Pio Frago was considered as an institution by the community for having served in UP under several presidents, from Dr. Vicente Sinco (late 1950s) to Dr. Jose V. Abueva (early 1990s).
Known for his cheerful disposition, Atty. Frago, as fondly called by many, had a solution to every concern. Many sought his legal, as well, as personal advice due to his encyclopedic memory, vast experience and compassionate heart. He was survived by his wife, Erlinda and two daughters, Perlita and Maria Carina.
