Gene Wilkie died in a plane crash near Payette, ID on June 17. Gene was a fixture at Honolulu Airport for being the “go to guy” on anything aviation and maintenance. Most remember all his aviation and motorcycle projects in his two T Hangars facing the runways. His wife Emi also was a pilot and changed vocation later to a nurse. She lives in Payette and is currently monitoring Gene’s email for condolences
A lot of people in Hawaii aviation knew Gene Wilkie.
There will be a Celebration of Life for Gene at Island Seaplane Services base, 85 Lagoon Drive–backside of HNL, on August 5 @ 1730 (5:30PM). His wife Emi will be there. Please pass the word.
To carry out Gene’s intention (see picture), Celebration of Life in HAWAII will be a ”Potluck & BYOB are welcomed” event.
