LOIS K.L. GUERRERO April 10, 1923 - February 3, 2015 Early Wednesday morning, on February 3, 2015 while at Kaiser Sand Canyon hospital in Irvine California, Lois slipped peacefully away, answering the Lord's call Home to enter the Gates of Heaven. Lois Kathleen Lauae-O-Makana was born on April 10, 1923 and was the third of seven children born to Rachel and Frank Cabral Sousa, Jr. in the Territory of Hawaii. Mother of five, she was affectionately referred to as Puna by her grandchildren; great-grandchildren along with many who were dear to her. Mom lived in Fountain Valley, California with daughter Cheri and grandson Hauoli for the past twenty-three years. At the tender age of four years, Lois learned to dance the hula, thus began her lifelong love and appreciation for the hula and all that is Hawaiian. As a young adult who danced hula, she was among the USO performers who entertained the military troops during WWII. She also was among the performers who greeted the Matson passenger liners (the USS Lurline, Mariposa, and the Monterey) during the 1940s and 1950s. Lois danced at several Waikiki hotels and nightclubs as a featured hula dancer. Lois traveled extensively touring the United States promoting Hawaii and the Shriners Hospital. While still in high school, Lois learned to knit which was a life-long enjoyment for her. She knitted countless pairs of baby booties and sweaters for family and friends and she knitted socks for our father. Mom learned to needlepoint and loved it, making over 100 Christmas Stockings for family and friends. Her love for knitting and needlepoint has been passed on and will be continued with her daughters, great-granddaughters, and nieces. Puna volunteered at Punahou School PFA office for more than a decade when her grandson Hauoli Guerrero attended school there. She was a life member of the Daughters of Hawaii and a longtime member of the Outrigger Canoe Club. Preceded into Heaven by former husband Howard L. Sr., Howard L. Jr. and Myron K.K. Guerrero, Lois is survived by her son Lloyd P. Guerrero, two daughters, Penny-Mae L. Takahashi (Ron), Cheri-Ann K. Guerrero, two sisters, Geraldine Alama and Mamo Howell, eleven grandchildren and fifteen great-grandchildren in addition to numerous nieces and nephews. A Celebration of Life gathering for both Mom and Nii will take place on Wednesday June 3, 2015 at Holoholo Bar and Grill located at 2494 Beretania Street, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Family will privately scatter her ashes at a later date.
MYRON KENNETH KELII GUERRERO 24 June 1949 - 11 March 2015 Myron passed away in the Hilo Medical Center with his wife Tamiko and youngest son Kino at his side. He succumbed to lung cancer, which he gallantly fought for the last three years. He answered the Lords' call Home to Heaven, just five weeks after his mother was called Home by the Lord. Born on June 24, 1949, to Lois and Howard Guerrero Sr., in Honolulu, Hawaii Myron was the youngest in the family of three boys and two girls. He was affectionately called "Nii" short for Niihau by his mother, family, and close friends. Myron attended Saint Augustine School, University Elementary and High School. Learning to surf in Waikiki at the age of eight he became a lifelong surfer who cultivated his skills with the long board. Myron also was an accomplished surfboard shaper, who quietly and humbly earned his place as one of the respectable surfers on the Westside of Oahu. At eighteen years of age Myron enlisted in the Army and upon graduation from his basic training, General Westmorland personally requested Nii serve as his Crew Chief for both Westmorland's airplane and helicopter at Andrews AFB in Washington D.C. However, being the Hawaiian that he was, Nii disliked the snowy weather of Washington D.C. and to considerable objection of his superiors he volunteered for Vietnam duty. While serving his two tours in Vietnam Nii was a Crew Chief and gunner for the UH-1H Huey gunships that flew the Nighthawk missions. Myron loved his country and answered Her call in a time of need; he was a true patriot and a warrior to the very end. Upon returning to Hawaii from his tours in Vietnam Myron moved from Honolulu to Hilo where he resided for the remainder of his life in Mountain View. He loved to surf at Pohoiki Beach where he was known to encourage others to enjoy surfing and all water sports. His warm smile, soft laugh, and sparkling green eyes will be missed by those who knew and loved him. Myron is survived by wife Tamiko, sons Hauoli of Fountain Valley, CA, Kapono of Honolulu, and Kino, daughters, Kristie Nourrie (Jay) and Leimaile, both of Honolulu; brother, Lloyd P., sisters Penny-Mae Takahashi, Cheri-Ann Guerrero both of Fountain Valley, CA. and five grandchildren, nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles along with numerous of cousins. A Celebration of Life gathering will take place at Holoholo's Bar and Grill on June 3rd from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. Myrons' ashes will be interned at Punchbowl National Cemetery on Friday June 5, 2015 at 11:00 a.m.
