Dante Rakin

The league was saddened to hear of Dante Rakin's passing this past week. You couldn't miss Dante's smile when meeting him. A masterful player who played on numerous teams, Dante recently played on the Master's Cup championship team with his daughter Mary out of Grandma's Saloon.

Dante played on some really strong Fizzee's teams in the early 2000's. Dante took special pride in the success of his children on the pool table, and was a pleasure to shoot pool against. Dante, your presence and smile will be missed. On behalf of the players in this league, our condolences go out to the Rakin family.

Celebration of Dante Rakin's Life

From coming here from the Philippines at a young age to successfully raising five children into mature adults, Redante Estores Rakin Sr has fulfilled his life as a great father and a great man.

To those who had gotten the chance to know him, the Rakin family would love to invite all of you not to mourn but to celebrate the life of a man who has touched so many peoples' hearts.

We all hope you can make it. I know my father wanted to leave this Earth with a bang so let's give it to him!
