Funeral for Judge King set for St. Andrew’s church this afternoon

    The American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC), has named senior federal district court judge Samuel P. King an “honorary fellow” of the organization. King joins a prestigious group of others who have received this honor, including U.S. Supreme Court justices Earl Warren, Lewis Powell, Harry Blackmun, Warren Burger, and Sandra Day O’Connor, and the leading academic authorities of the 20th Century, Yale’s Austin W. Scott and Harvard’s A. James Casner.

The funeral for senior U.S. District Judge Samuel King is set for St. Andrew’s Cathedral.

King, who died Dec. 7 at the age of 94, also was an icon in Hawaii politics and society for six decades.

His funeral, which begins at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, is open to the public.

King is perhaps best known in recent years for being one of five co-authors of "Broken Trust," a lengthy 1997 essay and later a book that examined what was then called the Bishop Estate, one of the nation’s wealthiest educational trusts.

The trust is now known as Kamehameha Schools.

State flags have been ordered to fly at half-staff to honor federal Judge Samuel King, who died Dec. 7 at the age of 94.

Gov. Neil Abercrombie issued the order yesterday, which will be effective from sunrise to sundown today.

King is survived by wife Anne King, son Samuel P. King, Jr., daughters Louise K. Lanzilotti and Charlotte K. Stretch, sister Dr. Pauline N. King and six grandchildren.
