Obituary for Tomas Bustos Gutierrez

Tomas Bustos Gutierrez, 85, of El Dorado Hills, CA, passed peacefully at his home on his favorite day of the week, Sunday, December 24, 2017, surrounded by his loving family. Born in Pampanga Philippines on June 20, 1932, Tomas was the son of the late Esteban and Anastasia (Bustos) Gutierrez.

After a life-long and successful career as a Self-Employed Architect and Contractor, and leaving a notable mark on the Metro Manila area of the Philippines, Tomas Naturalized to the United States in 2015 and recently celebrated his Golden Wedding Anniversary in April of this Year. Though he achieved and took great pride in the many accomplishments throughout his life, it was those of his children and grandchildren, which he was most proud. Tomas instilled in each of them, many strong core values, but none more important than that of the Chivalrous manner in which he demonstrated his Love and Devotion for his bride of 50 years, Sonia, each and every day, whether it was his dry sense of humor, his soft-spoken manner, the twinkle in his eye when he smiled at her, their walking hand-in-hand or the extension of his own, to help her in or out of the car, as well as up and down the stairs, A TRUE GENTLEMAN!.

A loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend, Tomas will be deeply missed by his wife, Sonia (Pengson) Gutierrez, his brother, Ignacio Gutierrez of Quezon City, Philippines, his Nine Children, Mary Ann Engalla and her husband Rhoniel of Brampton, Canada, Leslie M.
