September 7, 2018 04:01 pm

Kalihi Ari West, 26, passed away on Wednesday, August 29, 2018 after injuries sustained in a car accident.

Kalihi was born in Santa Rosa, California on November 24, 1991. She was a devoted mother to her five year old daughter, Laila and worked at Perdue Farms. A zealous worker, Kalihi had aspirations to one day open a restaurant and bar in an atmosphere where people could enjoy football and fellowship as much as she did. She had a care-free personality and always spoke her mind leaving you knowing exactly where you stood with her. Kalihi’s fierce longing to be loved and passion for loving others will infinitely live in the hearts of her daughter, family, and friends until the end of time.

She was preceded in death by her paternal grandparents, Wanda Lou and Cornelius Salvador Kirk.

Kalihi’s memory will forever be treasured by her adoring daughter, Laila; loving husband, Henry West; mother, Jennifer Lloyd; father and stepmother, Ira W. Kirk and Beth Rogers; siblings, Sierra Peduzzi, Branden Ira Kirk, AzuRyan Fox, Jazzy and Zafara; maternal grandparents, Joan and Robert Mongiello and Mary and John Rogers; and several aunts, uncles, and extended family members.

Her family will be having a celebration of her life at a later date.

McCullough Funeral Home and Crematory has the privilege of being entrusted with Mrs. West’s arrangements.
