Bonifacio "Benny" Roylo
Born on August 17, 1933 to Guadalupe and Montano Roylo, Benny was the youngest of 4 boys. He graduated from Waialua High School in 1952, where he excelled at basketball, and especially track for which he won an OIA championship. He spent a brief time in the Army, married his high school sweetheart, Winona Okamoto, and had three children. He worked as a carpenter at Pearl Harbor for most of his career. Divorced, he settled in with his long-time companion, Lois Pacolba, and was often seen bicycling in Waialua, greeting everyone with a smile and a friendly remark. He made the best pickled mango that he generously gave to friends and family. With his gentle nature, sense of humor and quick wit he always had a funny comment that could defuse any potential problem. He passed away peacefully at home on March 24, 2022.
