I will miss you truly, and I will always love you Vincent J. Kapoi Jr. May we all find peace when we find out more about this tragic senseless incident at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard.”
Vince also was taken from his ʻOhana that is so much shock and saddened by this tragedy. Vince's parents, his sisters and brother, aunties, uncles, grandmother, many cousins and friends will never be the same.
"My Cuzzin Vinny Boy was probably the most humble, self-less, hardest worker, quiet and funny of all us cousins in our generation. I can't believe that we had him taken away from our ʻOhana like this. In such a cowardly way, by this dishonorable U.S. Navy soldier! Only weakness I see in that... I will do all I can to bring Vince the justice he deserves and some type of closure for our whole family." -Sam Kapoi.
Vince grew up in Waiʻanae, graduated from Kamehameha Schools - Kapālama Campus and his last place of employment was at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard.
All funds raised is for his Wife in this trying time, since Vince was the main source of income, and was taken away instantly. This will give her some type of stability until things get more stable.
Vince's family seeks justice of this senseless act of violence and expects answers from the U.S. Government.
