Lancelot Mauna Kea Yong
April 29, 1975 - October 19, 2021. Beloved son, father, brother, soulmate, cousin, and friend. Lance gained his wings on Tuesday October 19, 2021 at the Queen's Medical Hospital - Punchbowl. Lance was born and raised in Wahiawa, Oahu. He attended Wahiawa Elementary and Intermediate prior to moving to Napili, Maui where he would attend Lahainaluna High School and graduate Class of 1993. "He 'Opu halau." A house-like stomach. - A heart as big as a house. Said of a person who is kind, gracious, and hospitable. 'ON #869 Lancelot, known by most people as Lance, had a beautiful kind soul. He was ever so gracious, hospitable, and compassionate. A loyal man with the biggest heart and smile that would light up the darkest room. Our gentle teddy bear was sweet, caring, and loved for his big heart. Lance will be remembered for being dependable, reliable, and trustworthy. He could always be counted on to help. A friend for others thru their thick and thin. Lance would drop everything to respond to the situation at hand, never stopping to think "what's in it for me?". Lance believed in working hard and took pride in everything he did. Those values would be passed on to those around him. He is strong and so loved by his family, friends, and community. He will be greatly missed. E moe me maluhia i ka poli ke Akua. "E lei kau, e lei ho'oilo i ke aloha." Love is worn like a wreath through the summers and the winters. - Love is everlasting. 'ON #332

His Brothers Jason Kamehameha Yong, Kenui Watson and Eric Salvador. His sisters Malamakai Watson, Ekekela Watson and Ikapela Watson. His soulmate Haunani Haia.
