Edwin "Eddie" Cha Son Noh, founder and chief executive officer of Noh Foods of Hawaii, died at his Honolulu home on Dec. 15. He was 88 years old.

A veteran of the U.S. Army during World War II, Noh was born on a plantation in Waialua to migrant Korean workers and later grew up in the Punchbowl area, graduating from McKinley High School with the late U.S. Sen. Daniel Inouye, a friend and band mate who died two days after him.

Noh is survived by wife Miriam and sons; Howard, David and Raymond, who run the family-owned company.

Visitation is scheduled for Jan. 3 at 2 p.m., followed by a 3 p.m. funeral service at the Diamond Head Mortuary Chapel.

I only met him once, many years ago, but it was a meeting that I'll never forget. The man entertained me for more than an hour with his wit and wisdom. He deemed himself a mad scientist, who continuously invented things.
