Rico J Puno Death
His family through his sister-in-law Anna Puno confirmed his death in an Instagram post: “I am seized with deep emotional shock when I found out that our OPM King – Kuya Rico J. Puno has passed away this morning (Manila time). Numbed with grief, I would like to call on all entertainers in the OPM Industry as well as his worldwide fans to stop for a moment and say a prayer to one of the most respected singers in the country. I cannot help but say it was serendipitous that Starmedia prepared a solo 40th Anniversary concert for him and a US tour with the OPM stalwarts and colleagues just recently. Little did I know that this is his Final Bow in the live entertainment world. We will forever miss the TOTAL ENTERTAINER…but his songs will forever cherish in our hearts.”
