MASS OF CHRISTIAN BURIAL
Obituary of Numeriano O. "Nomer" Tan
Numeriano O. Tan, known as Nomer, died Friday, July 26, 2019 in a swimming accident at Virginia Beach. He was on vacation with his family after having turned 66 at the beginning of the month. Nomer was born and raised in the Philippines, then moved to Canada after being petitioned by his family settled in Toronto. He later moved to the US to be with his wife and family.
In his life, Nomer was a man of many trades. He juggled work and school to sustain a college degree, having worked as an auditor for a major company in the Philippines (PHILUSA), a textile-manufacturer in Toronto (Gentry Knitting Mills), an accountant in New York (John C. Mandel Security Bureau), and finally left the workforce to ease the hectic day-to-day schedule of a growing family. He was quite the handy-man and enjoyed working on house projects from furniture construction to gardening, and loved to cook and bake. Nomer will be greatly remembered for being a man who always extended a helping hand, and who was a warm and hospitable conversant to anyone regardless of their status or position in life.
Nomer has been a resident of Princeton for the past fourteen years, and a member of St. Augustine of Canterbury Church. His legacy is remembered by his wife, Imelda Marquez-Tan, and his five children, Betina (22), Emmanuel (17), MarkLouis (16), Elijah (12) and ElleMarie (10).
