    Actor John Ingle has died at age 84.

    Ingle, who made his final appearance as Edward Quartermaine in GENERAL HOSPITAL last week, died on Saturday according a posting by his family on Facebook.

    Daytime soap opera fans also remember Ingle from his run as Mickey Horton in DAYS OF OUR LIVES.

    His primetime soap roles included guest appearances in DALLAS, KNOTS LANDING, MELROSE PLACE and BEVERLY HILLS, 90210.

    Ingle won a Soap Opera Digest Award in 1998 as Outstanding Male Scene Stealer.

    His film roles included Heathers, Batman & Robin, and RoboCop 2.

    Before getting into acting full-time in the 1980s, Ingle was a teach for three decades at Hollywood High School then Beverly Hills High.

    Ingle’s wife of 57 years, Grace-Lynne Martin Ingle, died in February.

    Ingle’s family posted the following 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.”

    Sad news. He didn’t seem too good when he was just on GH last week. It was very brief and thought maybe he was playing decline because of the water poisoning but there did seem to be real decline.

    Rest in peace, and my thoughts go to his family. 

    I have a ton of respect for John and his talent and energy as a performer.  When DAYS cast him as nuMickey, I was incredibly skeptical.  But he did a wonderful job in the role, absolutely filling the purpose of the character and adding a great sense of fun and spark as well.  Of course, his work as Edward on GH will be his enduring legacy with daytime fans.  I’ll remember him very fondly.

    RIP John. If his last show is any indication of what they will do for a tribute, we are going to be in for a sad yet celebratory treat.

    John did an amazing job taking over the role of Edward. It was no easy task, as the previous actor was quite beloved. He brought an air of sophistication and class to GH. I will miss him.

    Wow…  God bless him, what a great actor and seemed like a loving, big-hearted guy.  Thank you for all the wonderful moments and memories.  I will especially remember his tenderness with Anna Lee’s Lila, Kimberly McCullough’s Robin, Amber Tamlyn’s Emily, and his incredible chemistry with Jane Elliot (Tracy).

    Really sad about this news…
