Obituary

Wilfredo "Willie" Caro
June 9, 1933 - March 7, 2021

Wilfredo Hermano Caro, CPO, USN Retired. Willie Caro passed away on March 7, 2021 in Chula Vista, California. He was born in Passi City, on the island of Panay in the Philippines, on June 9, 1933. He was raised in Duenas until he left the Philippines to serve in the U.S. Navy for 21 years. Following his military career, Willie earned an Associates Degree at Southwestern College, and worked at the Naval Supply Center in San Diego for his second career, retiring in the late 1990’s.
Willie married Amparo "Ampy" Contrivida on November 2, 1962 in Norfolk, Virginia after meeting her at a mutual friend’s house and courting her with daily letters for over a year. They raised one (1) daughter and three (3) sons. Except for a two-year assignment at Naval Communications Station in Guam, and a long summer spent living in Hunters Point, CA, the family resided in San Diego County since 1963. Willie was active in the South Bay Fil-Am and Kahirup organizations and volunteered his service at St. Jerome's, St. Charles and St. John of the Cross Catholic Churches while he was a parishioner of each.
Willie played piano, enjoyed singing, music and gardening which he loved to share with so many family members and close friends that visited our home throughout the years. His cooking skills were legendary, most notably for his piping-hot pots of dinuguan. He also loved watching the Padres play against “his Dodgers”, and figuring out the answers to “Wheel of Fortune” or guessing “Jeopardy” questions.
Willie was a devoted and loving father to Steve (Anita), Joanne (Andy Magracia), Mark (Patty) and Greg (Joy). He treasured his time spent raising each of his 11 grandchildren A-J, Matthew, Divina, Cristi, Ryan, Hope, Tori, Jacqui, Maddie, Catherine, and Timmy. He and Ampy made time to travel on extended visits whenever Joanne's family was stationed afar to make sure they spent equal time with her children.
To help ensure others could enjoy the same success he realized emigrating to the United States from the Philippines, Willie frequently offered rooms, home cooking and free haircuts to new sailors from his hometown passing through the Naval Training Center (NTC), and was happy to share advice and answer the many questions he received from our dearest family members and friends.
Willie loved and was loved by many throughout his life. We will never stop loving and missing him.
