Requiescat in Pace

 Arnel Agbay, 1979–2006

I’m not really close to Arnel, but I was sad to learn that he passed away last Tuesday. I don’t know know the full details but it seems he succumbed to complications of a respiratory condition. The wake is at San Felipe Neri Church in Mandaluyong and the funeral is tentatively on Sunday.

Arnel was one of my councilmates back when I was a representative of my department to the Engineering Student Council, as well as a party-mate; he was one of the IE department reps then. He’s gay and he was definitely one of the liveliest people I’ve ever worked with. There was never a dull moment with him around.

His passing marks a milestone in my life. He is the first among my more-than-mere acquaintances and within my generation to pass on.

“Eternal rest give to him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him.”

This is a shock to me.

I wasn’t really close to him as well, but he was friendly and talks to everyone quite easily. We were classmates in the ROTC choir and we shared common friends both IE and ChE.

I heard about him a few years ago though never got the complete details; now this. Matatanda na pala talaga tayo, lalo na ako.  =)

May he rest in peace.

Ade, thanks.

Markku, kilala mo rin pala siya. Yeah, I was a little shocked myself. I wasn’t really expecting him to leave so suddenly.  :(
