On a somber note, we bid adieu to Sir Loreto "Loy" Monceda Palapos who returned to Our Creator on Valentine's Day, February 14, 2015 at The Medical City, Ortigas due to complications from diabetes. He is survived by wife Maria Guadalupe “Marie” Borja Estoque, his three daughters & their respective spouses: Maia & Dodo Dizon, Rima & Alhirt Llubit and Maida & Nino Jamir and grand children
He was larger than life and committed himself to dedicated service. More than the passion for public service & community involvement, he was known to have the eloquence of Demosthenes, the artistic influence of the playwright Aristophanes & the showmanship & bravura of Thespis.
As Fiel Angeli Gabin would like to say” Certainly, Sir Loy's a man like no other - gifted with remarkable talent, creativity and eloquence - truly an "alagad ng sining".... Requiescat in pace.”
To say that he would be missed in Bohol's business and arts & culture scene would be an understatement.
His greatest legacy is the founding of the Bohol Tri- Media and coining the term Sandugo which we have come to commemorate history & celebrate friendship every July
