Juniom Acol asked that his cremated remains be scattered over the ocean at Keahou Beach Harbor in Kona, Hawaii. This beach harbor is a favorite fishing and diving spot where the family spends most of their time. A separate Memorial for the spreading of his ashes will be planned for a later time and we will share details once we can confirm dates with his children and grandchildren.
