William always enjoyed good food.  We were at a Chinese restaurant
in W.LA for a birthday party.  Here comes his favorite chocolate cake
with candles for him to blow out.  The surprise was the dusting of chocolate
powder on the cake that enshrouded him and the entire table when he blew out the candles. 
We all enjoyed a good laugh along with the excellent Chinese food and wonderful company.
We will miss his wry sense of humor and intellect.

William Minoru Hohri was a man who loved to share.
William Minoru Hohri was a man of ideas.
William Minoru Hohri loved to share his ideas.

We would talk on the phone for hours.
That is, he would talk and I would listen.
On one such occasion, during a lull in the conversation,
I suddenly realized the brilliance of what he was saying.
I took the rare opportunity to share my discovery with William.
That s exactly what I told you twenty minutes ago! he complained,
and abruptly hung up the phone.
I know. I explained to the dial tone at the other end of the line.
I only wanted to assure him that his words had finally found their mark.

William Hohri always had the first and the last word,
and that is as it should be, as his ideas were always in the interest
for the betterment of all of mankind.

William Minoru Hohri was a man who loved to share.
