Lorenzo left his hometown at age 17 to pursue his college education in Manila, Philippines. He took up civil engineering, but was not able to complete due to an illness that brought him down and made him financially drained.

There his other four married siblings with their families were all settled down. Lorenzo stayed there and met Catalina Apoya who was graduating high school. They got acquainted, got in loved and got married right after Catalina graduated.
Due to lack of college degree, he wasn’t able to find a good paying job to support his family. He didn’t have much choice but took up farming in the village where his wife was residing. There, they successfully raised 5 children and provided for their education under strict discipline.
Due to Lorenzo’s passion in farming, he encouraged his oldest son to take up Agricultural Technology in college. A rare opportunity came up while his oldest son graduating college, a government program was looking for young, hardworking farming students to learn farming abroad. His son got chosen for USA. His son decided to stay, got married and petitioned Lorenzo and the rest of the family.
Lorenzo resided in the US for 24 years and passed away December 27, 2018 at 5:30 in the morning at age 94.
He was a dedicated husband and a caring father. He was a very likable person, friendly and full of humors. But he went through all kinds of physical hardships due to ageing and struggled to live a long life to fully learn his lessons in life. He will be missed.
