Mel Kiyuna shared a post on FB. Sad news of a former co-worker from the DISA DNMSS-G General Dynamics contract years. Richard was a kind and very gentle soul, perhaps one of my “conscience” type co-workers who always reminded me of the need to be courteous and forgiving. Rest in eternal peace Richard.… Continue Reading “Richard Fukuhara”

Willie K. passed away last night after a battle with lung cancer. One of Hawaii’s greats. I liked his music, although I didn’t listen to him specifically. He was always definitely in the mix of the Hawaii backdrop music I did listen to. When news broke that he was stage 4, I wanted to go see him live … Continue Reading “Aloha Willie K.”

The Santos’ are Lou’s family on the Golo side. Pilar and Lou are first cousins, and she grew up close to them. The Santos family is also my family from upbringing. Our families grew up next door neighbors. … Continue Reading “Nina Pilar passed away today”
Officer Enriquez’s funeral and final roll call ceremony was today. I captured the videos from KHNL’s web site. Officer Kaulike Kalama’s funeral has not yet been announced by the family or HPD.

I look for old friends, acquaintances, and Army buddies/associates from time to time. Particularly of the original USACC/USAISC Det Comm crew since we were sort of all closely associated as we came to Hawaii as a team. One of them was Jimm Sipp, SP5. After he left Hawaii I never heard from him again, and neither… Continue Reading “I think this is one of our original Kunians Jim Sipp?”
