Angelo A. Deogracias

Feb. 1, 1962 - Dec. 21, 2013

INDIANAPOLIS — Angelo A. Deogracias passed away on Dec. 21, 2013, at Community North Hospital after battling lung cancer. Angelo was born to the late Dr. Francisco and Alicia Deogracias.

Angelo is survived by his wife, Tracy Ball Deogracias. His surviving siblings are Dr. Frank Deogracias (Karen) of Indiana, Eva Depa (Paul) of Colorado, Cecilia Lok (Dr. John) of California, Carmelo Deogracias (Shari) of Indiana, and John Deogracias (Lynnette) of Arizona.

In-laws include the late David B. Ball (father), Hester C. Ball (mother), Dr. Mark Ball, Lori Ball (Dr. Lisa Hicks) and Mitch Ball (Valerie Resto). He was godfather to Alicia Deogracias, Christopher Depa, and Andrew and Michael Deogracias. Other survivors include nieces, nephews, cousins, lifelong friend David Records and many more very special friends.

The Deogracias family immigrated to Cincinnati, Ohio, from Quezon City, Philippines in April 1963. They soon moved to Edinburgh, Ind., where Angelo attended elementary school in Columbus, Ind.

He enjoyed tennis, bicycling, model building, remote controlled airplanes, University of Michigan football and learning about history. When living in California, he polished his tennis skills and achieved national status with doubles partner and good friend Jim Brownell. Bicycling accomplishments included completing the Hilly 100 and many Tour de Cure rides, as well as other charity events. He was an active member of the California and Indiana chapters of the International Plastic Modelers Society where he was a recognized national judge. He also taught Crown Ministries (financial planning) and regularly attended Northview Church of Carmel, Indiana.

Family and friends would describe Angelo as a man of God, a kind, gentle soul, thoughtful, well-read, loving, forgiving, sensitive, unselfish, caring and the diplomat of the family. He is remembered by many as: “having a generous spirit,” “the embodiment of all the good people in his family,” “a good sport,” “one who exhibited admirable strength,” “one who loved life,” “a beautiful soul,” “gracious to the very end,” “intense and determined about everything,” “a loyal friend,” and “a loving husband.”
