SCOTT BRENNAN URABE

We would like to sincerely thank all of you for your endless prayers, financial and emotional support during Scott’s battle with cancer. The insidious disease consumed almost all of his physical body, however his mind remained totally intact and his unwavering faith in God comforted him. Scott never complained or showed any bitterness and always said, “it is what it is!”

Scott Brennan Urabe age 42, left us on January 9, 2012 while at Pali Momi Hospital. He is now with the angels and at God’s side, free from the pain, anguish and suffering he endured for the past 18 months. Scott crossed over the rainbow bridge while holding hands with his father, mother, brother, and sister at his side. There were a couple of tears in his eyes but they were tears of joy knowing that he was going to a better place. A bright full moon against the dark pre dawn island sky lit his way heaven bound when he departed his earthly temporal life. Scott wanted to convey his appreciation to all of you that have done so much for him and felt thankful that he had so many good friends and relatives that showed so much kindness and cared very much about him.

Scott was born in Honoluu, Hawaii and lived in Waipahu. He was a Sales Manager for Love’s Bakery.

Scott is survived by his parents, Harlow Larson Urabe and Alice J. Urabe; brother, Ryan S.T. Urabe (Christine), and sister, Kristen A. Kashima (Terrence). Also, nephew Blake Urabe, and nieces, Hayley Urabe and Karisa Kashima.
