"Sam was a very well-liked person within our union as the longtime president of local 745," said Ronald Taketa, union financial secretary-business agent.

"He was respected by all the members and their spouses. He treated everyone with mutual respect and understanding.

"Basically, as president of this local he was truly a memorable ambassador of good will -- representing carpenters and their family members in Hawaii."
