That is sad news. Sad

I'll remember Jacob for his ukelele playing and his singing of "I Kona" with his Hawaiian falsetto at our HSGA conventions in Hawaii. Cool Cool

You could always count on him attending the HSGA conventions and spreading the aloha spirit.

He will be missed.

Aloha, Smile
Don

Sorry to hear of your, and our, loss, George.
He was a community minded man with great regard for all, giving his later years to help keep his generation fit thru Hawaiian music and dance at the Moilili Com. Center and elsewhere once his heydays were pau.

With him goes one of the last real connections to the wonderful years of old Hawaii and it's music.

Brad chose to stifle questioning of the HSGA concerning the archive of historic concert video that was promised to members for decades and never delivered or accounted for. In a flailing yet vapid defense they were cornered by their own words and then allowed to skate away when the thread was closed with further questioning currently disallowed. It's now up to HSGA members to force the issue if there is to be any resolution for those involved, the iconic musician's and supporters deserve better.

Yes Ron, Uncle Jacob had many 'talk-stories' of an absolutely fascinating life having been born in 1916. Uncle Jacob was "Waikiki", as they both grew together.
