Samuel Jose Mariano, 94 of Lahaina, Maui peacefully passed away on Saturday, September 12, 2020 in his home surrounded by loved ones. He was born in the Philippines on April 28, 1926 to the late Marcial Gregorio Mariano and Cirela Jose Mariano of Piddig, Ilocos Norte.

He is survived by his loving wife, Arsenia Corpuz Mariano; beloved children: Melen (Manuel) Onate, Mila (Manny) Bumanglag, Delfin (Felma) Mariano, Lourdes (Robert) Cabrera, and predeceased by 3 children, Antolin, Lety and Delia Mariano. He is also survived by his sisters, Leonida Corpuz (Philippines) and Laura Lalica (Oahu), and by his brother Bernardo Mariano (Maui); and predeceased by 5 siblings: Fortunato Mariano, Rosita Ventura, Vicente Mariano, Ben Mariano, and Domingo Mariano.

He has been blessed with 14 wonderful grandchildren and 13 beautiful great grandchildren, several step grandchildren and step great grandchildren, nieces and nephews and their families, and all the extended families, including those who are on the mainland, in the Philippines and in other countries.

It was by the grace of God and with the love and support of his sister, Laura Lalica, together with his late brother-in-law, Mariano Lalica, that Samuel Jose Mariano along with his 2 brothers emigrated to Hawaii in 1978. While in Oahu, his good friend, late Fermin Domingo, and family, invited him to come to Maui to work, where he eventually settled with his family. His coming to the State of Hawaii paved the way for the rest of his family to join him where their family has grown.

He was a hard-working husband and father who provided for his family and had worked at the Sheraton Maui from 1981 until he retired and was active in the Local 5 Union during his employment years. After retirement, he worked part time at the Maui Sands for several years.

He was a former barrio captain of Palagao – Batug, Gattaran, Cagayan for many years and his dedication and sacrifices were vital for the betterment of the community as a whole.

He was a God-fearing man, always praising the Lord Jesus and reminding everyone that God is good all the time. He has been a faithful elder and member of the International Christian Fellowship Church in Lahaina. Being a musician himself when he was in his early age playing flute and mandolin, he loved watching and listening to his grandchildren play musical instruments and sing Christian songs.

He and his loving wife had touched so many lives. God had made him a great man that is leaving a profound and deep-rooted legacy to his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. His memories and recollections will live on forever. #themarianostrong
