This was the home of Rafael and his wife Melecia. The couple emigrated to Canada from the Philippines and resided in Toronto. The couple purchased their new house in 1995 for $725,000.

Rafael and Melecia were part of the Catholic church and attended services regularly. The couple owned an optician business and they had a son, who now also works as an optician.

Rafael’s wife passed away around 2010-2011. Their house was put up for sale in 2015 for $2,300,000. It’s only speculation but I’m thinking Rafael moved into a long term care facility. The last listing for the address shows an Asian couple who own a numbered company under the house address.

Rafael passed away on April 18, 2022. The house was sold earlier in 2022 to an investor for $3,500,000.

This house isn’t a bankrupt lawyer’s house as claimed on YouTube.  When did you last hear of a lawyer going bankrupt? 🙂
