IN PHOTOS: A solemn farewell to Comedy King Dolphy
MANILA, Philippines - The country's King of Comedy was laid to rest on Sunday, July 15, in a solemn ceremony and amid fine weather.
Below are some images at the Heritage Park in Taguig City where Rodolfo "Dolphy" Vera Quizon Sr. as his family and friends spent last moments with him before he was buried.
About 35,000 fans from all over the country have previously paid their last respects to the country's most popular comedian, but were not allowed to join in the ceremonies on the final day since the family requested privacy. Dolphy's almost 7-decade-long career brought cheer to the Philippines during its most turbulent and darkest moments.
