Tech journalist Relly de Guzman Carpio, managing editor of gaming magazine Playground, has passed away this Wednesday. He was 39.
Newsbytes.com broke the news, getting in touch with Carpio’s wife, Philippines Graphic associate editor Alma Anonas-Carpio, who posted on Facebook that her husband succumbed to respiratory and cardiac arrest.
The local news portal cited that Carpio has been bedridden since 2011 due to a massive stroke. The IT Journalists Association of the Philippines (Cyberpress), where Carpio is an officer, staged a benefit concert in the same year to raise funds for his growing medical expenses at the Makati Medical Center.
Anonas-Carpio said that her husband’s wake is at the second floor of St. Hillary’s Chapel until Friday, 15 August. Marketing extends its deepest condolences.
