Florante Draculan Foronda, born on December 30, 1959 in Santa Maria, Ilocos Sur, passed away on March 23, 2018, at the age of 58. Ray, as he was known to his family and friends, had a big heart with the best intentions. He cared deeply about his family and friends. His selflessness and kindness shone as he was always eager to help others in any way he could.
Ray’s laugh and smile were genuine and his good-spirited nature made him a joy to be around. He affectionately called his nieces and nephews “honey” and it was always accompanied with the biggest smile.
Ray loved all things mechanical. He was an expert with fixing anything, from car issues to air conditioning units to karaoke systems. His eyes twinkled when he shared his latest creation, which usually involved a thorough explanation of circuits and electrical components.
He is survived by his children: Janelle, Jaimelyn, Ray Jr. and Denzel.
We truly appreciate all of the love and support thus far during the family’s time of grieving. Deep in our hearts, Ray will be cherished and remembered as we cling to fond, sweet memories. Always, we love you in death the same.
Visitation will be on Saturday, March 31,2018 from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm at Jay Chapel. Prayer service will begin at 4:00 pm at Jay Chapel.
