He is survived by his loving wife Sharon, his sister Jane & her husband Rainer Domingo (Honolulu, Hawaii), his sons Michael & Yasmin Matsui (Woodbridge, Virginia), Cory & Amy Matsui (Rockville, Maryland), Dean Matsui (Kapolei, Hawaii), and his hanai son Bobby Brimmer (Burbank, California). He is also survived by nephew Nicholas Domingo and grand- children Colin, Cole, Mikey, Lily and Logan. Claude diligently served his country as an Army field artillerymen and later with his service in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The latter of which he worked tirelessly to safeguard the lives of soldiers who served our country. He lived fierce in character, stubborn in his convictions, and passionate about those he loved. His life cannot entirely be conveyed, for it has yet to end. The aloha spirit that he shared is carried on by those he loved and, with it, so is he. Services to be held Saturday August 9th at 11am at Kaumakapili Church, 766 N King St.
