HONOLULU (December 23, 2016) - GOP State Chair Fritz Rohlfing released the following statement regarding the passing of former State Representative and former Director of the State Office of Veterans' Services Mark Moses.
“The Hawaii Republican Party deeply mourns the passing of former State Representative and former Director of the State Office of Veterans' Services Mark Moses."
"An invaluable representative of his West Oahu district, Rep. Moses succumbed to a lengthy illness with his family by his side. He was instrumental in lobbying for, passing legislation on, and having the foresight (together with others in the Legislature) to bring to fruition the many state buildings in Kapolei today, including the Kapolei Elementary, Middle, and High Schools, and the Kapolei Library."
"A retired Marine Corps officer, Mark was first elected to the Hawaii House of Representatives in 1996. He represented a wide swath of West Oahu, including parts of Ewa, Kapolei, and Makakilo; an area now distributed among several state representatives due to population increases."
"A tireless volunteer, Mark served with distinction as a member of the Hawaii Republican Party State Committee, and most recently as the Chairman of the Issues, Program, Platform/Resolutions Committee."
"Mark leaves behind his wife, Suk, and children Michelle, James, Michael, Matthew, Madalyn, and Mitchell. Mark's son Jon predeceased him."
"A graveside service open to the public for Rep. Moses is scheduled for Tuesday, December 27 at 1:00 PM at the Veterans' Cemetery in Kaneohe. Plans for a memorial service are pending."
"We are profoundly grateful for Mark's faithful service to our nation, our state, and our Party. He will be deeply missed."
