General Hospital's Beloved John Ingle Has Passed Away!



In very sad and heartbreaking news for soap fans, those of General Hospital and his family and colleagues, John Ingle (Edward Quartermaine) died this Saturday according to a Facebook post from his family!

The post read:  “John Houston Ingle  May 7, 1928 – September 16, 2012 – 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. With love forever, from:. your 5 – J. Ingle Belles and the family, friends and loved ones you leave behind.”

When Ingle made his final appearance last week on GH, the family also posted this heart-tugging message on September 10th about his health and how much it meant to him to be part of a GH taping one last time:  “As our Dad moves closer and closer to joining our Mom, I thought I would share a bit of much needed “happiness” for the Ingle clan. For those of you that have followed Dad as “Edward Quartermaine” on General Hospital for all these years, I wanted to let you know that Dad was able to return to the set on August 24th, for what will undoubtedly be his last performance on the show. His scene was small and he had very few words…. but his presence on the set was monumental. Beginning with a standing ovation by the entire cast and crew as we entered the set, to the line of people waiting to hug and wish him well, it was a day that he (and we) will remember forever. Several months ago, Dad had said that ” if he only had one more day on the set of General Hospital, he would feel like he had won”…. On that Friday, with the help of one of his caregivers (Anthony), a wheelchair van and 2 of his daughters, (myself and Chrissy), that goal was realized. Entering the set of GH was emotional for Dad and it was obvious why he has loved being there all these years. Chrissy and I joked and said it was the ONLY “Hospital” we have enjoyed visiting since January! Ha! The filming did not take that long and Dad did a good job.”


“The cast and crew were patient and worked with Dad to get a scene that was meaningful. Standing there watching the monitor, we were struck by the reality that it was not Edward Quartermaine who was on the set….it was Dad surrounded by people who love and care about him. It was truly a wonderful afternoon. None of us know what tomorrow holds, but today we will hang onto the memory of August 24th and the love and support that was shown for our Dad. For anyone who might want to see the show, it is being aired tomorrow (September 11th), on ABC at 1:00 p.m. (PST). This is a new time slot for GH, for those of you who watch the show. The producers said it was September 11th, but then we heard that it may be a two-part episode. Might want to set your tivos for both days just to be sure. Last but not least,”Thank You” again to all of our family and friends for your love, prayers and support over these past few months. We truly CAN feel it:-)”

Ingle died at 84 and now will join is beloved wife, Grace Lynn who passed away back in February whom he was married to for 57 years.  Before getting into acting full-time, Ingle was a highly regarded acting teacher teach for three decades!

We will continue to bring you thoughts from the world of daytime as the day goes on Ingle’s passing.   Our thoughts and prayers are with Ingle’s family at this time.

Soap fans, please fee free to share your thoughts on John’s passing and his run as the amazing Edward Q. on GH here!

      So sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Ingle (I will always know him as Edward). I loved Edward and Lila………..and enjoyed them on GH for many, many years. It makes me very sad that they are both gone now. My deepest sympathy to him family……………….

    A giant of a man in the world of acting, having been a professional one himself for many many decades, as well as offering his immense talent and knowledge in the form of teaching new crops of actors trying to hone the craft.

    I’ve only heard beautiful things about Mr. Ingle. May he rest in peace with his beloved wife.

    And for the show, we have so few Q’s as it is. This one really stings. Now they HAVE to bring back Alan!!!! We need a patriarch and Alan is the ONLY one that fits the bill! Do the right thing FV!!!

    I can only cry at the moment. I loved him dearly. He was so kind and had a beautiful smile. He was like a dad in so many ways. Father to many of us out here in the world. Broken hearted, but glad he’s with the love of his life now. K

    Very sad. He joins all of the other wonderful GH actors that have passed away over the years: John Beradino, Emily McLaughlin, Lucille Wall, Anna Lee and others. They were all a joy to watch.

      John Ingle was the second Mr. Q – I couldn’t believe they recast when David Lewis passed, but Mr. Ingle took over the role immediately and never looked back. They both did a great job. Hope they DO NOT recast this time altho’ the Q family is running thin!

      • MBmomof3

        September 17, 2012 at 6:51 pm

        Agreed. We fans were blessed with TWO great actors as Mr. Q. No recast please. I believe they tried to recast John Ingle with Jed Alan. A fine actor, but it didn’t work.

        RIP John Ingle and thanks for the memories.

        Please bring back Alan!

    I am so sorry to hear of John’s passing. I have been a fan of GH for a long time, and will miss seeing him. I don’t think anyone can replace him as Edward Quartermain. My prayers go out to the family he will be truley missed.

