October 20, 1937 – April 5, 2019
The following was written by Ernest’s sister, a physician, and shared with permission of Ernest’s husband, Don Conover (with minor edits to form): On the morning of April 4, 2019, Ernest suffered a massive hemorrhagic stroke (i.e. he bled into his brain) and entered into a deep coma. He passed peacefully the next day at the Queen’s Medical Center Neuro ICU on April 5, 2019. He will be cremated, and there will be a celebration of life service sometime in mid-June or July.
The members of Lima Kokua wish to extend our most sincere and heartfelt affection to the Harada-Conover ohana. Ernest was loved, and his absence is keenly felt. Rest in Peace, Ernest.
