Manuel Kanaka”o”Kai Kepilino, 52, of Ewa Beach was called home to heaven on March 3, 2019 in Las Vegas, NV.
Manny was born in Honolulu, Hawaii to Flora Kepilino and Ira Kepilino on August 5, 1966.
He was a graduate of Campbell High School.
On April 8, 2013 he vowed to Colette Kepilino 2 hearts 1 soul.
He was employed with Southern wine for 15 years, was well loved and also received heroic awards along the way.
He was very active in the Volkswagen and Motorcycle community and often enjoyed attending events and charities. He was the President of the Island Pride VW club, oh how he loved his Green Machine! & How bout dem boyz?!?
He was so gifted with many talents that included, restoring classic vehicles, & painting so precisely we could watch him paint for hours, but the best gift of all was his ability to help others in need and had a mana effect even on the ones that didn’t have a voice. Manny was the life of every party and could make people laugh uncontrollably. He is and always will be DA MAN!
He is survived by: Wife Colette Kepilino, Mother Flora Kepilino, Father Ira Kepilino, Thomas Cleaver, Stepchildren, Grandchildren, Siblings, Family, & Friends
I am a close friend to Colette...I was never given the opportunity to meet Manny but felt his love within Colette and supported his position in her life! Please Manny watch over her and the family and know you are truly a legend. Rest in Peace until you meet in heaven....
