Retired sugar executive Cataluna dies on Kauai

By Associated Press

LIHUE, Hawaii (AP) Retired sugar industry executive and former Office of Hawaiian Affairs trustee Donald Bruce Cataluna has died.

Cataluna died Saturday at Wilcox Memorial Hospital on Kauai at the age of 77.

His daughter Lee Cataluna told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser her father always looked beyond the plantation for ways to help the community.

He worked almost every job on the sugar plantation, from taking care of pack mules to managing some of the largest plantations in Hawaii.

He spent his career with C. Brewer & Co. and was one of the industry's first part-Hawaiian plantation managers.

The Garden Island reported Cataluna later served as a Kauai County project manager and grant administrator. He taught business classes at Kauai Community College as well as agricultural classes at Kauai Community Correctional Center.
