Obituary for Victorino Dumaboc Chin

Victorino Dumaboc Chin, M.D., 81, of Saluda, SC died on June 5, in his home.

He was born in Guihulngan, Philippines on November 2, 1937, a son of the late Eustaquio Chin and Leona Dumaboc Chin.

Dr. Chin, a devout Catholic, was a member of Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church in Chapin, SC and St. Mark’s in Newberry, SC; and had been members of The Cathedral of St. Joseph in Wheeling W.V, and St. Joseph’s parish in Canlaon, Philippines; St. Jude in Glen Dale, W.V., and All Saints in Bridgeport, WV.

Like his mother, Dr. Chin was devoted to Mary, Mother of God, and he and his wife prayed the Rosary daily. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus (4th Degree). He was especially proud of his nephew, Most Rev. Patrick Daniel Y. Parcon, D.D, for being installed as a Catholic Bishop at the Diocese of Talibon, Philippines.

He received his Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Santo Tomas, Philippines in 1965 and conducted his surgical residency training in Youngstown, OH, Wheeling WV, and Morgantown, WV. He began his medical practice specializing in General Practice and General Surgery in Bridgeport WV in 1974 and retired in Moundsville, WV in 2010. During his career, he also served in many leadership roles such as Chief of the Medical Staff at United Hospital Center, Clarksburg, WV, and Reynolds Memorial Hospital, Moundsville, WV.
Dr. Chin actively participated in many charitable organizations as well. He was a member of the Rotary in Bridgeport and Moundsville, WV since 1977 having served as the past president of the Moundsville Rotary. Dr. Chin was a member of the American Medical Association, Abdominal Surgeons of America, American Philippine Physician Association, Bisaya Medical Association, WV Philippine Medical Association, Tri-State Philippine Association, and Ohio & Harrison County Medical Association. He had a passion for singing and enjoyed his music ministry as a choir member for his church as well as being a glee club member in medical school. One of his last remarks was saying he wanted to sing “Ave Maria” with the angels in heaven to Mary.

Known to be a compassionate physician to his patients, Dr. Chin felt called to extend his services to the poor in the Philippines by providing free clinical services. Since 1985 he had been involved annually by volunteering his time to provide his medical services in remote villages with his colleagues. These medical missions led to his vision for establishing the San Giuseppe Mission and Health Center in Canlaon, Philippines in 2014 that provides free medical services, medicines, and a lie-in hospital for the community. However, locally, he still enjoyed volunteering at the local Catholic Charities.

Dr. Chin and his wife also enjoyed the company of his family and friends. They often hosted gatherings at their WV home like Christmas, New Year’s, and Birthdays to bring fellowship and love. He dearly loved his wife, children, grandchildren, and immediate relatives, but he also loved people in general which included all his patients, friends, and many others who sought his help.

Survivors include his wife of 52 years, Teresa dela Fuente Chin; children, James Chin (Michelle “Peachie”) of Irmo, SC and John Chin (Helen) of Alexandria, VA; sisters, Elizabeth Forrest (Bill) of Virginia Beach, VA and Antoinieta Vicher of Dumaguete City, Philippines; grandchildren, Nicole, Katie, Alli, Johnathan and Victor Samuel Chin; and nieces and nephews, Perla, Pacita, Phyllis, Paul, Bishop Patrick Daniel, Petronilo, Phillip, Vivian, Vigene, Vibeth, Robert, Carl, and Jason. He was predeceased by Obdulia Parcon (sister), Agustin Chin (brother), Phoebe (niece) and Perseus (nephew).

In lieu of flowers, memorials are suggested to be made to Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church.

Visitation will be on Sunday, June 9, from 5:30 PM until 8:00 PM at Whitaker Funeral Home, Newberry, SC. with Rosary recitation beginning at 5:00 PM.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church, Chapin, SC on Monday, June 10, 9:30 AM. Burial will follow in the church cemetery.

Active pallbearers will be Johnathan Chin, Victor Samuel Chin, Paul Parcon, Philip Parcon, Joe Pangilinan, Melvin Saludes, Mario Mejia, Bill Forrest, Robert Forrest, and Gregory Pastidio.
