Honoring a Fallen Comrade
Hundreds flooded Kalaliana`ole Hall Saturday to pay their final respects to fallen Honolulu police officer and Molokai boy Eric Fontes.
“Molokai is Eric’s hometown and ohana,” said Honolulu Police Chief Louis Kealoha. “The community instilled the integrity and values he carried with him.”
He said Fontes was “admired by many for his strong conviction and belief,” and voted most inspirational in his recruit class.
Gov. Abercrombie sent his condolences, saying in a letter, Fontes “demonstrated the best principals of the beloved people of Molokai.”
