Subas Herrero, an actor comedian best known for his role in the 80's TV hit “Champoy,” passed away on Friday morning, according to one of his best friends.
 
Veteran actor Noel Trinidad told GMA News Online in a phone interview on Friday that Herrero (Ricardo Wright Herrero in real life) passed away at the age of 69.
 
“Kaninang umaga lang [siya pumanaw],” Trinidad said.
 
Herrero died of double pneumonia at a hospital in Rochester, New York, Trinidad said, quoting Herrero's wife.
 
“Siyempre malungkot. Parang kapatid ko na 'yan eh,” Trinidad replied when asked how he felt about the passing of his friend.

Trinidad said he and Herrero had been together from grade school to college in plays and glee clubs at the Ateneo de Manila University.
 
Herrero portrayed different roles from 1970 to 2000 with his last project being “Noriega: God's Favorite” where he played the role of Gabriel Arias.
 
But he was remembered most for his role in “Champoy” which aired from 1980 to 1986. The show also had veteran actors Trinidad, Gary Lising, Tessie Tomas and Cherie Gil in the cast.
 
There is no word yet on when Herrero's wake will take place and where he would be buried.
 
Herrero, whose birthday is on April 3, is survived by his wife, four daughters, and one son.
