Lucio Lastrollo Prades, age 90, passed away at his home in El Dorado Hills, CA on Sunday, March 17, 2019. Lucio was born in Nabua in the province of Camarines Sur, Philippines, to Regino and Aquilina Prades on September 28, 1928 and was the youngest of six children. He spent his teen and young adult life working on his parent’s farm, where he learned to cultivate the land, which produced rice, fruits, and vegetables. He married Idie Guevara Filio on January 11, 1960 in Manila, the capital of the Philippines. He served in the United States Navy during the Vietnam War and was employed as a culinary specialist aboard the USS Tortuga, USS Antietam, USS San Jose, and the USS Forrestal. He retired from the Navy after 20 years and continued working as a chef at the MCAS Miramar military base in San Diego, California until he finally retired at age 65. In retirement, he enjoyed gardening, reading, cooking, playing tennis, and going to the casino. To his family, Lucio will be remembered as a quiet, patient, and generous soul who always made sure that everyone around him was well fed.
