Condolences for John Rosario

The PIBBA family extends its deepest condolences and sympathies to the family of John Rosario of Pohnpei, cousin of former PIBBA Teacher of the Year, Dr. Gregorio Tainatongo, and uncle of PIBBA Webmaster and former PIBBA Pioneer of the Year, Dr. Matilda Naputi Rivera.  Rosario left this Earth in the early morning of July 27, 2016, Pohnpei time.  He will always be remembered. God Bless him and his family. May he rest in peace.


We will always remember in our hearts, John Rosario...
