Joseph Magdaraog Memorial Fund

On Sunday, November 19, 2017, Joseph Magdaraog suffered a stroke at the age of 53 and passed away.  He was a member of our Sauganash Community, a father of three (Monica, Jose and Josh) and loving husband to Veronica (aka Niquee). 

His death came as a shock to many. For those who did not know Joseph, he was a kind, gentle soul who lived for his family. He often attended his kids school sporting events cheering them on with great affection. He was a genuine, kind person who was always willing to help others. Even in death, he was ready to help others as an organ donor. 

I've started this page in an effort to help the family pay for medical and funeral expenses, and hopefully start a college fund for his kids. Jose is a sophomore at Lane Tech High School and Josh is an 8th grader at Sauganash Elementary. 

The family is grateful for the support they've been getting during this very difficult time. Any amount that you are willing to donate, is greatly appreciated by the Magdaraog Family.

Rest in Peace Joseph.
