Domingo (Domie) Layugan (Jan. 19, 1958-Aug. 2, 2014)

D omingo (Domie) Layugan went to the Great Beyond yesterday, in the early hours of August 2, 2014, in Metro Manila. After courageously battling cancer for the nearly five years, Domie went to a world without pain, a new life with eternal peace and happiness. When he died, he was the Deputy Manager of, and Geophysicist at, the
Energy Development Corporation (EDC) in Taguig City. He joined the Philippine National Oil Company (PNOC) in July 1979 and transferred to the EDC when it bought the Bacon-Manito Geothermal Plant (Bac-Man) from the PNOC.

Domie was a member of the Mapúa Institute of Technology's Class of 1979. He earned the degree of BS Geology at Mapua in its Intramuros, Manila, campus. Previous to his educational stint in Mapua, he studied at the Isabela State University
at Cabagan, Isabela, and he was a member of its Class of 1974. He was a proud native son of the Province of Isabela, where he was born on January 19. 1958.

Domie received a study grant from the United Nations University in Iceland, where he became a member of its Class of 1981. He completed post-graduate studies in Geothermal Exploration and Development. He also earned in Iceland a degree in Geophysics -- geothermal field of concentration.

W hile a member of a project-development team at the Bacon-Manito Geothermal site at the Pocdol Volcanic Range in Sorsogon Province in the early 1980s, Domie met Christina "Buding" Reyes of Barrio Bibincahan, Sorsogon .capitol town (now Sorsogon City). He courted her and their friendship culminated in marriage on August 5, 1988, in Manila. They were blessed with two children, Dominique and Gabby, who both finished college at the Ateneo de Manila University.

Domie traveled also to attend on behalf of his employer conferences in the United States about geothermal energy. He was probably one of the few Filipino experts in his chosen field of geophysics, specializing in geothermal studies. # # #
