THE ashes of former Negros Occidental First District Board Member Nehemias de la Cruz will be transferred to his hometown of Don Salvador Benedicto Wednesday.
De la Cruz, a former town mayor, died on March 20 this year.
His eldest brother Moises de la Cruz said they will bring his ashes from their house in Barangay Sum-ag, Bacolod City to Villa Ika in Don Salvador Benedicto.
It is a hilly place and it was his wish to be buried there, his brother said.
Family members led by his wife former Mayor Cynthia de la Cruz built a mausoleum for him, he added.
The town is headed by the late board member’s son, Mayor Marxlen de la Cruz. (GYM)
