He was born in Manila, Philippines, the son of Roberto and Anunciacion (Sitchon) Guillen. In 1970, he immigrated to the US and has lived in Philadelphia, Bensalem, and Yardley. He received his education in both countries and worked as a case worker for the state of Pennsylvania.
He was a dedicated and devoted family man and caring friend. Passionate about life, he enjoyed seeing the world having visited 43 countries. A true “foodie”, he loved to sample various cuisines. He was also an avid Philadelphia sports fan, always hoping for the best and never giving up on his teams. In truth, this was the approach he took on everything he did.
Ernesto was the beloved husband for 48 years of Meyanda (de Anas) Guillen and the loving father of Katherine Guillen. He will be sadly missed by his brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
Relatives and friends will be received by the family Sunday, November 2, 3-5pm at the Hoffmann Funeral Home, 1770 Brown Ave, Bensalem and Monday, November 3, 9-10:30am at St John the Evangelist Church, 752 Big Oak Rd, Morrisville. His Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10:30am. In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory can be made to the National Kidney Foundation, 30 East 33rdSt, New York, NY 10016.
