    Edvin/ Bing and I have been schoolmates since Kindergarten onto high school at UP until we lost touch in college and by God’s divine intervention somehow met up once again at Kaiser Fremont in 2005 and we have been friends since then. As a classmate , I will never forget the chocolates ( my favorite 3 musketeers) he used to give me in high school and we were always seated next to each other in elementary school. I remember his hair to be so straight and neatly combed all the time and his uniform always so white and nicely ironed. His grandma was always there at school taking care of his needs and putting towel on his back whenever he perspires. As a friend , I will always treasure his kindnesss, gentleness and the goodness of his heart. He would always call me whenever he was at the ER or hospitalized ( both of us being nurses ) just to update me of his medical condition… I will miss those calls 😔 But mostly I will miss his loving friendship and thoughtfulness. Goodbye my dear friend and may you Rest In Peace in God’s loving Hands. My deepest sympathy and condolences to the family. May your faith in God strengthen you at this most difficult time . Will be keeping you all in prayer. 🙏🙏🙏🙏. Eden S. Domingo

    Heartfelt Condolences to the family of Edvin. Edvin was my classmate in UP Elementary School. We both belonged to the afternoon section. I have always thought of him as one of the “good boys”; he was one of those boys who did not tease or torture us girls. He happily played with us. He was a fun kalaro. We would run and play games like “Agawan Base” on the elem school grass quadrangle together with Renato, Don, Jess, Crizaldy, and Edwin. In high school he was still a “good teen”; with a calm and gentle demeanor. Still nice to the girls even if that time it was not cool to be so. Always with a warm smile. Always friendly. It was after many years and a few white hairs that I saw Edvin again. He still had that warm smile. He still had that calm and gentle demeanor. He was still friendly. I still saw that goodness in him. He was really a GOOD MAN. Rest in Peace my friend.

    A message from Liza Martinez “Deepest sympathies to the family of Bing Reyes. May God be your comfort and strength. We remember. May you rest in peace, our dear batchmate” – UP Elementary School Batch 1973

  • Portia De Guzman says:

    Bing and I were classmates at U.P. Integrated School Batch ’77. Those who knew Bing closely and not so closely, would have had the same impressions of him as a quiet, unassuming, polite, the “pretty boy” in the group, yet was never affected by his good looks. Bing brought these traits with him into adulthood and became the epitome of a true gentleman who only knew generosity towards his friends and infinite desire to become the best he can be and share his knowledge in the medical field. We were separated geographically, he to America; I to Australia. Though the years of absence in our lives did not seem to matter when there were opportunities to touch base through social media or precious trips to the U.S. All Bing could talk about were his children, oh how so much pride he had in how they have become successful in their own right. He worried about his parents as, the doctor that he is, he knew, it was likely that his parents would bury him and that this was not the natural progression of life. But he was a faithful man of God and drew solace in the fact that God knows all our needs and that his family will be looked after. To Bing’s children, you brought your father so much joy and pride! All he hoped for and desired was your success and happiness! To Bing’s family, the sadness is unfathomable, as with everyone who loved Bing. We draw comfort in God’s promise of everlasting life. Bing led such a fruitful and giving life; I told him during our last exchange, his rewards await him in heaven. To a beautiful life, we salute you my friend. Cheers and go peacefully.

  • Edvin was an active member of American Nephrology Nurses Association (ANNA) in which he served as a local chapter President for Sacramento Valley 509 in 2016. His commitment to Nursing excellence, leadership and continuing education didn’t stop at the clinics where he taught eager minds the concept of dialysis from the basic information to the most complex stuff. He brought light to lay people what Kidney disease is by giving a talk to church community and involving himself in healthcare policy. He gave a talk at the Sacramento State Capital among American Nurses Association of California to increase awareness on how a senate bill can adversely impact dialysis patients. We even visited our Senator Ami Bera in Washington DC during legislative day and was very supportive of me while we were in Arlington for the Nurse In Washington Internship. He was my mentor who helped and pushed me to be the best that I could be. He made learning so easy by injecting humor and analogy in his lectures. There were never a dull moment in his class. He always makes people think and keeps everything lively and fun. I will forever miss his grand lectures.

  • Dede Brooks says:

    Edvin touched many people in the dialysis community with his kindness and patience. Edvin always had a kind word and was so gentle. Truly a wonderful man. He will greatly be missed.

    My heart is broken, you left so soon. I lost a brother, a confidant and a very dear friend. I will miss you Bing, you know that well. Yet i rejoice because I know where you have headed and this gives me peace. I will see you someday (but not too soon okay?). For now i will hold on to all the memories. Rest well my friend in the happy place where there is no more pain. To Bing’s mom and dad, ate Edna and Edith, his children and the rest of his family my deepest sympathies. He was a good man, such a kind and gentle soul, very loving to people he knew. He loved you all so dearly. I pray for God’s presence to be with you and give you comfort and peace in your moment of grief.

    Bing and I first got in touch with each other here in the US when I found out that he once lived in Union City and that he belonged to the same church as my husband’s cousins. Since then, we would see each other in class gatherings in the SF Bay Area. Classmates were always happy to see him. In fact, years ago, I hosted one gathering for Jon Jo at my home in Union City, and I was happy that he came. From these gatherings, I could tell that he was well-loved by many. To Bing’s family, I extend my sincerest condolences. Bing will be greatly missed. Ninah Achacoso UPES ’73 and UPIS ’77

    Bing, I wish we had more time to develop our friendship after high school. You were a sweet, gentle soul and you have a special place in my heart that will remain forever. See you on the other side, my friend…

    Message from Roland and Sarah: We send our sincerest condolences to Bing’s parents, siblings, children and family. We remember Bing fondly – he had a kind heart, a beautiful smile, such a humble person, always courteous and gentle. We remember in grade school when his lola would be there taking care of him. We saw how close they were. To Bing’s family, we are very sorry for your loss. May the Lord give you His peace and comfort. 🙏🙏🙏 Roland and Sarah (Viloria) Diaz – UPIS batchmates of Bing

  • Mel Felipe says:

    Message from Diosdado “Jojo” Allado: My remaining but fondest memories of Bing were our times in High School living through the challenges and difficulties of our lives where he was a source of boundless energy and optimism and laughter. Someone once said, “Those we have held in our arms for a short while we hold in our hearts forever.” God is with you, old friend, as God will be with those you leave behind.
