After graduating from Globe High School, he relocated to the Phoenix area where he met Amy. They were married in July of 2005, started their family in 2010 and over the next six years had three boys. Songgi completed a BS degree from the University of Phoenix and has worked in the health care industry as a business analyst for the past 15 years. Songgi has always gone above and beyond to be a devoted husband, loving father and a true family inspiration to all he met. Songgi’s personal touch will be remembered and felt for generations. As an avid supporter of Your Neighborhood Youth Soccer League, you could count on him to be running the sidelines, encouraging and working with all of the teams. Songgi was passionate about fitness, specifically weight lifting and personal well being. He was always inspiring others to be stronger, healthier and more resilient. Be positive! Songgi was also a faithful supporter of many local businesses in the North 32nd Street Neighborhood. He was the smiling face, the helping hand and the one interested in what others could accomplish. He will be missed!
