Taps: Douglas Silva

June 20, 2019

Douglas Imaikalani Gusmao Silva, 80, of Waimanalo, Hawaii, passed away on May 2, 2019. He was born to Mary Kame’eualani (Karratti) and Alfred Gusmao Silva on June 29, 1938, in Koloa, Kaua’i. Doug grew up on the windward side of O’ahu, graduating from Castle High School in 1957, and serving in the U.S. Army National Guard before becoming an architect by trade.

An avid bird hunter and incredible cook, he also had a keen eye for design. After suffering a major stroke in 1997, he learned to adjust to life with his disability, yet he never lost his headstrong spirit.

He is survived by his daughters, D. Kanani Silva and Karla K. (Travis Park) Silva-Park; his grandchildren, Israel P. Santana, Keahe L. Silva and L. Kilinahe O. Park; his sisters Audrey P. Wagner, Maileann Stone and Dina Capra; and many cousins, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.

Celebration of Life to be held on Saturday, June 29, 2019, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Hale A’o at Windward Community College.

Retiree News extends heartfelt sympathy to his family and friends.
