UNEP exec reminisces a good man
NAGA CITY – “A life well lived , a life well spent – a life that has simply touched the hearts of many.” This was how University of Northeastern Philippines (UNEP) Executive Vice President and EVP for Finance Deli A. Tibi, widow of Sir Eduardo Tibi described the journey of his late husband. After a year of mourning his loss, Mam Deli, as he is fondly called by loved ones, will now let go of the grief and embrace the memories and content herself with the thought that he is now in the loving arms of the Lord. As a fitting tribute to his memories, Mam Deli , together with her family, loved ones, friends and acquaintances arranged a simple but memorable gathering at Avenue Plaza Hotel on Wednesday, February 15. A photo gallery on how this man has lived life to the fullest was displayed at the hotel’s lobby. The photos are revelations of how Sir Ed has spent his life in a simple way, far from the sight of many but only to those persons close to his heart, especially his wife, Mam Deli and his only son, Jaypee. Eduardo Bugarin- Tibi was born on August 16, 1943 and joined our Creator, February 15 last year after suffering from post-surgery complications. He was 73. Prior to his death, he served as Chairman and President of Alfelor Sr. Memorial College, Inc. He is also a businessman, an architect and an educator. He was a doting father to their only son and has been the constant companion of his wife everywhere she goes- the reason why the void he has left just became so unbearable for his family. “What I will miss most about Daddy is his thoughtfulness. Every morning when I wake up, a good breakfast is already waiting for me- always. He would bring me food at the office too, ensuring that amidst the stack of paperworks, I will not be able to skip my meals. Those are just few of the little things that I will miss about him,” Ms Deli recalled.
