FORMER Mindanao State University President Ahmad Domocao ‘Jun’ Alonto Jr. died on Friday, the school announced.

“The MSU administration, constituents, and community would like to express deepest condolences and sympathy to the family of former MSU President Ahmad Domocao ‘Jun’ Alonto Jr., who has just returned to his Creator,” the university said as it extended its condolences to the family of the bereaved.

Alonto served as MSU president in 1986, before being elected to a full term from 1987 to 1992.

Former Sen. Ahmad Domocao A. Alonto Sr., a prominent Maranao politician who created, among other things, the MSU charter, is Alonto’s father.

Alonto was a farmer who graduated from the Mindanao Institute of Technology (now University of Southern Mindanao) in Kabacan, Cotabato, and the University of the Philippines in Los Baos with degrees in agriculture.
