LYLE GALDEIRA

Posted On December 29th, 2013 -

12-29  LYLE GALDEIRALYLE ARTHUR KALAUOKALANI GALDEIRA 1954-2013 “Good things come in small packages.” It’s a succinct yet fitting quote that Lyle Galdeira embodied, and one which he insightfully chose to emblazon near his Punahou School yearbook portrait. What he lacked in height, Galdeira more than made up for with an iconic voice, infectious laugh and passion for helping others. Galdeira passed away on Nov. 25. He was 59. Galdeira was born and raised in Honolulu, and graduated as a member of the Buffanblu ohana in 1973. He moved on to Pacific University in Oregon where he honed his journalism skills and spent time with fellow “local boys” amidst the cold and sometimes dreary weather. Four years later, Galdeira joined the KGW Radio team in Portland, Ore. where he began his broadcasting career as a traffic reporter. As KGW news director and colleague John Erickson explained, Galdeira “brought, without question, a perfect combination of inborn knack, killer instinct, joy for the work, and love for life.” After moving back home, Galdeira transitioned into the television realm, and spent time with both KITV and KGMB television stations where he developed a knack for investigative journalism and an appreciation for covering the local political scene. The state government then called upon Galdeira who transitioned seamlessly into the public relations field as spokesperson for the Department of Public Safety. However, reporting remained Galdeira’s passion, and the veteran newsman returned to the local airwaves in 1995 as a member of the upstart Hawaii News 8 broadcast team. While he took pride in serious news coverage, Galdeira developed a following for his work on recurring segments dubbed “Does it Work?” and “Cheap Eats.” During the respective weekly reports, Galdeira would test gizmos and gadgets, and sought out the best food Hawaii had to offer at affordable prices alongside Chef Sam Choy, and later, with friend and colleague Russell Yamanoha. In another display of versatility, Galdeira switched gears in 2005 by becoming a real estate agent. Galdeira explained that his passion for helping people spurred the career change, as did his interest in Hawaii’s housing market. During his free time, Galdeira enjoyed spending time with family and rooting on his favorite NFL squad, the Pittsburgh Steelers. He also enjoyed relaxing at the beach, and manning the barbeque-a job he also looked forward to at the annual Prudential Locations company party. Galdeira is survived by wife Kathy, son Kyle, daughter Emma and mother Anna Duncan. A private family service was held earlier this month at the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Memorial Chapel on the Kamehameha Schools campus from which both his children graduated. A Celebration of Life is currently being planned, and those interested in more information may contact lylegmemorial@gmail.com.
