“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you the rest. Take my yoke upon and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For the yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Matthew 11:28-30

Dear All,

It is with our deepest sadness and sorrow to inform you that our beloved Mayor Romy Lim Salvame (April 18, 1954 – November 28, 2020), has passed away and joined our Creator yesterday, November 28, 2020 at 08:02 in the morning due to illness.

As it very untimely, we know that it is very difficult for us to face the death of our dearest Mayor Roy especially in this time of pandemic. Even in hospital bed, Mayor Roy makes calls to the officials and employees of the municipality to make constant reminders and making sure that the daily grinds of public service – which is prioritizing the well-being of Taytayanos are well placed.

He wanted to prioritize and ensure that the safety and wellness of all Taytayanos and their families are ensured in this pandemic.

We respected his wishes not to inform his beloved constituents of his hospitalization. Thus, this news comes at a surprise for each and every one, most especially his kababayans in Taytay.

For those of you who knew Mayor Roy, we ask that you remember and celebrate his benevolence, humility, leadership and kindness. For those who did not know Mayor Roy very well, we ask respect for your own sadness and support us with your understanding on this challenging times.

For those who want to see and pay their final respects to Mayor Roy, the details of the funeral are as follows:
