In Loving Memory of Atty. Lamberto C. Dizon – BCYF Advisory Council Member
February 28, 2017
It is with a heavy heart that we inform you our beloved friend, and BCYf Advisory Council Member, Atty. Lamberto C. Dizon, passed away last February 28, 2017.
Atty. Dizon was an important figure in BCYF, and a close personal friend of BCYF Founder and Chairman, Mr. Tony Yap.
It was Atty. Dizon who suggested that Mr. Yap honor his late father, Catalino D. Yap through an awards program for teachers, that became the Dalubhasang Tanglaw Awards. It ran for over a dozen years and morphed into the Search for Hometown Heroes.
When Mr. Yap decided to create the Catalino D. Yap Foundation (now known as the Benita and Catalino Yap Foundation), Atty. Dizon was there together with Bro. Andrew Gonzalez(+), Atty. Jun Salvador and Mariano Un Ocampo III (+).
Atty. Dizon was a high school graduate of St. Anthony College of Technology (the school system where BCYF belongs to), Class of 1955.
He will forever be regarded as one of our “BCYF Angels“.
Rest in peace, Atty. Dizon!
