AMBROSE M. COSTA “JR.”

October 20, 1926 – April 06, 2011

Jr., as he was known to many, was a 24/7 Believer and exemplified the following 1 Corinthians verse.

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.

He was a loving and dedicated husband, father, grand-father and brother. He was a decorated WWII Veteran. He was employed with the City and County of Honolulu until he retired in 1985 with over 40 years of service.

Ambrose was preceded in death by, his wife of 32 years, Betty Aiau Costa and son Russell Negrillo.

Wes was a member of the legendary Richardson curling team in the early 1960s. Wes along with his cousins Ernie, Arnold, and Sam have received many honors due to their record winning four time Canadian and World Championships. This record has yet to be broken.

His grandchildren, Tiana, Nolan, Reed, and Chris, were the light of his life. He also leaves his brother Norman (Irene). Following his retirement from the BHP Refinery & Gas Plant (Tesoro) in 1992, Wes has spent many hours each week volunteering his electrical and maintenance capabilities at Kailua United Methodist Church. As a life long athlete, his first and greatest love was hockey. His other passions were baseball, curling, long distance cycling, and running marathons.
