An Aloha Farewell (A Hui Hou)

To honor 83 years of life is a privilege many are not afforded. Raymond Joseph Komine was born in Hilo, Hawaii in 1934 as a fraternal twin to his brother Ronald.  His family consisted of his parents, older siblings Howard, Robert, and Sister Grace.  His life in Hilo with his family was humble, and in 1960 he found himself in sunny California.  All but brother Ronald have since departed this earth. 

Raymond lead a very busy and active lifestyle.  In 1968, his love of golf inspired him to found Hawaii Golfers of Orange County and he gave several years of service to the club as Vice President, Historian, and Tournament Chair.  The most notable years of his career were spent at St. Mary’s Medical Center as a Food Service Director, where he took pride in offering top notch food choices to patients, staff members, and nuns and priests who lived on the property.   Raymond's passion for food also benefited his family; he was always in the center of the kitchen making sure every part of the meal was cooked with love and perfect seasoning!  

Raymond had the heart of a servant, and always encouraged his family to take care of each other no matter the circumstance.  He was a quiet, humble giant who was respected by all who knew him.

However, his greatest joys in life were found in his family.  He is survived by his wife of 49 years, Renee Komine.  Their most precious memories are of time spent together on the golf course, spending time with their daughter Felicia and son in law James, and being active grandparents to their grandchildren, Madison and Preston.

His family meant the world to him; he was always keeping himself busy with things to fix, items to organize, and meals to cook.  And his family always, always, always wanted him around!

 
His life has been full of love, laughter, and living with true ALOHA spirit to the fullest. Now, it is time for him to rest. Please help his family honor him by donating to this fund for a service and celebration that will bring warmth to the hearts of all who love and cherish him.

Hele on, Raymond.  A hui hou (until we meet again).

Service and Celebration information will follow soon.
