Two veteran actors recently passed away due to illness.
Johnny Delgado, known for his gruff but humane portrayals, succumbed to the cancer of the immune system with which he have been battling for the past two years.
Johnny left behind his wife, director Laurice Guillen, and daughters Anna and Ina Feleo.
The family said that Johnny died peacefully, after insisting that he be brought home after he started coughing up blood.
He was last seen in projects as the television series “May Bukas Pa”.
Meanwhile, action star Bernard Bonin also succumbed to multiple organ failure—a complication of his diabetes—at the Philippine Heart Centre.
Like Johnny, the former “Palos” also died peacefully. Said his wife in an interview with ABS-CBN, “He died in peace. Wala akong nakitang struggle.”
Bernard’s wife and most of his children (among them Richard and JC Bonin and beauty queen Charlene Gonzales-Muhlach) was present when he breathed his last.
