Hernando Lansangan, Jr Obituary

Hernando Selerio Lansangan, Jr., a man of gentle spirit and keen intellect, passed away peacefully in Riverside, California, on March 17, 2024, at the age of 61. He was born on October 21, 1962, in the Philippines, where his early life was filled with the warmth of a large and loving family. Hernando's journey eventually led him to the United States in his mid-twenties, where he pursued and achieved a degree in Respiratory Therapy, a field where he would leave a lasting impact through years of dedicated service.

Hernando is survived by a loving family that includes his cherished daughter, Karrina Lansangan; his devoted brother, Ron Lansangan; and his five adoring sisters, Albine Blanche, Winnie Ferrer, Jojo Robles, Diana Gonzalez, and Gretchen Lansangan. His memory will also be treasured by numerous nieces and nephews, who found in him a quiet source of wisdom and inspiration.

His educational journey began in his native Philippines and continued in the United States, where Hernando's passion for science and service coalesced into a career that allowed him to help others breathe easier. As a Respiratory Therapist, he was respected by colleagues and patients alike for his intelligence and analytical approach to patient care. His work was not just a job; it was a calling that Hernando answered with diligence and compassion every day.

Away from his professional life, Hernando was a man of many interests, with a particular passion for building model cars, boats, and helicopters. His mechanical mind found solace and joy in the intricate details of his creations. A perfect day for him was one spent immersed in his hobby, with the sounds of tiny engines and the laughter of family mingling in the background. Despite his quiet and private nature, the joy of these moments was an open book for all who knew him.

Those who had the privilege of knowing Hernando would describe him as intelligent, analytical, and gentle. His presence brought a calming influence, and his thoughtful insights were often sought after by friends and family. In the words of Albert Einstein, "The only source of knowledge is experience," a quote that resonates deeply with the life Hernando led. He was a man who believed in learning through doing, and his experiences enriched not only his life but also those of the people around him.

Hernando's legacy is one of quiet strength, unwavering dedication, and a profound ability to find beauty in the details. His life was a testament to the power of a gentle soul in a bustling world, and his memory will continue to serve as a beacon of inspiration to all who had the honor of knowing him.
