Angelo Santos Chupungco, known as “Mikey” amongst his closest family, died on Sunday, November 20, 2022 at home in Pleasantville, NY. He was born on April 20, 1975 in Pasig, Manila, Philippines to Aida Chupungco who preceded him in death (2011). He is survived by his wife Susan Chupungco and his children Ruby, Chloe, and Grayson, his brother Robert (Jaymee) Chupungco, and sisters Grace (Michael) Scutro and Maria (Tom Potoeski) Chupungco. Angelo graduated from Hofstra University and was a life-long public servant. He was the owner and operator of Public Safety Training Institute, LLC and a member of the Essex County Sheriff’s Department.
His commitment to serving others began long before his professional career. As the oldest of four children, he was a devoted big-brother, being the “strength” for his younger siblings and respected grandmother (Nanay), particularly after his mother’s passing. He was an entrepreneur, liked fishing, cooking (especially large pieces of meat), and cigars & whiskey. Be it a good meal at home with family, drinks with friends around the fire-pit, or playing poker at the cigar lounge, Angelo always chose to find joy in the small things in life. Though he will be missed, his friends and family will always cherish and remember his spirit and bright smile that lit up our lives.
Everyone is invited to the Beecher Flooks Funeral Home on December 1 from 4-7PM. A memorial service will begin at 6:30PM followed by a meal across the parking lot at the Pleasantville Presbyterian Church. A mass of the Christian Burial will be celebrated on December 2 at 10AM at Holy Innocents Church. An internment will follow at Nassau Knolls Cemetery.
