Ka Bay passes away

Bayani Abadilla, writer, professor and journalist, passed away last May 14 after a long battle with lymphoma.

Son of pioneering Filipino modernist poet Alejandro G. Abadilla, Bayani was a veteran of the First Quarter Storm. He was one of the founders of the progressive writers group Paksa or Panulat Para sa Kaunlaran ng Sambayanan and wrote for various underground and opposition newspapers and publications during Martial Law.

After the fall of the Marcos dictatorship, Bayani taught at the Polytechnic University of the Philippines upon PUP Pres. Nemesio Prudente’s return to the university in 1986.

He continued to write for progressive publications like Ang Masa. He also wrote for the Filipino broadsheet Diario Uno during the Estrada administration.

He was a well-loved Literature professor in PUP and scholar of the Filipino language until his retirement in 2003.

In 2006, he published his first collection of poems, Sigliwa Kamao.

At the time of his death, he was associate editor for Pinoy Weekly, a progressive newsmagazine in the Filipino language.

He is survived by wife Patricia, son Magtanggol and daughters Lualhati, Malaya and Filipinas. He was 67 years old.

He is interred at Funeraria Paz at Araneta Avenue, Quezon City. A tribute for Ka Bay will be given by friends and colleagues will be held on May 17, Saturday, 7pm. He will be laid to rest on May 18, Sunday.
