Cramwel “Manny” Tegerero, 31, of Edgecomb, passed away Sept. 27 at his home with his loving family by his side, after a period of declining health. Born on Feb. 12, 1986 in Manila, Philippines, he was the son of Roque and Merlyn (Mangaring) Tegerero.
Manny was born in the Philippines, but moved to the U.S. in 2002 when he was 16 years old. He was such a happy man, and could light up a room with his jokes, smile and laughter. He loved watching television, especially tagalog soap operas.
Manny loved to sing and listen to love songs; he would cry every time he heard, or someone sang, “Somewhere Down the Road” by Barry Manilow. He loved to eat, play with his sister, nieces and nephews, and make people laugh. He will be sorely missed by his entire extended family, and all that knew him.
Manny is survived by his parents, Roque and Merlyn Tegerero; sisters, Evangeline Absalud and Rowena Tegerero; nieces and nephews, Angelica Rodriguez, Dean Tegerero, Giemelia Absalud, and Giemel King Absalud; brother-in-law, King Melchor Absalud; and many friends and extended family both here and in the Philippines.
A viewing and prayer service for Manny was held Oct. 2 at the Strong-Hancock Funeral Home in Damariscotta.
