Obituary of Carlos Policarpio

Carlos Policarpio was born to the parentage of Amando Policarpio and Romana De Guzman on August 10, 1939 in Manila, Philippines. He departed this life on June 4, 2020. Carlos was full of life. Although well accomplished in in the management of family transportation company, his greatest accomplishment was being a loving husband, father and grandfather.

He was joined in Holy matrimony to Minda Tubeo on March 21, 1978. God blessed them with four children Joseph, Gerard, Charmaine, and Marion. Carlos accepted Christ at an early age and was an active member of the Catholic Church. He was a member of various Church groups including Brotherhood of Christian Businessman, Oasis of Love Community, and Knights of Columbus. Carlos attended college at the University of East, Manila with Bachelor’s degree in Banking and Finance.

Carlos moved to the United States in 1998. He continued to serve God as a member of St. Paul Catholic Church, Bukas Loob ng Dios, his community, and his family by striving to be a doting father and grandfather. I’m certain if you were to speak with Carlos, he would tell you serving God, being the head of his family, and being a grandparent was his greatest joy in life.      

Carlos spent most of his time thinking about and praying for others. Words from his family echo, “Carlos prayers surround them”. Without a doubt, Carlos’s life was guided by his love of God, faith, and his strong desire to see his family succeed.

He leaves to cherish precious memories with his wife, Minda Policarpio; one daughter, Charmaine McCoy, son in law Shawn McCoy and granddaughters Aria and Avery McCoy; three sons Joseph Policarpio, Gerard Policarpio, and Marion Policarpio, daughter in law Sully Policarpio and grandsons Aiden and Alexander Policarpio; one sister Nenita Policarpio; Two brothers, Cesar Policarpio and sister in law Genara Policarpio (deceased), Nestor Policarpio and sister in law Elizabeth Policarpio; and a host of nieces and nephews.

Scripture

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters.[1] 3 He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness[2] for his name’s sake. 4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,[3] I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. 6 Surely[4] goodness and mercy[5] shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell[6] in the house of the Lord forever.[7]

Poem

When I’m Gone

When I come to the end of my journey
And I travel my last weary mile
Just forget if you can, that I ever frowned
And remember only the smile 

Forget unkind words I have spoken
Remember some good I have done
Forget that I ever had heartache
And remember I've had loads of fun 

Forget that I've stumbled and blundered
And sometimes fell by the way
Remember I have fought some hard battles
And won, ere the close of the day 

Then forget to grieve for my going
I would not have you sad for a day
But in summer just gather some flowers
And remember the place where I lay 

And come in the shade of evening
When the sun paints the sky in the west
Stand for a few moments beside me
And remember only my best
