We are deeply saddened and grieving for the loss of one of our own. Uncle Bob Santos was an icon to Filipino Americans and a hero to people seeking social justice. The Greater Seattle Chapter of the Filipino American National Historical Society extends its deepest sympathies to his family and our extended community. We are with you during this time in heart and soul. Robert Santos has been a history maker in Civil Rights, Filipino America, and champion for multiple communities – especially Seattle’s International District. FANHS will continue to memorialize Uncle Bob’s history and his many achievements.
In October 2015 Uncle Bob received the Julita & Silvestre Tangalan FANHS LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD from FANHS National.