    September 17, 2012 at 12:07 pm

    I thought nobody could replace the first Edward Quartermaine (David Lewis), but then here came John Ingle. He made the role his own and was brilliant! RIP Mr. Ingle.

    September 17, 2012 at 12:17 pm

    John Ingle will always hold a special place in my heart. He was always nice to meet at the fan gatherings and took the time to speak to you. I will miss him.

    The world lost a gentle soul in John Ingle. In the last few years he brought a true sense of love & appreciation to Edward Quartermaine. You could see that he loved Jason & Michael, but in the wisdom of years, he’d learned to accept them & the lives they’d chosen to live but love them all the same. I’ve no doubt that kindness, unconditional love, & sense of family is something that John Ingle personified in life, & it came across in his performance. God Bless & rest in peace.

    September 17, 2012 at 12:23 pm

    So very sad!!! Just a few days after that sweet episode aired… had hoped it wasn’t the last we were going to see of John/Edward. He is a truly talented human being and from interviews a lovely man! My sympathies go out to his family and friends and all of his colleagues at GH. We will miss him terribly! Enjoy… John and thank you!!!

    (Crying). No celebrity death has had me in tears. John Ingle in his final days reminded me so much of my own dearly-departed Grandfather (complete with the hat). 🙂

    What a wonderful legacy Mr. Ingle has had. What a beautiful sentiment and story from his family. No one should be sad. He is with the love of his life now. It must have been so hard for him the last several months without her, but they are together again and I am happy for him. He will be greatly missed on General Hospital. 🙁

  24. Christine

    September 17, 2012 at 12:28 pm

    I also wanted to add, in case some of you did not know:

    “Long before John Ingle stepped into the footlights, he was helping young people realize their acting aspirations as a teacher at Hollywood High School and at Beverly Hills High School. In fact, Mr. Ingle was the founder of the well-respected performing arts departments at both schools.

    After he graduated from Verdugo Hills High School — where he was Senior Class President — Mr. Ingle attended Occidental College to study theater and journalism. He graduated from Oxy in 1950 with a degree in theater arts and went on to get his teaching credential a year later. In 1955 he joined the faculty of Hollywood High and also began teaching at Los Angeles City College at night. Mr. Ingle moved to Beverly Hills High in 1964 where he taught performing arts courses for the next 21 years. During his high school teaching days, he also taught classes at UCLA for fifteen years. Among the more famous of his students are Albert Brooks, Nicolas Cage, Richard Dreyfuss, Joanna Gleason, Barbara Hershey, Swoosie Kurtz, Stefanie Powers, David Schwimmer and Jonathan Silverman. Mr. Ingle began his own acting career the same year he retired from teaching.”

    Mr. Ingle’s passing will truly be felt throughout Hollywood as he has touched so, so many lives.

    OMG! I just saw his last episode last week. What a character was Edward Quartermaine! When John first replaced Edward, I wasn’t sure I’d like him. But he grew to be a wonderful character. With his passing, it seems like I lost my father. He will be missed. My heart goes out to the Ingle family, AND to all the friends and fans of General Hospital. Rest in Peace, Mr. Q! Sincerely, Cat

    John Ingle was a terrific character actor. I enjoyed him on Days of Our Lives and General Hospital. It was amazing to learn of Mr. Ingle’s awesome career as an acting teacher and the lives he touched. We will always miss Edward Quartermain on GH. I am so glad the Frank Valentini and the GH family worked to have such a moving final scene for all of us. God Bless John Ingle and his incredible life and family – on and off screen.

    Michael you should put the interview up that Kimberly Mc did with him on her kimmeabreak site… it shows what family man he was and how much he loved acting and teaching.

    So sorry to hear of John’s passing. I really enjoyed watching his character on GH. I have been watching the show since 1977, when I was in grammar school. He will truly be missed. I send out my deepest sympathies to his family & friends & may he rest in peace.

    my last time I saw him was n hospital when Tracy gave antiodes to Drake’s daughter instead of Edward Quartermaine last week or 2 weeks. I will be miss him dearly, We(sob) will be miss you,old friend(I cried).
    RIP to John Ingle aka Edward Quartermaine

    When John first took over the role from the original Edward, David Lewis, I thought he is so different. But over the years John became the only Edward to me. His gruff exterior was coveing up the softie he was inside. He will sadly be missed.

    To get an idea of how wonderful he was check out Kimberly McCulloughs interview with him on UTube.

