Guam - Retired Superior Court of Guam judge Ramon Diaz passed away on Sunday.  Diaz sat on the bench for 14 years and made Guam his home for the last six decades.  The former Filipino Community of Guam president will be remembered for his numerous contributions to the community and his involvement in countless organizations and charitable groups. 

Diaz was the first Filipino to be appointed as a judge on Guam and also served as an officer of the court in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. He helped organize the Knights of Columbus, the Guam Council and the Guam Assembly and was also a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars.

He is survived by his wife Josefina De La Concepcion and several children.
