Ring 322 in 1997.  Nadela is survived by his wife, Rosena De Mesa, three children and four grandchildren.

My sis had his service in early 2000, for her daughter's 1st day. I have to say ,he was the best- performing clown- magician I have ever seen till now. I am saddened that he has passed away coz, I was thinking of acquiring his services again for this coming June,2010. My condolences to his family. He was great,and his hosting was superb.
