Lutgardo P. Tagle, M.D.


Dr. Tagle grew up in the Philippines during WWII. Times were hard and many family members sacrificed for him to complete his training. The Doctor didn’t forget the many kindnesses and later paid back by sponsoring other students and seminarians. He was a quiet, humble man who when he spoke was full of wisdom. His practice was in Brooklyn in a underprivileged neighborhood where he felt his skills would be needed. He came to New York to complete a residency at Lincoln Hospital. The Chief Resident was Sonia Mendoza, M.D. Friends put them together for a dinner dance and it led to a marriage of almost 48 years. When they retired they moved to Woolwich Twp. to be mid-way between grandchildren. Since they were both pediatricians children are a necessary part of their lifestyle, but playing games and fixing toy cars replaced the office. Of course it wasn’t just his grandkids that he so enjoyed, it was his entire family. He was blessed to have a home big enough to host everyone during the holidays.
In addition to his dear wife, Sonia, he is survived by three sons, Arnel, M.D., John and Warren, two brothers, five sisters and six grandchildren and was predeceased by two brothers and one sister.

    Dear Sonia & Family:

    We’re really saddened to hear the passing of your wonderful husband Ludy. He was such an unassuming, down to earth, humble, soft spoken gentleman. I’ve known him since his college days hanging out together including with his younger brothers in Laloma. He will be truly miss by everyone who knew him. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family in this time of loss and sadness.

    With our love and condolences,
    Ding, Mila & Family

    In your time of sadness our thoughts of heartfelt sympathy and prayers are with you.
    My husband Delio was Ludy’s high school classmate and belonged to Los Primos Club together with Popo in Rosario. We’ll hold on to those fond memories. He will be missed.

    I was saddened to read of the loss of your loved one. When we
    lose our loved one in death it is the most difficult
    time in our life. However, there is loving
    comfort in Psalms 55:22 to “throw your burden on God
    and he will sustain you..” Yes, no matter what you are facing
    God is there to help you get through it. May you continue to
    have the love and support from family and friends. I sincerely
    hope that this Bible message brings you
    a measure of comfort during this difficult time.
