With a heavy heart, Bantay-Sabong sadly informs everyone the passing of a true lover of sabong and a great friend - Donato Clemente.
He was a very active founding member of the United Backyard Breeders Association (UBBA) and was one of four individuals who spearheaded the putting up of the Rizal Gamefowl Breeders Association.
He left behind his wife, Evelyn and three daughters who express their whole-hearted thanks to all those who have helped them in the most trying times of their lives, especially the cockers who have gone out of their way to extend a helping hand with special thanks to Charlie Cruz and Joey Sy.
Donat's remains lie in state at their residence in Bgy. Bilibiran, Binangonan, Rizal. Interment details will be announced later, as the family is still waiting for a brother who will be coming home from America.
I enjoined everyone to pray for the eternal repose of his soul.
