In loving memory of Charlie Keating IV 2/26/1985 - 5/3/2016
The bone shaka logo has grown to represent the fighting spirit of Charlie as the Aloha Warrior.
On May 3rd, 2016 the family, friends, and community that loved Charlie changed forever with the news of his passing in Iraq. But on that day a new bond was forged, on that day a community, City, State, and Nation embraced a fallen brother and a family grieving for the unthinkable loss. The loss of a Husband, Son, Nephew, Cousin, Friend, & Teammate.
Often times it is through tragedy we find joy, and through love we find comfort. As we reflect on a year of mourning we find strength in knowing that the memory of Charlie and his actions live on in the Community that has embraced our Family and the overwhelming love and support you have shown us.
It is that love and support that has driven us to preserve the legacy of Charlie in a way that will honor him for many years to come.
