“Kahit pala ang mga anak ni Dolphy ay nanggaling sa iba ibang Nanay ay pwede naman pala mag kaisa.”- Zsa Zsa Padilla.

15 days short to his 84th birthday.
Dolphy, The Comedy King passed away this evening,at 8:34 P.M., Tuesday, July 10, 2012 at the Makati Medical Center due to multiple organ failure, secondary to complications brought about by severe pneumonia, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, and Acute Renal Failure.
Dolphy’ s real name is Rodolfo Vera Quizon. He was born in Pampanga and was raised in Tondo.
I really feel sad. He gave us so much joy and laughter in times of trouble. I am really glad to have met him personally in Hong Kong on one of our summer vacations. I remember him as the ever smiling Mang Dolphy. He is now with my Dad and Mom in heaven. I bet they will be laughing together in heaven. Heaven will be a much happier place now with Mang Dolphy around.
Dolphy came from a very humble beginnings, and his admiration of comedians Pugo and Tugo influenced him to be a stage performer. His first screen name was Golay, and he used this name for his first movie with Fernando Poe Sr., the father of his friend the late action king Fernando Poe Jr.
Dolphy started his first career in a TV Show, Buhay Artista, at ABS-CBN with a talent fee of One thousand pesos. That was soon followed by many shows and movies.
Dolphy had 18 children to six different women. His last partner was actress Zsa Zsa Padilla.
Dolphy, the Comedy King, father, loving partner of Zsa Zsa Padilla is in the hospital right now, fighting for his life. I hope we could say a little prayer for his recovery.
Dolphy, who will mark his 84th birthday on July 25, 2012 was rushed to the hospital 13 days ago due to a chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), described as a “progressive illness.”
Eric Quizon said that his father had been in and out of consciousness, but he is still fighting and he hopes that we will still have him with them.
In an earlier interview with a newspaper, Eric Quizon said the family had not made big plans for his coming birthday because it all depends on his health.
Hongkong during holy week. One summer, we fortunately bumped into
Dolphy, Zsa Zsa, Vandolph and his two daughters with Zsa Zsa Padilla.
Like my Papa, Dolphy has gray eyes, both of them are kind and they always have a ready smile to everyone.
