Calling the Lost Relatives of Camilo Omaña Villanueva Sr.

The author got this email from Mr. Villanueva Sr.:


Dear Sorsogon group,
Can you publish that my father, Camilo Omaña Villanueva Sr, passed away in 2013? He was a native son of Sorsogon, born in 1936. He was five when the Japanese invaded, and became an orphan. His father, mother, and older brother died during the occupation. He was able to escape to Manila to stay with relatives and eventually left for the US in the 1950s, but lost touch with his brothers and sisters.
My father became an American citizen in 1976 and visited Sorsogon in 1998 with me, his son, Camilo Omaña Villanueva, Jr, now living in Nagoya, Japan. His dream was to reunite with his sisters and brothers, but could never locate them before he died. If anyone knows or has heard of him, perhaps they would remember my father. I hope to one day meet my relatives.
Camilo Omaña Villanueva, Jr.


For those who know Mr. Villanueva Sr., please don’t hesitate to reply back on the comments section with your email address. I will surely forward your message.

Salamatunon tabi!

    • Hi, this is COV Jr.

      To my father’s family, I’m sorry to say he passed away on May 1, 2013 in Oakland, California. I have been actively searching for his relatives since 1998. He lost touch with his sister, and yes, it was in New Orleans that he first arrived. However, I would like to talk to you more about this since we are all very skeptical and shocked if this is true, that we’ve finally found you. I am sorry to hear that Purita has recently died but Gloria is still living. Can anyone ask her about my father? I would like some more details from her to confirm that this is true. How old is she now? How old was Purita? And can you tell me about his other family, their names, etc. Thanks so much.

      Please mail me at [edited] when you can.

      Best regards,

      Camilo Villanueva
