Mayor Victorino expresses condolences on the passing of former Hawaii County Mayor Billy Kenoi

My wife Joycelyn and I are heartbroken to learn of the passing of our dear friend Billy Kenoi today. His death leaves a void that will never be filled. Anyone who experienced his intelligence and wit, whether expressed in pidgin, Hawaiian, or perfect English, received a priceless gift of island wisdom wrapped in local-style humor. 

Mostly we will remember his great heart, his giving spirit and his service to the people of Hawaii County and the entire state of Hawaii. His optimism and confidence will live on through his favorite saying, “No such thing as no can. Always can. The only question is how can.” 

Our deepest condolences to his wife Takako, their ‘ohana and to everyone who was blessed to have known him.
