Posted On January 12th, 2018 -

Patrick Kawiki Kwai Fong LooHad a remarkable zest for life: whitewater rafting, skiing, family travels, volleyball, baseball, cooking partaking of local foods, especially poke and poi, watching and playing sports... and constantly snacking. Those were some of his favorite things to do! Patrick was born on 2 April 1967, grew up in Honolulu, was a graduate of `Iolani, class of 1985, and earned his business degree from the University of Hawaii-Manoa, majoring in Travel Industry Management. He was in executive management positions at various 5 star hotels in Orlando, Florida, Maui, Beverly Hills, and Lanai for 20 years. Wanting to spend more time with his family, he then returned to Honolulu and was proprietor of Hawaii Adjusters in the insurance industry. He was not well for a number of years, but never gave up, striving to live as long as he could for his family. Patrick entered the Kingdom of God on 28 November 2017, and is survived by his wife Angela and children Rybekka, Danika, and Christian-Joshua. He also is survived by his parents Linda and David Loo, siblings Dr. John-Charles Loo (Melanie) and Lisa Baldemor (Vince), and three nephews and a niece. Words cannot describe how deeply Patrick will be missed. He was a warrior and a wonderfully thoughtful and caring person who made his family proud. Private services were held.
