Obituary of Aldwin S. Amparado

August 29, 2019

Aldwin S. Amparado, a bank modeling specialist, resident of New York City, NY, died unexpectedly on August 29, 2019, at the age of 39.
Aldwin is survived by his wife, Angela Panganiban, and his parents. He is also survived by his brothers, Pierre and Roy Jasper Amparado, and his 7-month old Lhasa Apso, Brisket.
Aldwin was born in Quezon City, Philippines on October 24, 1979, to Jun and Amelia Amparado. He graduated from the University of Santo Tomas in 2001 with a degree in Mathematics and Actuarial Sciences and worked in a career of insurance in Manila with Platinum Plans (2001-2003), AIG Philamlife (2004-2007), and Manulife (2009-2010) before moving to a career in banking with Citibank Manila (2007-2009), and Security Bank (2010-2013). December 21, 2012, was a day Aldwin considered his luckiest day in life as he married Angela, his best friend, career confidant, workout partner, and love of his life.
On May 2013, the couple took on a brand new adventure moving abroad to Hong Kong to continue their banking careers with Citibank's Asian regional headquarters. Always looking to find even bigger challenges and opportunities, Aldwin, together with Angela, moved to Citibank's headquarters in New York in 2016. He worked on behavior score models and credit risk management for the bank's global business.
On March 23, 2019, Aldwin and Angela welcomed Brisket, their beautiful Lhasa Apso, into their lives.
Aldwin was a lover of life, fully intent on maximizing time and space by exploring the world and by spending quality time with friends and family.
Aldwin was passionate about traveling. With Angela, he saw the enthralling northern lights in Norway, enjoyed pintxos in San Sebastian, explored Lord of the Rings sets in Iceland, and partied until morning in Boracay. From indulging in multiple daily Thai massages in Bangkok to taking in the overwhelming art scene in Italy, Aldwin savored every moment and found delight in these experiences.
The couple was also great aficionados of food, wine, and drinks. Aldwin sought out the best restaurants like Asador Etxebarri in Spain, Central in Lima, Pujol in Mexico and Le Bernadin in New York. But don't think that Aldwin only liked fine dining. The last meal on earth he wanted was crispy pata and his ma's lasagna and baked macaroni.
His love for adventure extended to the physical and the intellectual. He loved and excelled in bowling and was an avid CrossFitter. Extending to the intellectual, he was passionate about basketball analytics and fielded several NBA fantasy teams on three different time zones. With his strong actuarial sense and keen skill of observing human behavior, he was known to consistently clean out his opponents in poker.
He was also a "techie" and was known to automate living rooms of unsuspecting friends and family. His own home's AI-powered robots and talking machines turn on lights, entertainment systems, control temperature, even watch over the dog. Every day, Aldwin and Angela came home to Alexa's greeting, "It's great to have you back home" followed by Aldwin' s favorite Bossa Nova playlist.
Above all, Aldwin' s most endearing quality was his ability to smile and keep a wondrous childlike quality despite life's challenges. He held sacred his extensive toy collection. Every item he has kept pristine in an air-tight display cabinet in their home in Manila. He loved playing Street Fighter with his brothers across continents and time zones; he has even kept the same character through the years. He found humor in everything, no matter how serious the situation. He brought people together and his mere presence created a sense of light and peace.
He will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and all who know him.
A visitation is scheduled on September 4, 2019, from 2:00-4:00 PM and 6:00-9:00 PM at the Peter C DeLuca Funeral Home on 199 Bleecker St., New York, NY. Mass will be offered at Old St. Patrick's Cathedral on September 5, 2019, at 10:00 AM. Fr. Brian Graebe will celebrate the Mass. His body will be cremated the following day and his ashes will be transported back to the Philippines where a second wake will be held and announced at a future date.
