OBITUARIES for August 11 issue

By Staff | Aug 11, 2016

Kale Mars Gilbert, 46

Kale Mars Gilbert, 46, passed away at his residence in Napili on July 16, 2016. He was born on Lanai on Sept. 28, 1969, lived most of his life on Maui and graduated from Lahainaluna High School in May 1987.

Although Kale was born with a serious, life-threatening health issue, it never stopped him from loving God, living a good life, being the best brother anyone could have, or from blessing everyone with laughter and friendship.

Paraphrasing one of our favorite characters: “the spirit of aloha is strong with this one.”

Kale will be missed by all, especially his Napili and Kumulani Chapel ‘Ohana.

Kale is survived by his sisters, Gwen (Gilbert) Carpenter and Janine (Gilbert) Galindo; and brothers, Randall R. Gilbert and Keola K. Chan, and their families. He was preceded in death by his parents, Richard C. Gilbert, Georgiana S. Chan and Kenneth Chan (step-father).

His memorial service will be held at the Barn at Harvest at Kumulani Chapel on Office Road in Kapalua at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 13. Call 669-6905 for more information.
