ILAGAN CITY, Philippines – Former Isabela governor and now Cauayan City Mayor Benjamin Dy died of a lingering illness at a Manila hospital shortly after midnight yesterday.  He was 61.

Dy’s younger brother, Gov. Faustino Dy III, confirmed his brother’s death in a telephone interview with The STAR but did not give details.

Unconfirmed reports said the former governor died of lung cancer at the Saint Luke’s Medical Center.

Dy filed his certificate of candidacy for mayor but later allowed his son, Bernard, to substitute for him.

He was Isabela governor from 1992 to 2001.
