Months after his mother passed away in November, Erik Santos is mourning the death of his father, Renato Santos, who died on Thursday, Aug. 10.

The singer confirmed his father’s passing through his Instagram page on Friday, Aug. 11. Renato was 70.


“Our beloved Tatay has now joined our Creator,” Erik said. “Mahal na mahal kita, Tay.”


Erik also included in his post the Bible verse 2 Timothy 4:7-8: “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for His appearing.”

Santos has yet to give further details on Renato’s death.
