The wake of former Senate President Aquilino “Nene” Pimentel Jr. will be held in Taguig, the Senate building, and in Cagayan de Oro, his son Senator Koko Pimentel said Sunday.
In a Facebook post, Koko said his father’s remains will lie at Chapels 7 and 8 of the Heritage Memorial Park in Taguig City from Sunday, 7 p.m., until Tuesday, October 22.
On Wednesday morning, October 23, Pimentel’s wake will be transferred to the Senate of the Philippines in Pasay City.
Pimentel's remains will be brought to the Cagayan de Oro City Hall on the afternoon of Wednesday, October 23, and will stay there until Friday morning, October 25.
On Friday afternoon, Pimentel’s remains will be returned to the Heritage Memorial Park.
The schedule of the interment will be announced later by the family.
The former Senate president passed away early Sunday morning after a bout with lymphoma and pneumonia.
Malacañang thanked Pimentel for his "long, fearless and principled track record" of public service.
Pimentel spent almost five decades of his life in public service and authored the Local Government Code, a landmark legislation. —Julia Mari Ornedo/KG, GMA News
