Antonio " Tony" De La Cruz

Antonio De La Cruz, fondly called by friends "Tony" or "Gov" passed away due to lingering ailment lung and throat cancer at the Western Visayas Regional Hospital at the age of 57 recently.

He was born on June 8, 1957, a native of Barangay Ahong, Sibulan, Negros Oriental, son of Mr. and Mrs. Segundina and Dominador De La Cruz, hacienda farmworkers.

Looking for greener pasture, the family transferred their residence in Cadiz City, Negros Occidental where he finished his elementary studies in the Holy Family Elementary School and his secondary years at Negros Occidental High School.

He was under the tutelage of then Bishop Antonio Y. Fortich of the Diocese of Bacolod until he obtained his College Degree in Vocational Course in General Radio Communications Operation at the Progressive Technical School in Bacolod City. He worked for more than 10 years as Radio Communications Operator of MV Pacencia, an Inter-Island Vessel. He took a rest for a year until he was hired by then Bishop Antonio Y. Fortich as radio technician and operator at the Diocese of Bacolod.

Fighting for the cause of the depressed and oppressed sugar farm workers against landlords, political warlords and unscrupulous hacienda owners, he joined mass protest rallies and march caravan from Northern and Southern Negros and even in Dumaguete Negros Oriental, alongside close allies and brother mediamen Edgar Cadagat, Fred Sapa, among others.

It was in 1988, when Aaron Sorbito, his friend invited and convinced him to run for Governor of Negros Occidental against Daniel "Bitay" Lacson, now the GSIS Chairman because Bitay Lacson had no opponent at that time and no one dared to challenge him as the incumbent Governor. He parted ways in service to the Church following the order, directives and guidelines in entering politics. He lost in the Elections by only 1/3 vote against Bitay Lacson.
