CUC senior power plant engineer passes away

ONE of the senior engineers employed at the power plant of the Commonwealth Utilities Corp. passed away on Saturday morning at the Commonwealth Health Center where he had been confined since September.

Edwin C. Gilboy

Edwin C. Gilboy, 60, started working for CUC through the Casa De Felipe Manpower Services in 1991. He was directly hired by CUC 10 years later.

His widow, Jesusa, said her husband was a hardworking employee who had to be confined in the intensive care unit because of lung cancer.

She said her husband became ill in July after undergoing a medical examination at St. Luke’s Medical Center in the Philippines.

She said they returned to Saipan on Aug. 23, 2019, but Gilboy could not return to work and was admitted to CHC on Sept. 23, 2019,

Gilboy is survived by his wife Jesusa and their three children: Lacy Mae, 12; Jed Michael, 10; and Stephen Matt, 7.

A rosary is being held through Oct. 27 at Kristo Rai Church from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. except Saturday and Wednesday. Friends and community members are invited to join the nightly rosary.

Funeral plans will be announced soon.

“It was his wish to be cremated,” Mrs. Gilboy said.
