Ulpiano Santo

Closing in the 100 year club

Ulpiano grew up in the Philippines, a territory of the US during his youth.  He joined the US Navy in 1920 (where he would eventually become a chief steward), and immigrated to the US in 1930.  He met and married his wife, Pequita, 60 years ago in Puerto Rico, and they are still married-with Pequita attending the US Open with him.  He retired to Chesapeake, Virginia in 1956 after 27 years in the Navy-43 years ago!
