Subject: REV. FR. PAUL LABARETTE MANZANO, RIP

We are very sad to inform you about the passing of our beloved
REV. FR. PAUL LABARETTE MANZANO.

Rev. Father Paul Manzano was born and grew up in Tagudin, Ilocos Sur. He entered the seminary
in the Philippines and continued his studies for priesthood in Rome where he was ordained in
St. Peter's Basilica on December 18, 1960. After which, he returned to the Philippines and
celebrated his first mass in Tagudin, Ilocos Sur on December 8, 1961. Then he was assigned
in the Diocese of Cagayan for 7 years. He migrated to the United States in 1972 and served in the
parishes of Artesia and Norwalk in Southern California. While he was in the area, he founded
the TAGUDINIAN ASSOCIATION OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA (TASC). Seeing a number of
Tagudinians gathered together in the occasion of two house blessings of fellow Tagudinians
(1974-1975), Fr. Manzano called a meeting in 1975 which marked the beginning of the birth of a
family-oriented organization, the TASC.

Then in 1981, he was assigned in the Diocese of Sacramento in Northern California. While
he was in the Diocese, he became a Chaplain in the California Army National Guard and attained
the rank of Army Major in Camp Roberts, CA. He celebrated his Silver Jubilee as a priest in
1985 and his Golden Jubilee in 2010.

In his retirement, he continues to be active in serving man and the Lord and lived life to the
fullest. He celebrates the Holy Mass where he would be invited, talked to those who needed
his spiritual advice. He was friendly, fatherly or brotherly to everybody. His goodness and
kindness will remain etched in the hearts of those whose lives he had touched.

We are blessed to have shared Father Manzano's friendship and guidance over the past
39 years here in Southern California Thank you for your loving service, dedication and vision.


Farewell Reverend Father Paul L. Manzano. We will always remember you, Father.



TASC FAMILY
