Dick Israel passed away..

 So sorry to hear my old friend and movie colleague  DICK "TATS" ISRAEL (Ricardo Michaca) is no longer among us. He died at age 69 on Oct. 11 2016 in his residence in Manila.  He suffered health problems  already  after a stroke hit him, 6 years back. A fire that destroyed his home earlier this summer left him and his family homeless while his wife needed to be hospitalized due to smoke inhalation.

We first met in 1983 in a local movie production where I became a victim of the Vietnam war when I was executed by Dick.. 

  Dude I wish you could stand up again as I did after you shot me...

  My condolences and thoughts are with his relatives. R.I.P. Dick...
