John Ingle, the man who was most known for his role on General Hospital passed away on Sunday. The entertainment industry was shocked by the loss of the 84-year-old’s death. Back in August, the actor made his last appearance on August 24 on the daytime show, which he has been on since the show’s debut in 1992.
Ingle’s surviving family write in a Facebook post announcing the news:
“Father, Husband, Grandan, Great Greatdan, Brother, Uncle, Friend, Teacher, Inspirer, Mentor: May You Soar with the Angels. You will forever hold a special place in the deepest corners of our hearts.”
Now colleagues and stars have paid their condolences to the legendary actor upon hearing of his passing on Twitter, which has become somewhat of a tradition.
General Hospital’s executive producer Frank Valentini tweeted, “With great sadness I share the news of John Ingle’s passing. We love him and we will miss him. John will always be a part of the #GH family.”
Maurice Benard, also a veteran to the show, tweeted about Ingle’s passing as well, “John Ingle was a class act, a professional and the sweetest man you’ll ever meet.”
Steve Burton, was also amongst John Ingle’s colleagues, tweeted, “A great husband. A great father. A great friend. A great actor. A great man. We love you John.”
In addition, legendary actor-director Albert Brooks paid his respects for Ingle, who was close to him in a different way. He released a statement via Twitter that read, “R.I.P John Ingle. General Hospital star and my high school drama teacher. Wonderful guy.”
Do you think General Hospital will be the same without John Ingle?