    Rest In Peace Mr. Ingle

  32. Christy

    September 17, 2012 at 1:06 pm

    John Ingle portraying Edward Quartermaine was one of my favorite rascals on TV. He was ornery as all heck, but there was always that twinkle in his eyes, which was of course a bit of Mr. Ingle shining thru. I will miss them both dearly!

  33. Diane

    September 17, 2012 at 1:10 pm

    I have been watching GH since my days in college(many years ago) and Edward has always been a pivitol character in all that is GH—John was Edward in every sense of the word–strong yet tender–with always a twinkle in his eye–he will be missed by all who love GH and him!!! May he know all the happiness and pleasure he has brought to so many people for all his years here on earth!

  34. Teresa

    So sad to hear of the passing of John aka Edward Quartermaine…Though it was shocking to read I was not at all surprised…I saw John’s last show & could tell then that he was not very well…Now I know why GH did not let Edward pass from virus that plagued Port Charles….John will be so missed by all of us who live our lives with General Hospital…may he rest in peace…:(((((

    There can never be another Mr. Q. There are few actors that cannot possibly be replaced and Mr Ingle is one of those. I will miss him. I realize that Mr. Q was only part of the man Mr Ingle; and there are many venues in which he will be missed. The most by far by his family and close friends. Will keep you in prayer.

    Tears……. ( Never cried for a REAL LIFE passing cast before) TEARS….

    This MAN will be MISSED, OMG will he be. The comediac tming, the love and protection of his family and great grand-children- You FELT it through the TV screen. He made you a BELIEVER.! The cast felt it, who worked opposite of him. His GH ” children” were also his beloved children.
    Listen, I LOVED the 1st Edward Quartermain, David Lewis (didnot like the 2nd) and then John (3rd) came in and I took a liking to him immediately. When he was out sick OR off over on Days (the althernate wasn’t as bad as the 2nd Edward, but now one could replace John BUT David (1st) because these TWO men were exceptional playing this part. Now I don’t know WHAT they will do. With ALL the changes in Daytime TV, and GH, I CAN’T IMAGINE having to ADAPT to not seeing John Ingle. People, I loved….. this man. If you wererfeeling Bad, watch John as Edward. If you’re feelong good, and what to get yyour laugh on, watch John as Edward. This character filled a void and his role was multi-dimentional ( Susan Lucci are you listening) .
    I hope they DONT kill off the character because the Quartermain family has about fallen apart. I do….. hope they do a show in his honor showing old clips, and maybe have Tracy dream he has died (which takes us to the old clips) and THAT be the days show, displaying his picture ‘ In Memory of ” at the very end. Then…. after a long search (and very little mention) a new Edward appears, and Tracy tells him, ” I have a dream you died. ” Of course the new Edward shouldn’t appear until around December or January, and mention of Edward (being alive) should only be spoken, SHORTLY beforehand. We need….. this character. Although, I HATE to see another Fantastic Edward Quartermain go.
    To John Ingles family: John was a star he on earth. Now, he is a shinning star wth the Greatest Superstar’s of ALL time (fortunate enough to be invited). You are BLESSED ot have the REELS of work and his many dimentions on camera. You are also blessed to have had him so long, and have such an amazing life with him,, especially as an educator. During your time of lost, know that myself, and soooooo many people are sharing the grief. What a blessing, he passed very peacefully, the way everyone wants to go. That maybe a testiment to HOW HE lived his LIFE.
    May God be with the family during this time.

    A truly kind, humorous, gentle man so full of life. A pleasure to have met him several times and richer in life for it. Loved hearing him whistling in the halls of the GH studio with that joy for life just emitting from him. Heartfelt sympathy to his families both personal and GH. The world has lost an amazing gift and heaven has gained an angel. Will miss you so. May you and Grace be driving together once again in the yellow mazzeratti you so enjoyed. RIP

    Mr. Ingle’s time on GH was nothing short of amazing. He was a gifted actor, and an integral part of GH. It will be sad to no longer see him as part of the GH family. I was touched by his final performance, especially after reading how it came to be. Thank you to the family for sharing that with his fans. What a beautiful gift to him, the cast/crew and the viewers that he was able to have that last performance, and in such a relevant storyline. Blessings to his family, including his GH family. He will be greatly missed.

    He will be missed and remembered always. So happy he is with his beloved wife again.n..

