John was very generous with his time, skills and materials. He favored anything that involved electrical wires and tools. With his ready smile, cheerful outlook and wry sense of humor, he readily lent a hand to family and friends with home and auto projects and repairs. At Castle High School, he helped promote the robotics and the rifle teams and volunteered for is favorite event, the Thanksgiving Day Imu. His joy was seeing his students learn, try new things and develop life skills. Wanting to uphold his Chinese heritage, he was a member of the See Dai Doo Society where he served many years as Trustee and Chairman.
John is survived by his sisters: Kathy (Cliff) Yee, Norma (James) Acopan, Mary Ann (Dave) Underwood, Carol Ann (Don, deceased) Suppicich, Cousin Bill (Linda) Puleloa; and many nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his parents and sisters, Jeannette (John, deceased) Hanohano and Victoria Robinson.
