Testimonials for Dr. Danny Terante



Dr. Alvin Culaba: “So sad. Let us all pray for his eternal repose and for the bereaved family.”

Dr. Anthony Chiu: “Dr. Terante was a great mentor.  He taught me in 1983 Strength of Materials.”

Dr. Elmer Dadios: “It is so sad. We will miss you Dani. The memories that you had with us will keep always in our heart. We will never forget you.”

Jenny Guttierez: “Condolence to Dr. Terante and family. He was my teacher in Mechanics.”

Rumel Atienza:  “One of my most memorable experiences in DLSU was when Dani, Alvin C, Ron G, and I joined a sack race during one COE faculty vs students field games. Being the presumed faster runners,  I was at the last to run and Alvin was first. We did not know that the first in the team would be running every lap until the 4th. And the last, only once. At the end of race,  all three of them were so exhausted whereas I was, by luck, still looking fresh. But we were all very happy. I guess life is a big sack race. You meet people that make life happy and memorable. For me Dani is one of them.”

Dr. Beng Manalang: “It was in 2011 when Dani asked me to speak and facilitate a Strategic Planning session for the board members of his organization, the Association of Structural Engineers of the Philippines (ASEP). It was there where I met the biggie wiggies and expert structural engineers in the Philippines!  It was a most enjoyable experience for us and from then on,  he always would ask me to do this with him for other organizations.  Lately I noticed he has been losing weight.  And I would ask his secret. He would just coyly say ‘he has intentionally worked at losing weight.’ Dani was a nationbuilder.  He invested in his students’ lives and worked at contributing to making things better in the community. His interest in water researches propelled him to mentor many others, being one of the few water experts in the country. I will miss our fun workshops, Dani! And your hearty laugh!  And your ever knowing genial smile, even from a distance! Rest in peace , Dani!  Your life, though short, was complete, well lived, filled with achievements, surrounded by family, friends and people who became better because of your presence in their lives.  Salamat, Dani!”


Dr. Eppie Clark : "The one thing that I know about Dani is his deep care for his family. I was there when he was so concerned about the health of his brother. I feel that he has extended this care to his GCOE family. Thanks Dani."


Dr. Lawrence Belo: "It was always fun having Dr. Terante around especially during the Green idol days. He always gives his heart out whenever he performs and he was always a crowd favourite. We will miss ypu Sir Dani.
Dr. Nilo Bugtai: "Dani is a good friend... he died just too soon and young. My condolences and prayers to the whole family and loved ones, May eternal light shine upon him and he may rest in peace!"

Dr. Yolanda Brondial: "Words are not enough to express my sadness over the early demise of  a very dear friend and colleague Dani Terante. Our friendship started when Engineering Science Dept. still existed. Art Gagelonia, Dani and I taught Mechanics ( Statics and Dynamics) and Strength of Materials almost every semester/term until we were absorbed by the Ch.E. Dept. Our fun, laughter, jokes almost always filled the faculty room and Dani was adopted by the Ch. E. Faculty .

Lord, we humbly commend to you Dani Terante, whom you loved so much with great love. Now that you have freed him from all the evils of this earth, bring him into your paradise where there is no more grief or mourning or sadness but peace and joy with Jesus , your Son and the Holy Spirit forever."
 
Dr. Raymond Tan: "Condolence to the family."

Sad to hear a very bad news about the passing of one of the most humble persons i know, Dr. Danilo Terante (Dani Cu Te). You were so supportive in the activity i, together with my PICE SLSU Main Campus Student Chapter officers conducted during our term. You were so generous to give us your time, and to share your knowledge and your expertise with us without asking for any professional fee. I saw how eager you were to help us, that was so appreciated. You were so humble to never asked for a VIP Treatment you deserved. Your help did not stop just after the seminar, it continued, our communication continued to the point of sharing not just professional, but also personal lessons. Thank you for never getting tired of answering my facebook messages, text messages and phone calls everytime i ask for your assistance. You have touched and inspired a lot of people and students. You will be remembered, Sir Dani. You are now in the arms of our Father. Rest in Eternal Peace, Sir Dan. Thank you for touching our lives.
