The daughter of bilyonaryo Lucio Tan said the death of his namesake has left a “big void in the heart” of the family.
On Monday, Vivienne Tan confirmed the death of her brother, Lucio “Bong” Tan Jr., following his collapse during a basketball game in Mandaluyong Saturday morning.
“It is with deep sorrow that I announce the passing of my brother, Lucio ‘Bong’ ’ Tan, Jr. this morning, November 11, 2019. He was 53. His untimely passing leaves a big void in our hearts and our Group’s management team which would be very hard to fill,” said Vivienne.
“Bong was a son, husband, father, friend and, most importantly, our elder brother whom we all relied on for advice, counsel and leadership. He is survived by his wife Julie and sons Hun hun (Lucio Tan III) and Kyle Tan,” she added.
“Our sincerest thanks to all who offered prayers and shared words of comfort during this hour of grief. Our family continues to request everyone to respect our wish for privacy as we go through this very difficult time. We ask for your prayers for the eternal repose of his soul. Wake details will be announced soon,” said Vivienne.
