TV star John Ingle -- who was best known for portraying family patriarch Edward Quartermaine on General Hospital for two decades -- lost his battle with cancer on Sunday. He was 84.
The actor's family confirmed Ingle's death Monday in a Facebook posting. "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," the message read.
The executive producer of General Hospital, Frank Valentini, tweeted his reaction. "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."
Although well-known for his work on General Hospital -- which he continued until recently -- Ingle also starred on the soap drama Days of Our Lives from 2004-2006. He also appeared in countless other TV shows including Big Love, The Office, The Land Before Time and The Drew Carey Show.
