He finished secondary school in Legarda High School and Bachelor of Secondary Education major in English at UERM University of the East.
He was married for 66 years to the only love of his life, TEODOSIA, who in heaven is watching over and waiting to hold his hands again. Papang and Mamang had shared mutual appreciation of the simple things in life. And, it was always "family first"... that continued throughout their long happy marriage.
They migrated to America in 1986 where they created a pleasant and gratifying life until passing. He was a teacher, district supervisor and became a Principal in Elementary and High School in the Philippines. He worked and retired at UCSF Medical Center in the Maintenance Department.
