Obituary of Rafael A Romero

Rafael Angeles Romero, 78, of Randolph, NJ entered into eternal life on Thursday, April 9, 2020 due to complications resulting from Covid-19. Rafael was born on May 9, 1941 in San Fernando, Pampanga, Philippines to the late Angel and Estrella Romero. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science from the University of Santo Tomas – College of Commerce and Business Administration in 1964. In pursuit of greater opportunities abroad, Rafael and his wife ventured to North America. He obtained his MBA from McGill University in Montreal, Quebec and lived in Canada for 20 years. In 1985, the couple started a new adventure moving to New York City. Following the passing of his wife in 1999, Rafael spent the last 20 years in NJ. Rafael worked tirelessly to support his family as a software engineer with experience across multiple industries including aerospace defense, finance, healthcare and non-profits before retiring from IBM in 1999. Rafael was an avid story teller, had an insatiable interest in both global politics and the economy, enjoyed spending time with his family, playing basketball, grilling and watching sunsets over the ocean. Rafael is survived by his daughter, Rina Conti and husband Ron, son, Ritchie Romero and wife Tiffany, his grandchildren, Isabella Conti, Jacob Conti, Corrine Romero, and Richard Romero, and his brothers, Antonio Romero and Angel Romero, Jr. He was predeceased by his wife, Corona Ledda Romero. Memorial services will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Feeding America which is providing emergency food boxes for those who are suffering economic hardship as a result of COVID-19 (link below). https://secure.feedingamerica.org/site/Donation2?df_id=25997&25997.donation=form1
