Carlito Dioquino Untalan
November 28, 1945 - October 28, 2023
Carlito Dioquino Untalan was born on November 28, 1945 to Teodorico and Valeria Untalan in Pangasinan, Philippines. He was the oldest of seven children. He attended elementary and secondary school in Dagupan City, Pangasinan, Philippines. He continued to pursue business and commerce at the local college where he earned his bachelor of science in Business Administration with a focus on Accounting. He was a certified public accountant. He helped manage his parents' hardware store called Untalan Lumber and Hardware. After a few years, he decided to join the Philippine military and trained for the signal service for the Armed Forces. He was assigned to the Signal Service Battalion Communication Group (SSBCG) at Camp Emilio Aguinaldo in Quezon City. He continued to work with the Department of National Defense under Juan Ponce Enrile. He was later assigned in Malacanang for a special project under the National Power Corporation installing heavy electric power lines. He met Rebecca, the love of his life, when he was assigned to Ilocos Sur. They married and had two children, Cheryl and Noel. They continued to work and owned a little convenience store. They moved to the United States in the late 1970s. His first job upon arrival was working for TRW Electronic Products, Inc. as a receiving clerk. He resigned and entered the world of farming and planting snow peas in Nipomo, Arroyo Grande, and San Luis Obispo.
Carlito was a sharp and intelligent man even on his last day. He loved to fish, play and watch basketball, go bowling, play pool (recreationally and competitively), garden, tinker, build structures and things, and drive throughout the San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara county backroads to picnic and enjoy the splendor of the outdoors. He enjoyed riding his bike to meet friends to play pool. He was a simple and humble man who offered to help often, gave good counsel, and was continually grateful/thankful/and appreciative of simple acts. He always made sure he checked your taxes and ensured/reminded most to do their taxes.
He will long be remembered as a great, dedicated, humble, and loving husband, father, grandfather, uncle, cousin, friend, neighbor, and community member who was always there when needed. He was well-loved.
He is survived by his wife, Rebecca, daughter Cheryl and husband Steven Hernandez, son Noel, and daughter-in-law Jodi, his granddaughter Kiana and husband Daniel, his brother John and wife Lilia, his brother Salvador and wife Teresita, his youngest brother Andres and wife Marita, his many cousins, brother- and sisters-in-law, nieces, and nephews throughout the world, and his dog Roscoe of which Carlito humorously considered his nurse. He is preceded by his parents, Teodorico and Valeria Untalan, sister Gloria, brother-in-law Eddie, and brothers David and Disdado Untalan.
This wonderful, simple, humble man will always be in our hearts until eternity. We pray for the happy repose of his soul, our friend/cousin/uncle/brother/father/husband Carlito Dioquino Untalan, and that he may rest in peace.
