Among the numerous celebrities he discovered were Ken Chan, and siblings Sanya Lopez and Jak Roberto, who despite their busy schedules, managed to make time to greet their "Tatay" via their Instagram accounts.

Part of Ken's message reads, "kahit wala ka na sa tabi ko ramdam ko at alam kong inaalagaan mo pa din ako."

"Mahal na mahal kita Master.Happy Birthday Tay! ????"

Jak, who started his career on Kuya Germ's Saturday late-night show Walang Tulugan, left a short but sweet note.

He wrote, "Happy Birthday Tatay, Thank you. We miss you."

Happy Birthday Tatay, Thank you. We miss you.

The Encantadia star wrote, "Tatay, I will always remember that day when you made me part of your Walang Tulugan family.

"Now, it's slowly happening. And I believe and feel that you're part of it."

She then thanked the late comedian, "Thank you Tatay, thanks for this opportunity. Promise I'll take care of it. Happy Birthday!!! Miss you tatay..."

For her part, Kapamilya star Vina Morales expressed her gratitude towards the TV host.

Kuya Germs's, literally had a rags-to-riches story.

From mopping floors in the legendary Clover Theater in the 1950s, he rose to fame as a comedian, radio and TV host, producer, and starbuilder.

His biggest break was when he became the host of the noontime variety show, GMA Supershow, and becoming the creator, producer, and host of That's Entertainment, the show credited as the launching pad of some of the most-recognizable and respected stars in local showbiz today.

Aside from his credits as host, performer and producer in both TV and film, he also hosted and produced radio programs, like Walang Siesta on dzBB.

He died of cardiac arrest on January 8, 2016, after being admitted at the St. Luke’s Medical Center in Quezon City.
