John Ingle, beloved to the GENERAL HOSPITAL audience as Edward Quartermaine, passed away on September 15, just a few days after his final poignant appearance on the show. "Very sad to share the news that John Ingle, known to most as Edward Quartemaine on #GH, has passed away. Rest in peace, Mr. Ingle,” wrote Head Writer Ron Carlivati on Twitter. Echoed Executive Producer Frank Valentini, "With great sadness, I share the news of John Ingle's passing. We love him and will miss him. John will always be a part of the #GH family." Ingle, whose beloved wife Grace-Lynne passed away in February, is survived by their five daughters, nine grandchildren and three great-children. His family posted on Facebook, "Father, Husband, Grandan, Great Grandan, 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. You were joy, light and love. Goodness at its very best. For the rest of our days, we will all do our best to continue to make you proud. Rest in peace and continue to spread your generous spirit in the heavens above."

So that is the 2nd Edward to die in real life.

I'm sad.   Very sad to hear this news.

He was also one of the voices of a dinosaur on "Land Before Time".

I'm not sure... I haven't watched GH in quite awhile, but the one article (on TV Line) said he had requested to come back one more time and was just on last week (9/11).
