Benjamin F. Pidal, age 86, of Woodinville. WA passed away peacefully on June 3, 2022 surrounded by family.
He was born on September 26, 1935, in Intramuros, Manila, Philippines to Apolinario and Paulina Feliciano. He graduated from Manila High School in 1950.
In February of 1968, he married Irene Cardiente of Pampanga, Philippines. They had three children, Marylou, Ayla, and Marilen, and divorced in 1985. Ben was a musician and traveled in different countries like Japan, Malaysia, China, Vietnam, Singapore, Europe, and Australia. He also held various professions in his lifetimes such as chef, a car salesman, and an advisor in Entertainment gambling Industry.
On 1988, he met Letecia Badon and had a son, Albert Pidal. He enjoyed traveling, singing, nightlife, Baccarat game, and meeting people. He loves to cook and entertain friends and family! He has a heart of gold, and never hesitated to help people out.
Ben was dearly loved by nearly everyone who knew him. He was a great storyteller. We will surely miss his great stories, his singing-his Frank Sinatra voice, his sense of humor, his unexpected gift-giving, his warnings about what’s happening around us, and his sincere thoughtfulness.
He is survived by his four kids~ daughter, Marylou, of Woodinville, Ayla, of Port Orchard, Marilen, and son, Albert, of Seattle, and grandkids Mariel Weidner, Elizabeth Cervantes, Ezrael Sarmiento, Alyssa Magcalas, Josiah and Nia Lofgren, and great grandchildren, Zelyna Cervantes, and Lucah. He also cherished along with a host of nieces, and nephews.
Cremation has taken place. His remains will be interred at home and would scatter the ashes as he wishes in the Philippines. On a date to be determined, as well as Celebration of Life.
Please feel free to share your fond memories of him with the family.
