Gilbert recalls that Manong Pastor was a well respected instructor of the US Navy Dental School in San Diego, CA. To me, he was a great brother in-law who welcomed us to his home during our visits to San Diego. Our last meeting was at the home of his daughter Melinda in New Jersey and he shared some stories about his activities as retired. It was good to know that he was happy with being retired. RIP Manong Pastor up in heaven with your beloved wife Manang Sanny.

My sincere condolences to the Ellazar Family. Thank you Uncle Pastor for being a great role model for all of us kids growing up with the Urdaneta Association. I’ll always remember that soft spoken demeanor of yours... what really helps comfort this loss is knowing you will be reunited with Auntie Sunny. Please say hello to her for me. Rest in Paradise, Uncle. -Ruth
