It was a great shock for us to learn of Sonny's passing. I have known Sonny a couple of decades ago when he was wooing Lina, who was then my officemate. I know then that he was a good man and will be a devouted husband to Lina. I was still in contact with them even after they got married and had kids, Ann and Marie. Our communication had been infrequent when both our families migrated, they to the US and us to Canada. The last time I saw Sonny and Lina was when we visited Orlando, must have been over ten years ago; where they treated us to a Mongolian lunch. Sonny was so nice to go out of his way to tour us around Orlando. I would never expect him to be taken so early by our Lord but our life here on earth is unpredictable. All I can say, Sonny, I know you are now in a much better place than we are here on earth. Goodbye my friend and may you rest in peace with our Lord in heaven. I know your family especially Lina, will miss you deeply.
With our prayers, Jimmy and Rosie Borromeo.

Tito Sonny saved my life — literally.
My Dad, Roqs, who worked with Tito Sonny at Tupperware, would mention this whenever Tito Sonny’s name would come up.
I was three years old then so I only remember bits and pieces. This happened during a Tupperware excursion.
I was a very active and curious child. So seeing a big blue body of water was very exciting. It was a pool and yes, I fell in. I couldn’t swim then so I remember struggling to breathe and sinking. But that didn’t last long. Soon, I was on land again, being swaddled in towels by my parents.
Dad said it was Tito Sonny who fearlessly and without hesitation, jumped into the pool and saved me. Though I don’t have perfect recall of the incident, I do remember a big person getting me out of the water. And Dad said it was Tito Sonny. I would probably not be alive today if not for him. He is a true hero.
So, thank you, Tito Sonny. Thank you too for being the rock that my Dad leaned on when you were together at Tupperware.

While we mourn today, we also take comfort in the fact that your mission on earth have been fulfilled. We thank the Lord for your life and bid you farewell until we meet again.

My uncle Sonny was humble, kind, loving, caring and good at heart and soul.

I can still remember the joyful he always exhibited whenever he visited us in Laoag City, the cheerfulness in him and the unending generosity that was his unique identity. He cared about his family, siblings and relatives a lot and never wanted to lose touch.

Uncle Sonny touched so many lives by your selfless and countless acts of kindness always giving and never expecting any favours in return. You were and will always be an inspiration to me, the entire Judalena family and anyone who worked with you.

Kuya Sonny, as we call him is married to my first cousin Catalina, or we call her Manang Nanoy. Both of them are the most loving and generous hosts when we visit Orlando, Florida. They will go out of their way to welcome and prepare meals for our whole family and even share their home with us on some of our past visits. I enjoy having conversations with Kuya Sonny who is very intelligent and loves to talk about relevant issues. He is very considerate, thoughtful and makes us all feel so much at ease and at home in his company! Thank you Kuya Sonny for all the LOVE and generosity extended towards us and for being the loving Husband, Father and Grandpop to your family.....I cried so much when I heard about your passing, you will be missed! By the way, enjoy Heaven!!
Love,
Jackie Baello and Family

My name is Maria Johnson I know Kuya Sonny and Ate Lina for over 15 years. I love both of them they are like my big brother and big sister to me. Both of them are so good to me while I was staying in Florida. But those day’s that I was in Florida I spend lots of time with both of them through Mahjong. We play weekdays and specially on weekend. I admired Kuya Sonny so much he is very funny, generous and thoughtful. He is my Splenda supplier 😃😃, also he is very positive person don’t like conflict and he is not picky with food. Kuya Sonny is a person that easy to get along. One time when I have my flat tire not too far from his house, the only person I can think to call that I know he will help me with no question is Kuya Sonny. He told me where are you and I will be right there. That’s the kind of person he is very helpful. I will definitely will missed him. I was in Orlando on vacation month of July and August I was spending time with both Kuya Sonny and Ate Lina we enjoy our company every time we play Mahjong we laugh, eat. I did not realized that was the last time I will see him. My heart is aching I love and care him and also Ate Lina. May you Rest In Peace. Love you Kuya Sonny
