Our Views

Sergio Quiano was the 77-year-old Oak Parker murdered in his downtown area apartment a month back. No arrest has been made in the death of this Filipino immigrant, a victim, in medical examiner jargon, of "multiple sharp force injuries." 

Might have been the last we wrote about Mr. Quiano, pending an arrest that may or may not come to pass. But it is not the final word. Because of his life of intentional effort at connection with others, even if in passing, we've now heard from people who met this man, watched him strolling downtown Oak Park streets, frequenting Prairie Bread and Panera, and who appreciated his kind ways. Two weeks ago we ran an essay by Matt Baron, today a letter from Bill Higgins.

And in our news section today is a brief story about the shared effort of an Oak Park couple and the pastor at St. Edmund to assure that Mr. Quiano will have a funeral Mass to celebrate his life and a suitable burial. 

The funeral mass will be March 3 at 11 a.m. at St. Edmund, 188 S. Oak Park Ave.

This is what being an Oak Parker, even at the margins, is about. Remembered. Respected. Honored.
