Kahele in Chamber
Speaker Joseph M. Souki: “It is with great sadness that we, in the House, learned about State Senator Gil Kahele.  His contributions as a native Hawaiian, a Big Island resident and public servant to the entire state will be greatly missed. We mourn his passing and extend our thoughts and prayers to his family.”

Hawaii Island Delegation: “All of Hawaii Island and the state of Hawaii have lost a wonderful individual and energetic public servant.  As a Native Hawaiian born and raised in Milolii, Gil was truly a keiki o ka aina, and a gentleman who always had others in his heart before his own concerns. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and to all who felt Gil was a part of their family. He will be sorely missed at the Legislature.”

Members of the Hawaii Island delegation include representatives Mark Nakashima, Clift Tsuji, Richard Onishi, Joy San Buenaventura, Richard Creagan, Nicole Lowen and Cindy Evans.
