Manolo Almazar

January 19, 1963 — May 4, 2024

Manolo Carabuena Almazar, affectionately known as “Noling”, “Nols” or “Papa Man”. He joined our Creator on May 4, 2024 at 61 years old. He was born on January 19, 1963 in Davao City, Philippines. Survived by Floran “Gigi”, his college sweetheart for eight years and blissfully married for 32 years. He was the fourth child of Ricardo and Maria Purificacion; endearing brother of Teresita, Maria Luningning, Ariel and the late youngest brother, Leo.

Manolo graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree, Major in Accounting and a Bachelor's Degree in Nursing. In Philippines, he worked in sales and as CNA in US. Manolo’s hobbies included cooking. He loved to watch basketball, wrestling and boxing. But he was a bowler, too.

Manolo had touched so many lives, young and old because of his good-humored and caring personality; respected but not feared by his nieces and nephews. He disciplined them in a father-like manner which won the hearts of the youth.

Manolo will always be remembered as a loving and caring son, husband, brother, uncle and best friend to those who had the pleasure to know him and spend time with him. He will be greatly missed!
