Gokongwei and now the younger Lucio Tan (Bong). I knew the latter as a nice and very down to earth guy. I would see him on Sundays at St Jude playing basketball with his schoolmates and friends. https://t.co/VqIHCMkFeB

I was a witness to how you love basketball and sports in general.
It was an honor shaking your hand several times, sir.
You will forever be missed, Boss Bong Tan.
