Filed under: Obituaries |

lamigoAngelito Roque Lamigo, age 75 and from Cedar Hill, TX, passed away on June 30, 2015. A loving husband, father and grandfather, he will always be remembered. Born on Jan 23, 1940 in Cavite City, Philippines to his parents Francisco and Placida Lamigo, he was the second oldest of eight.

In 1965 he followed his older brother Frank’s footsteps into the U.S. Navy and began his own adventures that took him across the globe. In July 22, 1967, after three years on his own he returned to Manila, Philippines to marry Amelia deLeon. Having to return to duty soon after his wedding they reunited on July 1968 when Amelia joined him in America and together they began their life. Over his naval career he was stationed in Alameda, CA; Corpus Christi, TX; Mountain View, CA; Guam; Adak, AK; and finally Dallas, TX. More importantly during their travels he and Amelia grew their family with the additions of their two sons- Dwaine and Jeffery. On May 30, 1987 he retired from the U.S. Navy with 22 years of honorable service. A man who could not stay idle, he began his second career with the U.S. Postal Service and after 18 years he again retired on March 31, 2005, this time for good. He became an avid golfer and enjoyed his retirement with his family and friends.

Angelito will be missed. A man with quiet strength, he took care of people without question and asked for nothing in return. His stories and jokes, told with a big smile, kept people laughing and showed his inner personality. Whether you knew him as Gely, Papa, Lito, Grandpa, Kuya, Uncle, Ninong, Manager or even “Lee”, he became a meaningful part of our lives.

Papa grew a family that was a reflection of his compassion, his zeal for life, and his love of God.

He is survived by his wife of 48 years, Amelia; his sons Dwaine and Jeffery; his daughter-in-law Paula; and his grandson Devin. He is also survived by his sisters and brother, Ping, Salin, Gerry and Cristy.

Preceding his death were his parents, Francisco and Placida and his siblings Frank Jr., Jimmy and Emelita.

Please join us in honoring his life and bidding him “fair winds and following seas”.
