Juan "Johnny" O. Lumidao

May 27, 1935 — June 16, 2023

In Loving Memory of Juan O. Lumidao

 

Juan “Johnny” O. Lumidao, beloved husband, father, and grandfather, passed away during the

early hours of June 16, 2023 at the age of 88. His departure has left a void in the hearts of his

family and friends, but his spirit will forever live on in the cherished memories he leaves behind.

 

Juan was born on May 27, 1935 in Guiguinto, Bulacan, Philippines surrounded by the close-knit

community of his parents and siblings. Juan developed a strong work ethic in his youth which

laid the foundation for his adult life.

 

After graduating from the Mapua Institute of Technology in the 1960s, Juan landed several

construction projects involving cement plants, nickel mines, gas and oil, textile, and sugar

refineries. Working on a project with Bechtel and Fluor: Global Engineering and Construction

Co., he was able to emigrate to the United States from the Philippines. Juan’s first job in the

U.S. was with the Alaskan Pipeline Project, overseeing oil and gas in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska.

 

To escape the frigid weather, Juan moved to Washington, D.C. where he joined the Washington

Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA). He later joined Pepco as a Project Estimator

Engineer at its electric and gas generating station overseeing two major plants and monitoring

project construction costs.

 

Beyond his professional achievements, Juan was a devoted husband and father. He married

Grace Litorja in 1966 and was married to her for 57 years until his passing. Together, they had

three children: Lorinda (Lynn), Eloisa, and John. The family lived in Clinton, Maryland and

settled in Owings, building a life filled with love, strength, and unwavering support for one

another.

 

Juan’s love extended to his grandchildren, Elizabeth, Sarah, and Jonathan. He loved spending

time with them -- sharing stories, telling jokes and providing a pillar of strength, constantly

telling them how proud he was of their achievements.

 

Outside of his professional and family life, Juan had a deep appreciation for nature and enjoyed

spending time gardening, tending to his vegetables. He had a passion for fishing and throughout

his retirement years, spent most weekends at Point Lookout, Solomon Island and Chincoteague

Island with his fishing buddies, Isidro Alvarez [deceased] and Ben Ingalla [deceased], alongside

his son, John and his wife, Grace.

 

Juan will be remembered for his silent strength, his kindness, and his gentle spirit. He leaves

behind a legacy of hard work and dedication that will inspire generations to come. His warm

smile and loving presence will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him.

 

Juan is survived by his wife, Grace Litorja Lumidao; daughter Lorinda (Lynn) Watson and her

husband George (Albie) Watson; granddaughters Elizabeth and Sarah Phan; daughter Eloisa

Thring and her husband Daniel (Danny) Thring [deceased]; grandson Jonathan Thring; son

John Lumidao and his wife Karen Lumidao; sister Connie Mendoza; and niece Melanie Isoga.

He will also be remembered by the many relatives and friends whose lives he touched.
