Fr. Constantino Sarmiento Nieva, was born in Boac, Marinduque on November 9,1929. He soared to the great heights of his aspirations, conquered the world through his critically-acclaimed books, including the THE TRANSCENDING GOD, THE TEACHING OF THE AUTHOR OF THE CLOUD OF UNKNOWING, and with the wings of compassion and understanding, spread God's love and his word among his flock in the US.

He was a cannon law expert, a classical pianist, a lawyer from the University of the Philippines, a published author, a humanist, a good son, a generous brother, a great uncle, a wonderful great grand uncle, and a complete renaissance man, who lived the embodiment of an Asian Leader.

Hello all, cousins, friends and relatives: Dave and I are saddened by Tito Tino death. But death is a reality of life and we are accepting it with pride and realism. Tito Tino had led a good life and was instrumental in our marriage. We have enjoyed numerous visits with Tito Tino, when he was still residing in the East Coast, New York and Long Island specifically. Those memories with him will never be forgotten as long as we lived.
I immedaitely called Pepot, who is here in Mountain View, CA awaiting for the birth of her first grandchild. I also informed Ms Thelma Santos, Dr Rudy Jao and Ms Norma Mercader. We extend our thanks to all our relatives specaially Bing Carrion Buck, who personally took care of him after his retirement. To represent us in the fumeral services in Boac, is my sister-in-law, Ms Siony Jambalos.
