Engr. Rogelio "Roger" Corcino, Provincial Director of PSTC-Davao del Norte passed away today in Davao City. Roger is fondly remembered in DOST Region XI as a very nice person, approachable and kind. A colleague once said Roger is the type of person that one never gets mad at because of his ready smile.

Engr. Corcino retired early this year at the age of 59, leaving DOST XI after 23 years of public service. He is survived by his wife, Engr. Maria Corcino of Davao del Norte State College and daughters Iris, Ingrid and Inbemar.

Thank you for the memories Sir Roger!
