Decoroso “Dick” Seguerra, the father of Ice Seguerra, passed away yesterday, November 15, after losing his battle with cancer.
The singer shared the sad news on his Instagram account, along with a photo of his late father.
"Our family is saddened to announce the passing of our beloved, Decoroso 'Dick' Seguerra. Umakyat na siya sa heaven bandang tanghali ngayong Nov. 15, 2020 para makipag-videoke kina Matt Monroe at Frank Sinatra," Ice wrote in the caption.
He said his father "touched many lives by his kindness, gentle support, and most of all, his sense of humor."
Ice also expressed his gratitude to everyone who extended their "prayers, good thoughts, and deeds" to their family.
He then ended his post writing, "Makakapahinga ka na, OG Pogi. No more pain. We love you always and forever, Daddy."
Prior to his father's passing, Ice had been posting updates about his father's condition. Last October 30, he shared that his dad was very happy and felt "ready."
"Tinawag niya kaming lahat nung isang araw, handa na raw siya. He talked to all of us, with so much love and gratitude. Pagkatapos noon, ang sabi niya sa aming lahat, 'masaya ako.' At masaya rin kami dahil wala kaming ibang hangad kundi maramdaman niya ang kaligayahan. He deserves that," he wrote.
Ice said that he will soon announce the details of his father's wake once they have finalized it.
May your soul rest in peace, Mr. Seguerra.
