He was born on February 28, 1948. He is the son of Ben Feleo, a film director, and Victorina Marasigan, an educator.[1]

He is the husband of actress-director Laurice Guillen and the father of actresses Anna Feleo and Ina Feleo.

Besides his work in film and television, he also appeared in the Philippine version of Coca-Cola's TV commercial for Cherry Coke.

Illness and death[edit]

Ina Feleo, daughter of Delgado and wife director Laurice Guillen, made this confirmation in a text message to abs-cbnNEWS.com.

ABS-CBN News reported that Delgado died in his home past 1 p.m. He was surrounded by his family when he died. Bibeth Orteza, Delgado's close friend, said the actor died peacefully.

Delgado was diagnosed with cancer in 2008. Early this year, Delgado assured that he was responding well to chemotherapy.

A healthy and strong Delgado even attended the birthday celebration of Sen. Jinggoy Estrada in February 2009. He announced there that he was in remission.
