He always said his Ohana (Family) was a gift from God. His life was centered on God and his family, especially his grandchildren and would excitedly look forward to their community events. (sports, school functions, etc.). He was truly a family man. He loved his Wife more than anything else in this world and would literally go to the ends of the earth for her. Everyone that knew them would agree that they were inseparable. Aunty Mona would always say to him "our marriage is a marriage made in Heaven." He would say to her "I love you my baby." They both were 16 when they dated and were married on August 23. He will be missed very much but we are truly blessed to have been loved him.
