So sorry for your loss. Viliamu was in art class with me at Aiea High...Mr. Dow's class. 😊 I remember him to be a little shy and liked to tease. A very sweet soul. He will be missed. Again, my heart felt condolences to you and the ohana. Tevie

Uncle Amu was my mom's (Tili) younger brother and more like a father figure for me. I remember as soon as I was old enough to play pop Warner football he made sure me and cousin Danny signed up. It was his passion to see us play and to teach us our mistakes off the field. He was an all star player at Aiea high school and
still till this day I run into some people that remember's him. I still remember that evening me, uncle Funky , uncle On'e and Danny went to the airport to see uncle Amu, Aunt Laina and the 4 girls then off as they were moving to Missouri. That had to be the saddest time ever.. We were all crying like babies. Sleep overs at uncle Amu's was a tradition for us and aunt Laina's cooking sealed the deal. There soooo many good memories of uncle Amu to share. He truly was the leader of our Family and I'm blessed to have had an uncle like him, Our true family Chief! Rest in love uncle Amu, Alofa atu!

I was very fortunate to be Tatiana's volleyball coach at William Chrisman High School and I always enjoyed watching how loving the entire Letuli family was to everyone who was fortunate enough to know them. They are the epitome of the word FAMILY. I know that you are all mourning the loss of your patriarch, but rejoicing that you will see him again in Heaven. Prayers and love to all of you.

Our mothers were sisters. I haven't still accept that Viliamu passed away. These last few years he started to really travel in spite of difficulty with health issues. He came home he continued his message of love to Our Heavenly Father, loyalty of cultural belief in family and mostly our children. With his phone he continued his teaching his messages til the angels came. Our family sincere condolences to Liane and family. Viliamu Letuli took the role of his parents for he was an obedient son. Became a husband and a father and was blessed with his family. You've done your job here on earth. Go home now and rest. Alofa tele atu

Amu and I grew up together. He is and always will be my best friend and my Rock. We both played football and basketball for Aiea and I couldn’t ask for a better teammate. We’ve had a period of disconnection but thanks to smart phones we’ve reconnected not with Amu but with my family. Thank you Amu for being the person that you are. I’m still in disbelief and saddened. With all my love to the entire family my sincere condolences. Love Viliamu

Many memories of Christman volleyball and football games. Bill was a special person to us. Still remember his invitation to the Island BBQ festivities at McCoy park and I said 'But we are white people's.!' His response was 'But we are all Family'. Still touches my soul that we were thought of as Family. I sure hope he taught someone how to BBQ as well as him. Many prayers to the family.

The Watts family loves Uncle Amu! When Kina was little, he used to love giving her hugs because he said she reminded him of "his Tessa". He even came out to watch her play soccer when he heard the other parents complained she was "too aggressive" and he never stopped cheering her on. Eight years ago, when the kids were still so little, we visited him in the hospital on Halloween and brought candy for all the patients on his floor. Uncle Amu always showed love and respect for everyone. Now you have the best seat in the house for Chiefs games!!! We love you Uncle Amu!
