LORETO F. SARMIENTO 1948 - 2009 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Loreto Sarmiento, aged 61, on Tuesday, October 20, 2009 at the Deer Lodge Centre. Left to cherish Loreto's memory are his loving wife Julie of 33 years, his only daughter Heidi Lynn (Howie), granddaughter Olivia. He is survived by brother Edgar (Belen), sisters Mila (Ramon) and Evelyn (Renato) of Philippines. Loreto was born in the Philippines and immigrated to Canada in 1976. He studied fine arts and graduated from the University of Santo Tomas in the Philippines where he had majored in advertising. He furthered his education at Red River Community College where he had obtained a certificate in Graphic Design. Prior to the tragic turn of events, he was employed as a graphics designer with All Canadian Emblem for 21 years before succumbing to his illness in 1997. Although he was an active member of the Filipino community, he always found the time to pursue his love for music and art. Loreto will always be remembered for his outgoing nature and his light-hearted spirit. He was predeceased by his parents Jose Sr. and Caridad; brothers, Rogelio, Jose Jr., Ernesto, Oscar and Dennis. He will be greatly missed by his in-laws, Victoria, Trini, Ester, Lucy (Thomas), Sammy (Divine), Onie (Edna), Abeth (Tina), Remie (Elmer), Ely, Vilma and Panching; nephews and nieces, Jocelyn Ereno family, Agnes Sarmiento family, Brenda Ang family, Maricar Sarmiento, Ever Sarmiento family, Lea Ramos family, Leo Escanilla family, James, Orly Marce family, Marc, Jenny, Mark, Michael, Kimberly, Kevin and numerous nephews, nieces, relatives and friends.
