Solicitor General Frank Chavez Dead at 66

Solicitor General Frank Chavez: a good bit of hat swagger by a good man
 Solicitor General Frank Chavez died of a stroke and complications of blood cancer last Wednesday night at Medical City in Pasig. The former Solicitor General has been battling lymphoma since 2009. He was 66.

His body was cremated Thursday morning and his wake will be at the Santuario de San Antonio Parish in Forbes Park in Makati. He will be buried on Sunday at the Heritage Park in Taguig City.

Chavez was a human rights lawyer during the Marcos era and he served as Solicitor General from 1987 to 1992 under the late President Corazon Aquino. He was nominated to succeed ousted Chief Justice Renato Corona after the Corona trial but declined and instead asked the Supreme Court to order Congress to strictly follow a six-month rotation scheme.

Frank Chavez was born on February 6, 1947 in Sagay, Negros Occidental. He took up law at the University of the Philippines and passed the Bar in 1972. He was a founding partner of the Chavez Laureta & Associates law firm.

He leaves behind a wife and his 3 grown-up children - Katrina, a dentist; Stephanie like him a lawyer and Ingrid the youngest works in the fashion industry.
