O'Guin
ESTHER K. O'GUIN
July 25, 1948 - April 9, 2019
Esther K. O'Guin joined her savior in Heaven on April 9, 2019.
She was born July 25, 1948 in Cebu City, Republic of the Philippines and at age 18 joined the U.S. Civil Service at Mactan Air Base. There she worked as Secretary to the Director of OPS, 463rd Tactical Airlift Wing before relocating to Clark Air Base. When the entire unit (herself included) moved to Clark Air Base; she began work with Clark Personnel where she interviewed and examined candidates for the base civilian work force.
Extremely active and self-starting, she became one of the pioneer members and officers of the burgeoning Catholic Young Adults program and then led tour groups to sites throughout the islands. Her developed proficiency and English language abilities led to her appointment as Secretary to the Base Director of Personnel.
She then met and married Major Jerry O'Guin and later left with him to his assignment at the USAF Academy. While in Colorado Springs, Colorado she had various assignments to U.S. Space Command, NORAD and Northcom. After completing 35 years of federal civil service, she retired in 2011.
A self-actualizer, she aimed for and achieved perfection in whatever domain she sought out. All who met and knew her loved her. She will be profoundly missed.
