Obituary for Anthony Duwayne Hanalei Peters
Anthony Hanalei Peters, 70, went home to our heavenly father on Sunday, November 5, 2017 at Maui Memorial Medical Center. He was born and raised in Lahaina and was the son of Hank and Cecilia Peters. He leaves his wife of 49 years, Yvonne “Momi”; his two daughters, Francine “Lani” (Sione Maile) Moala, Cherie (Bobby) Brown; 9 grandchildren, Angela, Isaac, and Talia Filikitonga-Peters, Sean and Sosaia Moala, Shanon and Toni-Ann (deceased) Peters, Tasi and Natasha Lepetia-Peters; 9 great grandchildren, Leila, Hanalei, Nick, Kaylah, Kaydon, Legend, Tevai, Terina and Tiara; sisters, Lorraine “Lovey” Yoshimoto, Cherie Rooks; his brothers, Earl (Patty) Nishiyama, Arthur Peters, Wendell (Sonia) Peters; and many nieces and nephews.
Hanalei loved and worshipped our Heavenly Father and was a member of the King’s Chapel of Lahaina. He worked at the Kaanapali Beach Hotel for over 40 years, and was active with union activities, supported his co-workers and worked closely with management. He was also involved with the King Kamehameha parade – specifically with the Pa’u riders and the horses. As Hanalei would say, his favorite memory would be with his family in the mountains with his horses.
A celebration of his life will be held at Norman’s Mortuary on Friday, November 17th, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., continuing on Saturday, November 18th, at Norman’s Mortuary from 10:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.; burial will follow at 2:00 p.m.
