Vice-presidential candidate Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr. expressed deepest sadness when he learned German “Kuya Germs” Moreno passed away on Jan. 8. Moreno was a staunch supporter of the Marcoses.
The senator dispatched immediately a statement to members of the media, which reads:
My family and I are deeply saddened by the passing of a true icon, German Moreno or Kuya Germs.
He is a big loss to the movie industry which he helped build and shape through his countless movies, television shows and the numerous talents he nurtured every step of the way.
Kuya Germs was a Father to many aspiring Actors and Actresses whom he transformed into Big Stars.
He is especially loved because he championed the many causes related to the movie industry including rallying for better pay and treatment for those working behind the scenes.
For my family, Kuya Germs had been and will always be a true friend whose support never wavered despite all the challenges. We very much appreciate how he stuck with us through thick and thin and was proud of it.
Truly a great man with a big heart and with conviction.
Kuya Germs was at Senator Bongbong Marcos’ Proclamation Rally for Vice President in Puerta Real Gardens on Oct. 10, 2015, to express his full support for his candidacy.
