Thank you to the Punahou74 classmates who represented us at Brian’s service. From what they related, it was a heartfelt occasion.

Coach Brian Chinn

Brian Chinn as pictured in the Pleasanton Weekly (4/9/2014)

Brian Donald Chinn, 57, of Pleasanton, Calif., an information technology manager, died in Palo Alto, Calif. He was born in Honolulu. He is survived by wife Eleanor; sons Michael, Jared and Griffin; mother Esther L.; brothers R. Alan and J. Douglas; and sister Diane J. Services to be held in Pleasanton. No flowers. (Honolulu Star-Advertiser, April 10, 2014)

When you have someone who dies at a relatively young age after coaching hundreds of youth and umpiring others through game after game it is not surprising that their funeral is well attended. Such was the case with Brian Chinn and his April 12 funeral.

As quoted in the Pleasanton Weekly, a fellow coach said that Brian was “one of those rare individuals that gave of his time, all the time to help the kids of Pleasanton have a coach and learn about sportsmanship and sports.”

(Sorry! Forgot to put this post up earlier. Hope you still enjoy the story.)

It takes a lot of grit and determination to make it through a malasada shift. Oh, the hot oil, the smell, the hours afoot. All for the love of Punahou, malasadas, and classmates (not necessarily in that order, of course) but someone’s got to do it! Why not prepare for such  an effort than by fortifying oneself with the strength that is to be found through the companionship of one’s oldest and dearest friends.

InvitationSuch was the case when a last minute invitation appeared online. Catherine Tomkison, David Parker, and Landis Lum were asking classmates to a Pre-Carnival Pot Luck Get Together at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. Catherine and David were in town from northern California and wanted to see if classmates could gather, enjoy some good food and times together. What a great idea!
