Popoy Gomez remembered

By Feling de Jesus

A golf tournament was held on September 14, 2014, to remember Conrado “Popoy” Gomez, a man who worked for the Filipino community of Winnipeg and also made a lot of people laugh.

Mrs. Cris Gomez, Allan Gomez, relatives and friends worked with the Philippine Amateur Golf Association of Manitoba (PAGAM) to organize the tournament played at the Windsor Park Golf Course with reception held at La Merage Restaurant.

Winners of the Popoy Memorial PAGAM Golf Tournament were Aldrin Ferrer for Division 1, Ner Eugenio for Division 2, Noel Silva for Division 3 and Virgie Gayot for the Ladies Division.

The day provided everybody with time to remember Popoy and his sense of humour. In the spirit of Poy’s humour, I said as the rain began to fall at the group’s last hole, “Poy is having a laugh at our expense.”
