THE UNIVERSITY Facilities Management Office’s in-house civil engineer, Lawrence Pangan, died on Feb. 4 after battling pancreatic cancer. He was 61.

Pangan served the University for 30 years and was involved in the construction of the Central Laboratory and other buildings, plans for campuses in Sta. Rosa, Laguna and General Santos City, and work on the new UST Hospital and Senior High School buildings.

He was the son of the late College of Science and Faculty of Engineering dean, Mariano Pangan.

“Halos lahat ng mga improvement ng University for 30 years, siya ang in-charge sa construction. Kahit may sakit [na] siya, nagpa-follow-up [pa rin] siya sa [progress] ng [construction],” Asst. Prof. Rodolfo Olaso, College of Fine Arts and Design faculty member and a close friend of Pangan, told the Varsitarian.

Condolences and prayers from Pangan’s colleagues poured on social media.

“Eternally grateful for the memories you have shared with us. We’ll never forget,” UST FMO Director Fr. Dexter Austria, O.P. said in a Facebook post.

Pangan’s wake was held at Loyola Memorial Chapels & Crematorium Commonwealth in Quezon City.

A Requiem Mass was held at Santisimo Rosario Parish on Feb. 9 before Pangan’s remains were interred at Holy Cross Memorial Park in Novaliches, Quezon City.
