Endeared by his VCWD family for his fatherly leadership, he was the agency’s GM, the Chairman, the mentor, and the founder of VCWD Cooperative – but more importantly, he is simply the “Tatay” everyone could look up and call unto. Under his management, the coverage and operation were expanded, and additional connections and installations were implemented although the operation was hard and the income was insufficient to maintain the district. Had it not been for Tatay Romy’s strong-willed leadership to improve VCWD’s water service to the City, the agency would not be as successful as it is in the present. He dedicated 31 years of his life serving the populace of Valencia through his management in the agency as the General Manager for 25 years and as a member of the Board of Directors for six (6) years. Even after his retirement, he never cease to show his support to all the programs and activities of VCWD. Luke 20:36 “For they cannot die anymore, because they are equal to angels and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection.”To our Tatay Romy who is now in the service of the Lord, you are loved, and you will be dearly missed. May you rest in the loving arms of the Lord forevermore.
