In addition, Richard’s extended Ohana (Family in Hawaiian), numbers in the thousands now because the search for him brought us all together.
We wish to thank all of you that have helped in any way to find Richard, when we were unsure of his whereabouts and now that we have focused the search in the ocean. You’ve contributed your time, financially, shared your miles, loaned equipment, vessels, some of you have been injured on the searches and in many other ways. We are overwhelmed by the number of good, solid people that there are in the world and we count ourselves as blessed. We sincerely appreciate everything and we’re glad to count you in as our Ohana.
We will have 2 Memorials/Celebrations of Life. One on August 27th from 12-5 at Long Branch in Half Moon Bay, CA. The other will be at Alii Beach Park in Haleiwa Hawaii on September 10th from 12-5.
In Lieu of Flowers, a donation can be made in Richard’s name to: The Tony Hawk Foundation God bless you all and God bless Richard
