Enrico Torres Santos

Enrico Torres Santos, 56 years of age, passed away peacefully in his sleep of natural causes on Sunday, April 19, 2020, in his home in Leesburg, Virginia, on Divine Mercy Sunday. Enrico was born October 1, 1963, in Manila, Philippines, to Pablo and Alice Santos. He was the second of five children, and is survived by his mother; sister, Karina (Chris); and three brothers, Albert, Hernon, and Elmo. He was predeceased by his father and sister-in-law, Judy. He spent most of his childhood on Guam where he attended Father Duenas Memorial High School. In 1981, Enrico came to the mainland to study at the University of Notre Dame where he studied accounting. He later earned his MBA in finance at Georgia State. Enrico became an American citizen in 1989. He proudly served in the Army Reserves for three years. Extremely patriotic, he was proud to be an American. Enrico met Margaret Bernardi in 1987 while working at Deloitte and Touche. They married in 1994, and together they had six children. He is predeceased by his daughter, Gianna; and survived by his wife Margaret, his four daughters, Francesca, Luisa, Gabriela, and Rosa; and his son, Joseph. Enrico loved his family very much and was very proud of his children’s accomplishments. He is especially well known for sharing about their sports — his face lit up when he talked about his family. He was a lov-ing and devoted father. Enrico was CFO of the Army Distaff Foundation where he enjoyed working for the past 15 years. His staff remembers him as a man steeped in integrity and honor. Enrico loved God and was a faithful Catholic. He lived by the motto God, Family, Country. He always wanted to sit in the front row at church. He loved debates and talking politics, especially at the dinner table. He was a huge history buff and carried a pocket Constitution wherever he went. He never missed any of his children’s sporting events and was especially close with his son Joseph. They enjoyed playing Risk and throwing the football together. Friends and neighbors recount what a friendly, peaceful man he was with a kind smile and kind words. He is greatly missed by his family who will always feel the loss of such a wonderful husband and father. A funeral service took place Friday, April 24, 2020, at St. John the Apostle Catholic Church in Leesburg, Virginia, at 12:00 p.m. Enrico will be buried near his daughter Gianna. A Memorial Service/Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
