Lower House mourns death of former CamSur Rep. Luis Villafuerte
The House of Representatives, led by Speaker Lord Allan Velasco, expressed its profound condolences on the passing of former Camarines Sur Representative and Governor Luis R. Villafuerte Sr.
“A seasoned legislator, he was an Assemblyman during the Interim and Regular Batasang Pambansa, representing Region V/Naga City and Camarines Sur, respectively,” said the lower chamber.
The older Villafuerte also represented the people of Camarines Sur’s 2nd district during the 13th and 14th Congresses, and 3rd district during the 15th Congress.
“We send our heartfelt prayers to the family and loved ones he has left behind, especially to his son and our colleague in the 18th Congress, Rep. Luis Raymund “LRay” F. Villafuerte, Jr,” said the House.
LRV passed away yesterday as confirmed by Rep. LRay in a Facebook post.
The Villafuerte patriarch was considered by many as Bicol’s political kingpin.
