I was surprised when someone commented “RIP Idol” on the Filipina Explorer FB fan page after that blog post RSS feed about Grin Department vocalist Bong Pascasio’s hospitalization I wrote several months back.
True enough, when I surfed the web I found articles on the 90s frontman’s passing at 8:26am this morning after a winding battle with colon cancer. He had two previous operations this year, one for chronic abdominal illness and another for tumor extraction. News was delivered by his daughter Gege, who posted, “May you rest in peace dad. so much and we will miss you… You legend!”
Have a good journey to the other side, Bong.
