Born on March 10, 1969 to parents Rolando Andaya Sr. and Rita Gutierrez, Rolando “Nonoy” Andaya, Jr. was a veteran politician who came from a political clan. His father was a former congressman, while his grandfather, Tomas, was once the mayor of Ragay, Camarines Sur back in the 1960s. His younger sister, Maribel Andaya-Eusebio, was the mayor of Pasig City from 2013 to 2016.
For his elementary education, Nonoy studied at De La Salle Santiago Zobel School and for his secondary education, he went to Perryton High School in Texas where he graduated in 1987. In 1991, he graduated with a degree in Business and Economics, major in Legal Management from De La Salle University, and in 1995, he graduated with a Bachelor of Laws degree from the Ateneo de Manila University College of Law where he joined the prestigious Aquila Legis Fraternity in 1992.
As a young lawyer, Nonoy started his government service with the Securities and Exchange Commission from 1996 to 1998. He went on to establish a political career as Member of the House of Representatives of the Philippines representing the First District of Camarines Sur, serving from 1998 to 2006 and then again from 2010 to 2019 where he held the positions of House Deputy Speaker and House Majority Leader and Chairman of the House Committee on Appropriations. In 2006, he was appointed as Cabinet Secretary of the Department of Budget and Management by President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.
Nonoy was married to Congresswoman Marissa Mercado-Andaya who was House Representative for the First District of Camarines Sur until her death on July 5, 2020 from cancer. They are survived by their two children Rolando “Ranton” M. Andaya IV and Katrina Isabella M. Andaya.
"My family and I join those who mourn the death of former DBM Secretary and former Congressman Andaya. Nonoy was an indispensable and trusted member of our official family as he headed the Department of Budget and Management for four years."
"As my colleague in Congress when Andaya served as the House Appropriations panel chairman during my term as Speaker from July 2018 to May 2019, he was an important ally who showed his meticulousness and dedication when he played a major role in cleaning up and fixing the national budget."
"He was kind and down-to-earth, a good friend to many, and well-respected by his peers. The Bicol region has lost another son it can definitely be proud of."
"Dios an mabalos sa saimong karahayan, Sec. Nonoy. May you rest in peace,"
-Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, Former President of the Philippines
“Buong puso akong nakikiramay sa naiwang pamilya at mga mahal sa buhay ni dating Camarines Sur Representative Rolando ‘Nonoy’ Andaya Jr. Gaya ng marami sa atin, malaki ang aking panghihinayang lalo’t bata pa si Congressman Nonoy at marami pang magagawa para sa ating bansa. Gayunman, maaring nagawa na ng ating kaibigan na si Nonoy ang kanyang misyon kaya buong puso rin ang ating pasasalamat sa kanyang serbisyo sa bayan. Salamat sa pagkakaibigan Congressman Nonoy. Karangalan ko ang makilala ang isang masipag na public servant gaya mo. Paalam.”
-Lito Lapid, Senator, Senate of the Philippines
"With his steady hand and efficiency, Majority Leader Nonoy guided the House of Representatives during a tumultuous time in the chamber. His abilities as both a legislator and a leader will never be forgotten. We are shocked by his passing. He will be terribly missed in the halls of Congress. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family."
-Ferdinand Martin Romualdez, Majority Floor Leader and Member of House of Representatives, First District of Leyte
"I wish to express my heartfelt condolences to the family of former DBM Secretary and former Camarines Sur Rep. Andaya. Dedicated to serving the Filipino people, he is known for his competent, selfless, and dedicated public service. During his tenure, he instituted reforms to strengthen the DBM’s services."
"May we all remember his passion and upstanding trait as a leader and a public servant. To his family, I wish you comfort, courage, and strength during this time of sorrow."
-Amenah F. Pangandaman, Cabinet Secretary, Department of Budget and Management
“Congressman Nonoy Andaya will be remembered for the vigor with which he infused discussions on the national budget, arguably the House’s most important national function. His father, Rolando Sr., was a mentor to me, who provided me with opportunities for success that very few senior members are willing to give freshmen congressmen. Nonoy, his son, would later follow in the footsteps of his father as Appropriations Chair, as I also did follow this mentor. In this sense, Nonoy was my brother, for we shared a common mentor, his father, in the House.”
-Jose Sarte Salceda, Former Chairman House Committee on Ways and Means and Member of the House of Representatives, Second District of Albay
