Adam “Papa Jack” was a hard working man.

To Uncle Jack's Kaiwi family,
I want to express my most sorrowful condolence to the passing of a great man. I am Derrick Wong formerly of Hana, I am the grandson of Margaret and William (TuTu) Starkey. Aunty Helene was my aunt, my mom is Emelia (Aunty Amy) Lim one of her sisters. I grew up in Hana until I was 11 years of age and grew up with Jacqueline, Paul, Judy, Leroy, Eileen and Annette. I remember Uncle Jack as a wonderful and hard worker, remembered him as a ranch hand at Kapahulu Ranch with my grandfather as the Ranch Manager. I last met Uncle Jack in 2014 when I visited Hana and met him at the Hasegawa Gen Store. I am visiting Maui next year and had wanted to meet with him and other family relatives. I will stop and visit Puuiki Hill church to pay my respects to the family when I go there. I am so sorry for your loss of such a patriarch, a great man, my Uncle. Aloha.
