Beth Chapman’s family is planning a Hawaiian inspired public farewell

Family members of “Dog the Bounty Hunter” star Beth Chapman are planning a public memorial for her in Hawaii.

Her husband and fellow reality star Duane “Dog” Chapman, reveled her funeral plans after she died from complications from cancer.

The family is inviting the extended Chapman “ohana” — Hawaiian for extended family — for a service that will include an “oli” chant.

In addition, attendees are being asked to bring ocean friendly loose flowers to scatter in the water.

Chapman also had a home in Colorado and plans for a service there are under way.
