Florante Veran, a kind and selfless man, passed away with his son and wife at his side on September 20, 2023, at his home in Norwalk. Born on September 7, 1943, in Atimonan in the province of Quezon, Philippines. Florante led a remarkable life filled with love, dedication, and service to his family and community.
Florante's journey to the United States was driven by his unwavering commitment to provide better opportunities for his loved ones. He worked tirelessly at AMANO Cincinnati, Inc. for an impressive 27 years. During this time, Florante contributed his skills to a world-class manufacturer with over a century of experience in time clocks and time and attendance systems.
Education held great importance to Florante, and he earned a vocational degree in auto mechanics which he utilized passionately. His expertise in automotive mechanic work brought him much joy and satisfaction. However, beyond his career achievements, Florante's true fulfillment came from being a dedicated family man.
Separated from his family for six long years while residing in the United States, Florante made sacrifices to ensure their well-being and happiness. His dedication shone through as he petitioned for his family's immigration status to join him here in the United States. Florante's love knew no bounds as he patiently worked towards reuniting with his beloved wife Ruby and their children Marlon and Melani.
Florante will be remembered for many things but perhaps most profoundly for his acts of love that transcended words or physical touch. His heart overflowed with kindness and generosity as he consistently placed others' needs before his own without expecting anything in return. His selflessness was expressed through acts of service that touched the lives of those around him.
Moreover, Florante possessed an exceptional work ethic which made him stand out among his peers. As one of the most industrious individuals known to those who had the privilege of knowing him, Florante's dedication and commitment were truly inspiring.
Describing Florante as a man of few words would be fitting, yet his every utterance carried great significance. When he chose to speak, his words resonated with importance, leaving a profound impact on those fortunate enough to receive his wisdom.
Beyond his career and commitments, Florante took joy in his hobbies and interests. He found solace in taking care of his two dogs, two cats, four parakeets, and two turtles. An automotive enthusiast at heart, Florante found relaxation by indulging his passion for automotive mechanic work. However, one of his true pleasures was unwinding at the casino alongside his beloved wife Ruby.
Tragically, Florante's life was cut short due to Stage 4 lung cancer. His passing leaves a void that cannot be filled, but his memory and legacy will endure in the hearts of all who knew him.
Florante's proudest accomplishments extended beyond professional achievements. As soon as he retired from his dedicated career, he embraced the role of "Lolo Taxi" and babysitter for his grandchildren. With immense love and devotion, he picked up Maya, Macie, and Ryan from Montessori Children's House, Our Lady of Refuge Catholic School, and Long Beach Polytechnic High School. Florante tirelessly drove them to their various practices and games for AYSO soccer, Belmont swimming and diving classes, Center Stage ballet classes, American Gymnastic Academy, Neutral Grounds Jiu-Jitsu Academy, Mizuno Volleyball Club, Long Beach Volleyball Club, SoCal Volleyball Club, RSP Basketball Club, National Junior Basketball club, Southern California Tennis Academy, and 14 years of Kumon. Furthermore, list the sports they play at Our Lady of Refuge such as basketball, flag football, track and field, volleyball, soccer, baseball, tee-ball, and LB Poly volleyball practices. Florante's presence and support were invaluable in shaping his grandchildren into the exceptional individuals they are today. In addition, he made sure they had the opportunity to spend time with their friends by taking them everywhere. His unwavering commitment to his family is a testament to the love and dedication that defined his character.
Florante Veran leaves behind a profound legacy that will forever be cherished by his adoring family and friends. He is survived by his beloved wife Ruby, his son Marlon, his daughter Melani, his son-in-law Roderick, and his grandchildren Maya, Macie, and Ryan.
