Just a good month after Governor Emilio Macias II passed away, Dumaguete lost with Quinton “Yayoy” Uy one more icon. “Yayoy” how Quinton Uy was known all around Dumaguete and Negros was one of those dive-pioneers in Negros Oriental and very high respected not only in the dive-community.
Quinton “Yayoy” Uy was a selfmade man who started as a professional Scuba Diving Instructor in the late 80s at the Dive Shop located at the Sta. Monica Resort. Some years later he started his own shop, the Deep Sea Dive Shop. His very good reputation was well know within the Scuba Diving Community and his Shop was always busy with divers renting tanks or refilling their own.
We had the pleasure to meet Yayoy many times the last few years, for Business and in private occasions.
Quinton “Yayoy” Uy passed away on July 25 2010 due to a stroke at the age of 52. He is leaving behind his wife Bella and his daughter Daphne.
You will be missed but never forgotten.
Rest In Peace
