William Sy Amper, age 68, of Cape Coral, Florida passed away on Wednesday, October 6, 2021 in Houston, Texas. William was born August 28, 1953 in Bicol, Philippines to the late Sabina and Pionio Amper.

He attended Mindanao State University and College Park University class of 1993. His greatest achievement was joining the United States Navy. Mr. Amper's career with the Navy provided him with an education and the ability to move his family from poverty to the United States. His career gave him the foundation needed to be a good father and a family man. Mr. Amper served for 20 years and retired as a Chief Petty Officer of the United States.

When time allowed he was often found tending to his garden, cooking, baking, karaoke sessions and traveling. Hosting cookouts for friends was something he truly enjoyed; sharing his blessing with those around was something he did best. Mr. Amper was the kind of man that would give the shirt off his back to anyone in need, his generosity was felt by many and his memory will be forever cherished by all who know him.

Mr. Amper is survived by his beloved wife, Catherine Amper; his son Virgil Amper (Debbie) and his granddaughter Keona. Mr. Amper also leaves behind his siblings Marilyn, Maria Luisa, Merle, Meribeth, Margareth, Maria Teresa, Maria Fe, Marion, Mona Liza and Christine.

He was preceded in death by his parents Sabina and Pionio Amper, his sister Myrna and his first wife Ester.

Teen-age parties in William's and my days were dark because with lights on, the boys wouldn't dance. William used to stand near the light switch to switch the light off but my mother, 5 foot under, would March to where William was with her broom (lanot) to switch the light back on. So the lights would be on and off, on and off during the party.
My abiding memory of dear William.
