The following comments regarding the recent broken wands was sent in by Mike Lynch:
On Bob Chang: The Magicians of Hawaii bid Aloha to Bob Chang, longtime member of the magic clubs in Hawaii. See his obituary in the Sunday July 2nd Advertiser and read of not only his accomplishments but of the tragedy in his family as well. I had no idea that the mayor had actually proclaimed a "Bob Chang Day" back in 1990.
On George Quirk: I did not get a chance to attend the service for George Quirk, but I can tell you that he was the most friendly and supportive guy that you ever met in your life. He was always happy and lived what he posted on his car license plate: "BE NICE". I would see him at the Burger King at Hickam AFB in the mornings where he would gather with his friends. He was easy to spot, with his outgoing personalty and positive outlook on life. I will certainly miss him.
Dear Friends,You may already know my Dad, George Quirk, passed away peaceful in his sleep early Friday morning. He was diagnosed last March with a particularly aggressive type of cancer and at that time given one to three months to live. He faced his approaching death as he lived his life with humor, integrity, and thoughtfulness to others. He had the time to put all his affairs in order and to have those closest to him express what an incredible impact he haOd on their lives. His grandson Chris and his lovely bride Lisa were able to come from California for one last visit. We all went out to lunch and dinner several times and Dad rode in the golf cart as Chris, Lisa, Andrew and Yuriko played nine holes on the par three course. He looked at the pictures of that weekend several times a day in his last weeks.Dad drove Yuriko and himself to Hale Koa last Saturday and enjoyed his favorite dinner. It was not until later that night that the severe pain began. He only suffered for four days... where the in order to control the pain, he was unable to go to church and see his friends. He kept his sense of humor to the end joking with his visiting nurse and with his family. He died peacefully in his sleep. I cannot describe how very tranquil my Dad looked in death.He said last week " I have lived a long and wonderful life. If I had it to do all over I would not chance a thing." He will be missed.Memorial services will be held on June 9, 2006 at Borthwick Mortuary, 1330 Maunakea Street, Honolulu visitation at 6 pm services at 7 pm. He will be interned at Punchbowl Memorial Cemetery on June 13 at 11:30 pm with full military honors.Sincerely,Ingrid NelsonGeorge Quirk's Daughter
