The family of Luis M. Santiago regrets to announce the sudden passing of our beloved Toto. He was born on September 22, 1966 in Pasay City, Philippines. He passed away on February 12, 2014 in Ladysmith. The cause of death was duodenal/gastric ulcer.

Luis was a hard worker, generous, kind hearted, carefree and free spirited person. He was an avid artist, landscaper, chef, loves to sing, dance and write.

He went to Humber College for Graphic Design and worked at Western Forest Products and Safeway Canada Ltd.

Luis leaves behind his son Joshua who was the one true love of his life, his father Luis and step-mother Natividad, his siblings Andre, Lazara, Luz, Luisa, Edgar and Mateo. He also leaves his brothers-in-law Arthur, Cleve and Fritz, and sisters-in-law Melanie and Melissa as well as his 9 nephews,13 nieces, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Predeceased by his loving mother Cristina whose arms are waiting for him in Heaven.

Luis was a gentle soul who searched for ways to share his talents. Always first to offer a helping hand and to extend kind words to strangers. His smile and happy outlook was a bright light in our lives. He left us way too soon.
