Antonio P. Abrigo passed away, Friday, October 12, 2012 at 1:18pm in Santa Clara, CA at the age of 75. He was born in Tayabas, Quezon, Philippines and was a long time San Jose, CA resident.

He was a graduate of the University of the East in Manila, Philippines, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration, major in Accounting. Antonio had a 10-year career as a CPA, internal auditor, and part-time instructor at the Luzonion University in Lucena City, Quezon Province, Philippines. He was also a full time administrative officer at the law office of Congressman Manuel S. Enverga and at the Lucena Development Company. He immigrated to the United States, along with his family in 1973. Antonio practiced his profession at San Francisco State University, Stanford University, and San Jose State University, where he retired in the year 1999.

“Brother Tony," as most people knew him, found his purpose in life serving the Almighty God and our Lord Jesus Christ in the Church of Christ – Iglesia Ni Cristo for 55 years. He held various positions of leadership in the Church for 51 years and was a Head Deacon from 1965 until 2008. He had “fought a good fight, kept the faith, finished the race," and now he is at peace in the Lord.

Brother Tony was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, in-law, brother in the Church, and a dear friend. He is survived by his loving wife, Lydia, of 47 years; son Sam with his wife Cecile and their son Gavin; daughter Analy with her husband Mark and their son Ryan; son David with his wife Eva and their children Aaron and James; and three brothers and four sisters. He maintained a close and loving bond with each of his children and their families. He adored his family, treasured his four grandsons, had a passion for music, travel, photography, and gardening. He left his legacy to his children and grandchildren about God’s teachings by reminding them to have “complete trust in God and His supreme power over all creation that He will always provide all good things to His chosen people in these last days.” He will be dearly missed by family and friends as his memory will remain in our hearts.

I may have grown up not completely knowing my Tito Tony unlike my other cousins, but I know that he had been a very good person to all of us, like a father to all of his brothers and sisters, especially to my dad.

It breaks my heart not spending time with him even on the last days of his life, but still feels lucky to have him as my Tito.

Tita Lydia, may you take comfort knowing that Tito Tony is watching over you and your family. Condolence.
