Also known by Rollie, Ruling, Papa Lorets or Papa Reto to friends and loved ones, he always gave joy to both relatives and friends. He had an infectious smile and a laugh that could fill a room, especially when telling stories or sharing anecdotes from his youth. He was always known to be a sharp dresser with a great sense of style.

He earned a degree in Accounting from the Lyceum of the Philippines while working as an Examiner at the Bureau of Internal Revenue and Auditor at the GSIS ( Government Service Insurance System ).

He came to the US in 1992 and starting working at Lenox and Park Plaza hotels. It was at the Lenox where he met the future Mayor of Boston, Thomas M. Menino.

He took great pride in having been able to serve the Mayor and the City of Boston until his Retirement in 2014.

Throughout his long journey, he got to know people from all walks of life. Many of them became lifelong friends who always remained near and dear to his heart. That was his gift.

Rest well, Papa. We will miss you. Give Mama a big hug and kiss from all of us. ❤️
