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!
