Pedro Liwanag, better known as "Boy" or "Pedrito"
06/18/2021

Pedro Liwanag, better known as “Boy” or “Pedrito”, was born in Manila, Philippines on December 26, 1950 to his father, Tomas Liwanag, and his mother, Eustaquia Patawaran. He passed away at the age of 70 on June 18, 2021 in Downers Grove, IL.

He grew up in Caloocan City in the Philippines, where he enjoyed playing basketball, playing mahjong, and fishing. Pedro was very social, and loved going out with his friends, and continued to remain close to many of them over the years.

After obtaining a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing at the Manila Central University in 1975, he came to the United States in 1977 to join his brothers and sisters, and pursue the “American Dream”. In his early years, he lived in Chicago, Illinois, where he shared an apartment with his brother and sister in the Bucktown neighborhood, and worked at St. Mary’s of Nazareth Hospital in the Surgery Department. 

In 1978, he met his future wife, Emelita (“Emy”) neé Maniago, at St. Mary’s of Nazareth Hospital. Emy and Pedro were married soon after in 1979, and eventually settled down in Westmont, Illinois, and welcomed their two sons, Peter and Jerry. Pedro spent most of his career working at Good Samaritan Hospital in the Surgery Department, until retiring in 2016.

A loving husband, father, brother, and friend, Pedro was the life of the party, and enjoyed entertaining. He was an excellent cook, and had signature dishes, including the best homemade hamburgers, an infamous squid dish (that no one could replicate), and a secret marinade for Filipino BBQ. Pedro was also an avid fisherman, and taught his own sons this passion, where they would fish together locally, but also throughout the Midwest. A supporting Lolo, he served his “Apo-stolic” Duty by taking care of his granddaughters when they visited his home, and of course, feeding them.  Pedro was an excellent Karaoke singer, and was particularly fond of Frank Sinatra hits, and enjoyed singing duets with his siblings at family parties until the wee hours of the night.

Pedro is survived by his wife, Emy of 42 years, his two children, Peter and Jerry (Dow), and his 4 granddaughters, Abby, Lauren, Leah, and Alaina Liwanag. He is also survived by 7 brothers and sisters, Rosita (Fernando) Javate, Linda (the late Nolie) Bacalor, Phillip (Perla) Liwanag, Angelina (Ernesto) Garcia, Mario (Josephine) Liwanag, Rosalinda (Edmund) Szutowicz, and Rose Padilla, and 21 nieces and nephews. Pedro is preceded in death by his father, Tomas Liwanag, his mother Eustaquia Patawaran, his father-in-law Geronimo Maniago, and his mother-in-law Aquilina Maniago. 

Pedro’s family and friends were happy and privileged to return his love, companionship, and friendship by caring, loving, and visiting him. He will be forever missed, and never forgotten. 

Visitation: Friday, June 25, 2021 from 3:00 pm – 8:00 pm (Rosary Prayer at 6:00 pm, and Words of Remembrance at 7:00 pm) at Adolf Funeral Home & Cremation Services, Ltd. 7000 S. Madison Street, Willowbrook.

Funeral and Burial Service: Saturday, June 26, 2021. Mass at 10:30 am at Our Lady of Peace Catholic Church, 701 Plainfield Road, Darien. Entombment: Clarendon Hills Cemetery Mausoleum, 6900 S Cass Ave, Darien, IL.
