Today Friday July 9th, Mayor Gualberto "Wally" Nunez, Deputy Mayor Dianeli Aranda and the San Pedro Town Council were honored to be invited by the Hol Chan Marine reserve for offical vessel launch & tribute commemorating the life of their friend and colleague Killian James Azueta. May his name continue on the waters he loved very much
On Friday, July 9th, the Hol Chan Marine Reserve honored the life of one of their own, colleague Killian James Azueta, who unfortunately passed away in 2020. The marine reserve management held a special memorial in the presence of Killian’s family and friends ending the event with the launch of a patrol boat named ‘Gordo’ in memory of Hol Chan’s former park ranger.
The boat will bear a placard with Killian’s picture. The Hol Chan group believes this is a way to keep him sailing as Killian was a lover of the sea, his daughter, family, friends, and community. Hol Chan’s Chairman Ian Pou gave the welcome remarks opening the special event. Pou noted that it took days of preparation, and to finally hold the event was a testament of kindness they share with everyone. “We welcome the Azueta family and friends and thank them for allowing us to make this recognition,” Pou said.Click here to read the rest of the article in the San Pedro Sun
