Brothers: Joseph G. Kealoha Jr., Alden Kealoha, George A. Kealoha (Kanani), Gardner Alapai Kealoha.
Ernest served for 37 years as a Substation Supervisor for Hawaiian Electric Co. He was a Real Estate Broker for 40 yrs and owned and operated Waialae Realtors. He was King Kamehameha in the 1980 King Kamehameha Parade. He was very active in his children's sports activities, tennis, soccer and football. He was a member of the Star of the Sea Church in Kahala, Elks Club, and past member of the Honolulu Board of Realtors. His hobbies included building, welding, and planting.
Ernest is a proud graduate of the Kamehameha Schools Class of 1960, which two weeks ago celebrated its 50th year Reunion at the Alumni Luau. He enjoyed seeing many old friends some of whom were with him in Kindergarten all the way to 12th grade. He was a stand out football player at Kamehameha where he played offensive line and defensive tackle. He was on the 1958 Championship Team. He was an avid supporter of Punahou's Annual Carnival. Every year he volunteered his time preparing flowers for the Haku Leis and of course doing his favorite pastime-talking story with his fellow lei makers.
Education was very important to Ernest. He sent all of his children to private school. He was a kind and loving husband, father, and papa. He cherished all the moments he had with his family.
