Ricardo "Eric" Amon Pasaoa, age 63, from Spring, Texas passed away unexpectedly on Thursday morning, December 31, 2020.

Ricardo "Eric" Pasaoa, was born in Calasiao, Pangasinan, Philippines, on May 27, 1957, to his mother, Gliceria Pasaoa, and father, Teodorico Pasaoa.

Although Eric left us too early, he lived his life to the fullest, loved his family so much, left his greatest legacy, and will forever be in our hearts. Eric was known to spread laughter and love to everyone he cared for. He was a friendly, goofy, and outgoing spirit, who was never afraid to welcome or talk to anyone he encountered. Eric had a passion for sharing his talent of music with everyone he met, whether it be with family, friends, or even strangers. Eric could always be found playing the piano, the acoustic or bass guitar, or singing along to beautiful songs that he enjoyed. He loved bringing everyone together with his music, which would light up every room and carry everyone through each melody. Eric also enjoyed documenting all of his family's happiest and momentous occasions. Eric was a very beloved and devoted husband of 32 years, loving and proud father, caring brother, son, and uncle, genuine friend, talented musician, an avid sports fan of basketball, boxing, football, Houston sports- Rockets, Texans, and Astros, an amazing chef and gardener, hard-working and creative handy man, and a dedicated nurse and healthcare provider for many years.

Eric is survived by his wife, Clemencia "Menchu" Cendaña Pasaoa, his daughter, Heather Erika Pasaoa, his son, Keith Lawrence Pasaoa, his granddog Marley, his brothers and sisters, Alfredo Pasaoa, Zenaida Pasaoa-Gabat, Arturo Pasaoa, Joseph Pasaoa, Gregorio Pasaoa, Romulo Pasaoa, Raul Pasaoa, and Charito Pasaoa-Fernandez, his mother-in-law, Purification Cendaña, several cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends. Eric was preceded in death by his father, Teodorico Pasaoa, his mother, Gliceria Pasaoa, and his father-in-law, Perfecto Cendaña.

Dear Uncle Eric,

It is with a heavy heart I write this. You were always such a caring and fun uncle. I would never forget the time I visited Texas for Heather’s Sweet 16 and your family welcomed mine as if we have didn’t have a whole country distancing us. It was shown through your kindness and hospitality that no matter what, family sticks together. I am so sorry I did not get to know you as well as I could have, but you will always have a fond place in my and my family’s heart. Tita Menchu, Heather, and Lawrence are the seeds of the love you behold. Everyone here will help take care of them so that their love from you that flows within them will continue to grow. Will always miss you. Until we meet again.

Sincerely,
Charlene Fernandez

Uncle Eric,
There isn’t much to say that hasn’t been said already. You are loved and missed by us all and your passing has left a deep wound that will take a lifetime to heal. Just know that Heather, Lawrence and Tita Menchu has so many looking and caring for them and that any of us would drop what we’re doing to help them out. Heather and Lawrence have grown to become wonderful and kind adults and you and Tita should be proud to have raised them. Last time I saw you was during your wedding. I’m sorry I didn’t visit again. You took great care of me and I always appreciated that and think of it from time to time. Thank you.

Love,
RJ Pasaoa

Kuya Eric, now that you are gone, my heart aches in sadness. You left us without warning and not even a good-bye. I cannot hide my tears since you went away. If only I could see your face and hear your voice one more time, but now all I have are the memories of the past. Even though we don’t have the chance to talk that much, I will never forget you calling me “panya” everytime we talk over the phone. I won’t be able to have facetime with you and show you my vegetable garden. I will cherish all the good memories I had with you as my loving, caring and kind brother. No words can express how much I love you and how much I miss you. Rest in peace kuya Eric
You will always be in our hearts- Agustin, Charito, Charlene and Justin

Those were the happy days of our family life. Still hoping for our closeness with each other again as my brother Eric dreamed off near the end.
I'll be missing you, Bro, but you're always in my heart.

Rest in Peace, Uncle Eric. God probably had good reason to take you away from us so soon but I'm sure it's still exceptionally hard for Lawrence, Heather, and Tita Menchu. May God give them strength.

I remember as a kid my father would be so proud of his brother Eric who played in his own Manilla Express Band. I enjoyed playing a VHS tape of one of your performances nearly every night. I have nothing but good memories of you and all your brothers and sisters growing up -- I lived with nearly each of them at some point, even Uncle Fred in Michigan. Which is why it's hard for me to understand what's going on between them.

So please forgive me for asking you, but maybe you're now in the best position, if you can help them all like my dad was hoping you could before you left us. Somehow remind them all of the connection of real family that should be treasured beyond material things -- what Jesus, God, and the Holy Spirit preached of. They're weaker separated like this than together in peace. Please watch over them and please guide them.

That said, I wish we had more time together, Uncle Eric. I wish I got to visit and see you and Lawrence, Heather, and Tita more. I never got to introduce you to my family. And I'll regret that.

You were a cool uncle. Blessed be your soul besides the goodness of the Lord. Thank you for everything.

Sincerely,
Joey Pasaoa, accompanied by Judith and Fiona

My family has known Eric and Menchu when they moved to Nacogdoches, Tx on the 80’s. Those valuable memories prevailed the friendliness and kindness of Eric and Menchu. We call each other “pare and mare” being the godparents of Erica.
When Eric and Menchu moved to Houston, the friendship was ceaseless. Eric had not forgotten to invite us whenever there were special occasions. There were awesome memories during their 25th wedding anniversary. Sharing those important moments with their friends were remarkable! Eric generously offered his home if we need to stay overnight in Houston.
We would surely missed Eric but those great memories and friendship will stay forever in our hearts.
