KIRK ELLIOTT KALANIKUHONUA NAHALE On Friday, September 1, 2017, Kirk peacefully passed away at the age of 55. Kirk was a graduate of Saint Louis High School’s class of 1980. Kirk was employed by KITV as a television technician for over 20 years. But holding one job wasn’t enough for Kirk, he also worked for Costco, having been one of the first employees of the Salt Lake location. In 1993, Kirk along with his brother and brother in law, decided to go into the restaurant business and opened Kanak Attack. In 2000, Kirk had the opportunity to branch out on his own and opened Kanak Attack Two with his wife. After working at KITV for over 20 years, health issues forced Kirk into early retirement. Throughout his illness, Kirk kept a positive attitude, and no matter how he really felt, always replied "top shape" when asked how he was. Kirk will forever be remembered for his infectious smile, his generous heart and his crazy sense of humor. Kirk will be tremendously missed by all who knew and loved him. Survived by his wife Dian; son Blaine; fur babies Aki, Yuki, and Bella; brothers Keith, Jeffrey (Cyn), Guy (Patty); and sister Donni Rae (Ronald). Services to be held on Sunday, September 24, 2017 at Diamond Head Memorial. Visitation 5PM – 6:30PM, services at 6:30PM. Kirk will be laid to rest at Diamond Head Memorial on Monday, September 25, 2017 at 10:30AM.
