WILLIAM E. ANTONE

Formerly of Hawaii, passed away March 31 2011 in San Leandro California. Born on November 2, 1928 Bill was raised by parents Emelia and Manuel in Honolulu along with brothers Able and Clifford and sisters Helen, Hazel, Bernice and Delores. He served his country in the US Air Force, was a terrific musician, an accomplished artist and horse racing aficionado.

Services were held April 8th in California, but it was Bill’s wish that he come home to the place he loved best, Hawaii. On April 19th at 11 am, Bill will be laid to rest at the Hawaii State Veteran’s Cemetery in Kaneohe.

Bill is predeceased by brother Able Antone and sister Bernice Day; he is survived by his brother, Clifford Antone, sisters Helen Whitworth, Hazel Gonsalves and Delores Santoki, longtime companion June Stephens and many nieces and nephews. Aloha ‘Oe Ukulele Willy.
