Veteran Actor Domingo “Menggie” Cobarrubias died this morning, March 26, 2020 due to pneumonia. He was 68.
His wife Gina Gina Jorge Cobarrubias confirmed his passing on Facebook.
“Goodbye my love. Thank you for the 30 wonderful years. I love you. Dear God please give me the strength to be able to face this very difficult moment of my life,” she wrote.
In a separate post, his niece Patricia Prudon said he died of pneumonia complications while still waiting to confirm if he’s NCOV-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) positive.
“Rest in peace, Tito Menggie! We love you! Thank you for being a father, a lawyer, a general and a whole lot more roles to Philippine cinema. You will surely be missed,” Patricia penned for his uncle.
Menggie is best known for his projects Jaguar (1979), Mauban: Ang resiko (2014), Impostor (2010), and The Last Fool Show (2019).
