Birth name of Poncie Ponce[edit]

An unsourced June 22 edit by unregistered user Ppchaltas changed Ponce's real name from Ponciano Hernandez to Ponciano Ponce. I have now sourced his birth name as Hernandez with an article in the Maui News. This same unregistered user also posted on July 23 that Ponce died on July 19. Would like to assume good faith on that edit, but there appears to be nothing on the internet that Ponce has actually died. Need verfication, please. — Maile (talk) 12:55, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

An unsourced change has been once again made to revert his birth name of Hernandez to Ponce, which is not sourced reliably anywhere. This change was made by an IP address. — Maile (talk) 16:41, 24 July 2013 (UTC)
Once again, someone has listed a death date for Ponce. It needs to be sourced. Otherwise, this is still a BLP. — Maile (talk) 19:18, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

Now that his death has been sourced, I also added the obit source from the Honolulu Advertiser-Star Bulletin, which confirms his birth name as Hernandez, and that his name was changed to Ponce by Jack Warner.— Maile (talk) 00:25, 18 August 2013 (UTC)
