    Mr Ingle is respected by the Soap Opera industry, and the beloved fan’s of General Hospital. When he stepped into play Edward Quartermain, we couldn’t imagine where he would take the role after such a previous and successful former player by David Lewis. But John Ingle hit the ball out the park, covering all the basis of the previous Edward, and played the role with an equally familiar stoicness, not to mention outstanding comedic timing. As the Head of the Quartermaine clan…., we the fan’s come to look for Edward to keep the family in tact, and look for words of wisdom from Edward to apply to our real lives. I am without a doubt certain that this is a role John plays in real life, by still working, studying pages of dialogue and long hours, at the rip age of 83 years, that Mr Ingle, is a stoic figure, a hero, and the hierarchy of his own REAL LIFE family; the other half of the pie that has held a successful marriage together for 58 long year’s, almost two/ three life times. May God bring peace to his soul during his time of loss. Mr. Ingle you are not only a hero to your children and grand-children for your hard work and dedication to family, but also to many of us that have watched you play your fictional role of Father and Grand-father as well. A role you have done PROUD, on screen and off….!
