NEAL BLAISDELL ANE
Neal Blaisdell Ane, a long-time Hawai’i football coach and teacher, grandson of former Honolulu Mayor Neal S. Blaisdell, and youngest son of the late, legendary coach Charles “Charlie” Teetai Ane Jr., passed away on Oct. 2, 2012. He was 56. Ane was born on Oct. 19, 1955, in Detroit, where his father played center for the World Champion Detroit Lions. Charlie and his wife Marilyn Blaisdell Ane shared a passion for athletics and an enduring love of Hawai’i. After the Anes returned to the islands in 1959, they enrolled Neal and his older siblings, Kale and Malia, at Punahou School. Neal was an outstanding athlete who played football, basketball and baseball for the Buff ‘n Blue. He was named ILH football defensive player of the year in 1973 and won the 1974 ILH baseball batting championship award, mirroring one his father’s early achievements. Neal graduated from Punahou School in 1974 and went on to play football at Brigham Young University-Utah. Neal most recently worked as a PE teacher and counselor at Ka Waihona o Ka Na’auao public charter school in Nanakuli. Over a 20-year career as a football coach, he worked at a number of schools, including Damien Memorial School, Kalani High School, Kula Kaiapuni O Anuenue, St. Anthony Junior-Senior High School on Maui, Radford High School and Punahou. “His unbelievable sense for football is what made him the great player and coach that he was,” said son Hoapili. “He taught his players life skills, and they all became part of his extended family.” Neal lived life with gusto, his natural ebullience lifting the spirits of those around him. An avid outdoorsman, he could often be found camping at the family home in Hau’ula or enjoying the ocean. He was a deeply loyal and compassionate friend and a devoted family man who loved spending time with his children and grandchildren. “Neal taught me to be a better kumu by teaching me patience, humility, positive spirit and perseverance,” said Malia, director of K-12 Hawaiian Studies at Punahou School. “We miss him and we love him dearly.” Added Hoapili, “He showed us how to live and love life, and how to be a great dad, grandfather, brother and friend to all.” Neal is survived by children Neal Hoapili (Chana), Marcus Keola (Noelani), James Kaha’iali’iokaiwiulaokamehameha and Samantha Kaulananapua; grandchildren Marcus Keola, Jr, Eva Mahealani Dudoit, Braylen Pu’uwaihaokila Simon and Neal Ulumaheihei Blaisdell; brother Kale and sister Malia. Services will be held Sunday, Oct. 28, with visitation from 12 – 1:45 p.m. and service and reception to follow at Thurston Memorial Chapel on the Punahou School campus.
