Artemio Saria Candalla, Sr.

October 20, 1928 — April 16, 2022

Artemio Saria Candalla, Sr. was born on October 20, 1928 in Alapan, Imus, Cavite, Philippines. He joined his Creator on April 16, 2022 after a lingering illness, at the Methodist Hospital of Sacramento. He was 93 years old.

Artemio was known to friends and acquaintances as “Temiong.” To the numerous people he had freely helped with their respective problems about either the law or law enforcement, he was known as “Sarhento” ---the Spanish and Tagalog word for “sergeant.”

Artemio was an aspiring lawyer. He was on his third year proper when he had to drop out due to increasing family demands. He joined the Imus Police Department, and within a short time, he rose to become a sergeant. He took the national Civil Service Commission exam for Chief of Police in 1964 and passed. The then mayor offered him the job, but he respectfully declined.

He instead applied with the Manila Police Academy to join the capital city’s police force. He passed and subsequently, was the topnotcher of his class in academics. He became a detective.

In 1970, the Manila Jaycees conferred on him their Citizen’s Award as an Outstanding Police Officer of the Manila Police Department. After more than twenty years of service, he retired from the force and followed his family to the United States.

Artemio was preceded in heaven by his wife---Jovita; son---Isagani; parents---Crisanto and Crispina; siblings---Buenaventura, Gloria and Demetria; and stepsiblings---Albina, Gregorio and Urbano.

He is survived by his children---Pat, Julie, Gerry, Leila, Alex, Cindy, Art Jr., and Ernand; his grandchildren---Barbara, Patrick, Dennis, Darwin, Dexter, Judy Ann, Logee, Anna May, Mark, Carl, Crystal, Andrea, Ysabel, Caleb, Joshua, Julia, Jillian, Jerica, Cameron, and Kyle; and his thirteen great grandchildren.
