Crestoto Aquino, lovingly known as Tito, gracefully departed this world on December 18, 2023. Born on May 17, 1949, in the picturesque town of Rosario, Batangas, Tito's life was a testament to resilience and dedication. With his untiring determination and entrepreneurial spirit, he carved a path that led him to become the esteemed owner of the CMA Farm in Batangas, a renowned poultry farm. Tito's journey was marked by invaluable partnerships with Vitarich Corp., San Miguel Corp. and Sustamina as part of his business affiliations.
Though his educational pursuits initially led him towards a degree in Electrical Engineering, Tito chose a different path when he entered the sacred bond of marriage. His unwavering devotion to his family inspired him to transition into a businessman and provide for his loved ones wholeheartedly.
Beyond his professional accomplishments, Tito will be fondly remembered for his warm and loving presence within his family circle. The holidays were particularly meaningful for him as he relished in spending quality time with loved ones. Christmas and New Year's became cherished traditions when he would prepare his famous bulalo and beef steak, creating an atmosphere brimming with love and delectable aromas.
Tito's captivating personality endeared him to all those who had the privilege of crossing paths with him. He possessed a remarkable sense of humor that brought laughter to every gathering. His outgoing nature made him the life of the party, always ensuring that everyone felt included and welcome. Moreover, Tito exemplified kindness and generosity, consistently extending a helping hand to those in need.
One could easily spot Tito indulging in his hobbies and passions during moments of leisure. Collecting cars became not merely a pastime but an expression of his appreciation for beauty on four wheels. As he embarked on adventures across various countries worldwide, he delighted in witnessing different cultures and experiencing their diverse cuisines. His love for food, especially meat, was unparalleled. It was no surprise to find Tito traversing the Philippines, exploring different churches and seeking solace in prayer.
Amidst the tapestry of his life, Tito's proudest achievements were rooted in his unyielding devotion to family. Establishing his own poultry farm stood as a testament to his unwavering determination. But beyond tangible success, Tito deeply cherished the act of providing sustenance and love to those he held dear.
Tito's memory will forever be etched in the hearts of those who survive him. He leaves behind his beloved wife, Gloria de Leon Aquino, who shared and nurtured a lifelong bond that braved both triumphs and challenges. Together they raised their three precious children: Geraldine Aquino-Andres, Ghen Aquino-Dela Torre, and Christian Aquino. Tito's unwavering love for these young souls has indelibly shaped their lives, providing a guiding light even in times of darkness.
In honoring the life of Crestoto Aquino, we acknowledge that his physical presence may have departed from our midst, but his spirit will forever linger in our memories. His legacy lives on as a gentle reminder of the love and resilience that can flourish even amidst life's most arduous trials.
