Joaquin "Jake" Nierras Obituary
JOAQUIN "JAKE" VELEZ NIERRAS
Joaquin "Jake" Velez Nierras was born on May 19, 1946 in Cebu, Philippines to Arturo and Esperanza Nierras. To all who knew Jake, he was a charismatic and jokester kind of guy who had a talent of making people laugh. He knew how to charm a room and was a type of person where everyone wanted to be his friend. He knew how to have fun and most of all, a loyal friend to the end.
Jake dedicated a good portion of his life loving and serving the Lord as he would spread the Word whenever he got an opportunity. Whether it would be during a long traffic cab ride or waiting in line, he'll ask a perfect stranger if they believe in God and ask if they are saved. After having an animated conversation, not skipping a beat, with all his charms and geniality, as usual he makes another friend.
On Sunday, July 16, 2017, Jake passed away in Cebu, Philippines. He was 71. Jake is survived by his wife - Aurora Nierras; two sons - Adrian Arthur Nierras and Andrew Joseph Nierras; a daughter-in-law - Gina de Leon Nierras; two daughters - Arlene Therese "Nierras" Brockenborough and Arlyn Banda Nierras; a son-in-law - Kevin Louis Brockenborough, Jr; a grandson - Andrew Joshua Nierras; adopted son and family - Hari Cedre and Melissa Sos with Noah, Jeremiah, and Elijah.
