POSTED: Tuesday, February 17, 2009

A Mass for Star-Bulletin editorial cartoonist Corky Trinidad will be held at 1:30 p.m. Sunday at the Newman Center, 1941 East-West Road, on the University of Hawaii campus.

Corky, Francisco Flores Trinidad Jr., died Friday at St. Francis Hospice of complications from pancreatic cancer. He was 69.

He drew cartoons for the Star-Bulletin for 40 years.

He is survived by his wife of 44 years, Hana; sons Lorenzo and Emmanuel; daughters Pia Sprague, Lara Nishimura and Anela Trinidad; and two grandchildren, Kera Nishimura and Matty Sprague.

The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to St. Francis Hospice or the Newman Center.
