MasterShowman.. Until the very end you were the epitome of the famous Showbiz line “the show must go on” it amazed me to see you doing radio work and still host for your show after your health scare last year. You would even go to Showbiz events like that of @iamnoelferrer's book launch in SM MOA even if it's far away and super traffic. Your passion for this business is unmatched. Growing up I would hear you and dad talk about the good and bad things about show business. The 2 faces of Showbiz that you so loved. Now it's time to take your final bow, Kuya Germs. You will be terribly missed by the people in the industry that you loved so much and loved and respected you in return. Maraming Salamat Sa pag gabay at pagmamahal. I'm sure you and Tatay are already preparing for your first MasterShowman episode in Heaven. Wag niyo muna ako I-guest ha  Thank you for everything. We will miss you! Love you Kuya Germs… Paalam

Billy Crawford posted a heart warming message to the man he considers as a father.

Pa, I don't know where to begin. You've always been there when I needed you the most. You are the most generous, selfless, genuine, caring father/mentor anyone could ever ask for. You're one of the reasons why I'm still in this industry you love oh so much. I'm sad that I'm not there next to you to say my goodbyes. You will be missed tremendously. We fought, we laughed, we cried, we sang, we danced and we shared the same stage for so many years! And I want to just thank you for teaching me and guiding me through everything. It hurts to see you leave us, but God is right there to make you rest and enjoy eternity with Him. I also pray for your family to be strong and to carry a smile like you always did. You will always be our MASTER SHOWMAN! Most importantly you will always be my father and I will always be your makulit na adopted son! RIP, Pa. I love you.
