm. Services: 6pm to 7pm.

JEAN A. CULBERTSON

Posted On January 12th, 2016 -

JEAN A. CULBERTSON Jean Alexander Culbertson passed away November 29, 2015, in Palo Alto, California, at the age of 92. Jean was born in Berkeley, California, in 1923, to Edith and DeWitt Alexander, from New Jersey and Hawaii, respectively. Jean went to Anna Heads School in Berkeley and Smith College in North Hampton, Massachusetts, where she graduated in 1944. Jean met her husband, Tom, in the San Francisco Bay Area after the conclusion of his World War II service in the Navy. They married in 1946 and bought a home in Berkeley after living a short time in Pasadena. Son Tom (III) was born in 1949, followed by Bruce in 1951. In 1953, they moved to a home in Orinda, California, designed by Tom, who was an architect. Two more children, Cathy and Sandy, followed in 1954 and 1961; sadly, both were developmentally disabled and required institutionalization for most of their lives. In addition to raising their family and volunteering in the boys' schools, Jean contributed many hours to the Association for Retarded Children. She also found time for tennis and golf, and spent many fun weekends boating with her family. Following Bruce's graduation from high school in 1969, Jean and Tom realized their decades long dream and moved to Honolulu, where Tom continued to practice architecture for close to two more decades. Jean immersed herself in civic and volunteer activities, contributing thousands of hours to the betterment of the community. Among the organizations she served were the Garden Club, the Hawaiian Mission Children's Society, the Alzheimer's Association (including time on the boards of those organizations), Holy Nativity Episcopal Church, and the Association for Retarded Citizens. Jean's greatest passion, though, was art, and she was a docent at the Honolulu Academy of Arts (now the Honolulu Art Museum) for 35 years. She shared her love of art with tens of thousands of school children, leading them through the museum's wonderful collections. Jean played tennis and paddle tennis well into her 80s. She and Tom loved to sail together (belonging to Waikiki and Kaneohe Yacht Clubs) and travel together, taking many interesting trips all over the world. A particularly memorable one was a trip to Tahiti they organized for members of Tom's college class. Jean continued to travel, both alone and with friends and family, after Tom died in 1993. Jean left Hawaii reluctantly but at her own initiative, moving to Palo Alto in early 2012 to be closer to her sons. Jean is survived by son Tom, daughter-in-law BruceAnn, and grandchildren Colleen and Bruce, in Spokane; by son Bruce in Palo Alto; and daughter Cathy who lives at Leahi Hospital in Honolulu. Son Sandy preceded her in death by several weeks last fall. In Hawaii, she is also survived by first cousin (by marriage) Betty Alexander and first cousins once removed Mary Ann Lentz (Honolulu), Lucy Alexander (Honolulu), Bo Alexander (Kailua) and David Alexander (Kekaha). A memorial service will be held Monday January 25 at the Outrigger Canoe Club at 8:00AM, followed by a scattering of ashes at sea. Also remembered will be Sandy. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Hawaiian Mission Houses Museum, the Honolulu Museum of Art, and the Aloha Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association.

FRANCISCO (FRANK) OGO MENDIOLA BORJA Francisco (Frank) Ogo Mendiola Borja of Honolulu, Hawaii passed peacefully at home on Thanksgiving Day (November 26, 2015). He was lovingly cared for by his family while battling his illness. Frank was born in Merizo, Guam on November 23, 1937. He was predeceased by his parents, Juan Mendiola Borja and Maria Tenorio Ogo, as well as his older and only brother Jesus Borja. Frank is survived by his wife, Hilda Herrera Borja, his twin sons Gil and John Borja, daughter-in-law Donna Felixberto Borja, as well as several in-laws and relatives on Oahu, Hawaii, Guam and the Mainland USA. We will always remember Frank as a proud, tough, strong and determined Chamorro with the softest heart. As an orphan, Frank was a self-made man of sorts who basically matured as a hard-working, self-reliant individual. A giver of his time and resources --- almost to a fault--- he never bragged about his Good Samaritan gestures. To him, service to others is second-nature and he did not make a big deal about it. His mantra had been: "You're happy; am happy. Glad I could help". A well-spoken and proud Sailor and Vietnam Era Veteran, he retired as a Chief Petty Officer in the US Navy and subsequently worked as a Guard Officer for the Naval Station, Pearl Harbor Hawaii. A memorial service will be held on 15 January 2016 (Friday) @ 5:30 pm at Mililani Memorial Park & Mortuary (Mauka Chapel), Ka Uka Boulevard, Waipahu Hawaii 96797. Inurnment of Frank's cremains will be held on 19 January 2016 (Tuesday) @ 9:30 am at the National Cemetery of the Pacific - Punchbowl. Burial at Sea (spreading part of Franks' ashes at sea, per his wishes (Date to be determined).
