Leoncio Lachica Quiming

October 25, 1928 — April 7, 2010

Leoncio (Leo) Quiming, 84, died Wednesday, April 7, 2010, in North Charleston, SC.  He was born Oct. 25, 1925, in Damortis, La Union, Philippines. He received his B.S. in Civil Engineering from Mapua Institute of Technology, Manila.  He was a Major in the Philippine Army and worked as an Ordnance Expert in WWII, eventually working with the U.S. Armed Forces in Vietnam. After the fall of South Vietnam, he stayed briefly in the Philippines, worked as a contract worker in Iran, and came to the United States in 1975.  He moved to Charleston in 1991. Mr. Quiming is survived by his son, Leoncio M. Quiming, Jr., who lives in the Philippines. Leo was a man with a big heart.  He was an integral part of the Tricounty Family Ministries for almost six years.  His strong work ethic and mission to provide food to thousands of people will be sorely missed. Leo was always on time and spent hours stocking and bagging groceries.  He was always concerned that there might not be the right mix of canned goods to feed hungry families.  His age, diminutive size and love of sharing stories didn't deter him from completing his job.  We thank you, Leo, for a job well done. A memorial service will be held at St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church,  6650 Dorchester Road, Friday, May 14, at 10:00 a.m.  Memorials may be sent to:  Tricounty Family Ministries - Leo's Pantry, 3349 Rivers Avenue, North Charleston, S.C. (tricountyfamilyministries.org).
