If Billionaire Businessman Manny Villar is Dead or Alive?
People are curiously asking if Filipino billionaire businessman and former politician Manny Villar is dead or alive after some unofficial sources claimed he passed away on October 25, 2022, at the age of 72.
We send our thoughts our prayers to him and his family and our team wishes him to be in total health.
He previously worked as a senator from 2001 to 2013 and as the President of the Senate of the Philippines since 2006 for two years. Before his stint in the senate, he represented the district of Las Piñas–Muntinlupa from 1992 to 1998, and Las Piñas’s at-large district from 1998 to 2001.

The billionaire was born to a poor family in Tondo, a poor and densely inhabited district of Manila. Following graduating from the University of the Philippines, he served as an accountant and financial analyst, then launched a highly successful business in real estate.
Villar’s companies have made more than 200 thousand homes, and his business career made him the richest person in the Philippines. He ran for president in the 2010 presidential elections under the Nacionalista Party but lost to Benigno Aquino III.
As a young boy at the University of the Philippines Diliman, Manny became buddies with Cynthia Aguilar, his classmate at the UP College of Business Administration. They married at age 25. They have three children: Manuel Paolo, Mark, and Camille.

No Report about if Manny Villar is Dead or Alive
While official sources have not clarified the exact story about if Manny Villar is dead or alive at this time, unofficial sources announced that he passed away because of an illness.
He was reportedly found hanging under a bridge. He was found dead at time 8.30. This is the news that is spread online very soon.
Manuel Villar was born on December 13, 1949, in Tondo, an impoverished and densely populated district of Manila. He was the second-born of nine children of his parents in a poor family. His father, Manuel “Maning” Montalban Villar, Sr., was a government worker from Cabatuan, Iloilo who operated as an inspector for the Bureau of Fisheries.
His mom, Curita “Curing” Bamba, was a seafood vendor from an impoverished family in Orani, Bataan. The family lived in a small rented apartment in a run-down slum area. Villar’s dad was finally granted a year-long scholarship for higher education in the US, which led to a job upgrade to a director position in the Department of Agriculture and Natural Resources upon his comeback.
Due to cramped conditions in Tondo, Villar’s father obtained a ₱16,000 loan from the Government Service Insurance System, payable in 20 to 25 years, to build a home in San Rafael Village, Navotas.
When he was a child, Villar originally attended Isabelo Delos Reyes Elementary School, a nearby public school in Tondo. He also assisted his mother in selling shrimp and fish at the Divisoria Public Market, as early as age six, in order to help earn the money to support his siblings and himself at school. However, accompanying his mother interfered with his education and he was forced to drop out of school during Grade 1.
He was then registered at Tondo Parochial School, a private school in Tondo run by priests, to finish his elementary education.
