Flags to fly at half-staff in remembrance of former Senator Brown


HONOLULU – As a mark of respect for the memory of former state Sen. Kenneth Francis Kamuokalani Brown, Gov. Neil Abercrombie has ordered that the flags of the United States and State of Hawaii shall be flown at half-staff at all state offices and agencies, as well as the Hawaii National Guard, from sunrise to sunset on Monday, Feb. 17, 2014, the day of his memorial service. He died last week at age 94.

“Kenneth Brown was more than a political leader, he was a business and cultural leader with a love for Hawaii that helped shape this state,” Gov. Abercrombie said. “His inspiration will be missed.”

Born in Honolulu, Sen. Brown served in the state Senate from 1968 to 1974 and as special assistant under the late Gov. John A. Burns. A trained architect and successful businessman, he was also a part of several prominent boards and committees throughout his life, and is a former chairman of the Bishop Museum, East-West Center, Hawaii Community Development Authority, Hawaii Canada Cup, Hawaiian Open, Oceanic Cablevision, Mauna Lani Resort, and most recently, The Queen’s Health Systems.

    he was more than a Senator. A warm loving family man who knew Hawaii. Think Mauna Lani as one of his projects. Aloha oe Mr. Brown
