On Friday, February 7, 2014, Friends of the Future Founder and Board Chair Kenneth Francis Kamuokalani Brown passed away at his Diamond Head home. During his 94 years, he was many things to many people ~ a talented architect, a political leader, a patron of the arts, a cultural resource, a businessman, a convenor of diverse groups, a mentor, and a friend.
His quiet, constant encouragement served as a foundation and compass for hundreds of today's leaders. Each of us who was privileged to spend time with him has been deeply impacted by his wisdom, vision and dedication to the land, the people and the planet.
We extend our gratitude and aloha to Mr. Brown's wife, Joan, and his entire 'ohana; they served as the foundation for his life of service.
