Mark Takai was not only a letterman for the University of Hawaii, but later a true champion for the people of Hawaii. RIP Brother

He was a big supporter of UH athletics. He will be missed in many different ways.

On the lighter side, he continuously denied being the mascot:

He was ASUH President at the time the marshmallow man was unveiled. He was a good sport about it. Devoted his life to public service. RIP.

Congressman Takai paid respects to my family when my mother passed away 2 years ago....He announced his health problems in May...gone July....way too young. :(
