Felipe B. Aromin is the eldest son of Engr. Basilio B.. Aromin and Elsie Ballesteros Aromin. The family lived in Bangkok from 1964 to 1981, the father worked for the United Nations in the Economic Social Commission of Asia and the Pacific. All the children went to ISB.

Felipe attended University of the Philippines in Baguio City, until joining the Ananda Marga in Bangkok and India, where he was a member for 10 years. He left the group, saying it was getting too political, and went back to the Philippines. Felipe led a colorful and peaceful life, choosing to live in the province, near the beach, away from what he called “society.” We cherish his sense of humor, love for all sentient beings, and carefree attitude. Om Shanti, as he says. He is survived by his two daughters, Manna Preciosa and Maja Grace, and his sisters Arlene, Patricia, Caroline, Divina, and brother, Basilio (Raja). Their sister, Jocelyn (Class of 71) passed on in 1995.

THANK YOU, David for all that you do for ISBeings.

My brother, Felipe “Philip” Aromin passed away this morning. Gone so suddenly and so soon. He will be missed. Philip was ISB class ‘70.
