Carmelo L. Alcon

Carmelo Laciste Alcon, 70, passed away on Wednesday, March 14, 2018 surrounded by his children, grandchildren, and family. A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, March 18 at 3:00 PM, with a visitation one hour prior to service at Callaway-Jones Funeral and Cremation Centers in Bryan.

Carmelo, also known as Melo, was born in Gabu, Norte Laoag City, Philippines on October 18, 1947. He was the sixth of seven siblings. Melo was a hard-working man and always had the desire to succeed. He studied at Ilocos Norte National High School and his drive to succeed allowed him to work his way through the Mapua Institute of Technology to graduate as a mechanical engineer. He held one of the top scores on the engineering board exam. During this time, Melo met and married his wife, Elnora (Alice) Bataoil and became the loving husband and father they all know.

Melo worked hard to give his family the best life possible. He became an appraiser with the Development Bank of the Philippines and ended his career as a Farm Manager at Sanctuario De La Natividad Farms. There he taught students different methods of farming and performed several experiments in hopes of finding different crops for the Philippines to produce.

Melo retired and decided to come to Texas in 2013 to enjoy his children and grandchildren. While in Texas, he became well known for his good nature and his always smiling face. He enjoyed taking his grandchildren to school every day and visiting his class/batch mates from high school scattered across the United States. He loved the ocean and being with his family. Carmelo Laciste Alcon will be missed by many.

Mr. Alcon is survived by his wife Elnora (Alice); children Robert, Carlo, Mike and Vanezza; four sisters Caridad Valdez, Natividad Respicio, Delfina Rabang and Maggie Alcon, and a brother Emerito Alcon.
