Obituary for Ferdinand G. "Ferdie" DeGuzman

Ferdinand G. "Ferdie" DeGuzman, 59, a 24 year resident of Naperville, IL, formerly of Chicago, IL, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, February 11, 2020 at Edward Hospital in Naperville. He was born August 29, 1960 in Bocaue, Bulacan, Philippines.

Beloved husband of Amelita "Amy" DeGuzman (nee Lopez), loving father of Kathleen DeGuzman of Downers Grove, IL and Reinier (fiancee, Caitlin Frech) DeGuzman of Chicago, devoted son of the late Conrado and Loreta DeGuzman, dear brother of nine siblings, adored uncle, great-uncle, nephew, cousin and friend of many.

Ferdie graduated from The University of the East, located in the Philippines, before moving to the United States with his wife, Amy, in November of 1988. It was not long after he began working at American Airlines, and had since been joyfully employed for over 30 years. Ferdie had a passion for music, and would attend concerts regularly whether indoor or outdoor, day or night. He enjoyed traveling the world, whether Mexico, Canada, Asia, or Europe. However, nothing brought him more joy than spending time with his family and friends. Ferdie would often plan reunions as a means to cherish his time with those who meant most to him. He will be remembered by the way he shared his love – through his time and his actions.
