Our good friend Honoluludesktop has passed away.

Dear Members,

We have received sad news today about our good friend Honoluludesktop. It is with deep regret that I am informing you that our good friend Honoluludesktop passed away on August 5th in San Francisco. He is survived by his daughter, Elizabeth.

Honoluludesktop's name was Wesley Yoshikawa and he was a Honolulu based architect. He was one of the most friendly and helpful members that ever frequented SketchUcation, always lending a helpful hand in his many open posts. A true gentleman.

He will be missed, may he Rest in Peace.

Sincerely,

Mike

Oh my god, Mike, how terrible.
You're right, he seemed always there to offer insight and help to any question, not to mention his generosity with sharing his scripts...

I can't believe this.....My thoughts go out to his family and friends.

I am so saddened.
It has been a honor to be associated with him.

Yeah, this news was quite shocking to me as well. He was a friend here on the forum. He and I chatted a bit in PM's while he was developing some of his early scripts. He had a bit of previous CAD programming experience, so he was working to transfer that knowledge over to SketchUp programming. He was doing quite well at it.

We'll miss you Honolulu,

Chris

Very sad news :(
I never imagined that the death of a person I didn't knew personally will affect me :? . It did. Was he that old?
I learned a lot from this community and I'm not talking about sketchup, but about dedication, about selflessness. Let's just hope we will not get such news in near future.

Rest in peace!

It is sad to realize that Honoluludesktop will not be with us. It is wonderful to realize what a gift he was to the world, and to this community in his creative efforts.
May the family accept my humble condolences.

I read this sad news minutes after Mike posted it and here I am 12 hours later and I still don't know what to say.

Getting to know people in the virtual world is a strange new phenomena, although you have never met them you get to know their personalities in a strangely unique way. You read their posts and look at their work and somehow you feel a personal connection. Some people annoy you, some you are indifferent to, some make you laugh out loud or quietly chuckle to yourself. You may never directly correspond with them but each post you read adds up to a complete personality that you are familiar with. Over time you get to know who is worth listening to and Honoluludesktop certainly was.

Honoluludesktop's posts were always a good read, helpful, patient, talented, often humorous and always trustworthy. I had noticed he hadn't been around for a while but that is usually pretty normal for forums, people come and go all the time. To know he won't be posting again is sad indeed.

My best wishes go out to Wesleys daughter, Elizabeth and all his friends and colleagues. He will be missed and is already.

May you rest peacefully and your spirit live on in your creations.



I wonder is there anything we as a community can do for his family?

Peace to Wesley.

He was always helpful and insightful on the forum, but more than that his posts often seemed to convey a kind and humble nature.

I am saddened to hear about Honolulu's passing. I also enjoyed his thoughfull and helpfull comments.
I agree 100% with the post "Box" made above. It is hard to know what to say. The concept of virtual friends is new but the sence of loss is very real. I wish and pray for his family to find peace.

So very sad, I too am unfamiliar how one mourns for a virtual friend, yet I feel so sadden by the loss of someone I have never met. I have had many discussions on forum and via pm and email with Wesley, however I always referred to him as Honolulu. I only wished he would have made it to a basecamp so I’d at least have had a beer with him in order to validate the loss I’m feeling.
My heartfelt condolences to his family and everyone feeling his loss. He was a gentleman and always around to help when he could, SCF has lost a great member.

Like most people here I didn't know him personally, but Honolulu's passing has affected me much harder than I would have expected. Perhaps because this is such a close-knit little community. I've never been very good at expressing myself, so I'll just say RIP, Honolulu. :( :(
