EARL NATHAN KANOELANI THOMPSONDecember 13, 1931 to February 7, 2019 "Aloha no wau ia 'oe. Ke Akua pu a hui hou." Our family's beloved alaka'i, Earl Nathan Kanoelani Thompson, age 87, was called to rest on February 7, 2019, in his home in Honolulu, Hawai'i. He is joyously reunited with the love of his life, Suelily Ann Toro Thompson, along with brothers Melvin and David Thompson, Jr., sister Beatrice Puanani Naho'olewa, father David Manuonalani Thompson, mother Agnes Ku'ulei Pereira, and stepfather Joseph Silva. Born on December 13, 1931, in Honolulu, he rose from a life of poverty and hardship to become an educated, well-respected, and greatly admired Assistant Chief of Police with the Honolulu Police Department and Colonel in the Hawai'i Army National Guard. However, his greatest achievement was being the best husband, dad, and granddad a family could ever have. He loved unconditionally, forgave freely, inspired excellence in all who knew him, and always put his family first. He truly was the best man and role model our 'ohana has ever known. Earl's spirit and legacy lives on in his four daughters, Terry (Clea Arguilles) Thompson, Susan Lucyga, Lori (Joseph) Lum, and Erin Thompson, and his grandchildren, Sonia Lucyga, Sasha Lucyga, Brittani Lum, Jennifer Lum, Treyton Loo, and Shaelyn Loo. He is also survived by his younger sister Mae Kaupiko and his half-brother Joseph Silva, Jr. He will be laid to rest beside his wife at Mililani Memorial Park & Mortuary on Wednesday, March 27, 2019. Public visitation is from 9:30-11:00 a.m. at the Mauka Chapel. Services begin at 11:00 a.m. with the burial at 12:30 p.m. Aloha/casual attire as dad would have wanted.
Our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the deceased
