SUE, THE LOVING DAUGHTER
Sue's father, the late David Keohokapu, was a career longshoreman and a proud member of the ILWU. David Keohokapu was also an active member of his community and a distinguished member of the Royal Hawaiian Guard. The values of the Guard - to respect, to seek knowledge and to work in harmony-were instilled in Sue at a very young age. These same values are now being passed on to Sue's own children.
Sue's mother, Patricia, was a longtime Hilo Hospital nurse and a member of the HGEA. Now retired, Patricia is an avid volunteer. She donates her lovely homemade quilts to the elderly residents at Hilo Life Care Center. Watching her mother work hard in and out of the home developed a strong work ethic in Sue. "Tūtū Pat" lives with Sue and her family in Panaʻewa and is a blessing to the entire Lee Loy ʻohana!
SUE, THE DEVOTED WIFE AND MOTHER
Sue currently lives in Panaʻewa with her husband, Ian, their three children and her mother, Tūtū Pat. Ian is a detective with the Hawaiʻi County Police Department and has served for over twenty years.
Like many other wives and mothers, Sue manages her time in order to work in and out of the home. Sue understands the struggles of daily living; making ends meet, stretching the household dollar, spending quality time with each child, caring for an elderly parent and supporting one's spouse. Sue knows. She will work hard for working families.
