On this blessed holy Sunday, the Tony Young Memorial Dedication was truly an emotional event for all. Attended by Tony Jr. and daughter, and Lei (Tony’s sister) and Jeff, and the Young Ohana. Bruddahs and sistahs were here since sunrise, and waited especially for this memorial dedication. Tony Young’s Power-on crew was well represented. Stuart of Kustom 1 Warehouse of Santa Fe Springs, CA sold parts w/100% of proceeds towards the Tony Young Fund. Scooter Alley Moped crew came in droves. Glenn Nomura of 706 Ewa Beach VW Club presented a presento and an envelope. Timmy Johnson of Westside Ka’a Hui Braddahood donated $100. Spyda (close personal friend), Scottie, Roy (Pres., VVWCoH), and Todd (Pres., VWCoH) delivered their touching personal condolences. Among other donators were Gary & Debbie Heya; Dean Sheldon; Richard Carvalho; Leo & Brenda Bringas; Billy & Sally Medeiros; Rich & Francine Neitzel; Glenn & Marina Yahiku; Aka Tamashiro; and others who did not sign-in, but gave generously. $1,366.26 was collected and immediately given to the Young Ohana for the Tony Young Fund.
Lei thank all for their generosity and friendship, and was in awe of Tony’s VW life. Tony Jr. was taken aback and emotional in the outpouring, and yet thank all.
