MANILA, Philippines — Longtime Philippine Daily Inquirer columnist Conrado de Quiros has died, his brother, public relations practitioner Paul de Quiros, announced in a Facebook post late on Monday.

“With profound sadness, we announce the passing of our brother, Conrado S. de Quiros. He will be greatly missed by our loving family and friends,” he said.

“Conrad will remain in our hearts forever. Rock on in heaven, Choy.” 


The columnist was born May 27, 1951, in Manila, though he traces his routes to Naga City in Camarines Sur.


Conrado de Quiros started his column “There’s the Rub” in November 1987 in the now-defunct Philippine Daily Globe. He brought the column over to the Philippine Daily Inquirer in July 1991.

De Quiros also wrote several books, among them “Flowers from the Rubble: Essays on Life, Death and Remembering” (1990), “Dance of the Dunces” (1991), “Dead Aim: How Marcos Ambushed Philippine Democracy” (1997), and “Tongues on Fire” (2007).

“For those who wish to pay their last respects to Conrad, a wake to honor his life will take place at Loyola Memorial Chapels – Commonwealth, Q.C. (Premier 1), starting 12nn of November 8 (Wednesday) until November 10 (Friday). 

In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate your prayers for the eternal repose of his soul,” Paul said.
