Personal lifeEdit

He was born in Gapan, Nueva Ecija, Philippine Islands (then a US commonwealth territory from 1898-1946. Hence, all born in the Philippines just like Guam, Puerto Rico, American Samoa are considered US Nationals). He was a good friend of Manila Police Detective/Investigator Lt. Benito Sebastian-Ramos Deguzman, (father of Florante "Randy" Deguzman, a Realtor in Orange County, California, USA). Vic and Benny were peers in Nueva Ecija High School and their "messenger" to do nasty things then was the actress Nida Blanca, a few years younger than them. They all eventually moved to Metro Manila. Vic is the father of Chat Silayan and grandfather of Victor Silayan.[2]

DeathEdit

Silayan died of a heart attack on August 30, 1987.
