Obituary for Mapalad Reyes

Our beloved father, grandfather, and friend Mapalad (Pal) Reyes of Warren, Michigan passed away at his home on September 21, 2021 at the age of 94. Pal was born in Olongapo, Philippines and moved to Detroit in 1973. He later retired from Saf-TI Auto Glass in Troy.

As a young man and into his adulthood, Pal dearly loved hunting, fishing, and playing in the great outdoors. From his early days at Vicks (Vaporub) in Manila with his wife Lily, Pal grew to be an avid and skilled bowler winning many trophies even as he turned 92. He enjoyed cheering on the Detroit Tigers and frequently played mahjong with friends and family on weekends. A colorful storyteller, a great gardener, and terrific Filipino style cook, Pal truly lived a fun filled life to the very end.

Pal is survived by his daughters Lourdes (Dean) Brossy and Cecilia (Michael) Ball, son Jose (Richard Heide) Reyes, and grandson David Lore. Pal was preceded in death by his wife Lilia and daughter Irmina.

Visitation will be held on Monday, September 27, 10am at Lynch & Sons Funeral Home, 1368 North Crooks Road in Clawson immediately followed by a Memorial Service at 11am. A reception will be held at 12 noon at Shield's Restaurant, 1476 West Maple Road in Troy. Pal will be buried in White Chapel Cemetery on Tuesday, at 10am.

Memorials appreciated to Alzheimer's Association.
