In the early morning of August 15th, the world lost a man of character and compassion in Roman Udabe. Comforted in the arms of his wife Gracie, Roman passed from us into the loving arms of the Lord at the age of 80. Born in San Luis Obispo, in 1932, Roman Udabe began a life-long endeavor of putting the needs of others before his own. In the year of 1953, Roman met the love of his life, Gracie, while working in the canneries in Wilmington California. A few short years later, Roman began working at General Motors, where he put in 35 years of loyal service. Throughout his life, Roman worked hard to not only provide for his wife of 56 years, but to also send his five children; Roman, Yvonne, Teresa, Roger Udabe, and Stephanie to an esteemed parochial school. His life, which was an example of determination and love, became a standard for which his children live by. Romans love was felt not only by his children, but also by his son-in-laws; Mando Pueblos, Alfred Guerrero, and Steve Moralez and daughter-in-law, Connie Orozco. His legacy lives on in the minds and hearts of not only his children but the 12 grandchildren that surrounded his bed to guard him on his final journey home. While he may no longer be with us, his laughter, love, and memory; forever rings in the minds of all he touched. Romans love was felt not only by his children,but also by his sons-in-law; Mando Pueblos, Alfred Guerrero, and Steve Moralez and daughter-in-law Connie Orozco. A Vigil will be held on Monday August 20, 2012 at 730 PM at Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Wilmington. Mass will be held the following day on Tuesday August 21 at 10 AM. Interment will follow at All Souls Cemetery
