Paul Artadi mourns passing of UE basketball boss Bong Tan


Paul Anthony Artadi was shocked like the rest of the country to hear about the businessman cum baller’s passing.

The San Juan councilor took his call for prayers on Facebook upon learning about the untimely demise of Lucio “Bong” Tan, Jr., one of the heirs of bilyonaryo Lucio Tan and currently top boss at PAL Holdings.

Artadi treats the younger Tan as a boss — but inside the court, having actively supported his alma mater, the University of the East Red Warriors. Tan was even head coach in the latest UAAP season for men’s basketball.

“My deepest condolences to my boss Lucio ‘Bong’ Tan, Jr. You will be missed,” Artadi said in a post.
