Former Marine supplier Charles McWayne Jr.

By Karen Blakeman
Advertiser Staff Writer

Charles Andrew McWayne Jr., a former president and vice president of McWayne Marine Supply, died last Sunday in Honolulu.

McWayne’s family company was one of the oldest businesses in the state when it closed in 1994.

McWayne Marine Supply first opened in 1823 under another name at Honolulu Harbor. It supplied provisions to whaling vessels and was founded by ship’s carpenter James Robinson, McWayne’s ancestor who arrived in Hawaii in 1820.

The business moved to Kewalo Basin in 1950, where it remained until it was demolished for a state waterfront improvement project.

McWayne, born in 1920, was the son of C.A. McWayne and Christine Marie Boolsen, both of Hono-

lulu. In 1943, he married Kathleen Patterson of Kahului, Maui.

He was a World War II veteran and served with the 42nd Rescue Squadron.

McWayne is survived by his wife, Kathleen; daughter, Ann Kathleen McWayne Kennedy of Honolulu; son, Allen Charles McWayne of Eugene, Ore.; granddaughter, Carole Ann Kennedy; and grandsons, Scott David Kennedy and Dana Julian McWayne.

The family held a private graveside ceremony at Oahu Cemetery.
