Actor-singer Kean Cipriano on Thursday took to Instagram to mourn the death of his father, whom he said was his idol and inspiration.

The 52-year-old Edgar Cipriano passed away on Thursday morning due to cardiac arrest, according to a report from Philippine Entertainment Portal (


“This is the saddest day of my life. Dumating ang araw na pinakakinakatakutan ko. Ang bilis, [nakakagulat pero] alam kong (The day I have been dreading has finally come. It was so fast and surprising. But I know) everything is written in heaven and [everything] is in God’s will. I will miss you Dad! I’m sure the angels will take good care of you. I’m sure you’re in a peaceful place now! At alam kong magkikita din tayo dyan one day (And I know we will see each other there one day),” an emotional Cipriano said in the caption.

“Thanks for devoting your life to our family. For living an awesome life with us and for us. Dadalhin ko lahat ng natutunan ko sayo habangbuhay! Kasama ka sa lahat ng pangarap ko (I will carry all the lessons I learned from you for as long as I live. You are included in all my dreams),” he added.


The Callalily frontman said he would miss a lot about his late father, especially the moments that the two of them shared, and vowed to take care of and look after the rest of the family.

“Mamimiss kita kakwentuhan, kaasaran at kainuman! Mamimiss ko na yakapin at halikan ka! Yung tawa mo, yung boses mo… Lahat!! Lagi kang nasa puso ko (I will miss talking to you, teasing you and sharing drinks with you. I will miss hugging and kissing you. Your laugh, you voice… Everything. You are always in my heart)!! You will always be my idol and my inspiration,” he said.

“I love you so much Dad! I promise to take good care of mommy, and my brothers! Please always watch over us! We’ll be strong for you! Mahal na mahal ka namin daddy!! Maraming nagmamahal sayo at maraming kami na pinagdadasal ka (We love you very much, Daddy. Many people love you and a lot of us are praying for you),” Cipriano added.

Cipriano also urged his followers to express their love to their parents while they still have time and not to take them for granted.

“Life is too short. Kaya [habang] may oras pa tayo sa mundo, mahalin nyo ang mga magulang nyo (That’s why while you still have the time, love your parents). Peace!” he said. RAM
