Plant a tree in memory of JOSEPH

A proud partner of Honoring a Life

Joseph Hiromu Okano, 89, transitioned on May 6, 2019 at his home with his family by his side. He was born in Hana, Maui and was a boarder and graduate from Lahainaluna High school class of 1948. He retired from HECO after 39 years of service and from Hawaii Kai golf course after 25 years of service. He is survived by wife Edna; daughters: Karin Higo (David Higo) Gerri Nishida ( Neil Nishida) and granddaughter Kristen Chun ( Marcus Chun) and great granddaughter Kaila Chun and sister in law Jane Okano. Private funeral services were held on June 5 2019 at Kilohana United Methodist Church.

We will always remember him as a very generous, giving, thoughtful loving person who enjoyed caring for his family, friends and pets. He loved sports, golf, biking, baseball and doing things around the house.

He loved picking up his granddaughter from school and spending time watching her as she grew up, traveling with his wife and family, get together with his family, golfing with friends and spending time with his dogs. We are honored to have known such a special man. We will forever love him and feel his love!

We are grateful that he is resting in peace with God!
