Victorio, was born on May 14, 1945, in Makati, Philippines to Lorenzo Castillo Escorpizo and Teodora Puzon. He went by the nicknames Vic, Victor, Vicki (to his family and friends while growing up) and Isko (to his high school friends), but most of all, answered to "Mahal" (Filipino translation for "Dear") with his wife Brenda. Vic received the last rites of the Sacrament of Extreme Unction and died a holy and peaceful death on January 12, 2012. He was a long-time parishioner of St. Thomas More Traditional Roman Catholic Church (SSPX) in Sanford, FL, where his death was celebrated at a Requiem Mass on January 17, 2012, before he was laid to rest at the Chapel Hill Cemetery in Orlando, Florida. He attended Cubao High School in Quezon City, Philippines and ended up teaching there as well after graduating from Philippine College of Arts and Trades with a Bachelor's Degree in Education in 1969. He also attended the University of the Philippines, where he took some graduate courses. He was also a Master Scout of the Boy Scouts of the Philippines. He was introduced to Brenda Ferrer, an accountant, who was then a resident of Flushing, New York, by their mutual friends Ramon and Carmelita Zerrudo of Toronto, Canada in December 1972. They corresponded regularly for a year until they finally met in person when Brenda went home to Manila to visit her parents in December 1973 for Christmas. Vic then migrated from the Philippines to New York in August 1974. On September 21, 1974, Vic and Brenda got married at St. Michael's Church in Flushing, New York. Their only child, Bernice F. Escorpizo, was born on January 10, 1976. Sadly, Bernice spent her recent birthday by her Dad's sickbed. Although a teacher back in the Philippines, Vic opted not to teach in New York and instead went in the banking industry. He worked for several banks and served as a Foreign Exchange Supervisor for Bancomer, a Mexican bank. Vic and Brenda moved to Orlando, Florida in August 2001. Here he worked for Wachovia Bank, and then became a self-employed Insurance Agent. All these years, he also worked part-time at Best Buy, where he made many friends, both co-workers and some customers. Vic enjoyed playing his guitar and ukulele, as well as listening to music. He was well-versed in computer, enjoyed learning languages, photography, and was an avid reader. He was a wonderful cook who liked experimenting with recipes. He loved to garden, go fishing, enjoyed traveling and cruising. He had a very good sense of humor and had fun making people laugh. Considered a very sociable gentleman, he is well respected in the Filipino community, and was very proud of his heritage. Vic will be greatly missed by his family and many friends. He was a close family man and a very dedicated husband, father, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, and a dear friend to so many people. He is survived by his wife of 38 years, Brenda F. Escorpizo of Orlando, FL; daughter, Bernice F. Escorpizo of Denver, CO; sisters, Evangeline E. Atkinson (London, England), Aurora Escorpizo (Manila, Philippines), Sylvia and Cherry Escorpizo (Pangasinan, Philippines); brother, Benjamin Escorpizo (Manila, Philippines); niece Amihan Escorpizo (Manila, Philippines); nephews Anoi Atkinson (London, England), James Escorpizo (Tripoli, Libya), Abner and Bobet Tarroza (Manila, Philippines).
