The Philippine Astronomical Society deeply mourns the passing away of Fr. Victor Badillo - the much-acclaimed Father of Philippine Astronomy, the PAS great founder, and the PAS unsurpassed president for 20 years.
He died on October 26 at 7:33 AM. Wake was held at the Loyola School of Studies, Ateneo de Loyola University campus where the funeral mass was similarly held on Wednesday October 29.
"Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on, and cherished memories never fade because a loved one’s gone. Those we love can never be more than a thought apart. For as long there is a memory, they’ll live on in our hearts." - Author Unknown
You will be in our hearts and minds forever, Fr. Badillo. Every PASer cherishes your memory and considers it their lifetime treasure for having you as their mentor in astronomy, their inspiration, and their personal friend.
