Sir Ricardo Maclang, Jr. – one of the La Consolacion University Philippines’ (LCUP) beloved Senior High School Faculty members and Subject Area Coordinator, rested in peace, December 4, 2020 at the age of 40.

Having fulfilled 15 years of service, the University was deeply saddened over the said news. Sir Maclang or fondly called “Sir Ric” by his LCUP family passed away due to Cadiogenic Shock Secondary to Intractable Metabolic Acidosis.

Being known for his dedication in teaching and love for his students, Sir Ric left memories remarkable to his co-teachers in the Basic Education Department (BED) and friends from the similar industry.

One of his co-teacher from BED Faculty, Mr. Rex Dionisio – whom he started working with since 2005 in the institution which was University of Regina Carmeli (URC) then, considers Sir Ric as his “best friend” and also played a brother-figure to him.

Sir Dionisio expressed how he look up to one of his few truest colleagues.

“We have lots of things in common, specifically in work and life principles… ang daming bagay ang natutunan ko rin sa kanya lalo na pagdating sa trabaho. Isa s’ya sa mahuhusay na empleyado ng LCUP, eversince. A very transparent co-worker and is known by his students for his father figure-like image, who’s full of wisdom and with lots of life lessons to share. That’s Ricardo Maclang Jr.” he said.

Aside from his excellence as a professional teacher, Sir Ric was also known with his joyful personality. Another one of his closest co-teachers Ms. Diana Carlyn Felix shared her stories of kulitan with Sir Ric.

“Madalas ko siyang lokohin, mahillig kaming magbiruan. Paborito kong hawakan ang bumbunan ni Sir Maclang at ako lang [ang] gumagawa no’n sa kanya. Nakaka-miss ang mga kwentuhan namin na kasama si Sir Maclang. Masayang kasama si Sir Ric.”

The LCUP Community expressed their love and prayers to Sir Ric upon receiving the news. Photos of him showing his bonds with his LCUP family were posted on Facebook. Sir Dionisio, as one of the people close to Sir Ric who wished for his recovery, came to a realization.

“...when I saw how many people love him during his funeral days, I told myself that there’s already more than enough lives whom, in one way or another, he has touched – which clearly proved, he’s already served his purpose.” Sir Dionisio stated.

Sir Ric was interred on December 9, 2020 at the Caniogan Public Cemetery.
