Bayambang Mayor Cezar Quiambao said the late Dr. Henry Fernandez made a positive impact on thousands of Bayambangueños.
Fernandez passed away due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) at the Lung Center of the Philippines on March 20.
“Today we grieve the loss of a great doctor, father, brother, uncle, lolo, and friend. Dr. Henry Fernandez lived a life dedicated to public service with his role as the “doktor ng bayan” and advisor to the town’s leaders,” Quiambao said.
“He has helped each and every Bayambangueño in one way or another through his words and through his actions,” he added.
Quiambao said he won’t let Fernandez be forgotten.
“Dr. Fernandez, your impact on the lives of thousands of Bayambangueños will never be forgotten. Your love for your family is remarkable and your love for your town is unquestionable. We promise to keep your memory alive in our hearts forever,” he said.
“Rest well, Doc. Thank you for everything,” Quiambao added.
