Sergio San Jose Alejandrino

ALEJANDRINO, Sergio San Jose, M.D., died Thursday,
October 26, 2023.

Dr. Alejandrino was born in Plaridel, Bulacan, Philippines, April 21, 1928, to Pilar Germar Cruz San Jose and Primitivo Marcelino Alejandrino. Maternal Grandparents, Petronila Germar Cruz San Jose and Santiago San Jose. Paternal Grandparents, Emma Castro Alejandrino and Gervacio Marcelino Alejandrino.

He received his elementary education in Plaridel, Bulacan. He attended high school at Bulacan High School, Malolos, Bulacan. He graduated Pre-Med from the University Santo Thomas in Manila, Philippines, and received his Doctorate of Medicine from Manila Central University in 1953, followed by an internship at Manila Central University Hospital. In 1956, he came to the
United States for a U.S. internship at Aultman Hospital, Canton, Ohio. In 1957, he became the first medical resident at Good Samaritan Hospital in Dayton, Ohio. He completed his post-graduate training in Internal Medicine at Good Samaritan Hospital, where he was the first Chief Medical Resident.

In 1960, he returned to the Philippines to open his practice in his homeland. The same year, he married Daytonian Lynn Kelly on October 1, in Manila, Philippines, at the Malate Catholic Church. She survives him today after 63 years of marriage. Their first child, Rachel Alejandrino Bon, was born in the Philippines with severe congenital heart disease, and the family returned to the United States. She was treated here and predeceased him in 2011 at the age of 50. To help his daughter, he finished his Fellowship in Cardiology, the first class of Fellows under Benjamin Schuster, M.D.

In 1965, he opened his private practice and was the first Asian to do so in Montgomery County. Sergio was a physician for the Dayton Public Schools for five years. He successfully practiced medicine in Dayton for 40 years, the first 20 years in the Fidelity Medical Building and the second 20 years in the 111 Building, both in downtown Dayton. He was associated with Good
Samaritan Hospital, St. Elizabeth Hospital, Miami Valley Hospital, Kettering Memorial Hospital and Dayton Heart Hospital. He was a member of the Montgomery County Medical Society, the Ohio State Medical Association, the American Heart Association, and the American College of Cardiology.

He is survived by his wife Lynn, loving children and their families: Rebecca Alejandrino; Suzanne and her husband Thomas Homan and their children William and Lindsay; Sergio II and his wife Stephanie and their children Shelby and Seth; Sarah and Travis Mouse and their children Joshua, Abigail and Grant. He is also survived by his brother and sister-in-law Noel
and Remedios Alejandrino of California. Sisters in the Philippines include Emerenciana Alejandrino, Dr. Consuelo Laureles, Luz Abucot, and Celia Buenviaje. He was preceded in death by brothers Romulo Alejandrino and Magno Alejandrino and sisters Lutgarda Galvez, Alicia De Jesus, and Fe Alejandrino.

He was a long-time, faithful member of the Church of the Incarnation, a long-time member of the Dayton Country Club, Dayton Dance Group, and many professional organizations.

He was a brilliant physician, reserved, humble, humorous, and caring, who served his patients faithfully. He loved his family, French food, dancing, swimming, horse racing, and good friends. We will miss him greatly.
