Taps: Juan P. Lorenzo Jr.

May 16, 2019

On Monday, April 15, 2019, our beloved “Papa” Juan P. Lorenzo Jr. passed away at home at the age of 68.  He was born on Nov. 3, 1950 in Lihue, and was a retiree of both Kauai Electric and Kauai Island Utility Cooperative and the Hawaii Air National Guard.

In his younger years, he was an amateur radio enthusiast and under the call sign KH6JJC, chased contacts with other “hams” around the world. Later, he exchanged his radio for a camera, and QSL cards were replaced with photographs. He loved taking pictures of gentle nature.

He was preceded in death by father Juan P. Lorenzo Sr. and mother Tranquilina “Helen” Lorenzo.

He is survived by wife Gail, children Celeste (Aleks Andrews) Lorenzo, Bradley Nelmida and Meagan (Arthur) Rice, five grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, brother Melvin (Cindee) Lorenzo, sister Cynthia (Dan) Albosta, and several nieces, nephews and cousins.

A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, May 18, at Garden Island Mortuary, with viewing from 9 a.m. and services at 11 a.m.

Garden Island Mortuary is assisting the family with arrangements.

Thanks to Vern Nakasone for passing this information to Retiree News.
