Edmund (Fred) Hyun . . . email . . . Fred was born and raised on the island of O‘ahu where he attended the University Lab School. He graduated from the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa with a degree in psychology and later earned a master’s degree in social work.
After completing his undergraduate requirements in 1972, Hyun enlisted in the Hawai‘i Air National Guard and deployed to parts of the Far East, Pacific and U.S. Mainland until his retirement in 1993. Upon returning from his initial active duty Fred was hired by the Hawai‘i Youth Correctional Facility as a Youth Corrections Officer and in 1975 started the first halfway house for committed wards. In 1980, he was hired as a Supervisor with the Intake Service Center (ISC) to address jail overcrowding (under a federal grant) until 2001 when Fred became the Hawai‘i Intake Service Center Manager until his retirement from Public Safety in 2003.
Upon his retirement Fred was hired by Akal Security (Pacific Region) initially serving as its Compliance Officer, then Executive Officer and finally as the Administrative Services Officer. In 2009, Fred was hired by the Honolulu Liquor Commission as the contract Administrative Services Officer and later as Special Projects Coordinator.
In 2016, Governor David Ige appointed Hyun to serve as the Chair of the Hawai‘i Paroling Authority. The five-person authority is an independent quasi-judicial body, which, for administrative purposes only, is attached to the Department of Public Safety (DPS).
Currently, Fred sits on the Holomua Pu’uhonua Committee and the Professional Development Committee for the Association of Paroling Authorities International (APAI).
“Fred’s extensive knowledge and years of experience in criminal justice and public safety provide a solid foundation for his leadership of the Hawai‘i Paroling Authority, as it makes decisions about the timing and conditions of release for offenders, and their post-release supervision. The board is tasked with helping people gradually reenter their communities as law abiding citizens. I know Fred will continue efforts to reduce recidivism while promoting public safety for all of Hawai‘i’s citizens,” said Gov. Ige (04.20)
Roy Ishikawa . . . email . . . I went to college at Harvey Mudd College, and was happy to get a good job in Honolulu before I retired. I worked for the Naval Medical Clinic Industrial Hygiene Laboratory at Pearl Harbor and the Honolulu Corps of Engineers at Fort Shafter.
This photo was taken at Miyajima, Japan on one of our family trips. The kids in front are my daughter’s children, Tanner (with the red hat) and Carly. Next to Tanner is my wife, Shirley, daughter Christine and Tyler Kawamura, and me. The two people behind Shirley, are our son, Mark, and his girlfriend, Lynda Miyashita. Shirley and I are grateful that our daughter and son were able to get good jobs on Oahu, so we can see them often (04.20)

Warren Nishimoto . . . email . . . We had a mini reunion via Zoom last week. We had 18 classmates participating! Maybe it’s something all classes can do, especially during these times of quarantine (05.20)

Photos: The large gathering are descendants of Augusto and Rosalina Dias. He is one of three Portuguese men credited with introducing the Portuguese stringed instruments to Hawaii (braguinha, machete and rajao) which Hawaiians renamed ukulele. We gathered in Jan. 2019 to dedicate a plaque to him in Makiki Cemetery.
New Year’s picture 2017 shows my two girls, son-in-law, two grandkids, and Mom, who is still quite alive at 97.5 yrs.
I love the four generations of Dye women: Esther Dye, Lee Dye Takagi, Joanna Takagi Habermann and Kira Habermann.
In March, we were busted one night when instead of being home, we were in Target shopping for lentils for the I.H.S. cooking our church still does each Saturday. Another church friend laughed out loud and demanded to photograph us, calling us the Hippie Bandits.
