Abe was a longtime Engineer and Metallurgist at the University of Minnesota from the late 1960’s to the 1990’s.
Abe was an endless supporter of his family and the Filipino community. With his creativity he provided amazing costumes and set props for several community productions that were directed by his dear wife, Estelita. Also, he was instrumental and dedicated in the creation of Fil-Minnesotan Seniors. Abe, very well known for his cooking ability, provided food to hundreds of people. His Lumpia (Egg Rolls) were a big hit inside and outside the Filipino community. Because of all this, he was presented with several awards for his dedication and service.
As a husband and father, he supported his wife and son in the many activities they participated in. He loved watching Estelita’s high school and community productions as well as going to his son’s (Allen) athletic events.
He has been a beloved pillar in the Filipino community. He will not only be remembered for his cooking and his service, but his humor and brotherly friendship and most importantly as a loving husband and father.
