Benigno Servillano Aquino, Jr. (November 27, 1932 August 21, 1983)

Popularly  known as Ninoy Aquino.   He was a former Philippine Senator, Governor, Vice Governor and Mayor and a leader of the opposition to the rule of Ferdinand Marcos.  He was assassinated at the Manila International Airport (now named the Ninoy Aquino International Airport) upon returning home from exile in the United States.  His death catapulted his widow, Corazon Aquino, to the limelight and subsequently to the presidency, replacing the 20-year-old Marcos regime.
