Some people are wired different from others. Some candles burn brighter. Some people are larger than life. Archie Kalepa is such a person.
Archie was the lifeguard chief in Maui, Hawaii, for quite awhile. We are the same age and knew each other originally through the United States Lifesaving Association and forged a friendship through the years. Archie recently retired from his position to become the primary ambassador for Olukai sandals and to pursue other interests.
