When Fernando (Nando) Roque was born in 1921, the world was reeling from the Spanish Flu pandemic. He was spared from the pandemic then and from the pandemic now, exactly 100 years later. He went on to join the military and was the lone survivor of his battalion – all of whom fell victim to WWII. He is celebrating another blessing from God as he turns 100 years old on April 1st, 2021.
