Lope Alejandro was born September 25th, 1933 in Angono, Rizal. He was the middle child of three and was predeceased by his infant sister, mother Severa, father Moises and brother Dominciano.
On October 8th, 1971, Lope wed Elisa and together over many years, worked very hard to sponsor family members to Canada both on the Rualo and Alejandro sides. These two wonderful people were instrumental in helping family start new lives in Canada and those family members have themselves, gone on to start families of their own and have become established, hard working Canadians.
Lope’s earlier career was as a police officer in Rizal, Philippines working his way up to the rank of a highly respected Sargent. When he immigrated to Canada in 1971, he was not able to continue his career as police officer. Instead, he drove forklift for Old Dutch Foods and then moved on to work as a dedicated carman at the Canadian Pacific Railway for over 25 years.
Lope was well known as having a hearty appetite, a fan of the TV show Columbo, being a great poker player and most of all extremely generous in helping family and friends. All those who have had Lope in their lives are forever privileged and blessed.
Lamay was held on Wednesday, May 19th at Mosaic Funeral Home. Funeral mass was officiated by Father Sam Argenziano at Holy Rosary Church on Thursday, May 20th. The service was live-streamed and can still be viewed on YouTube.
Internment will follow at a later date.
