Liu, Richard S.C.
Our beloved husband, father, father-in-law and grandfather passed away on October 4, 2005, at the age of 85. He was born in Honolulu, Hawaii as one of 12 children of Chinese immigrant parents. During his 39-year career with Pan American Airways, 4 years with Tower Air and 5 years with Continental Airlines, he was stationed in many foreign countries. He traveled and played golf around the world. Throughout, his wife was his constant companion. He married Evelyn Kam in 1947 on an auspiciously rainy day in October. To the Chinese, rain is supposed to bring good luck. It brought Richard 58 years of a long and happy marriage, 6 children, 7 grandchildren and a lifetime of travel. No matter how far he traveled, he remained Hawaiian down to his toes. He loved the Islands, people, food, and music. He was a man of simple tastes and few words. If mom had let him, he would have spent his life dressed in a white, v-neck t-shirt, shorts and slippahs. He was a jack-of-all-trades and knew how to build or fix anything. He is survived by his wife, Evelyn, his children Roland, Richard, Debra, Kevin (Terri), Robyn (Gary) and Susie; and his grandchildren Leilani, Tiffany, Chelsea, Trent, Trace, Ryan and Michael. No visitation. Funeral mass: Monday, October 10, at 10:00A at St. Catherine Laboure Church, 3846 Redondo Beach Blvd., Torrance. Casual Dress. A Chinese lunch will follow. The interment will be private.
