John Lot Kaulukou, what an exciting life, 1917.

JUDGE JOHN L. KAULUKOU PASSES ON.

After a sickness of a few weeks ago, Judge John L. Kaulukou grew weary of this life, in the hospital at Kealakekua, on this past Saturday, and Judge Kaulukou was laid to rest for all times at his land of birth.

He was in the hospital for an entire month [??? ka noho ana o aku o kona kino lepo maka ilina,] because of a pain in his leg, under the medical care of Dr. H. L. Ross, the government doctor there; and the knowledge of the doctor could not save his life, until he left this world on that day indicated above.

The Judge left behind his widow, Mrs. Susie Kaulukou, and three sons, Abraham G. Kaulukou, the secretary of Kauai County; Lot Kalani Kaulukou, known also as Lot Sebastian, famed for dancing and living in lands afar; and John L. Kaulukou Jr; along with a large family and many friends, grieving with regret for him.

His Birth

Judge John L. Kaulukou was born at Keauhou, North Kona, Hawaii, on the 1st of June, in the year 1841, therefore, he lived for sixty-seven years and a day, before he left this life of hardships. His father was a Spaniard [Paniolo] and his wife was a Hawaiian, therefore he is also called a hapa Paniolo.

In the younger days of Judge Kaulukou’s life, he was orphaned by his parents leaving this life early, so the responsibility transferred upon his grandfather to educate him; the first step taken to raise him until he became an important giant of the land in the days of the monarchy of Hawaii nei.

He had been well known in local aquatic circles while at Punahou, where he received his prep school training.
