Bicolano Bontoc bus crash victim comes home

From Bam Morillo's Facebook Account

The remains of Giovanni "Bam" Morillo, one of the casualties of the ill-fated GV Florida Transport bus, arrived in Legazpi City today.

His cadaver was received by his grieving family, who are still in a state of disbelief over the untimely demise of their 32-year-old kin.

Morillo is survived by wife Liezel Madridano Morillo and two daughters.

In an interview, one of Morillo's relatives denied that GV Florida Bus Transport, Inc. extended help or even attempted to establish communication with them.

Before his death, Morillo was creative head of Solar News. 

In 2005, he served as an assistant colorist of the visual effects team of the movie Awaken.

In the same year, he was cast in the movie Lasponggols, a finalist in the 2005 Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival.

Legazpi City-born Morillo was born on March 1, 1981. He studied at MABA Computer Oriented High School and Bicol University.

Meanwhile, Morillo's friends in Metro Manila uploaded a video to pay tribute to their friend: Bam's Send Off

The video description reads:

Thirty-minutes away from its destination -- a Florida Trans bus carrying over 40 passengers plunged into a 116-meter deep ravine in Bontoc on February 7, 2014. Among the fatalities was Solar News' creative head, Giovanni Morillo, known to his friends as Bam. He was 32. Bam's survived by his wife Liezel and their two young children. His remains lie in state at the Saint Peter's Chapel along Araneta Avenue in Quezon City. He will be flown to his hometown in Legazpi City, Albay on Tuesday (Feb. 11)

Our condolences to Bam's family and friends.

He will be missed.

Our condolences as well to the families of those who perished in this gruesome accident.
