The family and friends of Joey Paras announced the passing of the known comedian and director.
In a Facebook post, the ‘Bekikang’ star said that the family of Joey was also facing several difficulties as they couldn’t take his body at home because of hospital bills.
That was why the camp of the comedian was asking the netizens to participate on the fundraising they were doing to help Joey’s family.
“To all of our family and friends, we are saddened to announce that our Tito Joey Paras, passed away and joined our Creator this afternoon, October 29, 2023 at 5:40pm. Unfortunately his heart wasn’t able to recover anymore,” Kim Cabrillas said.
“Currently, his remains are still at the hospital’s morgue. We need to settle his hospital bills for us to take him home. Our family is knocking at your kind and generous heart to help us raise a fund to cover his hospital bills.
“Our family are still raising funds to pay for Tito Joey’s Funeral Service and other expenses as well to help us transfer him to Quezon City,” she added.
Joey’s health problems that were discovered in 2018 put his family in financial difficulties, and a little donation would help the bereaved.
