Reynaldo Ramos Baquiran

August 8, 1944 — December 6, 2023


Reynaldo Ramos Baquiran, devoted husband, father, and grandfather, has passed away at the age of 79. Born on July 8, 1944, in Cavite, Philippines.  He was a son of the late Armando Santos Baquiran and Constancia Ramos Baquiran.

One of Reynaldo's proudest accomplishments was earning his bachelor's degree in architecture – a testament to his unwavering perseverance and dedication to his craft. His diploma represented not only the culmination of years of hard work but also a symbol of his unwavering commitment to excellence.

Reynaldo invested his skills and boundless creativity in designing schools, laboratories, office buildings, and numerous other commercial structures throughout the country. His architectural masterpieces stood as a testament to his commitment to functionality and aesthetic beauty. The legacy of his work can be seen in the halls of learning, workplaces buzzing with innovation, and bustling cityscapes across our nation.

While Reynaldo's professional achievements were remarkable, it was his personal connections that truly defined him. A loving grandfather, he cherished moments spent fishing with his grandchildren, their laughter filling the air as they shared stories and created lasting memories by the water's edge. Family dinners were sacred gatherings during which laughter and love flowed freely – moments of celebration that held deep meaning to Reynaldo.

Beyond his family bonds, Reynaldo was an ardent supporter of the South Carolina Gamecocks and had an unwavering love for professional football. During his leisure time, he found solace in drawing intricate sketches and experimenting with photography. His keen eye captured cherished moments in stunning detail – each photograph was a reflection of his deep appreciation for the beauty surrounding him.

Reynaldo's passions extended beyond creative pursuits; he reveled in the thrill of deer hunting, dove and quail hunting excursions that allowed him to connect with nature. Additionally, he had a knack for raising canaries—a testament to his nurturing spirit. These hobbies provided balance to his life while adding richness to his experiences.

Reynaldo Ramos Baquiran was preceded in death by his dear parents, Armando Santos Baquiran and Constancia Ramos Baquiran, as well as a brother, Alfredo Baquiran. 

Reynaldo Ramos Baquiran is survived by his beloved wife of 54 years, Corazon Garcia Baquiran of Roebuck, SC. His memory will forever be cherished by his three sons: Luis Baquiran and his wife, Ellie, of Roebuck, SC; Alfred Joseph Baquiran of Irmo, SC; Mark Leslie Baquiran of Columbia, SC. His love and guidance will continue to guide their paths as they navigate life's journey.

Additionally, Reynaldo leaves behind two adored grandchildren, Owen Baquiran and Rachel Baquiran, blessings that brought joyful smiles to his face. Their laughter filled his heart with an immeasurable warmth that will forever live on in their fondest memories.

In grief, Reynaldo's sister, Maria Cristina Gelvezon and her husband, Roy of the Philippines share a profound sense of loss. His brother, Armando Baquiran, Jr. joins them in remembering a loved one who touched countless lives through the expression of his creative spirit.
