Comedian Arvin "Tado" Jimenez Among the Dead in Bus Mishap

Sad to report that comedian Tado Jimenez was one of the casualties of a terrible bus mishap in the Mountain Province.

The actor was en route to attend one of his advocacies and projects PROJECT: LIFE BEGINS AT THE MOUNTAIN when the bus that he was on fell down a deep ravine. Yahoo adds that this was very ironic and I can see why.

I met the guy once, during the peak of their show Strangebrew (still showing at the time on UNTV)while waiting for an interview with a former ABS-CBN news anchor. We shared a couple of cigarettes, had a few laughs, he even gave us the reason why he was called 'Tado'.

Those few minutes with the guy said a lot about the man. He loves his kids and instilled a very deep sense of respect. His daughter in fact calls him "Ama" which is very, very deep.

Rest in Peace man.
