Over the weekend some sad news to report, Chad Stuart, one half of the popular folk music duo, Chad & Jeremy, and the father to one of General Hospital’s most talented stars, James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine), died following complications from pneumonia that were reported not to be related to Covid-19.

Chad Stuart had just turned 79-years-old on December 10th.  At first, Chad’s passing was posted on the Chad & Jeremy Facebook which read: “We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Chad Stuart, a father, a husband, a brother, a grandfather, a friend, a mentor, a teacher and an inspiration to many. Chad developed pneumonia (non-Covid related) after he was admitted to the hospital due to a fall. We ask for love, celebration but also space while the family adjusts to life without this incredible force. The family would like to thank his fans from around the world for the outpouring of birthday wishes and gifts he received every year. Chad took the time to read each and every card. The world has lost a legend today, but his voice will continue to touch our lives through his music.”

James Patrick Stuart took to his social media sharing these touching words and a heart-tugging photo in honor of his father:  “12/20/20  Higgledy piggledy hi-de-ho Miss you, kiss you daddy-o… Wish you’d stuck around a bit, But you were sick and had to split. Just know that I could not be sad When I’m this grateful you were my dad. Love you, Chad Stuart.”

 

As part of the British music invasion of the 60’s, Chad & Jeremy were best knows for their hits:  “Yesterday’s Gone,” “A Summer Song” and “Willow Weep for Me.”

Our thoughts, and condolences are with James and his family during this difficult time, and know that through his own musical talents which have been on full-display for GH fans and music fans, Chad’s legacy lives on within him.

My condolences. It’s always hard to lose a parent and other family members, especially over the holiday season. So best to remember “how grateful your were to have him as your dad.”

Prayers for him and his family. It’s never easy and even worse during the holidays. I’m grateful his father is not suffering now though. Sounds like they are trying to focus on the good times and that is good.
