Biographie

Sammuel Oliveria Gongora first saw the light of day on July 7, 1963. He was the fifth child of Angelina Oliveria and Francisco Gongora. He had 6 other siblings – Lydia, Daniel, Esther, Raquel, Emmanuel, and Meriam. Within this family, Sammy grew up in love and kindness, humility and forgiveness.

With both parents being Christians, Heling and Isko became models of faith for all their children. Sammy was baptized and he accepted Jesus as his savior during his high school year. From being a youth member, he soon became a servant of the elder as a deacon – first at Ilwas Church of Christ then at Calapacuan Church of Christ. He devoted time and service for the church when he was in the Philippines. When he went to the US, he never failed to share his financial blessings to his home church. Although he was far away, he remained involved in church programs and planning. He was faithful in his service, and he placed God first in everything he did.

Embracing God’s gift of single-blessedness, Sammy did not have children of his own. But, for all his nieces and nephews – Lera, Francez, Jemuel, Jam, MM, Ruth Ann, Daizy, and Jirah – he was their second father. He helped in their school projects, brought them to and from the school using his pedicab. He was a disciplinarian and is often strict especially when it comes to the safety of his loved ones.

He was content in his life in the Philippines, but following the death of their eldest sister Lydia, Sammy grabbed the opportunity to go to the US where his father and sister Merriam resides. He did so not because it was his dream but because he saw an opportunity to be of more help to his family. He worked hard so that he can earn enough to send money to the Philippines.

Sammy was selfless in his love. He was not perfect – he had his shortcomings and he fell along the way so many times. But it was his love and genuine concern for everyone around him that endeared him to a lot of people. He gave everything he has and expected nothing in return other than the satisfaction of seeing his loved ones happy.

On October 6, 2019 he breathed his last. His death comes as a blow to many – so sudden, so unexpected. On his death, he is survived by Daniel, Esther, Raquel, and Merriam; his nieces and nephews; and his two grandchildren Bernice Mishael and Bethany Micaiah. He has carved his place in their hearts, and while he will be sorely missed, he will never be truly gone from their memories.

He comes home to the Father knowing he can say “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith (2 Timothy 4:7).”

Goodbye our dear Sammy. You are now with Nanay and Tatay, Emman and Lydia. You now rest in the presence of our God. Till we meet again!
