Ray Duque 3

Saturday, July 15, 2006


My name is RAY DUQUE III. I was born on October 16 in the Philippines in the province of Pangasinan, the hometown of my father and the largest DUQUE FAMILY. I'm now 60 plus years young. We migrated at Sampaloc, Manila when I was about two years old. We used to lived in Manila for about a little more than ten years and transferred to Quezon City. This is a part of Metro Manila. We used to live in Quezon City until I migrated to New York City in July 1970.

While I was in Manila and Quezon City growing up in the elementary, I went to a public school and at San Beda College in Mendiola, Manila. When I was in high school, I went to University of Santo Tomas, National University and Arellano University all in Manila. In my college, I went to University of the East in Recto Avenue, Manila. I took up Business Administration in Accounting. When I finished my Acoounting, I migrated to New York City to work and live there until my retirement.

When I was in school in Manila, I used to appear in the Philippine Movies as a Bit Player Actor in the 1960s. I used to appear in many movies as a bit player actor. At the same time those years I learned to Dance the Ballroom/Latin Dancing. I also played Basketball in School Intramurals and tried out for the basketball varsity team but I was not able to play in the varsity.

When I came to New York City in 1970, I worked with different companies as a sales representatives, bookkeeper and accountant. I got married in March 1974 in New York City. We have two grown up children. They are both working. We went to Los Angeles, California to live and work there for less than three years and came back to New York City.

I'm now a retired Filipino-American living in New York City and enjoying my retirement. I want to be known. I want to go back to the Philippine movies if I have the opportunity to go back in the movies. I go to the Philippines almost every year for vacation and to visit.

Thank you all,
Ray Duque III (GMBD), USA

Jeri Duque here. Son of Eterio Duque from the Olimpio and Maria family. My late father used to mention a lot about a certain Ray Duque. Not sure if you are the one.
Other siblings of Olimpio and Maria are Crispulo, Ramon, Merced, Januaria, Iluminada.
I believe, my great grandparents also came from ilocos and pangasinan.

I am a duque. My uncles and dad are all duques sons of Mariano duque. Im not sure if we are of the same duques because we were brought up here in hawaii.. My grandpa came to hawaii to work in the cane fields and met my grandmother a hawaiian woman who then lived and raised their children here. My uncles do know the names of my dads brothers but i don't.

venus here ..my late grandfather CANUTO RUBIO DUQUE was from Ilocos too.He migrated his family here in Aritao, Nueva Vizcaya where he used to be the town's Chief of Police. a relative of him , the late Judge Vicente Duque of Bayombong used to visit my granpop in the early years cathcing up with each other. He always said that the Duque clan hails from Ilocos. I believed that we all came from one tree that branches out in many parts of the world.
