March 6, 2017

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte gave his condolences to the grieving family of Sgt. Joseph Calimutan of the Presidential Security Group (PSG) at the PSG Compound in Pandacan, Manila.

Sgt. Calimutan died of heart failure on March 3, 2017 at the Manila Doctors Hospital. He served for 17 years in the military before succumbing to natural causes.

President Duterte spent time talking with the widow, Mauricia Calimutan, and the sister of the deceased, Marlin Calimutan, to give words of comfort and promised support to alleviate the burden of the grieving family. The President also gave a message to the PSG members before leaving the wake of the late sergeant.

The body of Sgt. Calimutan is scheduled for transfer to Cagayan de Oro City on March 7, 2017.

The education of the three children left by Sgt. Calimutan would be financed by the Office of the President (OP). Also, the family would be assisted by the OP on the hospital bill payment, the mortuary services in Manila and in Cagayan de Oro City, and on the other needs of the bereaved family.
