A memorial service will be held in the courtyard at Honolulu Hale on March 3 for former Mayor Frank Fasi.
Fasi, 89, died late Wednesday of natural causes.
“I’m happy to report that the Fasi family has taken me up on my offer to hold a memorial service for Mayor Fasi at Honolulu Hale,” Mayor Mufi Hannemann said in a release. “We want to provide a fitting tribute to Mayor Fasi, who left such a lasting imprint on our city. We’re working closely with the Fasi ohana to make sure this memorial program meets with their wishes.”
Details of the service, including the time, have not yet been finalized.
Hannemann has ordered flags at all city buildings to be flown at half-staff through the conclusion of the memorial service to honor Fasi’s memory.
Black bunting has been draped across the main entrance to Honolulu Hale to signify the city is in mourning.
