Aloha, Charlie Wedemeyer
Aloha, Charlie Wedemeyer
Written for the family by David Kiefer It was hard to tell which was more glorious, the vision that many old-time Hawaiian sports fans have of Charlie Wedemeyer, or the one held by generations of Los Gatos High football players. Both tell a story about Charlie, who passed away June 3 at age 64, that words fail to express. On the islands, many can still vividly recall the touchdown Charlie scored against rival Kamehameha in the 1964 Interscholastic League of Honolulu championship football game before a sellout crowd of 25,038 at the old Honolulu Stadium and a statewide television audience. With the score tied 6-6 in the third quarter, Charlie, Punahou School’s 5-foot-7 senior quarterback, ran down an errant lateral at the 25-yard line and began a weaving, dodging, reverse-field epic of a run that officially went for only 14 yards, but took 30 seconds off the clock and launched Wedemeyer into the status of legends. Nearly every defensive player had a shot at him, but no one could bring him down before he reached the end zone for the go-ahead touchdown in Punahou’s 20-6 upset victory on Thanksgiving Day. Years later, another vision would be no less memorable: Charlie, in his role as assistant coach for the Los Gatos frosh-soph team, instructing young quarterbacks on how to properly throw a football. To emphasize certain mechanics in the player’s throwing motion, Charlie sometimes had players lie on the ground and throw the ball over his wheelchair and mammoth specially-equipped van. “Just don’t hit him,” friend and fellow assistant Craig Williams would advise the nervous youngsters. And Charlie would smile. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis couldn’t bring Charlie down. ALS, or more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, caused his muscles to waste away and removed his ability to move, speak, eat, and even breathe on his own. But Wedemeyer found a calling, through the disease, that not even he could have foreseen. The transition and the sacrifices were difficult. They were full of heartache and tears. Insecurity and fear. Charlie, after all, was a man who had taken great pride in his physical ability to do what few others could even dream of. And it was all taken away. The life-and-death struggle was constant, but the ordeal evolved into a lifetime of self-discovery, an appreciation of life’s subtleties and a humbling bond with Jesus Christ. Because of these things, the man who could not speak, spoke the loudest. Charlie became a magnet to those who were broken, to those who hungered for an understanding ear and a compassionate soul. The man who had every right to wallow in self-pity somehow brought laughter to others, through his eyes, a funny face, or a practical joke. Rookie nurses experienced this first-hand. When they timidly attempted to suction his throat for the first time, Charlie would make a face and rolled his head in agony, causing the nurse to scream. Even Charlie could not keep a straight face. Halloween, birthdays, costume parties, Charlie was always a willing participant. And the house seemed to be the most popular one on the block, even to the consternation of a neighbor or two. And no roasted pig ever tasted better than at Charlie’s. Charlie spent his days memorizing recipes by watching the cooking channel, and nights instructing nurses on the proper way to prepare teriyaki chicken. For someone who couldn’t eat, he sure loved food. At one football practice, he discovered that the father of a freshman player owned a Chinese restaurant. Through Williams, he called the player over and for the next half hour, while the boy should have been practicing, Charlie asked him to recite the entire menu, raising his eyebrows at every item and salivating the entire time. His family and grandchildren were his joy, and his teams were his pride. Football players, students, old friends, new friends, all would stop by and see the coach. And anyone who entered the front door became family, or ‘ohana, in the Hawaiian culture. That’s just the way Charlie was raised. Charlie was born on Feb. 19, 1946, in Honolulu as the youngest of Bill and Ruth Wedemeyer’s nine children. While older brother Herman Wedemeyer, a football star at Saint Mary’s College, would set the athletic standard of excellence for the family, Charlie became a three-sport star at Punahou – in football, basketball, and baseball – while earning nine varsity letters. Charlie was a three-time ILH football All-Star and 1964 ILH Player of the Year, and a basketball first-team All-Star. He led the Buff ‘n Blue to league titles in football (1964), basketball (1964), and baseball (1965), where he played second base, and would be selected by the Honolulu Advertiser as the Hawaii Prep Athlete of the Decade. He joined barefooted kicker Dick Kenney and fullback Bob Apisa as part of coach Duffy Daugherty’s Hawaiian pipeline to Michigan State, and played a key role in the Spartans’ 1966 national-championship season. He was a holder

Joe and the Getty "Banquet Preparation" wall painting- Julio Claudian Period
The Roman banquet set the standard for extravagant dining. Course after course of rich and elaborate food was served as a statement of the host's wealth and social status. This fresco fragment depicts activity in a Roman kitchen. Two men gut a small animal that looks like a fawn. In most wealthy households, the kitchen help, even those with special skills like the cook, would have been slaves. Roman gourmands favored both wild game and the tender meat of very young animals, such as veal and suckling-pigs, so the choice of fawn might satisfy both tastes. Roman cuisine was also marked by the use of complex sauces. The vast extent of the Empire made many exotic ingredients available, and the use of expensive imported spices showed wealth. At the left side of this fresco, a metal tray resting on a pedestal holds a selection of ingredients, including piles of spices and a bulb of garlic. This fresco was only a small portion of the painted decoration that would have covered an entire wall. The piece is said to have come from a nobleman's villa near Boscoreale. Unknown Roman, Italy, A.D. 50 - 75 Plaster and pigment 27 3/8 x 50 x 1 3/8 in. 79.AG.112
