Angelo Quinto passed away on Saturday, December 26th at the age of 30. He is reunited with his cousin, his uncle, and some of his dear friends in heaven. Angelo was born in the Philippines, but moved to the United States (U.S.) in middle school. He graduated from Berkeley High School in 2008, and proceeded to attend Berkeley City College. He spent a year living in Houston, Texas before moving back to the Bay Area.
His creativity, humor, and drive will be missed greatly by his family and friends. He leaves behind his mother, Cassandra, his stepfather, Robert, his two younger siblings, Andrei and Isabella, and his close cousin, Miguel. As well, he is further survived by other close relatives and friends, who will remember his great ambition, his abundance of grand ideas and many talents, and his constant strive for happiness and success. The animals in his life, Clethorp, Toto, and Oliver, will never forget the love, care, and generosity he shared with them. He enjoyed fishing, drawing, creating, strategizing, cooking, and spending time with those he cared for.
He dreamt of having a career in the U.S. Navy, and worked long and hard to achieve that dream. In training, he took on a valuable leadership role and proved his bravery, as well as all the wonderful things he was capable of. Although honorably discharged for medical reasons, he tried to remain positive, and assured everyone that the Navy was not a closed chapter in his life. In the next months––and as a growing pandemic was to beset the world––he decided his next move was to explore another big dream of his. He worked tirelessly until his passing to start a career in online gaming. A true testament to his ambition, faith, and strength, he was driven to achieve his goal and value the journey to that achievement, as well as hopefully even venture into the world of video game design.He believed he had a guardian angel watching over him, giving him strength and security, when and where it was hard to find; and in his passing we know that he is the guardian angel watching over us, giving us strength and security, when and where it is hard to find.
