Rappler reported that the good Senator Juan Flavier had passed away yesterday.
I believe the he was among the few who gave his best while serving in the government. He was effective as a Secretary of Health. I would say that Filipinos would remember him more than the other who served as secretaries.
As a senator, he gained a reputation for being competent and more importantly with no taint of corruption.
I came to know of his column in Manila Bulletin during my job hunting days after graduation.
Thank you for your service, good Senator.
