Prominent local Hawaii leader gets 24-hour vigil

HONOLULU (AP) - Hundreds of friends and family are expected to honor a prominent local Hawaii leader with a 24-hour vigil.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported Wednesday that the vigil for Kenny Brown will start midday Thursday and end midday Friday.

Brown died last month. He was 94.

Brown has ties to Hawaiian royalty as the great-grandson of a member of King Kamehameha III's court. Brown was also a two-term state senator who served additionally as chairman of the East-West Center, Bishop Museum and the Hawaii Community Development Authority.

The vigil open to the public is expected to include discussions on topics that interested Brown. The discussions will run in 3-hour blocks.

The topics include everything from the tourism industry to health and wellness.

It will also include personal remembrances.
