Alex Kaloi Obituary, Death –  On Sunday evening, a heart attack took the life of Dr. Alex Kaloi, a well-liked dentist who had previously played quarterback for the University of Hawaii. He was 67. Over the course of more than four decades, Kaloi successfully operated a dentistry office in Waianae.

However, it was on the football field and the basketball court when Kaloi first garnered attention for his talents. The Honolulu Advertiser honored Kaloi as the Back of the Year in 1972 for his performance as the dual-threat quarterback for Leilehua High School. On the Leilehua basketball squad that ended up winning the 1973 state title, he was the point guard for the team.

He was a member of the Rainbow Warriors for a total of three seasons. The Warriors were able to pull off an upset victory over Rutgers by a score of 28-16 in 1974 thanks to his 32-yard touchdown run on the third play of the game. Kaloi suffered an injury that ended his season in the University of Hawaii’s first game at Aloha Stadium, which was played against Texas A&I in 1975. After hanging up his cleats, he went back to school to get his bachelor’s degree and then enrolled in dental school.

“He embodied everything that was good about recruiting local athletes to the University of Hawaii football program,” said Honolulu Mayor Rick Blangiardi, who served as UH’s recruiting coordinator and assistant coach in the early 1970s. Blangiardi is the current mayor of Honolulu. “He embodied everything that was good about recruiting local athletes to the University of Hawaii football program.” “He took great pride in playing in his own stadium. He was one to challenge others. He had a lot of ability. He contributed greatly to the success of the team.
