Bill Lui-Kwan was a free spirit surfer. He lived his life uncomplicated and unfettered. He was always willing to lend a helping hand and give you the shirt off his back if you needed it.

He was an ambassador of the Aloha Spirit. He made friends easily. He shared stories, played ukulele and didgeridoo, and never missed a sunset.

Surfing was like breathing to Bill. He lived to surf and rode many waves with great style across the Hawaiian Islands and in Indonesia. He loved meeting new people through surfing.

Bill loved his extended family, especially the gatherings and visiting with the elders. He would bring them their favorite plate lunches or weed their yards, whatever they needed.

Bill is survived by his sister PennyAnne Spangler (Eric/Kiki), his nieces Kainoelani, Wailana, and Kianiwai (Calvin Jones) Spangler.
