Glenn William Rex I’i
The Waianae community has lost a truly Hawaiian brother with the untimely passing on June 22, 2020 of "Baba" I'i. Born Glenn William Rex I'i, December 12, 1959, he emerged a victor, a conqueror through his trials and tribulations, in this one simple fact: he never lost is tremendous capacity to love. He was respected and adored by all who met him and had a heart full of giving to whoever asked. His hands were strong and always willing to cook, build, fix, and mostly, to help. His ruggedly handsome looks were of legend, his smile and youthful laugh, warm and hearty. He was preceded in death by his mother Audrey U'ilani I'i, brothers Carl Peeples and Kalani Peeples. His surviving siblings are: Sharonlee Anderson; Charmaine Caminos; Rowena VanGieson; Geneiva I'i; Jury I'i; Glenda Luna; Glenn Rex I'i Jr.; Thomas I'i; Brenda Abaro; William Aku I'i; Clifford I'i Sr.; and Brent I'i. He is survived by twelve children: Rex I'i-Lester; Kelebb Abalanosa; Rainee Abalanosa; Moses Sampaga; Joy Sampaga; Israel Sampaga; Kealohapauolepualani Kepo'o; Hokulani Kepo'o; Tiani Beaman; Kekoa I'i; Keanu I'i; and Keala I'i and five grandchildren. His celebration of life is being coordinated by the family, tentatively scheduled for August 2020. For more information, contact his cousin Ginai Hill on FB.
