How far does love for family extend? Where does such love and loyalty come from and how does a person’s upbringing make a difference? Today we hear from Rainier Villa, one of Hawaii’s top basketball players in the 1980’s from a family of athletes. A tender story from a humble man with a courageous heart.
Rainier Villa was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii. He attended catholic school the entire time. His parents Riza and April Villa worked in the airlines industry and believed that education was important. They stayed active in the community through church and youth sports. After earning his bachelor of business administration degree at Hawaii Pacific University, Rainier worked in the real estate field before landing in the medical industry.
