Filipino veteran director Wenn V. Deramas passed away on Monday morning (February 29) after suffering from a massive heart attack or cardiac arrest. Pero ano nga ba ang dahilan ng pagpanaw ng batikang Direktor?
"According to June Rufino, friend of Direk Wenn, he managed to go to the hospital at around 2 in the morning to take his sister who suffered from a heart attack and died. Life can be really cruel when he too suffered the same fate. Could it be his faint heart couldn't handle the pain. June also stated that the doctors even tried reviving him a couple of times, but then no reaction from his heartbeat was seen.
June Rufino has also revealed that this wasn't the first time that Direk Wenn suffered from a heart attack. He stated that 2 years ago, Direk Wenn almost had a heart attack.
People were indeed shocked with this news, especially those who are in the showbiz industry. They claim that the last time they saw him, he was still strong that's why they couldn't believe with what happened to him."

Deramas is also known for directing many hit TV shows like Marina, Mula sa Puso, Saan Ka Man Naroroon, and many others.

"But the director didn't start as a big time filmmaking director. He started as a simple waiter. For some reason, his work achieved many things and even made people see the good within themselves. For me Direk Wenn was a big inspiration for people who suffered in the hardships of life/ Even though at first he started as a waiter but that didn't stop him to achieve his dreams. I think and I quote " Direk Wenn didn't die for nothing, he died with achievements and he died at the highest point in his life." - Toni Gonzaga

He created a lot of movies that made us laugh. But this kind of shocking news is like a movie of sadness because a man of himself, the protagonist, Mr. Wenn V. Deramas passed away. You will have never forgotten." - Froilan Abelita Abad
