Aloha Kalihi Palama Hawaiian Civic Club Members,

It is with heavy heart that we advise you of the passing of Dexter Soares, the second elected president of the Kalihi Palama HCC, on April 22, 2021.

He and our first president, Aunty Sue Pine, led us through our first 40 years. Loving, caring, committed, they always looked after our club and members.

Even in recent years, Dexter would call with a word of encouragement and just to see how everyone was doing. He also participated in our cultural exhibits at ‘Iolani Palace events. He was a master Ipu craftsman.

Please remember Dexter and his family in your prayers. Condolences may be expressed at  DexterKealaSoaresMemorial@gmail.com. Private services were held.

Aloha mai kakou:

On this my father’s 69th birthday, it is with a very heavy heart that I post his memorial announcement. I am Dexter’s younger daughter Steph K SK, and I will keep Dad’s Facebook account active for public remembrances, memories and the like. Please feel free to talk to Dad as you will.

Please direct any DMs or your private messages to my father and our family to DexterKealaSoaresMemorial@gmail.com.

Thank you all for being a part of my father’s extended ‘ohana. On behalf of my Mother and my Sister, we thank you for your warmth.

Ke Akua Pu,
