Sorsoganons mourn death of former Sorsogon City dad

SORSOGON CITY, April 20, 2016 (PIA) – Families, friends and supporters expressed their deepest sympathy and condolences to family of former chief executive of this city, Leovic Reyes Dioneda, who passed away last night, April 19, around 9:00 pm.

It can be recalled that Dioneda was rushed to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) early afternoon on Monday, April 18, after he was found unconscious in his residence in Pangpang, Sorsogon City.

Atty. Ron Espinosa, spokesperson for the Dioneda family, said he was repeatedly revived by his medical doctors since he was rushed to the hospital until signs of his recovery were shown early in the morning of Tuesday as Dioneda’s blood pressure stabilized, moved his hands and opened his eyes. The former city mayor, however, died on this same fateful day.

Dioneda served Sorsogon City as mayor for six years from 2007 to 2013 and as municipal mayor of then municipality of Bacon before it was merged to Sorsogon town and became Sorsogon City. He was a close rival of incumbent City Mayor Sally A. Lee for city mayor post.

Dioneda is also a mayoralty candidate under PDP-Laban this 2016 elections.

He was 60 years old at the time of his death.

Details of his internment will be announced later. (BARecebido, PIA-5/Sorsogon)
