Laprisioso Tigoylo
Cantila, Jr.

January 28, 1935 - November 4, 2011

Laprisioso Tigoylo Cantila, Jr., 76, died peacefully November 4, 2011 with his family by his side in his home in Carson, California. He lost his ten month battle with lung cancer. He was born January 28, 1935 in Washington, Escalante, Negros Occidental, Philippines to Laprisioso and Constancia Cantila. He was the second child out of five sons. His parents were devout Jehovah's Witness and lived their lives according to their testament. Laprisioso, or Jun as he was fondly called, attended Siliman University in the Philippines studying agriculture. His lifelong dream was to travel and live in the United States. In 1961, his dream became his life as he became a member United States Navy and began recruit training in San Diego, California. In June 1964 upon his honorable discharge and reenlistment, he met his wife, Rosalinda, while vacationing in the Philippines. They began to correspond with one another from 1962 to 1964. They were married on July 5, 1964. He served in the United States Navy as a personal steward to Admiral Turner while residing in Newport, Rhode Island. In 1974, he was stationed in San Diego and ultimately, Long Beach, California. Carson became where he and his family would call home. He retired from the Navy in August 1980 where he held his ranking of 1st class petty officer. He was employed by Garrett AiResearch in Torrance, California where he assembled airplane parts for ten years. He then retired from Garrett Air Research In 1990. Upon retirement, Laprisioso pursued his love for cultivating orchids. His Canon camera was one of his prized possessions. He loved to sing and play his guitar while being surrounded by family and friends. He reserved his weekends for Laker games and Pacquiao fights. He was a devoted parishioner to his church and often served as an usher at 6:15 a.m. Mass. He loved his grandchildren more than life itself. Laprisioso is survived by his wife, Rosalinda (known as Rose or Nene); his two daughters and their husbands, Jose and June Lanuza and Robert and Jennifer Clarke; and his four grandchildren, Nicholas Clarke, Joshua Lanuza, Cassidy Clarke and Justin Lanuza. He is also survived by close family members and dearest friends. We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to the critical care unit, the oncology clinic, the radiation therapy clinic and the occupational therapy staff, (where he enjoyed the most, as he played his guitar for them) at Long Beach Veterans Hospital for their unbelievable and loving care and support. His memorial service will be held on Saturday, November 12, 2011 at St. Philomena Catholic Church in Carson, California. He will be laid to rest in Green Hills Memorial Park in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. Please sign the guestbook at www.dailybreeze.com/obits.
