Almolo De Los Reyes Bacos passed away peacefully at home in Salinas on April 24, 2020, with family at his side. Born on March 27, 1927 in Banate, Iloilo, Philippines, he was the youngest of five children of Severino and Espectacion Bacos.
He was preceded in death by his wife of 60 years, Josefina Villaruel, who passed away in 2017.
Al proudly served in the US Army, receiving the Bronze Star Medal for distinguished service during the Vietnam War. Assignments took him from Korea, Japan, Germany and back to the United States. Retiring after 20 years of military service, Al continued working for the US Postal Service in Salinas.
Friends and family fondly remember his generosity and willingness to help, especially for other military families. We loved his passion for the San Francisco 49ers, fishing, barbecuing and gathering with friends. His life was full, even during retirement years, traveling long distances to visit kids and grandchildren, maintaining his beautiful yard, working out regularly at the gym and driving anywhere.
Al is survived by his children Roselyn Powers, Joyce Stubee & Charles Bacos; and grandchildren Melissa Jorna, Zak Powers, John Ray Bacos & Hannah Stubee.
