Former Senator Roy P. Duenas passed away on Sunday at the age of 80.
Senator Duenas served in the 13th Guam Legislature from 1975-1976.
Senator Duenas was also a cadet in the Merchant Marine Academy in King’s Point, New York. He graduated in 1966.
He then returned to the Academy for two years and received his Bachelor of Science and license to sail as a Merchant Marine Officer.
After serving in the 13th Guam Legislature, Senator Duenas became the CEO of Johnstone Supply, which specializes in HVAC equipment and supplies, and became a supplier for the tourism industry to Guam’s major hotels.
According to a statement from Speaker Therese Terlaje, “He was fondly remembered as the first legislative representative from the south in some time, as the leading vote-getter in Malesso’, Inalåhan, and Talo’fo’fo, and with strong support in Yona and Humåtak.”
We, at the Pacific News Center and the Sorensen Media Group, would like to extend our deepest condolences to Senator Roy P. Duenas’ wife Mildred; his children, grandchildren, family, friends, colleagues, and those who knew him.
