A loving husband, caring Dad, fun grandfather, a cool brother and uncle and a good friend, Alvin died at 82 on September 16, 2018. Although greatly missed, he leaves a treasure box of memories, and lessons in determination and courage.

He served in the Air Force, and loyally worked for Pan Am for 29 years. In retirement, he worked with “fun, young people” at the City & County DMV. For over 10 years, Alvin volunteered as an Assistant Coach for the Manoa “Paniolo’s” pop warner football program. He attended his grandchildren’s sports games, recitals, and school events and loved golfing with his wife, friends and family. He is survived by his wife, Jane Yasui, son Michael (Kathy) Yasui, daughter Lori Ann (Shawn) Ouchi, grandchildren Shari Lynn, Landon, Kiana and Kristyn, and brother Dr. Byron Yasui.
