The public is invited to pay their respects to Beth Chapman who passed away this week after her battle with cancer.

Duane “Dog” Chapman, the well-known bounty hunter and Beth's husband, announced plans to celebrate her life in both Colorado and Hawaii, places she called home.

“In her own words, she said, ‘I love Hawaii the most,’ so we are sending her off in true Hawaiian style, with aloha,” Chapman posted Friday.

A gathering will take place on Saturday, June 29 at Fort DeRussy Beach in Waikiki. The gathering will include “Hawaiian ʻOli, prayer, followed by a paddle out with family and friends.”

People who want to attend are asked to bring ocean-friendly flowers (with no strings).

Chapman also posted that people were welcomed to bring flowers for a memorial outside of their Hawaii home.

Exact plans for a Colorado memorial service are still in the works, the family says.

Chapman was diagnosed with throat cancer in September 2017. A tumor was removed and she was declared cancer-free, but in November 2018, she was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer.
