Elmo's studio is located in this building on Des Voeux Road Central

The remains of Elmo, the Filipino musician and sound studio owner who police said   hanged himself to death in Sheung Wan, will be flown home for funeral services and cremation.

But his ashes will be brought back to Hong Kong where his wife and their two children live, according to sources in the Filipino community.
The parents, siblings, relatives and friends of the 40-year-old victim reportedly want to pay their final respects to him, hence the funeral services and his cremation in his native Laguna.

Elmo, who owned a sound studio and pub in a commercial building at 214 Des Veoux Road Central, was found dead by his 45-year-old Filipina wife at about 6:48pm on Feb 23.
The police said the victim used a wire to hang himself from the ceiling of his studio where he used to entertain customers in jamming sessions where he was the sound mixer.

Elmo, who used to be a family driver, also gave guitar lessons to members of the community.

But he is most fondly remembered by many for helping Filipino migrant workers in their times of need.

One cancer patient who used to work for him and his wife expressed her grief in a post on Facebook shortly after news of his death reached her.
The woman said in her post that she couldn’t forget the day when Elmo had to take leave from work so he could escort her back to the Philippines.

“Ito yong pic nong nagkasakit ako sa Hong Kong, siya talaga yong nag-volunteer na ihatid ako sa Pinas kahit may work dapat siya non. Share ko lang to, ang sobrang lungkot ko at masakit lang isipin ang biglaang pagkawala nya,” the woman said.

“Hindi lang ako ang natulungan kundi ang dami na rin sa iba namang paraan.” 

Elmo’s friends in Hong Kong, as well as his employer, are raising funds needed to repatriate his remains.
