On February 29, 2016 (Monday), the entire Filipino showbusiness was mourning as the veteran director Wenn Deramas passed away due to cardiac arrest. The Kapamilya director died at 6:20A.M. in the Capitol Hospital. His remains were brought to Arlington Memorial Chapels in Araneta Avenue, Quezon City and will stay there until Friday this week.
Atak said that Deramas was very emotional because of Wawa's death. He said that the director wailed to the point that he could no longer breathe that lead to his sudden attack.
Atak also mentioned that the doctors tried to revive Wenn for 3 hours and twenty minutes until they decided to give up. Direk Wenn's death has been a surprise to his family and his friends because he just underwent an angioplasty recently.
