Jorge Villarante Ragde M.D. Obituary
February 22, 1929 - January 4, 2018 Born in San Carlos, Visayas, the Philippines, to Tomas and Susana, both teachers, the fourth of five children, Jorge earned his medical degree at the University of Santo Tomas. He completed his surgical residency in New York where he met his wife, Lucille Lester. They moved to Southern California, where Jorge was in private practice until 1971 when he undertook a thoracic-cardiovascular residency at Good Samaritan and Children's Hospitals in Los Angeles. He retired at the age of 63, with a career that spanned nearly four decades. Jorge was a passionate fan of all LA sports teams and loved golf, music and blackjack. Jorge is survived by Lucille, their three children, Susan Gutterman, Kimberly Roach, Jorge Ragde, Jr., and seven loving grandchildren. Memorial services will be held at 2:00 pm, January 13th, at Our Lady of Malibu Church. The family expresses their deepest gratitude to Jorge's longtime caregivers at Country Villa Rehabilitation Center. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in his memory to Children's Hospital LA Foundation or Holy Cross Hospital Foundation, Mission Hills.
