A woman who has her own passions, aspires to be good at what she does, is intelligent, has a sense of humor, a certain breeding, an individual sense of style. Beauty fades. Someone who brings out the best in you. Someone I can talk to for hours on end. Photo credits: IG.

As a long-time ABS-CBN talent, and one of its performance venues named after him, The Dolphy Theater, the ABS-CBN Network issued a statement with regards to the passing awayof the Comedy King Dolphy:
ABS-CBN mourns the passing of Rodolfo Vera Quizon, Sr., known to all as “Dolphy”, the one and only King of Filipino Comedy.
Remembered as John Puruntong, Kevin Cosme and Pidol among many other names, he remains the symbol of every Juan de la Cruz who loves his children and can make light of life’s trials.
From being a peanut and “butong pakwan” vendor in a movie house to becoming one of the country’s biggest stars, many knew that Dolphy stayed humble and approachable. That is why his life, not just his roles, has been an inspiration to millions.
Dolphy’s first starring tv role was in Buhay Artista produced by ABS-CBN in the 1960s. He became a close and true friend of ABS-CBN’s Chairman Emeritus Eugenio “Geny” Lopez Jr. He would later on become a Kapamilya for more than 40 years.
Today, everyone at ABS-CBN joins his family and the whole nation in remembering his great life and career. Most of his works were huge box office successes, many were award-winning and all are now immortal in the hearts of Filipinos.
We will miss “Tito Dolphy”, an idol, a friend, and already a legend even while he lived.
