MACARAEG – Alejandro Magtaan

September 4, 1921 – November 14, 2010

Alejandro (“Andong”) Macaraeg, beloved husband of Modesta Macaraeg for sixty seven years, and son of Silverio and Fernanda, entered into eternal rest on Sunday, November 14, 2010 at the age of 89 years in Calgary, AB.

Alejandro is survived by his sister Dionisia Galsim in the Philippines. In life, he was blessed with twelve children: Lydia, Juanito (Julieta), Roberto (Jovita), Angelita (Alexander), Evangeline (Diosdado), Evelyn (Cesar), Virginia (Ireneo), Violeta (Michael), Ricardo, Ofelia (Antonio), Eduardo, and Nelson (Irene); twenty-three grandchildren, fifteen great-grandchildren; and numerous extended family still in the Philippines.

He worked as a security guard at Clark Field Airbase in Angeles City, Philippines, to support his family, but by trade he was a horologist, as well as a businessman. When he immigrated to Calgary in 1982, “Andong” became lovingly known as “Andy”. He was an avid fisherman, loved the outdoors and always being surrounded by his family. His humour, smile and love will be missed; he was truly a blessing from God.

    My wife Marlene, Christian and I would like to extend our deepest sympathy to the Macaraeg family. We surely missed kuya Andong of his goodness and we had a great memories when you visited us here in Paris. I remember when I gave him a jacket and he likes it. He was surely a goodman to many and a great husband and a great father to his children and great grand children. Though death is certain for us, we can triumph over it in Christ. Living for God makes both life and death meaningful. Apostle Paul cherished this sentiment because he viewed death as doorway to gaining more of Christ.
