Carlos Estrada Lumibao, passed away on October 18, 2021 at Royal Columbian Hospital at the age of 74 after a brief but brave battle of heart failure.

Carlos was born on March 16, 1947 in Camiling, Tarlac Philippines. He is he eldest of eight children of the late Felicisimo Lumibao (farmer) and the late Leonor Estrada Lumibao (market vendor). Carlos realized that education is one way to ease the poverty he saw and experienced in their family. Determined to pursue a degree, he worked during the days (Supreme Variety Store) and attended evening classes. He took up Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and became a teacher.

April 21, 1975, he married Victoria Mateo. His uncle Alex entrusted his four children to them in order to work abroad to join his wife Sophie, they became an instant parent to four. They were blessed with three children: Carolyn married to Brenold Pacleb, Darwin, Eilene Kate married to Wilson Bugarin and two wonderful grandsons Mico Gerard Pacleb and Sen Jude Bugarin.

In November 2013, he migrated to Canada to enjoy his retirement.

He cherished his more than 30 years as a classroom teacher, a head teacher and finally a principal until his retirement. He extended to his younger siblings his determination, encouragement and supporting them through their college education. This reflects his characteristics as a loving and God-fearing father, his kindness and generosity to relatives, friends’ colleagues, students and neighbours.

A True Pillar of Education and Benevolence.
