In memory of Mabuhay Lion PAUL CARDONA+

    Mabuhay Lion Paul was a simple man. A hardworking, endearing family man; he loved his wife and worked
    perseveringly for his family. He was also a religious, God-fearing Catholic.  It was through the initiative of Paul
    and his wife Marcelina that they were able to have all of their families made it to America. Paul and Marcelina
    were blest with three children: Hector, Eloisa and Rebecca, with five grandchildren: Christopher, Christine,
    Nicola, Linda and Aimee. In the latter years of Paul’s life, Marcelina having preceded him in her passing, Paul
    devoted most of his time with the community, especially as a member of the Seattle Mabuhay Lions Club. It
    was apparent he felt that the only way he could thank the blessings bestowed upon him, was to give back to
    a community he so dearly cared for.

    Your Leadership, Wisdom and Friendship has left significant impression to our club. You will be greatly
    missed Lion Paul.
