Biography

“Seeing is believing.” For many, those words simply represent a motto. But for Dennis C Villar, it summarized in every way who he was. He was modest, quiet and observant, taking in everything around him and always thinking before acting. He was a realist, someone who was efficient and practical in everything he did. He was a friendly person who truly cared about those around him.

       He was the son of Oscar Villar and Rosario Crisostomo. Raised in Ormoc City, Philippines, he was brought up to be tolerant and trustworthy. As a child, he learned to be conscientious, responsible and punctual. These were all traits that he would carry with him throughout his life.

      As a young boy, Dennis was always aware of how others around him felt and this quality served him well. With a deep capacity to tolerate the feelings of others, Dennis was generally able to avoid conflicts. It seemed as if Dennis was the family member who was always working to keep stress at bay. Preferring a quiet environment where he could concentrate, Dennis also had the ability to relate well with his family and friends. Dennis was raised with three siblings. He had Sundy, Alexis and Edwin Villar. Dennis was constantly involved in activities with his family. Dennis and his siblings had the typical rivalries while growing up but they deeply cared for each other and shared many life experiences over the years.

      Growing up, Dennis was one of those children who didn’t need to be in the center of a whirlwind of activity. He was content to entertain himself. Dennis was never pushy when it came to games and other activities, but rather, he was able to enjoy the pure fun these could bring. In just about everything he did as a child, Dennis was intent on pleasing both the adults and the other children around him. Dennis took part in a number of activities as a child. He took part in basketball, tennis and ping pong. He was a member of the school choir and dance troop. In his spare time he liked going out with his friends.

      Dennis enjoyed learning. He always had a great memory and was particularly skilled at retaining factual information. Dennis was generally quiet in class, learning best through observation. He often showed great concentration and was competent at completing the tasks at hand. Good with details, Dennis was painstaking and accurate in his efforts. All of these talents culminated in a successful high school career. He graduated from St. Peters College in Ormoc City, Philippines in 1973. Dennis enjoyed some courses more than others, having favorite subjects and teachers. The teacher he enjoyed learning from the most was Sister Celine.

      Dennis had a good disposition for the challenges of college. He always enjoyed reading, so all of those lengthy required reading assignments seemed to be less of a burden for him. In fact, Dennis seemed to absorb and remember everything he read. Not all things came easily to Dennis, however, and he found success by being a diligent and accurate person who would dig into a project and work through until it reached its completion. He was very thorough and labored long and hard in order to reach his goals. He earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Agriculture from Silliman University.

      Most folks would say that Dennis was shy until they got to know him. Those who were privileged to know him well learned that he was a solid, good friend. Dennis was reluctant to generalize about people, and he based his friendships on his personal experiences. Because of this, Dennis best trusted those people that he truly knew. He was concerned about how those around him felt, and he always seemed to uncover the positive side of people. He could relate to others and had the ability to see their point of view, to “walk a mile in their shoes,” as the saying goes. The friends that he made, Dennis kept. While growing up, some of his best friends were Ruben Perez and Larry Argunna. Later in life, he became friends with Bob and Beth Quinto, Masoud & Cecilia Badie, Soc and Ingrid Amodia and the Chan family in addition to the members of the Santo Nino Prayer Group.

      Love can’t be defined but must be experienced. That was so true for Dennis. On January 10, 1981 Dennis married Maria Lourdes Perez at Sts. Peter and Paul Parish of Ormoc City, Philippines. He was totally committed to Maria and maintained traditional ideals about marriage. It was as if Dennis naturally sensed his spouse’s needs, and accepted those feelings unconditionally. Although Dennis disliked conflict, he did not take flight from discord, but rather sought to preserve harmony even during the most trying times.

      Dennis was a good father to his children. He had “old fashioned” parental values and could handle typical family conflicts in a fair and calm manner. Because he trusted emotions, Dennis was reluctant to force issues and used gentle persuasion to resolve situations. In this way he seemed to radiate an aura of warmth and caring to those around him, always thinking before acting. In addition, Dennis was a master planner. No matter how hectic life around him might be, he seemed to know and track everyone’s schedule. Dennis was blessed with three children, two sons: Jose and Kevin Villar and one daughter: Denise Villar.

      If you gave Dennis a deadline, he would meet it. At work, Dennis was always on task. Without hesitation, Dennis could adhere to any assignment and see it through to its completion. His primary occupation was as a personal banker. He was employed for more than thirty years in the banking and management industry. During that time, Dennis excelled in working with small groups in order to complete assignments. He was able to quickly grasp concrete ideas and could organize and plan the best way to accomplish things with remarkable consistency. Dennis was good at staying on track and was considerate in listening to what others had to say. In this way, Dennis had a true gift for being able to come up with practical resolutions to difficult problems. He was often the team member who managed to put forth a win/win solution for all parties.

      Dennis liked to experience things first hand, in addition to simply learning about them. This quality influenced Dennis's choice of leisure time activities. A methodical and patient worker, Dennis preferred to set aside uninterrupted time to work on his hobbies. His favorite pursuits were his work, cooking, watching television and gardening. Dennis was content to sit quietly alone, enjoying his hobbies all by himself and could often be found just reading about his favorite pastimes. He found happiness at home with his family.

      While thorough and measured in his approach to things, Dennis often liked to physically do things rather than just think about them. He was like that with sports. In high school, Dennis played basketball and ping pong. In his college years, Dennis continued to stay active by playing basketball and ping pong. He also enjoyed the statistical data and the facts behind the sports. In this way, he was something of a sports fan and enjoyed watching his favorite teams whenever he got the opportunity. Tops on his list were football, basketball, tennis and golf.

      Dennis was active in the community. He was practical and grounded and based his decisions on first hand experience. He was responsible and liked working to achieve results rather than just chattering about possibilities. Dennis was a member of several community groups, serving on committees for the Bank of American Community Events.

      An individual who respected and maintained traditional values, his faith was important to Dennis. His compassion, consideration and sympathy toward others was evident in his personal beliefs. He was a member of the Catholic Church for 62 years.

      Anyone who traveled or went on vacation with Dennis had smooth sailing. It was often taken for granted that he was the trip planner. He would start early and examine all of the possibilities, selecting the best and most effective options. Favorite vacations included his trips to Seattle and Canada, as well as trips to Florida, The Bahamas, and back to the Philippines to visit family.

      Dennis had Jonny, our family terrier mix, who was his little buddy for seven years. Dennis was as loyal to his pets as they were to him.

      Dennis passed away on July 8, 2019 at St. Rose Dominican Hospital in Las Vegas. He fought a brave battel against cancer. He is survived by his wife: Maria, children Jon, Denise and Kevin and brothers Sundy, Alexis and Edwin. Services were held at Palm Southwest Mortuary, Las Vegas.

      It is said that some people can’t see the forest for the trees. Dennis was able to focus on each individual tree, tending to its needs, thus making the forest stronger as a whole. Dennis was a trustworthy, pragmatic and sympathetic person, the kind of man to whom everyone was drawn. He was thorough and practical. Dennis Villar was very literal with his words. You always knew where you stood with Dennis. He will be missed.
