Kilburn “Kibby” Whitney Mililani Mills

Kibby Mills, 65, unexpectedly passed away on May 1, 2020 at his home in Volcano, Hawaii. Kibby had a rancher's soul, and an innate gift for caring for animals, especially his dog Otter. He cultivated a beautiful yard that was a true work of art. He was a generous farmer and talented cook who always shared what he created. His endless circle of family and friends will remember him for his loving, unabashed personality, and unequivocally agree he was a man who lived life fully and with no regrets.
Kibby attended Punahou school until his sophomore year, then transferred home to Kahuku High School where he graduated in 1972. He worked for Aloha Airlines, and moved to Volcano, Hawaii in 1992, setting up a ranching and fence building business in the community he called home for the last 28 years.
Predeceased by his father George and brother Lani, Kibby leaves behind his loving, patient, kind wife Ronna to whom he was married for 30 years. His beautiful and talented daughter Malie will also deeply miss her Dad. He is also survived by his mother Barbara; brother Kimo (Linda); sister Pua (Bill) Ka`ai, nephews Kahaku and Koa; sister-in-law Nilmah Mills, nephews Tad and Grayson, niece Liz and many beloved cousins both here in Hawaii and on the mainland.

A scattering of his ashes at Punalu`u is pending.

Our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the deceased
