Senators pay tribute to Biazon

INCUMBENT and former senators on Monday paid their last respects to former senator and Armed Forces chief of staff Rodolfo “Pong” Biazon who died on June 12 at the age of 88.

The Senate held a necrological service for Biazon with former Senate presidents Franklin Drilon and Vicente Sotto 3rd in attendance.

Former senators Gregorio “Gringo” Honasan 2nd, Jose “Joey” Lina Jr., and Sotto gave their respective eulogy.

Biazon was a three-term senator (1992 to 1995, 1998 to 2004, and 2004 to 2010) and a two-term member of the House of Representatives, representing the lone district of Muntinlupa (2010 to 2013 and 2013 to 2016).
