Mokulehua was chairman of the council since August 1996. "He gave a lot to the community," said Dwayne Yoshina, the state's chief elections officer. "He made sure our counting was run with integrity and honesty."
Narrow vote differences during the 1996 primary election prompted Mokulehua to interrupt the vote tabulation to audit of the system, delaying the election's results for hours.
Mokulehua was a systems analyst and president of XDLC Corp. He was also the chapter president for the Information Systems Audit and Control Association.
"My perspective on computers is (they are) a fact of life. People my age either run from them or run to them," said Mokulehua in his Iolani School alumni profile.
He is survived by wife Delcie A.; son Robin Y.O.; mother Grace L.; brother Leslie Y.L., and sister Laurulie "Laurie" S.M. Maeda. Visitation is on Monday at Borthwick Mortuary from 5 to 9 p.m. Services are at 6:30 p.m.
