Ponciano Tabac Ponce



Obituary

April 10, 1933 - July 19, 2013
Ponciano Tabac Ponce "Poncie Ponce", at the age of 80, passed away peacefully at home in Los Angeles, California on July 19, 2013.

Ponciano was born in Maui, Hawaii and raised on the Big Island in Paauhau and Honokaa by his parents Maria and Alberto Hernandez with his 4 brothers and 2 sisters. Ponciano served as a corporal in the U.S. Army stationed in Germany during the Korean War. In 1958, he signed on with Warner Bros. to star as Kim the cab driver in "Hawaiian Eye", the first television show about Hawaii. It was then that Jack Warner renamed him "Poncie". The show led to numerous television appearances and movie parts, most notably "Speedway" with Elvis Presley. After "Hawaiian Eye's" 5 season run, Poncie traveled the world singing and performing in nightclubs from Australia to Canada to Argentina to Japan. In his retirement, he spent time with his family and friends and continued to delight with his energetic performances.
He is survived by his wife, Sherry Luke Ponce; his daughters Debra Doty (husband James), Paula Chaltas (husband George) and Margaret Zrehigian (husband Brian); his grandsons Dane, Devin, Jack and Charles; his sisters Feliza Jones and Juanita Balmores; and his brothers Alfred Hernandez (wife Iris), Joseph "Pepe" Hernandez and Delphine Hernandez (wife Brooke).
Poncie was a talented musician and funny guy with a great voice and a charming stage presence. Entertainment was his true passion and he was singing up to the last day of his life.

Services will be held at 2:00PM on Thursday, August 1, 2013 at St. Monica's Catholic Church in Santa Monica, California.

Actor Michael Ansara
April 15, 1922 - July 31, 2013

Born in a small town in Syria, Mr. Ansara mostly played ethnic roles, Native American Indians being a particular specialty. But he was also cast as an Egyptian taskmaster in “The Ten Commandments,” ; as Judas Iscariot in “The Robe” (1953), and an Arabian prince who kidnaps an American movie star, played by Elvis Presley, in “Harum Scarum” (1965).

One of his most memorable roles was the Klingon leader Kang in “Star Trek.” He played the part on the original television series in 1968 and reprised the role for two of its TV descendants: “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” and “Star Trek: Voyager.” He was one of a handful of actors to play the same part on three different “Star Trek” series. Most recently he provided the voice of Mr. Freeze in the animated TV series “Batman” and “Batman Beyond.”

Married to Barbara Eden 1958-1973.

Even when I was a kid I thought Michael Ansara was great as King Kamehameha.
