He is survived by his father Simeon and siblings Eduardo, Encarnita, Eleanor and Enrico.
“We are deeply saddened by the early demise of our loved one Manny...But we have joy in our hearts as we know his soul will now rest in peace,” his family said in a text message.
His remains lie at the Ilagan chapel in Cabanatuan City. Interment is on May 23 at the Sagrada Familia in Kapitan Pepe subdivision.
