Condolences to the family and friends of longtime HAWAII broadcaster and newsman WILLIAM GORDON "BILL" DAHLE, who THE STAR ADVERTISER reports died at his home SATURDAY. He was 69.
"For 40 years, KAUAI residents woke six days a week to DAHLE's familiar baritone on KUAI Radio, the ELEELE station of which he was a part owner," writes THE S-A. "His voice was known to radio listeners across the state for his broadcasts on statewide news networks."
"BILL was a consummate newsman, a man of integrity and an all-around great person with an amazing sense of humor," said KAUAI Mayor BERNARD CARVALHO. "KAUAI was blessed to have him and we will miss him greatly. My deepest sympathies go out to his family and all who knew and loved him. He truly left a mark on our community."
