Born on 3.15.07, tragically, on 2.22.22 Keoni Kau lost his life way too soon. Son of Mistyblu Goodapple, stepdad Jason Goodapple, John Kau and stepmom Jessica Kau. Keoni is survived by his siblings Jacob and Janilee Goodapple, Slater Kau, as well as his step brother and sister Michael and Haile Smith. Keoni was a great brother to his siblings and was always concerned for their wellbeing. He met his soulmate Alyssa (Auggie) Stevens in 2021 who he loved unconditionally, even at the tender ages of 14 and 15 they knew true love. Keoni is survived by his grandfather John Schlueter Sr. and grandparents Debbie and Duane Long. He was preceded in death by his grandmother, Rebecca Rose Schlueter.

Keoni was a very inspiring, loving young man. He touched so many lives of so many others through his caring and giving heart. Keoni was for sure a Mama’s boy. He continuously was his Mama’s biggest cheerleader as she continues her nursing career. As a family, Keoni enjoyed being in the kitchen and making Keoni style messes with his little sister Janilee. Keoni enjoyed visiting his dad John, and spending time with his step mom brother and sister.  He loved to soak up the sun by being outdoors fishing, skateboarding, swimming, and riding his bike. Keoni loved his dog Punch, they enjoyed exploring trails and being best buds. He loved doing yard work and projects with his team mate and dad, Jason.  When the skies were gloomy Keoni would spend his time drawing, writing poems, and listening to music. Keoni was a very passionate and creative young man. He loved playing the guitar, piano and video games with his big brother Jacob. Keoni was a genuinely fun loving, goofy 14 year old teenager that will forever be missed, his memory will forever live on.

The family is so thankful and touched by the show of love and support from family, friends, and the community.

Fly high in heaven our Sweet Keoni! We love you to the moon and back, Carry on soldier!

    It's been a while and I know I'm late, but I still miss you. All the time. When I first met you, I couldn't get you out of my head, you are the type of person I wish I was more like. Wild and random, but still fun and compassionate. Not afraid to hide any part of you. Plus, you kinda look like Tyler Joseph, but that might just be me (for some reason I found that hilarious, first thing I noticed about you). That reminds me of the time when we both said we were having shitty days. Yours because of a haircut you hated. You didn't want to show your face on the call because of it. Of course I loved the cut, because I loved you, and it didn't hurt that it made you look even more like Tyler. So, since you're Keoni, you put on a red beanie and a black outfit for me so you could imitate Tyler Joseph. I could not stop smiling after that, and you couldn't either. Turned my entire day around. I hope I made a lot more of your days like that, made you a little bit happier. I am so glad I met you and that you were a part of my life (have to thank mia for that part). I'll never forget you.
    Love, Eisley <3 (The one you called pumpkin at one point)

    You were such a sweet young man, and I am so glad I had the opportunity to have you in my class. You were a light to everyone around you. Rest easy in the arms of Jesus and God bless your sweet soul.

    I truly am discomforted by your passing. I was not able to speak to you or become friends with you again before you left us. I miss you Tigger.
    Forever in my heart,
    Hailey Kulpeksa & Adam Smith
