Veteran actor Chinggoy Alonso passed away last Sunday, October 15. He was 67 years old.

According to his manager, Shirley Kwan, Alonso died at 11:30 p.m. on Sunday at the Chinese General Hospital in Manila due to colon cancer.

Kwan said arrangements are being finalized for the actor's wake at the Garden of the Divine Word in Christ the King in Quezon City.

A distinguished theater actor since the '60s, Alonso was also part of many films and teleseryes. His recent projects include the ABS-CBN shows "Sana Bukas Pa ang Kahapon" and "Wildflower," and the movies "Etiquette for Mistresses" and "The Healing."

A product of the University of the Philippines, Alonso joined the international group of the UP Concert Chorus and appeared in many concerts and musicals here and abroad.

Theater aficionados also remember his portrayals of Captain von Trapp in "The Sound of Music," Don Quixote in "Man of La Mancha," and Professor Higgins in "My Fair Lady."
