Memo to         :           The University Community



Subject            :           Fr Luis G Candelaria SJ, 95






​

It is with deep sadness that we inform the University community of the
passing away of another beloved Jesuit, Fr Luis G Candelaria. Known fondly
as “Fr Candy” by his students and “Lolo” by younger Jesuits, he returned to
our Creator in the morning of Wednesday, 30 July 2014. He was 95 years old.



Throughout his long years of service to the university, Fr Candy humbly yet
cheerfully accepted the various assignments given to him. Grade School
Headmaster (1958–59 and 1961–62), Director of the Publications Office and
University Press (1964–66), and High School Principal (1983–85) are just a
few of the administrative roles that he had to take on. Yet it was in
teaching—in mentoring hundreds, if not thousands, of students in Theology
and Business Management—that Fr Candy found his greatest fulfillment and
joy. Alumni and former students still warmly recall his passionate
lectures, and his hearty laughter and *joie de vivre.*



Born in Mabalacat, Pampanga on 2 June 1919, Fr Candy entered the Society of
Jesus on 7 September 1942 and was ordained to the priesthood on 18 June
1950 in Woodstock, Maryland, USA.



Fr Candelaria is currently being waked at the Immaculate Conception Chapel
of the Loyola Schools. Memorial Masses are held every evening at 8:00. The
Funeral Mass will be on Monday, 4 August 2014 at the Church of the Gesù.



We request the Ateneo community to remember Fr Candy, his family, and his
Jesuit brothers in your prayers.







Jose Ramon T Villarin SJ

President
