Wake and funeral arrangements have yet to be announced. But it is safe to assume that Roilo Golez’s wake will be held at Funeraria Paz at Manila Memorial Park in Sucat, Paranaque.

Golez served as congressman from 1992 to 2001. Aside from this, he was also national security adviser to Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo from 2001 to 2004, a post he was very qualified to undertake being a former military man.
