30-year director of Miss Hawaii Pageant dies at 70

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) The longtime director of the Miss Hawaii Pageant has died.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports Thomas "Thom" McGarvey Jr. died Jan. 8 at an assisted living facility in Oahu. He was 70.

A pageant official, Ray Abregano, said McGarvey had liver cancer.

McGarvey served as executive director of the pageant for three decades, during which he helped establish a foundation to give scholarships for women aspiring to win the Miss America crown. He also helped lift the pageant from a competition struggling for visibility to a television broadcast with a live audience.

Plans for a memorial service were pending.
