Edgardo Reblora Manlangit
October 27, 1942 – May 22, 2018
Known to all his friends and family as “Ed”, Edgardo Reblora Manlangit peacefully passed away on May 22, 2018 in Seattle, Washington, at the age of 75 as a result of a massive stroke he suffered from a week prior. He is survived by his children, Michelle and Earl, grandchildren, Sofia, Miles, Julian, and Ethan, former wife, Myra, and siblings, Wellington, Adolfo, Maria Salome, Jerry, Joselina, and Godofredo.
Born October 27th, 1942 to Rafael and Merced Reblora Manlangit in the town of Legaspi, Albay in the Philippine province of Bicol, he was the eldest of 9 children, lovingly known as “Manoy”. Ed attended the Mapua Institute of Technology and was an accomplished architect in the Philippines. After emigrating to the United States and putting down roots in Shoreline, Washington, Ed began working for the City of Seattle’s Plan Review department and continued to do so until his retirement in 2015. A proud countryman, he was one of the founding members of a local Filipino community group called the Tagalog Circle, to which he and his family spent many years attending events promoting and nurturing their Philippine heritage and creating a close knit circle of friends or “kababayan”. He loved music and art and loved his hometown sports. He was a devoted father and avidly attended his children’s, and later his grandchildren’s, sports pursuits like volleyball, basketball and baseball. Bowling was also a favorite past time of his. Travel became a passion of his later on in life as he visited almost every continent including travels to China, Australia, the Mediterranean, and Egypt.
Ed’s celebration of life will be held at Purdy and Walters at Floral Hills in Lynnwood, Washington. The viewing will take place on Friday, June 8th from 4:00pm to 8:00pm, with a rosary at 7:00pm. A short Catholic service will be held in his honor on Saturday, June 9th at 2:00pm at the chapel at Floral Hills presided over by Ed’s brother, Father Jerry Manlangit.
