Our prayers are with the Koluse family this holiday season.

As families around the world are preparing gifts to exchange and sharing quality time with loved ones, the Koluse family of Te’ekiu Village in the Tonga islands, together with close friends and relatives, are bidding farewell to their beloved husband, father, and friend, Sioseti Sunia Koluse.

Sioseti lost his life Wednesday, Dec. 14, as he saved a 13-year-old young man being pulled out to sea by a strong current while swimming at Fotua beach.

Sioseti was serving as a volunteer youth leader in the Te’ekiu 1st Ward of the Hihifo Tonga at the time of his death. His family and friends say he loved to serve in any capacity within the Church and “would not shirk in his responsibilities.”
