Richard Sarinas was born in the Philippine Islands in 1921. In Aug. 1945, he enlisted in the US Navy and served on submarines for most of his career. After his last assignment on the aircraft carrier, the USS Ranger, he was released from Active Duty to Fleet Reserve as Senior Chief Petty Officer in June 1966.
After his career in the US Navy, he was employed by Wells Fargo Bank in the Registered Mail Dept. and retired after 15 years as Operations Supervisor.
Richard met and married Priscilla Akbay, RN, in Honolulu, HI in April 1951. They had two children, Priscilla SA Sarinas, MD, and P Susan Sarinas. Priscilla (Sr) and Priscilla (Jr) preceded him in death in 1921. He is survived by daughter, Susan (Tom Nakashima), and granddaughter, Rosemarie Sarinas-Wong (father, Kim Wong).
Richard and Priscilla were long-time parishioners of the Church of Epiphany in SF and sang in the Choir. They also founded the Filipino Society at the parish. Richard was known for his delicious cooking and flaky apple pies. Richard and Priscilla loved ballroom dancing and they are now dancing together again.
