Ismael was born on May 9, 1933 in the Philippines, he was the second child of 5 children. He worked and apprentice as a tailor in his family tailoring business which helped him pay his way through college where he eventually received his degree in accounting. He acquired an accounting job working for the President at Malakañan Palace. Ismael married Zenaida in 1966 and had two sons, Ismaelito and Marc. In 1972, he left behind his young family to emigrate and pursue the Immigrant dream to establish a better life for his family in the United States of America. He diligently worked the majority of his career as an accountant for Central States Pension funds (30+ yrs). All the while, he worked second part time job at Marshall Field’s. He enjoyed going to work everyday and made many sacrifices along the way, so that his wife and two sons could live comfortably. He made sure that his sons received a college education. Ismael worked tirelessly in order to achieve the American Dream. He was a selfless person who willingly helped so many friends and family members. He worked hard his entire life, and he shared all that he had with the people that he loved and cared about and regularly sent money to help his siblings and family in the Philippines. Foregoing the traditional retirement age, he chose to work until he was nearly 84 years old. Ismael was a passionate gardener and cook. He enjoyed shopping for exotic ingredients and preparing special meals for his family and friends. He took immense pride in his beautiful, lush garden. Every Spring and Summer, he lovingly tended to his garden. He would spend his days planting flats of flowers, pruning, and pulling weeds. Ismael was a quiet and gentle man. He was a man of few words but when he did speak, it was often something silly and funny. He was an exemplary role model for the rest of us. He will be missed tremendously.
