Charles Carveiro Jr.

On Aug. 1, 2021, Charles Carveiro Jr., loving son, husband, father and papa, passed away at age 57 with his family by his side, in Seattle.

Charles was born on Dec. 18, 1963 in Waimea, to Charles and Claire Carveiro. Charles graduated from Waimea High School in 1981. He then went on to graduate from Linfield College in McMinnville, Oregon in 1985 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration.

He was on the Linfield football team as an offensive lineman, where he became a two-time NAIA national champion. He was inducted into the Linfield College Athletic Hall of Fame in 2004 and inducted to the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame in 2011.

He returned home after graduating and spent 25 years working for the Kaua‘i Community Federal Credit Union. He later went on to work at the U.S. Navy Pacific Missile Range Facility. While working at the credit union he met his wife Sheri Mundon Carveiro. They were married Nov. 21, 1990. Together they had three children, daughters Kelli and Kasey and son Cory.

His interests included football, rodeo, hunting and fishing, anything outdoors, and having a few cold ones with friends. He was involved for many years with the Kaua‘i Pop Warner Association (Koloa, Kekaha and Hanapepe). Many today still refer to him as “coach.” He was also involved with the Kaua‘i Keiki High School Rodeo Association and Hawai‘i High School Rodeo Association for many years.

Charles was a good man, a loving husband, a caring father and a great friend. He was known for his quick wit, infectious laugh, big smile and kind heart, and would give anyone the shirt off his back. He will be truly missed by many.
