YAMBAO, Orlando Tapia

December 27, 1956 – Manila, Philippines
August 1, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

Orlando “Andy” Yambao, beloved husband of Elvira, and father of Darlynn, Dennise, and Jojo, passed away peacefully with his family beside him on August 1, 2018 at 5:35 pm.

Born and raised in Manila, Philippines, Andy was the youngest child of a close-knit brood of ten siblings, and was a cherished uncle to countless nieces and nephews. Andy moved to Calgary in 2005 where he made a new home with his family and established a prolific real estate career within a few years of his relocation. He will be best remembered for his sense of humour, kindness, and generosity and for his love of travelling, watching basketball, and the music of Earth, Wind, and Fire. His life’s greatest enjoyment was watching his children grow and build their own careers and families, the latest highlight of which was the birth of his first grandchild, Noah, just shortly before his cancer diagnosis. Weeks before his passing, Andy remarked that he was content to have lived a full life filled with love, laughter, and friendship.

Andy will also be greatly missed by his surviving siblings, nieces and nephews, cousins, and friends, in Manila, Calgary, and throughout the United States.
