JON KEONE FUJIMOTO

Age 59, passed away in Aiea on September 21, 2020. He lived a full life; with no regrets. “Work hard and play hard” was his motto.
Born in Honolulu on July 8, 1961, Jon attended Kaimuki High School. After graduating in 1979, he attended Honolulu Community College and received a degree in Aviation Maintenance Technology.
Jon went on to work as an aircraft mechanic at United Airlines for 35 years. Jon and his co-workers enjoyed a close friendship, sharing so many interesting and funny experiences. Travel was in his blood, as he and his family frequented Japan and many inter-island and mainland destinations.
One of Jon’s favorite activities was going hunting twice a year with his buddies. They would bring back their catch, have barbecues, and talk story about their adventures.
Jon treasured his family. He is survived by his wife Dale; sons Jonathan Fujimoto and Kevin (Patricia) Tanaka; mother Daisy; brother Jay (Gwen); sisters Jo Ann Fujimoto and Jade (Russell) Yasaka; and nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by father James T. and brother James K. Private services to be held.
