I will miss you so much uncle Eb. Your kindness and strength will never be forgotten.
I remember visiting you and auntie Belen at your home in Coquitlam. You were always so happy to show the latest fish you smoked, and it always tasted the best.
I take comfort in knowing that you are now with auntie Belen and Pudge. You’ve overcome so much and I am glad that you are able to rest peacefully with your loved ones.

Kuya Eb, I didn’t know you before moving to Canada 20 years ago, but it was a pleasure and honour to get to know you when you allowed us to stay at your place before we found a place for ourselves.

You are the nicest man under the sun, quite, loving and strong. You will be missed, but will stay in our hearts forever.

Rest In Peace, together with Ate Belen.

I loved my Father. Strong willed and kind, adored by all and a role model to me. I hope to be just as impactful to my children as he was in my life growing up.

Eventhough we didn't do much camping or outdoors stuff, i very much enjoyed fishing with him. The secret spots, the various boats and inflatables, the dangerous paths ... When i was younger, we even got stranded on a log boom on the Fraser River once. Before we got rescued by a tugboat, he tried his best to get us back to shore. He jumped into the river and tried to make a bridge out of floating planks. Mae was going nuts thinking he wouldn't come back! Knowing how the current is in the Fraser, he was super brave and would do anything to get us to safety. He was our HERO!

I remember finding his tattoo on his hand when i was a kid and thinking he was a thug when he was younger. Haha.

I remember going back to the Philippines with him as a child and as an adult, travelling to his hometown, Camiling, Tarlac. It was an unforgettable experience seeing my Dad light up in what used to be his natural setting. Seeing the places he grew up and how he lived, I see how he wanted to make our lives better somewhere else.

I will also remember catching him when he didn't know what he was talking about or hiding the truth. Too proud to admit it, he would eventually just start to lick his lips and evidently, it was a pure giveaway of inevitable smiling and laughter because he knew he was busted.

He loved Me, my wife, Monica and my two kids, Ethan and Mila. I'm happy they got to know him when he taught them how to plant in our backyard. They played with him, coloured, sang and danced with him. I know they already miss him since he passed.

He taught me how to cook Ilocano foods like pinakbet, dinengdeng and papaitan, how to drive, how to garden, and many other things. I am forever thankful.

I love you Dad! I wish you to be happy with Mom now!

Your Son,

Jonathan (Jay) Ulanday

Biography

Eusebio Valdez Ulanday was born on October 29, 1936 in Camiling, Tarlac, Philippines. He was the youngest child of Victor Luis Ulanday and Maria Corazon Ulanday, among 10 other siblings. His wife Belen Ulanday sadly predeceased him in 2013. He is survived by his son Jonathan, who is married to Monica, and children; Ethan and Mila, and by his daughter, Julie Mae, married to Malcolm with children; Jacob, Caleb, & Aria. He loved all his grandchildren and was the best Lolo/Papa that he could be to them. He was a strong, proud, silent man. A man who lived life with passion to do everything for his wife, his kids and his family.

He followed the love of his life, Belen and immigrated to Canada in the early 1970s to start fresh and write a new chapter for his family and his name. He worked as a Millwright at Reichhold Chemicals in Port Moody for many years, after giving up his job at Philippine Cement. Eusebio worked jobs on the island and finally settled down in Port Moody with Mom. They saved up and bought a cozy little house in Coquitlam to start their family. He worked hard and didn't spoil his children growing up. He taught them to enjoy what they earn and live life as humble as possible. On top of providing for his own family, he would continuously help his relatives back in the Philippines to make sure they could better their lives and provide simple luxuries from Canada with "balikbayan".
They all knew him as their Kind Uncle Eb/Ebong.

In his younger years, he spent his time fishing. Any free day he had would be spent catching some type of fish or shellfish and teaching his kids the ways. It was one of his favorite hobbies. The other joy was gardening, Eb was the backyard farmer and he reaped the benefits of home gardening as well with his yearly prized vegetable harvest.

He emitted a strong aura. He was stern, yet playful too. He would tease his children's childhood friends with broken English, but he knew what he was doing. He was always just trying to ease the tension when talking to them. He was the type of person you could count on to have a good an honest conversation with. Anyone that met him had a great love and respect for him. Eusebio valued your presence and earned the respect of everyone that knew him with ease. Even his best little buddy, Pudge and his faithful follower Winston had so much love for him.

Eusebio loved his grandchildren Jacob, Caleb, Ethan, Mila and Aria so much, and he was so proud to be their Lolo. They made him stronger and they will forever be grateful to have him in their lives. They will miss playing with him, joking around with him, taking walks with him and even just sitting around and helping him with anything he needed. They are so lucky to have been able to share so many memories with him.

When his beloved wife passed, he was devastated, but he shouldered on knowing the new generation of his family needed him. He was supported by his cherished extended Family, Friends, Kumares and Kumpares. He cared for them all in their own special ways. Eusebio cherished everyone's company when they would visit or call. Nephews and Nieces had a special Uncle/Tito, and he loved and appreciated you all too.

Over the last two years, he fought a long hard battle. He was in and out of the hospital but he just kept coming home for us. Eusebio was the strongest man anyone knew. He is now reunited with the love of his life once again.

We will forever honour a Man that cared so much for everyone that knew him. Thank you Dad for everything. We Love You and will never forget you!
