On October 6, 2012, I posted a statement on Senator “Tony” Chang on my personal Facebook page. I am including it here and my other public sites as well. He was a great leader and friend to many.

I am saddened to have learned that my friend, Senator Anthony Chang who many called “Tony” passed away this past Tuesday, October 2, 2012 at the age of 68. Senator Chang was a great legislator and attorney. I was fortunate to have met him in 2002 through Senator Carol Fukunaga. Senator Chang would call me every so often and we often met at cultural and community events. I will always remember his smile, stories, and words of advice.
