August 19, 1970 - September 27, 2020
Pablo A. Buckingham obituary “Happy Aloha Friday!” Pablo waited all week to say this with lots of love to his family and friends throughout the world each weekend; this was his way of spreading his aloha. Pablo A. Buckingham, age 50 (b. 1970), battled with meningitis over 2 months, and then passed away in my arms, his loving wife Satsuki, on Sep. 27, 2020 while being in comfortable care of the best staff at Navian Hawaii, Kailua House in Oahu. He was born in California to Paul and Ligia and grew up with his little sister, Lizzie in Utah and Hawaii. After completing a proselyting mission and college, he served in the Air Force and was made Captain before his honorable discharge. He was a loving father for Teo, Tui, and Vailoa, and enjoyed being a grandfather to Noa. While stationed in Okinawa, Japan, we fell in love and got married. We moved back to Hawaii to live with family and he was enjoying working at the University of Hawaii. Pablo was a remarkably loving, caring, positive and funny guy all his life. He was the #1 cheerleader for his family and friends and did anything and everything to make them laugh and happy. He touched so many of our lives with his smile, his voice, his words of wisdom, his hugs, his friendship, and his spirit of Aloha is forever etched in our hearts. He had said to me that at his funeral, “it’s ok to cry, but after that, talk story, laugh out loud, make sure to put on music non-stop and enjoy eating lots of ono grinds” and celebrate his life with all the people he loved. Pablo will be interred at Kaneohe VA cemetery on 19 Oct 2020 at 14:00. Due to COVID 19, people present at the site will be limited; for those who want to view the funeral live, a streaming option will be available. Please contact us for more details surrounding his funeral. Mahalo and Aloha Satsuki & Buckingham Ohana
