Gone too soon. In 2011, we lost some boys and men. Sometime in February, model-actor Leo Rabago [right] died of colon cancer at the age of 48. Leo was one of the popular sexy stars in the 80s and 90s, after a highly successful career as a model. A month after, John Apacible [left] was killed at the age of 38. Like Leo, he was also one of the more prominent sexy actors in the 90s.
The most shocking loss occurred in April when promising young actor AJ Perez died in a car accident. Tall and handsome AJ was being groomed to be the next important young actor of his time until fate interfered tragically.
Early December, singer, actor, theater performer RJ Rosales died of unknown causes at the young age of 37. To fans of 90s Sunday noontime shows, he was one of the hosts and singers of ABS-CBN’s ASAP. He then went to Singapore for a successful career in theater and on television.
