Nes Pamilar, 52, passes away

Decorated volleyball coach Nes Pamilar (July 23, 1966-January 12, 2019) passed away on Saturday morning due to heart failure.

He was 52.

Pamilar was rushed to the Philippine Heart Center, but he did not make it. He is survived by his wife Bing and their four children.

The venerated coach has been ailing since 2017, after he was diagnosed with a clogged artery. He underwent bypass surgery in November of the same year.

Pamilar recovered and even returned to coaching, manning the sidelines for the Tacloban Fighting Warays in the Philippine Volleyball League and the San Beda Red Spikers in the NCAA.

Those were, unfortunately, his final campaigns.

Pamilar has been in the volleyball scene for so long. He has been a winner since college, having won two UAAP titles with FEU during the mid-80s and Letran during the late 90s. He was also the last coach to steer the Lady Tamaraws to a UAAP championship back in 2007. He then coached the DLSU Green Spikers.

The usually-calm tactician has also reigned victorious in club competitions, having won championships in the Shakey’s V-League.
