Sen. Francis Pangilinan’s message of condolences to the loved ones of Mr. John Gokongwei Jr.

November 10, 2019

We offer our deepest condolences to Mr. John Gokongwei Jr.’s wife Elizabeth and children Lance, Robina, Lisa, Faith, Hope, Marcia, and the rest of his family and friends.

His legendary zest for learning and his boldness in trying out new things and his love of work and creating — regardless of his age or appearance — have been a guidepost for how to live.

Thank you for these and also for — regardless of the political winds — keeping on investing in the Philippines, employing thousands of Filipinos, and producing useful and affordable products and services.
