R.I.P John Ingle
Our beloved John Ingle/Edward Quartermaine has passed away at the age of 84. We miss him already! We missed him this year at the GHFCW Main Cast Event. John had been our Master of Ceremony for years. This year due to health reasons he was not able to make the event for the first time ever. Bradford Anderson graciously stepped in at the last minute for him. John was such a single soul! Please keep John and his wonderful family in your thoughts and prayers.
Facebook post by John’s family
“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. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”
Ingle most recently appeared on the ABC soap just last week, reprising his role as patriarch Edward Quartermaine, a character he had played since 1993. His career spanned more than three decades and included prolific appearances on other television soap operas such as “Melrose Place,” “Beverly Hills, 90210” and “Days of our Lives.”
In 1954, Ingle married Grace-Lynn Martin, and the two remained married 58 years, until her death February 11, 2012. The couple have five children together.
Executive Producer Frank Valentini made the announcement this morning on his twitter.
