Obituary for Rodney Kamahuluae Shinkichi Hu

Rodney “Boy” Kamahuluae Shinkichi Hu passed in peace Saturday, May 2, 2020 at the age of 45. Rodney is survived by his wife, Mary Jane; his children, Rodney Jr. and Kealohi; his parents, Rodney and Amy; his siblings, Debbie Hu-Alejandro, Geri Hu-Garibay and Francine Hu-Olson; and his many nieces and nephews.

Rodney “Boy” was an incredible role model within his community. He loved deeply, cared whole-heartedly and pursued passionately. O’hana meant everything to him and he welcomed everyone with open arms.
He was a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a friend, a coach, a mentor, a student and a sensei.

Rodney Hu’s Goju Karate was a testament to his life’s focus and hard work. His Karate Dojo was his vision to empower both boys and girls/men and women to thrive through self discipline and by encouraging them to confidently navigate life circumstances. He was a shelter for those without and a father to the fatherless. He provided belonging, a place to call home and a fresh perspective of overcoming obstacles. He loved his students like his own.

His smile was contagious, his laughter brought comfort, and his voice provoked security.
He was strong, intentional, fierce, and relentless. His leadership encouraged growth; his teaching inspired creativity; his presence demanded respect. His strength was to be feared, but it was his love that brought his O’hana together.
He will be most remembered for his love for his wife and children, his family, his friends and students. Music moved his soul and food encouraged conversation and fellowship. He danced because his heart experienced much joy.
He was a PROUD Hawaiian.
