Former Bukidnon Vice Governor Engr. Wenifredo Agripo of Valencia City has passed away. After battling illness, the veteran politician has died and left quite a legacy in the Bukidnon political landscape.
Agripo also served as a former Valencia councilor (when it was still a municipality) and Sangguniang Panlalawigan member. A close friend of Senator TG Guingona, Agripo also served as the senator’s chief of staff at the Bukidnon satellite office and as the Liberal Party’s provincial liaison officer.
I have fond memories of Sir Wenie. Back during my local newspaper writer days, he always accommodated me and my requests – be they be for interviews, proposals, event coverages etc. He always had a ready smile for me and I found him to be very pleasant, courteous and professional. However, he can also be game! Check out his cool smile when I took the photo above back in 2012. He even gathered his family and supporters for that photo 🙂
Rest in peace, sir. May the Lord’s eternal light shine upon you.
My deepest condolences to the Agripo clan.
