Wayne Matsui

Dec. 28, 1986 – Sept. 24, 2020

Wayne Rikio Matsui Jr., 33 of Wailuku peacefully passed away on Sept. 23, 2020 at Maui Memorial Medical Center. He was born in Wailuku on Dec. 28, 1986 to Wayne Matsui Sr. and Leimamo Kekiwi.

Riki was a loving son, nephew, cousin and devoted father. He worked for Shade Solutions Maui as a Window Covering Installer. He enjoyed music, songwriting, singing, fishing, drawing, reading his bible and learning scriptures. Most of all, he loved spending time with his daughter. He was an amazing soul, a humble and respectful man. He never had anything bad to say about anyone and always had love for everyone he came into contact with. His life was taken too soon and unexpectedly, but we find comfort knowing he’s in better place. He is loved and will be deeply missed by his family, friends and those who knew him.

On behalf of the Kekiwi-Matsui Ohana, we greatly appreciate your love and prayers.

Private services will be held at Norman’s Mortuary.
