MANILA — Cesar Felix Bunagan, the father of comedian Michael V., has passed away.
The “Bubble Gang” star received messages of condolences from colleagues and close friends Monday, as he shared on Instagram a photo of two hands clasped.
In the caption, he wrote a prayer: “Almighty and merciful God, who hast bestowed upon mankind saving remedies and the gift of everlasting life, look graciously upon us Thy servants and comfort the souls which Thou hast made, that, in the hour of their passing, cleansed from all stain of sin, they may deserve to be presented to Thee, their Creator, by the hands of the holy angels. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.”
Michael V., who did not detail the cause of his father’s passing, had earlier asked for prayers for Mr. Bunagan’s healing.
“Holding on,” he had said in an October 5 Instagram post.
“Bring us back,” Michael V. then wrote last Friday in the caption of an old photo of his entire family, including a healthy Mr. Bunagan.
