I remember seeing him about a year or so ago at Longs Drugs in Windward Shopping Center (he was looking for batteries for his remote control…. He said, “Do you know how old I am now?” And I replied, “no, how old you now Reverend?”. Rev Aoki then said, “I’m 93 years old now! …and you know, what!?”…and I said, “no, what?” and Reverend Aoki said, “AND I SURE FEEL like 93!”..My daughter and I just smiled and that was the last time I saw him.

He was such a fun, calm, loving, caring gentle soul. I will miss him..He is truly an amazing man. One person that I will never forget. He has left a deep impression in my heart and mind! Aloha Reverend Aoki!

Aoki. He is one of the few professors that I had at UH that I still remember. I had him for his World Religions course back in 1966. I’ll never forget the day in class when one of the students challenged Rev. Aoki about the Catholic church, saying that “isn’t it just a religion of old women and children.” I am a Catholic, but the defense of the Catholic church that Rev. Aoki gave over the next 15 minutes was one of the best I have ever heard. Wish I had a tape recorder with me that day.
Aloha and Mahalo Rev. Aoki.
