Long before Mr. BlueMaumau began 'churning' up the tiny air bubbles from diving deeper into the waters of franchising, Don Ho was singing about them. Don Ho, passed away yesterday. He was a franchise of long standing and next to Mr. Blue perhaps Hawaii's most famous citizen. Perhaps Mr. Blue, Pualani and others with ties to Hawaii can share some Don Ho stories with the rest of us.
HONOLULU - Legendary crooner Don Ho, who entertained tourists for decades wearing raspberry-tinted sunglasses and singing the catchy signature tune "Tiny Bubbles," has died. He was 76.
He died Saturday morning of heart failure, publicist Donna Jung said.
Ho had suffered with heart problems for the past several years, and had a pacemaker installed last fall. In 2005, he underwent an experimental stem cell procedure on his ailing heart in Thailand.
Condolences to all who Ho loved, and who loved Ho!
