Arce, Steven/ Esteban

L to R: Anita & Esteban w/ Dean's parents

Dean’s maternal grandfather, Estaban Arce, emigrated from the Philippines to the Hawaiian islands as a young man.  He married Helen Kang in September, 1933 and their daughter (Dean’s mother) was born in 1934.  The marriage dissolved about 5-months later.  Esteban then married Anita Naeoli and settled on Molokai where they raised a large family.  He is shown above with Anita and Dean’s parents.

Molokai-GrandmaSteven, as he was later known, was born on 23 December 1910 (Philippines) and died on 24 Jan 1984 in Molokai where he is also buried.  He died before I ever met Dean.  Anita recently died on 5 October 2011 and is buried there as well.  She is shown at right with Dean’s mother in 2007.
