Oscar, though 81, never lost his sartorial elegance and charm.
His eldest daughter, actress Boots Ansor Roa, related that her father was a charming man to the end. He got a son, Alvin Anson. Moreno (Oscar Gamboa Anson in real life) died of cirrhosis of the liver. He had been under-going dialysis since June.
