A Memorial Mass for Anastacio H. Estacio, 95, of Tyler, will be held on Saturday, Feb. 8, 2014 at 4:30 P.M. at Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church, 1435 ESE Loop 323 in Tyler, with Bishop Joseph Strickland officiating.

Anastacio died peacefully and unexpectedly after a brief illness on Saturday, Feb. 1, 2014 in Dallas VA Hospital.

He was born on January 21, 1919 in Bautista, Pangasinan, Philippines. He was a dentist by profession.

In Sept. 1, 1941, he was inducted to the United States Armed Forces in the Far East (USAFFE) under the leadership of Capt. Warren (U. S. Army), at Camp James B. Ord, in San Miguel, Tarlac, Philippines and fought against the Japanese Imperial Forces in Bataan, Philippines. During the Fall of Bataan in April 9, 1942, he was among the thousands of POW's, both Americans and Filipinos, in the infamous Bataan Death March. They were concentrated at Camp O'Donnell in Capas, Tarlac where he contracted malaria. When he had fully recovered from malaria, he joined the USAFFE Luzon Guerilla Army Forces until the end of WWII in 1946. And because of this act of bravery and heroism during the WWII, the U.S. Government recognized him together with the other thousands of Filipinos by granting them as Naturalized U. S. citizen.

He was preceded in death by his wife Juanita, daughter Maria Luisa, and son Emmanuel.

He is survived by his sisters Luz Canonizado and Lily Rodrigo, both of San Diego, California; sister Divina Fe Delos Santos, Philippines; son Lito and wife Vicky, Tyler; daughter Stella, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia; grandchildren Mary Anne, Anastacio III, and Alvin, great grandchild Alexander, all of Tyler; five other grandchildren and four great grandchildren, all of whom are in the Philippines.
