MANILA, Philippines—The body of Comedy King Rodolfo “Dolphy” Quizon was brought to his home for the last time in Parañaque City before it was transferred to the Dolphy Theater in ABS-CBN compound in Quezon City.

The hearse left The Heritage Memorial Park in Taguig City around 2 p.m. to take the body to his house in Marina Subdivision in Parañaque City, where he spent the last few years of his life with common-law wife Zsa Zsa Padilla.

Padilla in an earlier interview said it was Dolphy’s request to go home even while he was at the intensive care unit of the Makati Medical Center.

Afterwards, the body was brought to Dolphy Theatre in the ABS-CBN compound where his family, relatives and close friends from the showbiz industry could offer prayers and pay their last respects.

Eric Quizon’s manager, Dolor Guevarra, earlier said Dolphy’s body would stay at the Theater until around 3 a.m. Thursday before being transferred back to the Heritage Park.

A public viewing will be made available at 9 p.m. Wednesday until 2 a.m. Thursday inside Dolphy Theatre to give some fans a chance to take a final glimpse of the Comedy King.

As to the public viewing at the Heritage Park, Guevarra said the schedule was set to 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday until Saturday, before the “tentative” burial of the Comedy King on Sunday.

Senior Superintendent Tomas Apolinario said three mobile units and 20 police officers were deployed around the vicinity of Heritage Park to maintain peace and order.
