On the soccer field, everyone could see Leo's speed and quickness, but his dad said through this tragedy the teenager has also shown an incredible inner strength.
"I went in by myself and I told him, 'I'm going to lose it.' He said 'That's OK.' I said, 'No, I'm your rock. I don't want you to see me like this.' He said, 'Dad, I'm here for you man.' What kind of kid is like that?" asked Klink.
Part of the legacy Hiroyo left behind was one of giving. Especially to her son and his passion for soccer.
She also gave in a different way. Both of her lungs, kidneys and liver were donated to those on the organ transplant list.
"Like Leo said, 'She will put the hero in Hiroyo.' She is going to help five people live," said Klink.
Klink said Hiroyo dreamed of her son going to college, but that will be a challenge as Paul is permanently disabled.
To help with the costs, friends have set up a fund for Leo. Contributions will be accepted at any Bank of Hawaii location. They have also set up a Facebook page with more details of the fund at: www.facebook.com/LeoKlinkCollegeFund.
