It was on the news this morning, that Mr. Rodolfo "Dolphy' V. Quizon Sr. passed away at the age of 83 due after 11 months battle with pneumonia.
On my way to the office I chanced upon a TV installed in a tricycle terminal. I momentarily stopped and read the news headline saying that Dolphy had been a good father. I told myself he already passed away and confirmed the news over the online news and Facebook statuses of my friends.
According to the news, his partner Zsazsa Padilla and some of his children were with him when he died at 8:34 last night. His remains now lie at the Heritage Park in Taguig City.
Thank you for the laughter! This is the title of a news article published in Inquirer.Net. Filipinos knew him as the Comedy King. We will forget the laughter he brings in every episode of Home Along the Riles and blockbuster comedy films.
Rodolfo Vera Quizon, Sr.
(July 25, 1928 - July 10, 2012)
Condolences to the bereaved family of Dolphy.
