Beth Chapman’s Family Will Hold ‘Hawaiian Style’ Memorial in Waikiki06/29/2019
Beth Chapman‘s family is paying tribute to her with a “true Hawaiian style” service.
Dog the Bounty Hunter‘s late wife – who sadly passed away earlier this week at the age of 51 after battling throat cancer – will be honored with an oceanfront gathering at Fort DeRussy Beach on Saturday (June 29) at 2 p.m. in Waikiki, Hawaii.
“Cecily and Lyssa Chapman invite the public to join the Chapman ʻOhana (family) for a gathering to honor Beth Chapmanʻs life,” a rep for the family told People. “Beth had two homes — Hawai’i and Colorado. ‘I love Hawai’i the most,’ she said, so she will be sent off in true Hawaiian style, with aloha.”
Beth Chapman will receive a “Hawaiian ʻOli (chant), prayer, followed by a paddle out with family and friends.”
Guests are “asked to bring ocean-friendly loose flowers, and please no leis (the strings can be harmful to ocean life).”
“Those wishing to post photos and videos are asked to tag with #alohaoemrsdog,” the rep added. “‘Oe means ‘you’ in Hawaiian. It is customary to say, ‘Aloha ‘Oe’ especially when saying farewell. There is a song by the same name, which Hawaiians often sing at the end of a party, funerals, or when people are leaving the islands.”
Dog the Bounty Hunter is also “finalizing plans for a memorial service in Colorado, and details will be announced shortly.”
