Mauro F. Llarenas, Jr. or Junior to most, a beloved Husband, Father, Brother and friend passed away on April 19, 2024 in Renton, Washington. Mauro was born to Mauro Tejano Llarenas and Marcelina Flores Llarenas on October 20, 1952 in Bauang, La Union Philippines.

Mauro’s early years were shared with his siblings: Rolando, Luisa, Florina, Estrella, Jovencio, Milagros, Angelito, Marina, Mildred, Eduardo and Helen creating a tapestry of memories filled with laughter and camaraderie. As Mauro moved into his adult life, much of the immediate family moved to the United States, settling down in the Seattle Region and southern California. 

On October 20, 1979, Mauro married his sweetheart, Joji Rodrigo, in a ceremony that remains a cherished memory for all who attended. Together, they built a life filled with love, laughter, and the joyous hustle and bustle of raising their two children: Maurice John and Marjilyn. 

An avid gardener, Mauro found solace in the serenity of his garden planting annuals, seasonals, shrubs/bushes and fruit trees. He took great care in making everything look perfect and manicured never allowing an overgrown bush or browning flowers/roses. He would start in the garden in the early morning and not come back into the home until the evening hours. His hobbies included visiting the Home Depot, watching HGTV or Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy.

Predeceased by his parents and his brother Angelito, Mauro’s memory is honored and kept alive by his loving wife Joji, his children and his siblings. 

A service to celebrate Mauro’s life will be held on April 29, 2024 at 10:30am at Bonney Watson at Washington Memorial Cemetery, 16445 International Blvd Seatac, WA 98188. Following the service, Mauro will be laid to rest at Washington Memorial Cemetery with a reception to follow. 

Rolando Llarenas, Jovencio Llarenas, Eduardo Llarenas, Ronald Llarenas, Joseph Manalo and Albert Borja will serve as pallbearers, escorting Mauro on his final journey. Mauro F. Llarenas, Jr’s story is one of hard work, love and an unwavering commitment to his family and friends. He will be deeply missed, but the seeds he planted in the hearts of those who knew him will continue to grow and flourish for generations to come.