    I cried at “Edward Quartermaine’s” last scenes with “Tracy” & I could tell the emotions between John Ingle & Jane Elliot were real…I lost my dad on Sept 18th of 2004 & my condolences to John Ingle’s’s such a loss when you are talking about an incredible human being like he was & like my dad was…I am so happy to learn the wonderful things about him I didn’t know…but there are certain people you can just look at them & even if they are acting a part you tell they are a great person…
    I bet the people on the set of GH certainly feel the loss also so my condolences to them as well ….a fan of GH for almost 50 years…

    How can one become Edward Quartermaine after David Lewis so brilliantly started him off? John Ingle did that and more. His Edward made you annoyed one moment, shed a tear the other, and laugh hysterically in between. You can tell how much Mr. Ingle loved being on GH and how much the GH family loved him. Jason Thompson was very touching in his tweet that he wasn’t acting when Patrick gave Edward the thumbs up for saving Emma…those tears were real, as were mine.

    I want to thank Ingle for countless years devoted to not only teaching acting but showing how it can be done every day as Edward. He truly loved the show, his castmates and was truly a family man. Thank you to Frank & Ron for bringing Edward(and John) back for an episode that truly was a tribute to both the actor and his iconic character. We will miss you.

    So sorry to hear of his passing. I remember his scene on GH just this month and thinking how nice it was to see him. I feel he may have missed his wife terriably. He is at peace now, and my prayers go out to his family and his friends at the GH family. This has been a sad year of losses. He will be very much missed!

    This makes me so sad. I’m glad he got to do one more show and I’m sure everyone on the set was more than happy to patiently wait as he finished his scene. I remember when he came on GH to replace David Lewis and he just took over the role and made Edward his own. Sad day.
    RIP Mr. Ingle and condolensces to his family.

    I have been a GH fan since I was a little girl and used to watch it with my mom when Phil and Jessie Brewer were the main characters…and for years I have watched John Ingle portray Edward with so much zest and passion…his last episode was so heart felt!! I will pray for peace and healing for his family and for his GH family!!! May you rest in peace John (Edward) We will all miss you!

    I cried when I saw his last scene on GH–it was so sad and touching. I’m crying now of this very sad news. My heartfelt condolences to his family and to the GH family. You just couldn’t help but love him as Edward Q. He’s now reunited with the love of this life; may he rest in peace.

    I knew that he had been ill and I had hoped he would recover and be able to light up the set of GH once again. 🙁 I had no idea how truely sick he is but I am grateful and in awe of the amazing last scenes we, the viewers, got to enjoy of him. Edward’s moment with Patrick and Emma brought my mom and I both to tears and I appreciate his and his daughters’ sacrafice and dedication to make that happen, as well as the GH crew. His family and friends will be in my mind as they mourn the passing of this talent and amazing man, I know I will be. 🙁 I hope GH does not try to recast because despite not originating the role, John Ingle will always be Edward Quartermaine to me.

    I have enjoyed watching Edward Quartermaine for many years. His final curtain call was special as he gave his thumbs up to save Emma….a nice way to leave his fans. May he rest in peace.

    John Ingle was an inspiration to all of us who had the honor of working with him.
    He will always be in my heart.
    I wish him a safe journey and thank him for the bounty of love and grace he bestowed upon us.
    Although it’s a sad day, everyday with John was joyful
    and I am very grateful for being a small part of his life.

    So very sad to hear about the passing of John Ingle! Not only has daytime lost a treasure, but so has “GH” itself! But what a reunion it’ll be in nheaven when he joins John Beradino, Emily McLaughlin, Anna Lee, and the original Edward, David Lewis! I ask 2 things of the GH folks: To do a very special tribute to Mr. Ingle, and please DO NOT recast this role!!!!!! RIP, John, and thank you for always giving your best, because you were the best!!!!!!

    John Ingle was the embodiment of Edward Quatermaine. He had that role down pat! He could have been a member of anyones family. It wa so nice to see his final scenes that gave him a good send-off. He will always be missed. Thank you John for wanting to do those final scenes. May you rest in peace***…..

    As a wheelchair-bound male who receives home-health care-it does my heart good to see that Mr Ingle’s loved ones and caregivers cared enough to make this last wish happen. For some of you on this thread, I’m shocked at what I’m reading. While we ALL want GH to do right by EQ, now isn’t the time to ask for that. I’ve always known that soap casts were microcosms of a family unit, and what occurred on the GH set just proved that theory correct. But, now the family of GH is grieving, and that needs to be respected. The show WILL go on, and I am POSITIVE that John’s passing will be respectfully represented-they wouldn’t have gone to all this trouble if cast and crew didn’t respect him in the first place. As for future Q plans-all that will happen in due time.

