Vicente Eclar Mamaril: Oct. 8, 1933-Nov. 7, 2017



Vicente Eclar Mamaril was called by his Savior Jesus Christ on Nov. 7, 2017, in Oak Harbor. His wife of 51 years Carmen preceded his death on July 3, 2013.

Vicente was born in Subic, Zambales, Philippines, on Oct. 8, 1933, where he worked as a professional driver until moving to Yokosuka, Japan, in 1995. In 2005, he moved to Oak Harbor, where he resided until his death.

He is survived by his oldest daughter Maria Victoria and her husband Tom; his youngest daughter Gerlie and her husband Charles; and his three grandchildren, Charles Vincent, Richard Anthony and James Nicholas. He is also survived by his older sister Dominga Dulatre of Toronto, Canada, and younger brother Antonio Mamaril of San Diego. Also his niece Rosario Mamaril Mendoza, her husband Amado and their three children, his grandchildren Cylina and Neil, who cared for him during his stay in the hospital in the Philippines, and Amyrose of Melbourne, Australia.

Vicente will always be remembered for his great fondness of cha-cha dancing, western and action movies, and his love of music from Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra. Those closest to him can also attest to his deep humor and charm.

A viewing service was held at Wallin Funeral Home on Friday, Nov. 10, and funeral mass was 10 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 11, at St. Augustine’s Catholic Church followed by graveside service at Maple Leaf Cemetery.

“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away” (Rev. 21:4).
