OBITUARY

Crispin Marzan Amores

September 7, 1943June 20, 2019

Crispin “Cris” Marzan Amores, 75, passed away peacefully June 20, 2019 at St. Agnes Hospital in Fresno, CA after suffering a massive heart attack. He was born September 7, 1943 to Remigio Amores, Sr. and Dolores Marzan in San Fernando La Union, Philippines. Growing up, Cris was taught to value hard work and perseverance. At a very young age, he started helping his carpenter father fix furniture. At the beach, Cris would help the fishermen push their boats off the shore and in return he received fish to take home for dinner.

Cris received his bachelor’s degree from the University of the East, where he met his one true love. On January 3, 1970, he married Victoria Duco. Life in the Philippines was difficult because Cris worked far from his family and only came home once a week. He was a book binder and then became a supervisor at Radio Veritas.

Cris immigrated to Los Angeles, CA, in 1986 and settled in San Jose with his family in 1987. He retired at age 62 and became a full time Grandpa, which gave him happiness and fulfillment.

He may not have been an adventurous man, but he took pleasure in caring for his family and listening attentively to all their activities. He loved the beach and the mountains. He loved to watch FOX news and the San Antonio Spurs.

There were so many fun memories with Cris because he was such a good man. He was non-judgmental and a good listener. He made everyone feel important and acknowledged every accomplishment. He was a proud Grandpa and loved to talk about his grandkids. Although Cris had strong opinions, he remained humble and compassionate. He loved to joke around and was never seen upset. He had a very calm personality with a smile that was infectious.

Survivors include his wife Victoria, four children (Cecille, Hector, Alan, and Maria Victoria), seven grandchildren (Jasmine, Cassandra, Jessica, Catherine, Jayson, Cedric, Janelle); four sisters (Norma, Lourdes, Teresita, Estrella); as well as many nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends. Cris was predeceased by his parents and his brother, Remigo, Jr.

My sincerest condolences to the family of Cedric. Cedric is my son’s friend/ schoolmate. Everyday on school days I saw Cedric & his grandpa . We are always early and stays inside the car while waiting for the bell to ring & we can see them in their car waiting too. From where we are we can see how grandpa is so loving & caring of Cedric making sure he is nice & clean. He’s wiping his grandson’s face before he gets off the car. He’ s always smiling & laughing with Cedric while walking Cedric to school. I can tell that Mr Cabales loves his grandchildren and does his best to help them out by bringing them to school not just Cedric. Jeremiah and I are sad to hear of this very sudden event. May the God of peace & comfort surround his family with His loving arms.
