Obituary of Simon Galvez PRINCIPIO

November 13, 1941 - Baliwag, Bulacan, Philippines
November 28, 2020 – Calgary, Alberta

Simon Galvez Principio, beloved husband for 52 years of Marciana, father to his four daughters, Secelyn, Selly, Sally and Simmer; grandfather to seven grandchildren: Keirston, Levi, Taylor, Landon, Seleste, Alexander and Ava, of Calgary, AB, passed away on Saturday, November 28, 2020 at the age of 79 years.

Simon was born in Baliwag, Bulacan, Philippines on November 13, 1941. Determined to provide for his family, he made the courageous decision to immigrate to Toronto, ON, in 1973. There, he built a fulfilling life for his family working as a nurse’s assistant at Toronto Western Hospital.

Where there is deep grief, there was great love. And Simon was deeply loved. Fiercely protective of his family, Simon’s legacy is that of love and devotion. He was beloved by all who were blessed to know him. Simon had a great sense of humour and the most infectious smile. Generous with his love and time, he instilled in his daughters the values of respect, resilience and commitment.

Along with his loving wife, daughters and grandchildren, Simon is survived by his siblings, Marcelina Bernardo, Crispina Munoz, Emelita Fabian and Imelda Sta Ines. Simon was predeceased by siblings, Lorenzo Principio, Crisencia Tolosa, Lucila Baldorado, Zenaida Mislang, Amado Principio and Jimenez Principio.
