The Senate flew the Philippine flag at half-mast starting Saturday (June 27) as a gesture of mourning the death of former Senator Ramon Revilla Sr.

An actor before entering politics, Revilla died due to heart failure Friday (June 26) at the age of 93. His son and namesake, Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr., paid tribute to his father in a Facebook post, saying he “lived a full life.”

Revilla served as senator from 1992 to 2004. Among the notable legislation he passed include the amendment to the Family Code, which allowed illegitimate children to use their father’s surname if they have been recognized by the latter.

Senate President Vicente Sotto III remembered Revilla for his “kind and good heart,” as well as love for the masses.

“He has taught me that public adulation is not and should never be used as a benchmark for who and what a true public servant is,” Sotto said in a statement.
