MANILA, Philippines – Sumakabilang buhay na si dating congressman and Camarines Sur governor Luis Villafuerte, Sr. sa edad na 86.
Ito ang kinumpirma ni incumbent Camarines Sur Rep. LRay Villafuerte, Miyerkoles.
Sa St. Luke’s Medical Center sa Taguig City binawian ng buhay ang matandang Villafuerte.
“He was not only my mentor and idol but also to many,” ani Rep. LRay. “He continues to be our inspiration as he always motivated us to be the best on whatever we do.”
“More than his great mind, he had such a big heart! His compassion was exceptional and astounding. If my father believed in something, he will fight for it intensely and will not stop at anything. He was a TRUE CHAMPION of good causes and a fighter! But more than being a fighter; he truly loved serving our people and nation. In fact when my sister Mylene was with him praying in his last few moments, my Father said, “I pray for the Nation, Lord!” , when my sister asked if there was anything else he wanted to pray for, He reiterated, “Just pray for this Nation,” paglalarawan pa ni LRay sa kanyang ama.
