Angel Espiritu Manalo, 80, passed away peacefully on June 4, 2019. Angel was born on August 2, 1938 in Rosario, Batangas, Philippines to Raymundo D. Manalo and Antonina Carpio Espiritu. He joins his siblings Solidad Manalo, Gertrudes Manalo, and Juan Manalo to be with their Lord in Heaven. He is survived by his wife of 52 years, Amparo; sister Severa Manalo; four children, Arnel, Nelson (Jamie), Angelita (Jeff) Brown, and Michael (Lan); and six grandchildren, Andrew, Bethany, Sally, Connor, Jacob, and Samuel.
Angel received his medical degree from Far Eastern University Institute of Medicine in Manila, Philippines. In 1968, Angel and Amparo moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where Angel completed his residency in Anesthesiology. Angel, Amparo and their children moved to Dayton, Ohio in 1973 where Angel started his practice as a self-employed anesthesiologist at Saint Elizabeth Medical Center. In July 1976, he joined Seiler & Scharf Anesthesiologists, Inc. as a full partner. He was very active in the Philippine Medical Society of Greater Dayton, Montgomery County Medical Society, the Phil-Am Society of Greater Dayton, and participated in medical missions in the Philippines. On November 6, 1989, he retired from practicing anesthesiology due to his heart disease.
After retiring, Angel and Amparo enjoyed life by traveling around the world with friends and family. By 2003, they moved from Dayton, Ohio to Trinity, Florida to enjoy the warmer climate. Angel was very active at Saint Vincent de Paul Church in Holiday, FL as an altar server and Eucharist minister. Because of his heart disease, he never expected to live as long as he did. So, he lived life each day like it was his last through laughter, love and faith. He truly believed that he was given the gift of life after his first heart attack and he was placed in this world to live life as God wanted and serve as many missions as possible for Him.
