am reposting here these brilliant words from gerry arnedo (b83) for sano bawozo...

I used to call him the “Great Pang-Bawi” The only somber and sane voice among the boisterous, rowdy crowd that the Class of ’83 was in its heyday. As a class, we could be considered crass and arrogant and too confident in our wise-ass ways. Except that it would not be fair, because we had Fr. Jimmy in our group, and he was the antithesis of all that.

To say that he was well-grounded and humble is a gross understatement. Fr. Imbo had this wise-beyond-his-years sense of self. He knew he was more than intelligent, and yet saw no sense in calling the world’s attention to it. He was an Oak among Cherry Blossoms, unspectacular in the display of his hues but definitely the steadiest of the lot. You could say he died as he lived, choosing the most quiet of ways, leaving in his sleep, leaving while all of us were asleep. He would have it no other way

From 2010 Dodge City Daily Globe Original article here..

Father Jimmy Barrozo, 44, died Thursday, Oct. 29, 2010, at the Catholic rectory in Meade.

He was the parochial administrator of St. John the Baptist, Meade; St. Anthony, Fowler; and St. Patrick, Plains.

Father Barrozo was born July 12, 1966, in Marikina , Metro Manila, Philippines, to Juanito Salazar and Celerina Antiado Barrozo. He was ordained to the priesthood Dec. 4, 1993, by the Most Rev. Jesus Y. Varela, bishop of Sorsogon, at Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral in Sorsogon City.

Father Barrozo was a priest from the Diocese of Sorsogon in the Philippines. He began his assignment in the Diocese of Dodge City on Dec. 4, 2009. This was his only assignment in the United States.

He served as associate pastor at Immaculate Conception, Sorsogon, (1993-1994) and Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral, (1994-1997). From 1997 to 2000, Father Barrozo served at Lady of Penafrancia Seminary at Sorsogon as spiritual director, academic formator and dean of students. His pastorates were at St. Raymond Nonnatus (2001-2005) and St. Michael the Archangel (2005-2009), both in Sorsogon.

Father Barrozo served his diocese in the Philippines as diocesan Internet program director; secretariat diocesan synod head; episcopal vicar; and as a member of the Board of Consultors and Presbyterial Council.

Survivors include his mother and five siblings.

He was preceded in death by his father.

The vigil service will be at 7 p.m. Tuesday at St. John the Baptist Church, Meade, with Msgr. Angel Dy presiding. The funeral Mass will be at 10 a.m. Wednesday at St. Anthony Church, Fowler, with Bishop Ronald M. Gilmore presiding.

Batch 83's Reunion

 here's a post from batch 83 about their latest reunion. featuring the recently found fr. imbo... more pix and funny kwentos at their blog!!!

A Tale of Two Reunions-Part 1-Finding the Lost Shepherd

You have all heard of the parable of the lost sheep, right? How about the lost shepherd? Its not in the Bible, but in the lores of the class of '83. The class " pambawi" ( sa mga kabuangan natun) Fr. Imbo Barrozo surfaced and happily we had an excuse to have the first of the get-togethers last August 13 at the Eastwood City. Fr. Imbo is about to leave for a three year assignment with Sorsogon's "sister" diocese Kansas. Aside from Jayhawks, Kansas is known for their excellent beef - basi lamang yadto si Baka-King, Cula, matuparan man ni Fr. Imbo.

Captured and not about to let go! Gerrox shows Fr. Imbo how much he has been missed by the class of '83

Cacoy spent X-mas holidays with his parents in CA and visited family, friends and ex-classmates in Florida and Texas. We met for a few hours, had lunch; he came by the house, even visited my son at his school. It was nice to have been able to catch up with Cacoy and reminisce. We laughed a plenty remembering the times and experiences from OLPS. It was late in the day when we parted ways, after dinner matter of fact.