    What a great man Mr Ingle was. He rememinded me of my grandfather, a wonderful and careing man. He was a husband,father ,a grandfather, and a friend to everyone on the GH.
    I have been watching GH forever. When Lila died it was very sad, now they will be together too.
    R.I.P. Edward Quartermaine you will be surely missed…

    I loved John Ingle’s and his Edward Quartermaine. I have watched General Hospital for 49 years, since I was 6 years old. That show is like family to me. I especially loved the holiday episodes. The Thanksgiving one comes to mind when Edward would sing, We Gather Together (I have an episode on my DVR). This scene is moving to me. I will really miss him now. His last scene was great. I hope the show honors him in some way. Thank you John for all the great years!

    I had always admire John’s work in many shows and movies he was in. I always consider him like one of the grandpa’s to me giving me a whole lot of advice and love through watching him play a grandpa on GH where at times he was a tough cookie with cursing etc. and then he was a gentle as a Teddy Bear who loved and cared for everyone around him. I always wanted to meet John as well as many others on GH and most of the ones I wanted to meet have either died in re-life or were killed off on the show or both–Or they were suddenly replaced with someone else playing them. John I. Will always be remembered as a good person, a loving actor and a family member to everyone including those who he had worked with for many years. I would always enjoy watching more and more the classic re-runs of GH and other shows with him so, I’ll never forget such a wonderful man with a great smile too. I love you John –Rest in Peace
    You will always be loved by this number one GH fan, A fan with a heart disease and just wants to show love to others who lose loving people who don’t deserve to die when we all deserve to live a whole lot longer than expected for. God Bless You John’s family. Kate Lewis Its too late to hug John but, I hope its not too late to hug others in his life in his family or from his soap opera t.v. show family called General Hospital. I love you John may God and his Angels watch out for you and watch over you for life & may you watch out for me and watch over me. I still need my all time favorite actor there for me.

GH Nurses’ Ball 2018 Conclusion: Anna Learns Henrik Is Her Son, Maxie Has Her Son, Ava Wows, Mike & Sonny Duet!

In the most moving and exciting episode of this 2018 GH Nurses’ Ball, all roads lead to the truth about Henrik and how he is really living his life as none other than Peter August (Wes Ramsey).  First, Robert (Tristan Rogers) who has punched out by Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) on stage drags him outside of the ballroom for his part in the cover[up.  Robert is worried about Anna’s (Finola Hughes) safety. Nina (Michelle Stafford) confronts her husband about how long he’s known who Henrik is.  She later figures out why he has been trying to whisk her and Charlotte out of the country.


Onstage Mike (Max Gail) takes a mic, and makes a moment of saying he has Alzheimer’s and then launches into the song he remembers,“The Summer Wind.” As he sings, he imagines being accompanied by a big band as he proceeds to deliver a showstopper.  Suddenly, in reality, Mike is lost and disoriented … scared he stares around at the audience.  Sonny (Maurice Benard) gets up to the stage to help his dad by cluing him into the lyrics.  Sonny sings with Mike and gets him through the song.  They receive a standing ovation.

Ava (Maura West) who is preparing to perform her number comes across a moment between Kiki (Hayley Erin) and Griffin (Matt Cohen) backstage where they are in a hug.  Little does Ms. Jerome know that Griffin was consoling Kiki after her lewd run-in with Dr. Bensch (James DePaiva).   Then it is Maura West, who truly brings down the house for this year’s ball with her Ava’s rendition of “You Don’t Own Me.”  That tune was certainly a nod to all those that Ava feels have wronged her.  Yup! Sonny, Griffin and Kiki we think are some on her list!   Dressed in a white pant suit and accompanied by a bevy of male dancers, West knocked the interpretation of the song out of the park, to make it work for her character and the Nurses’ Ball.


Elsewhere, Maxie (Kristen Storms) has gone into labor, and Peter is right there safely delivering her baby boy. Maxie is taken by paramedics to the hospital, while Peter calls Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) at Maxie’s urging to let him know what happened.  Spinelli has just found out, through Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason (Steve Burton) that Peter is Henrick!

Anna is walking into a trap on the pier as she waits for Henrick. When he appears, he has no idea that Anna is his mother, and thinks it’s all been a set-up.  He points a gun to eliminate her once and for all, but Anna says she has something to tell him.

The Nurses’ Ball concludes with a touching finale of “Champion” featuring: Epiphany (Sonya Eddy), Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), Bobbie (Jackie Zeman), Amy (Risa Dorken) and the other nurses.

So, what did you think of the final episode of the GH Nurses’ Ball 2018?  What did you think of the musical performances? Do you think Maxie’s baby will be OK? Will Anna be able to tell Henrik that she is his mom? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
